Preview Of The 2022 U.S. News Law School Rankings: LSAT

UpdatePreview Of The 2022 U.S. News Law School Rankings: Admissions

The 2022 U.S. News Law School Rankings (based in part on 2020 admissions data) will be released in March (the 2021 rankings are here). In the current methodology, a law school's median LSAT and GRE scores count 12.5% in the overall ranking. Because the ABA only reports GRE scores for law schools with 10 or more admitted students with GRE scores, the ranking below are based solely on median LSAT scores:
