Does your Undergrad School know the law schools you got into

Postby Not-A-Teabagger » Sat May 15, 2010 5:32 pm

Does you Undergrad Institution know which law schools you were accepted into? Or just which law school you decide to attend? Or neither? I did not authorize my prelaw advisor to view my academic details via lsac, and so I am just wondering how much my undergrad institution knows?

I honestly have no idea. If I had to guess I would say that the law schools reveal the schools of those who matriculate and that is how schools would know. But, as I said, I have no actual information.

If you allowed your advisor then that person knows, and that is generally how the school keeps track of it. Also, most schools have some form of an "Exit Interview" through career services that solicits this information.

I think the answer is probably yes, otherwise I have no idea how schools can compile stuff like this (http://www.yale.edu/career/students/gra ... wstats.pdf).

LSAC probably gives each undergrad school a report that compiles the stats of all applicants from that school who applied to law schools. They probably don't report data about individual applicants to the schools.

I can't speak for "colleges", but I can speak for one ivy league school that had a LSN system for all its applicants.
