HLS has changed LSAT policy

Postby das_Gesetz » Fri Sep 22, 2017 6:19 pm

They went from this:
"The LSAT need be taken only once. If you take the test more than once, all scores will be received but we will use the highest score in our evaluation"

to this:
"You only need to take the LSAT or GRE once; however if you take multiple tests, the admissions committee will consider all LSAT and/or GRE scores presented as part of your application."

Should applicants with two or more scores/cancellations be worried?

I wouldn't be too worried. But if I was worried, it would be because of the GRE and the fact that LSAT are up 20% this year, not because HLS is going to "consider all LSAT scores". HLS just bumped its median to 173, and I'm guessing they would like to keep it there.

I'd wait for a Spivey weigh-in but this is mildly annoying as someone likely to take the LSAT a fourth time in December. I hate the vague wording.

I suspect the language change just means that if you take the LSAT and GRE they'll look at both. Pretty obviously so.

i think so too.

if someone has taken both, should they report both tests? is there some agreement about the GRE score above which one should also report GRE along with lsat?
