Important news for students planning to apply to law school:
Starting this fall, Georgetown Law will accept either the GRE or the LSAT (or both) for students applying to enter in the fall of 2018.
In the fall of 2018, Northwestern University’s Pritzker School of Law will begin accepting the GRE as an alternative to the LSAT for students applying to enter in the fall of 2019.
Georgetown and Northwestern join Harvard Law School and University of Arizona’s James E. Rogers College of Law in accepting the GRE in addition to the LSAT.
While the GRE is still not accepted at enough law schools to be considered a true alternative to the LSAT, prospective law school applicants should consult extensively with their tutors and program consultants to determine which test will grant them the best opportunity to earn admission to their ideal law school.
