2011 Princeton Review Law School Rankings: Most (and Least) Selective Admissions

Princeton Review (2011) I previously blogged the lists of the Top 10 law schools in eleven categories posted on Princeton Review's web site in connection with its publication of the 2011 edition of Best 172 Law Schools (with the University of Cincinnati College of Law again on the cover).  The rankings are the result of Princeton Review's survey of 18,000 students at the 172 law schools, along with school statistics provided by administrators.

I have extracted from the individual profiles of the 172 law schools all of the available data to rank the schools in six categories. I will report each day on one of the ranking categories.

Admissions Selectivity Rating: How competititve 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 enrolled in the law school. We collect this information through a survey that law school administrators completed for the Fall 2010 entering class.

Here are the law schools that are the most and least selective in admissions among the 172 law schools profiled in the book (an asterisk indicates that the school did not supply the Princeton Review with the requested statistical information):
