Average LSAT Score of Matrics?
« on: December 09, 2007, 09:03:56 PM »

So I know the average LSAT score is 151, but what is the average of people who actually end up attending law school?

High 150's?

Maybe even 160, because you have to figure the minimum score to get in anywhere is - I don't know, 140, high 130s?

Incidentally, there's a famous constitutional scholar whose first name is Akhil... I'm blanking on his last name.

This would be easy enough to calculate from the info published by LSAC. It would just take a lot of work.

Thanks for posting that data. It looks like the 25%-75% LSAT range for all matriculated students is 155-160 and the 25%-75% GPA range is 3.13-3.63. Compare that to the 25%-75% range of the top-15 USNWR ranked schools. Pretty big difference.
