The LSAT, as you may know, is not a pass/fail exam. Rather, it’s based on a scale of 120 to 180. If you get a 120, you won’t be going to law school, and, if you get a 180, you pretty much have your pick of schools to go to. Not surprisingly, most people don’t get within 10 points of either extreme. Very often I get the question from a student, “What LSAT score do I need?” Well, that depends on a few things. So, let me ask you a few questions, and maybe we can figure it out together.
The NCAA tournament is upon us, and your bracket is probably already busted. (Thanks, UAB!) Yup, picking basketball teams at this time of year is a crapshoot. But have you ever wondered what the bracket would look like if you picked schools by their median LSAT score?
What’s that? You haven’t wondered that at all? Well, we must have more time on our hands than you do. Probably because you’re studying for the LSAT. So we filled out a whole 64-team bracket based on law school median LSAT score.
A couple of notes:
Only 42 of the 64 colleges in this year’s field actually have law schools. Any school that doesn’t was disqualified.
