LAW SCHOOL ADMISSION TEST (LSAT) - HOW LAW SCHOOLS USE MULTIPLE SCORES
The Book of Law School Lists publication above can also help you find out what different schools do with your scores. Different schools use multiple scores in different ways when evaluating your application. Some examples of the differences are:
- Use only your highest score
- Place the greatest emphasis on your highest score
- Use your highest score but consider all scores
- Use your highest score if there are only two scores; otherwise, average the scores
- Average your LSAT scores
- Average your scores if your most recent is your highest score
- Average your scores unless an explanation of multiple takings is provided
- Consider all scores and average them
The Law School Lists publication can help you make quick comparisons, but you should always consult the law school website for the most current information as well.
