How does my GPA and LSAT Score factor into getting admitted?

GPA and LSAT scores factor heavily into admissions decisions, so the higher they are, the better. However, the range of scores and grade-point averages of accepted students varies by school. Data on the scores/grades of the applicants and admitted students at many law schools are available at the LSAC Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools.

However, it is important to keep in mind that admissions officers look at your entire application, and, while the numbers may hold some predictive value, your personal statement and letters of recommendation will contain qualitative information that law schools will also take into account.
