Do law schools only use an applicants GPA and LSAT score as criteria for admission?

Law schools focus on the applicant’s LSAT score and GPA. On a typical undergraduate’s application, these two factors are paramount. However, most law schools will tell you that the student’s entire application is reviewed and considered. As a result, it would be to your advantage to supplement your curriculum with activities that demonstrate leadership, initiative, creativity, responsibility, analytical skills and research ability. Some students do not apply to Law School directly upon their undergraduate graduation, and choose instead to work for several years before applying. Generally, the longer you have been out of college, the less emphasis law admission officials will place on your GPA. In these cases, it is possible that more weight will be placed on your LSAT scores and outside activities as these are much more current reflections of your ability.
