Do LSAT percentiles include part-time admissions?
« on: December 24, 2007, 02:33:49 PM »
I posted this on the Law School Rankings forum, but there's not much action there.

Does anyone know if the 25th-75th percentile stats for admitted law students include those admitted for part-time studies? I'm looking to enter GWU part-time. I've got a LSAT score of 158, undergrad GPA 3.76 and M.S. GPA 3.50, both in Computer Engineering. Do I have bad, decent or good chances to get in?

PT #'s for GW:

3.28 - 3.47 - 3.66
161  - 162  - 164


Edit:  These are from the entering class of 2006.  They had a huge LSAT spike last year.

And, no, they don't.  PT admissions are harder to call because the numbers don't matter as much.  Technically, anybody has a shot.  Your LSAT might be  low for GW PT though.

If I remember correctly, the law schools do not have to report their PT numbers so i doesn't matter as much. Some schools on their web site will give actual medians for their school, but in general I don't think they list it.

I would say just assume if you're applying PT to a school that the class median is a maybe a couple points lower than their FT. Don't quote me on this, because I'm not sure, but I have seen that PT generally has lower numbers and more work experience than FT.
