Georgetown Law LSAT Score Ranges

168 and higher: This is in the safe zone, insofar as a school this competitive has a “safe zone.” As long as you have a solid GPA, your chances of getting into the law school with a score like this are very good. However, having a high GPA and a good test score won’t guarantee your admission. Be sure to make your overall application 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 law school states that it will take into account extenuating circumstances when evaluating candidates’ 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 and/or some other distinguishing aspect in your application to get accepted.

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.
