I called LSAC and they said that you can't use the credential assembly service without them sending your LSAT score over to Northwestern. Does saying on the application that you took the GMAT and want them to consider the GMAT score mean that they won't look at the LSAT score? My LSAT score is very disappointing, which is why I'm really focusing on the GMAT now, I think I'll do a lot better, given I've got a PhD in chemistry.

That's my plan B....2 more years WE, do well on the GMAT. The fact that there's a math section in the first place means I'll do better. The only thing that worries me is the computer based format. Do they allow scratch paper?

I've heard 6 sheets scrap paper, and I've also heard that there's some sort of stylus/electronic notepad system for scratch paper.

That is way off.

The computer based format is very very different than the LSAT. If you are accustomed to jumping around from easy to hard problems you might have some adjusting to do. As far as scratch paper goes, you are give a laminated notebook with dry erase pens. You have something like 5 or 6 pages front and back, and can ask for an additional pad if you fill up the first one.

Does NU accept the GMAT for the regular JD as well? Or just the AJD?

Thanks.
