The Wall Street Journal made a splash this past week by doing an ever-so-scientific study by comparing the LSAT medians from three years ago with the new numbers. Above The Law expanded on the study with a few more top law schools.
What did they find?
Not much has changed. Yale Law School didn’t budge at all. Harvard’s numbers are down one point; and it was only Columbia’s 75th percentile that dropped down. Chicago’s bottom fell out a bit — two points to 167. Berkeley. UVA and Michigan also saw a single-point decline in their respective 25th percentiles.
So, for the most part, a point here or there. Which means it’s just as hard to get into a top law school, right?
