Best-credentialed Class Sets New Standard

August 11, 2006

Tags: Business & Community, 2006

At Wednesday evening’s Orientation Ceremonies, Dean Elizabeth Rindskopf Parker welcomed a stellar incoming class — the fourth consecutive year with ‘best-ever’ credentials — demonstrating the strength of Pacific McGeorge’s recruiting efforts, as well as the continued rise of its reputation.

The high quality of the incoming class is especially impressive given that the applicant pool for law school is down nationally more than 10%.

Statistics for this year’s 1Ls include a median LSAT score of 158 and undergraduate GPA of 3.42. While their LSAT scores match those of last year’s 1L class, that class had a slightly lower 3.23 average undergraduate GPA. The incoming class arrives from 27 states, as well as Japan and Canada, and 84 different colleges and universities. The most frequently cited undergraduate schools include UC Berkeley, UCLA, UC Santa Barbara, UC San Diego, Brigham Young University, and University of the Pacific.

Along with its excellent credentials, this year’s class is also among the most diverse the law school has ever welcomed, with nearly 28% of entering students of diverse background. Pacific McGeorge was already among the nation’s most diverse law schools, and this year’s class will likely enhance that ranking.
