Going to apply for a law school 3+ years later. Will LSAT-flex be disadvantaged?

Post by Letsgotolawschool » Sun Feb 21, 2021 4:14 pm

I'm planning to go to a law school after getting my graduate degree, which will be three to four years from now (but definitely less than five years). I'm thinking of signing up for June LSAT-flex since it's much shorter than the original one (also, I want to get this done before I enter a dissertation phase). But by the time I apply for a law school, I'm suspecting most people would have a regular LSAT score. Since it's known that there's score inflation with LSAT-flex, would an LSAT-flex score be looked down upon?

I mean, it would depend on whether USNews sorts an average LSAT-flex separately from an average LSAT score since that's one of the biggest motivators for them... But I'm new to the world of law school admission and wonder if anyone has more informed conjecture.

Thanks!
