Boston College Law School LSAT Scores

Boston College Law School was founded in 1929. Currently, it sits at number 30 in the US News rankings for law schools in the U.S. In 2015 it had 3,631 applicants and enrolled 234 of them.

It’s a private, Jesuit law school, just outside of downtown Boston, MA, and has to compete directly with Boston University and Harvard for applicants and job prospects. You’re going to spend around $43,511 per year in tuition, so I’d recommend looking at scholarship options if you get accepted here.

Summary of the 2015 Incoming Class

The current class at Boston College Law School has a median LSAT score of 162. The 75th percentile is 163, and the 25th percentile is 158. The lowest score Boston College accepted was a 148, while the highest score was a 180.

Boston College Law School LSAT ranges

164 and higher: If you can score higher than a 163 you are in great shape. Make sure your grades are decent, anything over a 3.56 will do.

162-163: Scoring in this range will put you in a good position to get accepted. You’ll want a higher GPA, maybe more along the lines of a 3.65 or more. If you can do that, you’ll be ahead of much of your competition.

158-161: Scoring in this range will make getting admitted much more difficult. You will need to nail your application, probably have a diverse background, and want to have a GPA sitting over 3.85, minimum. If you can’t do those things, your chances of getting in will be pretty slim, though it could still happen.

157 and lower: Scoring lower than a 158 will put you in a very difficult position. Over 75% of the accepted applications were higher. You’ll have a lot of climbing to do for sure. First, I’d recommend retaking the LSAT. Second, you should seriously consider other law schools in the area. There is Northeastern Law School and Suffolk Law school, at least in Massachusetts, that you should consider.
