Using your MPRE score on your resume...

Postby Hikonyan » Wed Sep 07, 2011 5:54 pm

I just got my MPRE score back, and I got a 125!

From what I understand... that is well above average.

Would that be weird if I put that score on my resume? Or will employers not care at all whatsoever

I got a 137 and I'm actually ashamed because that meant I tried too hard.

I felt the same way in the spring... For the OP, please don't do this. Or, do it, and make sure to come back and post to let us know what people say when they interview you...

This is flame, right? Who would put this on their resume?

I'd immediately check the "No" box next to "Would you extend this person an offer?" on my firm's interview form.

Yeah. LSAT too, if it was 160+. Employers are looking for any indication of how good you'll be on the job; unless you're absolutely running out of space because of all your work experience, might as well throw some standardized scores up there.

Op, why don't you measure your dick and weigh your balls, find out the national average for each and if your cock and balls out-pace those of the average American male, include that information as well. I'd also throw in the number of V-Cards you've snagged and the number of 10's you've pounded out in the last 24 months. Its all equally relevent to your MPRE score in determining whether you are a "good fit" for a potential firm.

I dont think that would be appropriate... If I was hiring and saw a "test score" on the resume, i would move right on to the next.
