What if you DO cheat on the lsat?

Postby mattviphky » Thu Dec 08, 2011 1:22 am

Do misconducts take away from the test scores? Like if someone got a misconduct for filling in answers on another section or something and time was called, would the score be affected, or would it just be noted in applications as a misconduct? If that's the case, maybe some truly amoral law school would encourage a batch of test takers to cheat and not even care about misconducts. So what if these applicants have misconduct reports, they all have 180s and that's all USNWR rankings care about!

(i know this method of cheating wouldn't give someone an easy 180 by any means, but it certainly gives them an edge)

Btw, i'm just trying to get some opinions on if a school could pull this off, i really have no intent to ever, ever try and do this.

yeah, useless hypothetical. just thought someone might actually know if this sort of thing could possibly happen. Law school admissions are so hell bent with rankings that they already fudge numbers. When will they let the students fudge them and save the adcomm the liability?
