A few days ago, the Internet algorithms that know all too much about me directed me to this Vice article about taking the LSAT with no prep. I read it quickly and chuckled at the test takers who had trouble following the somewhat onerous but not terribly complicated test day instructions. I was also amused but not surprised to learn that LSAC employs “secret shopper” test takers to make sure that the proctors enforce regulations. But ultimately I found it a relatively flimsy premise for an article and moved on with my oh-so-exciting weekend.
The LSAT may be losing its primacy in law school admissions. Harvard, Georgetown, and Northwestern, each among the famed Top-14 law schools, have all announced that they would be accepting GRE scores as well as LSAT scores. What does this mean going forward?
