What percentage do you think law schools view the strength of an applicant? 

I think it more like

40% - LSAT
30% - GPA/Transcripts
20% - Personal/Diversity Statements
10% - Letter of Recommendations
5% - Resume/work experience/graduate studies/extracurricular activities (Bonus Points)

If you are a kid straight out of college, probably that's close. If you have been out several years I'd say work experience % increases with age. How could you give a 30 year old with military or peace corps or law office work the same 5% you give to some kid who's work experience is McDonald's during the summer?
