LSAT scores on applications - ???

Postby wxyz » Fri Aug 31, 2012 2:48 pm

I'm sorry if this has been asked before but I'm filling out the administrative sections of a few applications, and I have a question about the "Standardized Tests" section that appears on each one. I have 2 LSAT scores (165 and 175). Am I REQUIRED to add both of those to "Standardized Tests" section, or can I (/should I?) just submit my 175? All of these schools will receive both scores anyway, right? Will I come across as dishonest if I only put my 175? The Stanford application seems to require me to submit both scores, but I can't find anything in Duke's instructions, for example, that give me clear guidance here.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Maybe you arent required on some, but IMO, you should put both scores. Its better to be consistent with the score report LSAC gives them.

I can't see how it would benefit you to only put the 175. They're not going to be tricked into thinking you didn't get the 165, so you might as well just list it and own it.

I have a cancel, but there doesn't seem to be a way to note that on the FlexApp. At this point, I just have it blank and hopefully schools will understand. Ideas/thoughts?
