Fall 2001 Class Diverse, Well-Qualified
The 209 members of the Levin College of Law Fall 2001 entering class (above, with college deans)
officially embarked upon their legal careers Aug. 16, when they arrived for "Introduction to Law School
and the Profession." The class is comprised of 110 men and 99 women, and represents 71 American
undergraduate colleges and six foreign institutions. Minorities make up 26.3 percent of the class, closely
paralleling the average for the previous four years a tribute to intense efforts by the law school's
Admissions Department and administration. The class is as well-qualified as it is diverse, with a median
GPA of 3.53 and median LSAT score of 157. Photo byEditorialAssistantSanjeev Sirpal.
