As most prospective law students know one of the main requirements for admission to a law program is LSAT test. Few law schools don’t need LSAT but majority of programs require from applicants to take LSAT and it is not possible to apply to law school without LSAT score. Average median LSAT score for students enrolling in fall 2016 was 155, but on Insider Monkey’s list all schools have median score ranging from 142 to 152. At the same time median GPA does not exceed 3.18, which is pretty low especially compared to some of the most competitive law programs, such as Yale, where median grade point average is 3.91.
Besides median GPA and LSAT score Insider Monkey’s article also reveal data about tuition, bar passage rate and employment rates for each of these 11 schools. As you will see, some of the least competitive law schools in America have very low bar pass rate. Thus while these schools might lure you with loose admission policy be aware that some of them are not the best investment in the future. Insider Monkey’s ranking also include programs with relatively low requirements which have bar pass rate as high as 90% and these programs are definitively worth considering.
