LSAT and GRE — overkill?

Post by Dipsychus » Thu Sep 12, 2019 2:09 am

I am able to take both (LSAT a definite) this cycle. But being able does not necessarily mean it’s a good idea. What are thoughts on this? — Will admissions offices roll their eyes and say, “Great, just what we need, another factor to consider.” Or just shrug. Or think it over zealous. Or look for parity/equivalence in the scores...

Probably overthinking this but curious to know what others think.

FWIW, this is from HLS, last summer:

There's no benefit; they're going to prioritize the LSAT score (and regardless of what their site says, I think they'll ignore the GRE).
