The Selectivity Index™ is calculated based on data found in the 2022 US News rankings released in March 2021 using the median LSAT Score, median undergraduate GPA and acceptance rate for each school’s full-time program entrants.

The Selectivity Index for each school is calculated as follows: 

1. First, calculate the Selectivity Score which equals: (LSAT Score) x (GPA) x (1 – Acceptance Rate)
2. The Selectivity Index = 100 x Selectivity Score / (the highest Selectivity Score)
