Law Admissions

Admissions Question: October 4

October 04, 2015

Q: Will L&C be following the recent recommendation from the ABA (American Bar Association) that when an applicant has more than one LSAT score, it is the highest score, rather than the average, which should be given the most consideration?

A: Yes, Lewis & Clark will give the most consideration to the higher LSAT score when reviewing applications.  That said, the admissions committee will still see the other exam scores and may consider those as additional information to a much smaller extent should they choose.  If an applicant has a significant difference in LSAT scores, or has more than 3 scores on record, I recommend that they submit an addendum with their application to explain the difference in scores or the reasons for taking it multiple times.
