Online Law School Admissions Calculators and Predictors

Law school admissions calculators use your LSAT score and GPA to determine the probability that you will be accepted to a particular law school. Although LSAT score and GPA are not the only factors in the application review process, these admissions calculator tools provide a helpful quantitative assessment of your overall law school admissions chances.

7Sage Law School Admissions Predictor

7Sage Law School Admissions Predictor uses self-reported data from LawSchoolNumbers to predict law school admissions chances. 7Sage analyzed the LSAT and GPA data of approximately 400,000 law school applications and considered the impact of early application, underrepresented minority status, and international status on admissions.

To use the calculator, input your highest LSAT score and cumulative GPA. The tool provides your estimated chances of admission at 203 law schools. In addition to ranking your chances, the tool provides 25th and 75th percentile LSAT and GPA information for each school, as well as acceptance rate, yield, and the number of first-year law students in the class.

To get the most reliable results from the predictor, 7Sage recommends using your LSAC GPA.

HourUMD Law School Probability Calculator

Like 7Sage, HourUMD Law School Probability Calculator uses self-reported data from LawSchoolNumbers. Once you enter your LSAT and GPA, the tool displays the percentage of Law School Numbers applicants with similar stats who were accepted and waitlisted, as well as the percentage who were accepted with lower numbers than yours. The tool also displays the percentage of LSN applicants who received scholarship money and the average award size.

You can enter specific LSAT and GPA numbers into the calculator, but to obtain the most useful information, HourUMD recommends that you input a range, such as "170-173" for the LSAT and "3.6-3.9" for the GPA. The range option may be useful if you have a high LSAT and a low GPA, or a low LSAT and a high GPA.

HourUMD is slightly less helpful for those who are looking at law school programs outside of the top tier, because there is less data available for those schools.

Law School Admission Council’s UGPA/LSAT Search

The LSAC calculator uses admissions data from the previous year's full-time entering class to compile its results. Data is presented via colored bars to show a "score band." The bars show where you fall on the school's 25th to 75th percentile ranges based on your undergraduate GPA and LSAT score.

You can search schools alphabetically, by geographical location, or by keyword. You can also search for a specific law school to see how your scores and GPA stack up against other applicants at your chosen law school. A separate table allows you to search for "All Law Schools," which will bring up an alphabetized listing of all accredited law schools in the United States. The search site indicates that it is approved by the American Bar Association.

One potential downside is that applicants considering some of the top law schools choose not to participate in the LSAC calculator, so their data is not included in the overall scoring.

Law School Predictor

The Law School Predictor uses admission index formulas from law schools as well as the 25th- and 75th-percentile information from matriculated students (as published in U.S. News & World Report). The calculator tool is published under license to 

To use the calculator, enter your LSAT score on the first yellow bar below "LSP" and your GPA score on the second yellow bar. To activate the predictor, click the "Agree to Terms of Use" tab at the top left corner. A ranked list of reach, target, and safety law schools, based on the stats you entered, will then appear.

The LSP comes in three versions: The Top 100 Full-Time Programs, Unranked Full-Time Programs, and Part-Time Programs. Another notable feature of the LSP is that it pays special attention to “splitters" (applicants with high LSAT scores but low GPAs).
