sucess in 1L grades or LSAT the better indicator?

I had been wondering about this question.  Just got THIS info from the BC website:

The national correlation between LSAT scores and first-year grades tends to be around +0.4. By comparison, the national correlation between undergraduate and law school grades tends to be around +0.25.

Everyone else probably knew this, but I found it interesting and wanted to share just in case.
