How old can my LSAT score be?

Postby Lawten » Wed Feb 10, 2010 5:14 pm

Hey guys,

I am hoping join the peace corps when I finish undergrad, and then apply to law school when I return. But I was also planning on taking the LSAT before I left, meaning that by the time I actually applied, my score would be 2-4 years old (depending on how long I stay in the PC). I was wondering if anyone knew whether law schools care if your score is a few years old? Thanks!

LSAT scores are reportable for 5 years, so most law schools go by that. Some law schools have their own cutoffs like 3 years, while others are willing to accept older scores if you can get LSAC to dig into their archives and report them (by special request).
