You are visualizing change in 50th Percentile LSAT for ABA-approved law schools grouped by Total Federal Investment in 2014 Graduates

We split schools up by Total Federal Investment in 2014 Graduates, and then show the change in the 50th percentile LSAT for each school's entering class between 2010 and 2014. For example, the first chart shows 50th percentile LSAT score changes at the 11 schools with Federal Investment ≥ $50 million. The purple marker shows the 50th percentile LSAT score in 2010. These charts demonstrate that not all changes in LSAT score are the same. Total Federal Investment is the amount cumulatively borrowed by law school graduates at a law school. We determined each group by that amount, and then found the average bar passage rate at the schools in the group. Note that the amount borrowed does not include interest that accumulated during law school, debt from other degree programs, or other debt related to attending law school.

Risk BandLSAT
ScorePercentile
Minimal Risk156-180≥ 67.4
Low Risk153-15555.6 - 63.9
Modest Risk150-15244.3 - 52.5
High Risk147-14933 - 40.3
Very High Risk145-14626.1 - 29.5
Extreme Risk120-144≤ 22.9

These charts (one chart for each group) have three parts:

1. LSAT Distribution: The shaded blue area shows the distribution of LSAT scores for all people who took the LSAT during the last three years. LSAT scores range from 120 to 180. A student scoring 120 is in the 0 percentile because the student scored better than 0% of test-takers. A student scoring a 180 is in the 99.9 percentile because the student scored better than 99.9% of test-takers. A student scoring a 160 is in the 80.4 percentile because the student scored better than 80.4% of test-takers. You can hover over the blue outline to see a tooltip for all each LSAT/percentile combinations.

2. Black and Green Bars: Each school has a bar. The start point for each bar, a purple marker, is the school's 50th percentile LSAT score for students who entered in 2010. The end point is the 50th percentile LSAT score for students who entered in 2014. If the 50th percentile went up, the bar is green. If it went down, the bar is black. If the score is the same, there is only a purple marker (no bar). You can hover over the bar (or marker) to see the school and how its 50th percentile LSAT score has changed.

3. Risk Overlays: We highlight the three highest risk areas, from high to extreme. Using these indicators, you can see which schools' bottom half students are most likely to struggle on the bar exam.

Current Risk Level

This table shows the total number of schools at each Risk Level, which is based on students who entered in 2014, grouped by Total Federal Investment in 2014 Graduates. Total Federal Investment is the amount cumulatively borrowed by law school graduates at a law school. We determined each group by that amount, and then found the average bar passage rate at the schools in the group. Note that the amount borrowed does not include interest that accumulated during law school, debt from other degree programs, or other debt related to attending law school.

Read this chart across each row. For example, the 11 schools in the Federal Investment ≥ $50 million group, 4 schools are "Serious Risk" and 7 schools are not (based on students who entered in 2014).

Average percentile decline for bottom half by group

Because LSAT scores follow a roughly normal distribution, it's difficult to compare raw score changes. On the following table, we show decline by percentile to illustrate how some declines were steeper than they first appear. The charts on the "Group-Component Charts" tab show how the meaning of the drop also depends on where a school started when assessing school admissions decisions.

Aggregate Change Between 2010 and 2014 for 50th Percentile LSAT

The top half of both charts — in purple — shows how law schools grouped by Total Federal Investment in 2014 Graduates are concentrated within a risk category based on students who entered in 2010. The bottom half of both charts — in black — reflect today, the students who entered in 2014.

 

 

Hover over a risk category (x-axis) to see the full breakdown. Looking at the first chart, for example, hover over the "High Risk" column. In 2010 there were 5 schools that qualified as "High Risk" based on 50th Percentile LSAT. However, in 2014 there are 18 schools that qualify as "High Risk." The tooltip will show how each of those two groups (of 5 and 18 schools, respectively) break down based on Total Federal Investment in 2014 Graduates.

Note the schools that reduced class size to keep admissions credentials steady, as well as the schools that drastically (and dangerously) cut standards in order to ensure enrollment did not drop so far that the school could not operate.
