What criteria do law schools use to evaluate an applicant for admission?

The two main components the admission committee review is the applicant's undergraduate grade point average (GPA) and the LSAT (Law School Admission Test) score. In addition, letters of recommendation (academic), the personal statement, leadership and extra-curricular activities such as community service are considered. Thus, it's important to maintain a strong academic record and establish professional relationships with your professors and instructors early in your undergraduate studies.
