Admission Statistics

Many applicants are interested in knowing the LSAT scores and GPAs of law school applicants from Brown and more broadly. As always, students interested in law school should remember that the quantitative part of law school applications is a useful tool for assessing likelihood of admission, but statistics are far from being the sole or even most important determinant of acceptance. Every year we see students with below median LSAT scores and GPAs accepted to highly selective law schools – and we get objective proof that perfect scores and GPAs do not ensure acceptance. Use this information judiciously.

On this page you can find information about application and acceptance rates for all law schools for the past several years. 

In addition, linked below is data on the median highest LSAT and median GPA for Brown students who were accepted to law school from the past several years, and for schools at which at least five Brown students were accepted.

Brown students and alumni can access Law School Application Data here.
