    Hello everyone!

    On Friday, April 13, an ABA committee recommended the removal of the requirement that member law schools use a standardized test in the admissions process. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that any law schools will go “test optional” as there is another proposal to force schools that admit students with no standardized test scores to actively prove those admits are well positioned to succeed in law school and later pass the bar.

    However, a good number of schools have been taking a “wait and see” approach with regards to accepting the GRE and, should this new recommendation get approved by the ABA’s Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar and the ABA’s House of Delegates, we expect a large number of law schools to begin accepting the GRE as well as other standardized tests like the GMAT.

    Hello everyone!

    Earlier today, the ABA Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar approved the ABA committee recommendation referred to in the previous post. The changes will now go to the ABA’s House of Delegates for a final approval. This could happen as soon as August. If this comes to fruition, we expect every law school to accept the GRE (and potentially other tests as well!) within the following 6 months.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Hello everyone!

    The ABA will not be voting on removing the LSAT requirement anytime soon. Law.com reports a member of the ABA Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar indicated the proposed LSAT change “had run into pushback from delegates and that the council would take time to reconsider the measure.”

    Best of luck with your applications!
