Princeton Review's Law School Rankings: Admissions Selectivity

Princeton_review_1With U.S. News & World Report set to release its new 2007 law school rankings on April 1, I want to return to a subject I previously blogged:  The Princeton Review's book, Best 159 Law Schools.  This week, I will focus on five of the quantitative rankings based on a survey of more than 15,000 students and statistics provided by law school administrators.

Admissions Selectivity Rating:  How competitive admission is at the law school, on a scale of 60 to 99.  Several factors determine this rating, including LSAT scores and the average undergraduate GPA of entering 1L students, the percentage of applicants accepted, and the percentage of accepted applicants who enroll in the law school.  We collect this information through a survey that law school administrators complete for the Fall 2004 entering class.

Here is the Princeton Review's ranking of the Top 29 law schools based on Admissions Selectivity (and their scores):

1.  Yale 99
1.  Harvard 99

4.  Penn 97
