At Columbia Law School, Harvard Law School and Yale Law School, the median LSAT score for this year’s entering class was 174, which was the highest of all law schools.

All three law schools saw median scores slightly increase, compared to the 2020 1L class, according to a chart posted on the TaxProf Blog. It ranks law schools by LSAT scores and is based on Standard 509 Information Reports data that the ABA released Wednesday.

Law schools with the lowest median LSAT scores for the 2021 entering class are the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico School of Law, the Inter American University of Puerto Rico School of Law and the Southern University Law Center.

Those medians were 135 at Pontifical Catholic, 142 at Inter American and 146 at Southern University, according to the TaxProf Blog, which is run by Paul Caron, dean of the Pepperdine University Caruso School of Law.
