Sending CPA exam scores to Law Schools

Postby coolguy » Fri May 24, 2013 11:08 pm

Hi, does anyone know if law schools require CPA transcripts with test scores, and if these test scores have any effect on the chances of getting accepted?

Maybe you could mention your high scores in an 'accomplishments' area of your resume.

Lolskies... if you view that as an accomplishment, one might worry as to what else you have had to fill your resume with. If you've passed all four + ethics, just toss in a CPA line somewhere, but including your scores seems tacky to me - after all, if they were all that good, you'd have gotten the Elijah Watt Sells Award, which you could reasonably put on your resume

How do the law schools know that someone who says they've passed the CPA exams actually has?
