If you don't know by now that you need a good LSAT score to have a competitive law school application, consider yourself officially informed. LSAT scores have always been an important piece of the application process. This is due to several factors, but one of the main reasons is that GPAs vary widely across schools and majors. How does an admissions committee member compare a Classics major with a 3.3 from New York University with a physics major with a 2.9 from Alabama State University? The LSAT provides a standard whereby law schools can evaluate students from different schools on the same test.
You may also be aware of the fact that interest in law school is soaring. LSAC Director of Communications Wendy Margolis confirmed that in 2009-2010 more people took the LSAT than in the history of the test--over 170,000.
What does this mean for law school hopefuls? At least two things. (Three if you count eating an entire tub of chicken while watching Glee.)
