The LSAT and GRE

Entrance exams are an essential part of a law school application. All law schools accept Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) scores. Most schools accept the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) scores as well. The LSAT and GRE are offered as remote exams with virtual proctors.

Schools' ABA-required disclosures on their websites reflect accepted applicants' scores, which can help you determine what a competitive score would be for you.


Remember to check directly with your law schools to verify their application requirements!
