Very old LSAT score

Postby tehwetbandit » Sun Jun 03, 2012 7:10 pm

I will be applying in the fall. I have a 177 but the score is from Sept 2007. Does anyone know how much if at all this penalizes my chances? I took it in my senior year of undergrad, then took a couple years off before finishing my last semester, then worked for a few years. I've never applied to law schools before. Thanks!

If it is still valid, it should be ok. I think it is valid for 5 years, but I don't think I know how to count them.

Your Score Report and Test Disclosure
The score report that is mailed or e-mailed to you will show your current test results, along with the results of all tests—up to 12—for which you registered since June 1, 2007, including absences and cancellations. An average score is also calculated and reported when you have more than one reportable score. Scores earned prior to June 2007 are not considered current for law school reporting and are not available for printing from an online account. However, you may contact LSAC to request older score reports

The Sept 07 has got to be the easiest lsat ever released. I fucking loved that thing. Just sharing because you mentioned it, not trying to belittle your achievement lol. Hope it counts for you!

While valid for five years, some schools will ask you to retake the LSAT for a more recent score. You might want to consider registering for the October exam just to make sure that you have your bases covered.
