Vanderbilt Law School LSAT Scores

Vanderbilt Law School has been around for quite a while. It was founded in 1874, and like most law schools at the time, had an extremely small incoming class. In total, the school had seven students and eight professors.

Fast forward 150 years, Vanderbilt’s most recent incoming class consisted of 162 new students. The school is currently ranked 16th in the country by US News, and has consistently been ranked in the top 20.

Right now tuition is $51,360 per year and the student to professor ratio is 11 to 1.

LSAT score ranges

169 and above: With a score like this, you should feel really comfortable about getting accepted. Most of the scores are below this, so your chances are very good, as long as you have a good GPA. Don’t stress out too much. Just do a solid job on your application, limit the typos, and getting in probably won’t be an issue.

166-168: Your chances diminish a bit if you score in this range. However, you still have a solid score, and you’ll just need to make sure you have a solid GPA, like 3.8 and above, to keep your chances high.

161-165: Your grades will matter a lot if you score in this range. You’ll want to be as close to a 4.0 as possible, and you’ll want to knock your personal statement out of the park. Focus on overcoming some kind of adversity, or your diverse background, to get ahead of the pack.

160 and below: With a score in this range, you’ll want to consider another school. If Vanderbilt is your dream school, you should still apply,but make sure you’re applying to at least a couple of other schools where your LSAT score will be more competitive.. You also should consider taking the LSAT again.
