Just tell them it was a 176 and you have a 9" cock. It's not like they're going to verify either.

I thought that was why the associates hit on the summers.

Ouch. If this is a tactic to ding people... that really sucks. Sorry bro. Hope you have a good LSAT score, or they do not actually care. Otherwise, whatever. Life goes on and in the long run it would probably be better to work elsewhere.

There were judges that asked for LSAT on clerkship apps, too.

I really like the firm. I think its SOP to be honest and I have a good score so its not a big deal. More surprised than anything.

King & Spalding has an intake form where they ask for UGPA and HIGH SCHOOL GPA. Absurd.

It's to weed out the high LSAT scorers who did well in law school without working hard.

I interviewed with a firm a couple of years ago that asked for LSAT. I don't think they used it at all to ding people. They just keep some records and they ask everyone. They probably have the LSAT scores of the partners.

Army Jag requires you to submit your LSAT score for summer internships. Not sure about full-time employment (DAP) afterwards, but I'd assume they'd still ask.

You are telling me that my awesome LSAT score will hurt me with those judges since I am barely top 1/3 at my school??

Just a number I think. I doubt that half the partners would even know how the modern LSAT is scored.

I guess I can see it for hiring summers . . . kinda, but after you already have an entire summer of work product to judge?

Ropes asked me for a UG transcript too. Probably the reason I didn't get that job. Maybe I should have included a letter of recommendation from my 5th grade social studies teacher.
