As much as you'd like to think it wouldn't, they will not view a a regular 175 the same as an extended-time 175. Luckily, for their USNWR numbers its the same, but if you take people on here who got a 170 and gave them extra time, they could pull a 175, and law schools know that. (Without talking about how fair or unfair that might be)

And, law schools care about what their alumni will do career wise - and people need extra time to get their score will likely not contribute as much as people who dont.

Anecdotal job placement data shows that schools sorta don't.

They care enough to give people "fellowships" to inflate employment stats, but they really haven't decreased tuition or class sizes, so no.
