Law School Locator (created by Boston College)

The Law School Locator is one way to research potential law schools to apply to, based on the average GPAs and LSAT scores of their last entering classes. Specifically, the range finder lists the 25th to 75th percentile LSAT scores and GPA ranges of first year classes at accredited law schools, entering in the fall of 2003.
