Standard 509 Reports
Once you have a list of potential institutions of interest, you are ready to dig a little deeper in the Standard 509 Reports for the schools on your list. You can select a school and generate the report, which will summarize the most relevant data on the school: application stats, GPA percentiles, LSAT percentiles, costs, percentages of students receiving financial support, amount of support, clinical and other offerings, diversity/ethnic composition of chosen year, BAR passage rates. Run several reports and do side by side comparisons of the schools you are considering in order to make the best informed choice.
