The Boston College - Law School Locator

The cells above and to the right of your competitive area represent "reach" schools.

Apply to some reach schools if there are one or two that you truly want to attend for very specific reasons.

Provide a clear reason for them to accept you.

Explain the special programs that interest you, unusual experience you have, or other personal characteristics that make you an attractive candidate for each school.

All schools accept applicants with marks above and below their mid-range scores.

Choose some "safe" schools, and consider "reach" schools in addition to those where your numbers make you competitive.

A low score in either your GPA or your LSAT needs to be offset by a higher score in the other area.

The Law School Locator lists the 25th to 75th percentile LSAT scores and GPA ranges of first year classes. This means that half of a law school's entering class scored in the range indicated.

The Locator can help you identify schools where your scores and grades are most competitve for admission.

While the chart is useful in evaluating law school choices, it cannot determine where you should or should not apply.

Your "competitive" area are cells where your scores are in the top half of the range.

Your statistical chance of admission is estimated at fifty-fifty based on the numbers alone.

Your personal statement, letters of reference, and resume become most important in determining admission.

In the cells below and to the left of your competitive area you will find schools that you might consider "safety" schools on the basis of your numbers alone.

Even the highest scores do not guarantee admission.

Pay close attention to presentation and qualitative aspects of your application even at schools you consider "safe."
