Georgetown Law LSAT Score Ranges

168 and higher: This is definitely in the safe zone. As long as you have a solid GPA, your chances of getting into the law school with a score like this is very likely. However, having a high LSAC GPA and a good test score won’t guarantee your admission. Be sure to focus on making sure your overall application is polished and well-rounded.

167:  If you get a 167, you are definitely in the “in-the-running” zone. You’ll also want to have good grades. However, the Dean of the law school has commented that if there’s a good explanation for lower grades, such as a severe hardship, the admissions office will sometimes overlook lower grades.

164-166: This is the “pretty-please” range of LSAT scores. Your score is lower than the majority of the accepted students. You’ll need amazing grades, like a minimum of a 3.85, or some other distinguishing aspect in your application, like overcoming serious adversity, or coming from a diverse background.

163 and below: This is the “rare exception zone.” If you’re in this range, you can still apply. However, you’ll want to either apply to other schools, or consider taking the LSAT again.

In addition to the LSAT, Georgetown Law announced it will begin accepting GRE scores as well as LSAT scores for the 2017-2018 admissions cycle. So, you may want to consider whether the GRE is right for you as you navigate the law school admissions process.
