Pretty TTT move. It's very rare, but I guess you proved that it happens.

I never got this question from a law firm during OCI. Was a bit afraid I would get asked it b/c I'm a transfer, so my LSAT is well below my classmates.

Consulting firms like McKinsey who hire JDs do ask for standardized test scores on their online application.

Ditto. It was great getting into law school based on a largely arbitrary test, but it would be even better to get some extra mileage out of it.

Military asks for your LSAT, but so far no firms have (they might, though).

No, but one lady did ask my penis size. I've never seen a paler face in my life.

There is no need for a firm to ask for my LSAT score as I proudly display it on my resume in size 96 font using the watermark feature.

Yes, and precisely the same number of people can see who posted it.

Lolz, and no. I think they assume that if you're at my school (T20-30), then your LSAT score isn't anything they want to know.

Was asked for my LSAT score at Orrick NY during 1L OCI by a mid to senior associate who was also an alumnus of Chicago. Told him. His response: Well that's nothing special. (It's the higher quartile for my school. Ass. Also, didn't get the job.)

McKinsey wanted everything - LSAT, SAT, et cetra.

Not in law school yet, but both Bain and Mckinsey consulting wanted my SAT/ACT scores.
