* The average for "Admissions Statistics," "Bar Exam Statistics," and "Employment Statistics" were calculated using the six (6) year average for 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007 as released by the law schools. The data for 2003 was omitted as ILRG did not compile the data that year.
** Medians have been calculated by averaging the 25th and 75th percentile values released by the law schools and have been rounded-up to the nearest whole number (for LSAT scores) and to the nearest one-hundredth (for GPAs).
*** Bar passage rate for each designated year reflects the average among first-time test takers during the immediately preceding summer and winter administrations of the bar exam.
