LSAC School Report

Is it possible to see the information and stats LSAC sends to the different law schools concerning an applicant's undergrad institution in some kind of spreadsheet? I forget the name of the reports but it includes stats on the school-wide GPA, how many students apply to law school from that undergrad institution, etc.

I think you are referring to the ABA 509 report.

A consulting firm that works with people wanting assistance with the law school application process, Spivey Consulting, has a link to a spreadsheet that has 509 data.

Nah it's not the 509 Reports, it's specific to an applicant's undergraduate institution with stats on students from said undergraduate institution. These reports can give a law school a sense of grade inflation at an applicant's undergraduate institution

Outside of HYS, no one will care. Law schools are ranked on what your GPA is not on if your schools grades are a joke.

it's also too granular an investigation. even within an institution, there's variance of grade inflation between schools/majors.

I also don't think anyone will have that info for all schools, because as far as I'm aware LSAC only sends it to you for your own undergrad. And, as everyone said, it's basically meaningless info anyway. My understanding is law schools only look at it if you went to some undergrad they've never even heard of just to get a sense of things there

LSAC used to publish these data but they're hard to find now. Had min/mean/max GPA and LSAT as well as the population of people from an undergrad applying to LS

Is there any information schools have to submit to ABA/LSAC on how their gpa/lsats that were used for admission purpose correlated with their actual gpa in the 1L, 2L, so forth?

or, is there same 1L gpa data for for different categories like percentage of STEM majors, grad degrees, age, occupation etc they use in matriculating class profile/promotions?

nope. anecdotally, no noticed correlation for GPA/LSAT. some correlation for majors/occupation (philosophy, journalism, and STEM do better).
