Which T14 law schools accept the best LSAT score?

Postby deblaw » Tue Mar 29, 2011 12:49 am

So I heard that the majority of law schools would average up the total LSAT scores.
Which schools accept the best LSAT score w/o averaging them up?

Wow, looking at that list a bunch of the top 20-30 schools are in the "Average" and "Holistic" bracket. A lot of people (including myself) assume that everyone is taking the highest score. Good to know since Georgetown is one of the schools I'm aiming for. I guess I'd better not take the test if I'm not scoring consistently in my range :D

I'd take that with the same grain of salt as you should with employment numbers. They are reporting only your highest score to USNWR.

ETA: How old is that TLS article?

Most of them do. The ones that don't that come to mind are Harvard/NYU. It might matter for Yale also...
