    Well that is very interesting, but I think in addition to your LSAT scores the personal statement you give on your application separates the men from the boys in terms of being accepted at a law school. Once in school it's your dedication to the work and knowing how to play the politics of the program. I had a double major in education and theatre. I graduated in the top 5% of my class at an ivy league school.
