How Important is the LSAT? 11 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 5  
I understand everyone trying to get into law school has to take it, but, how important really is it? I mean, I have great grades and really good letter of reccommendations and so forth, isn't this test just a formality? As long as I have the grades, do I really need to worry?

The LSAT is actually very important. The LSAT is used as an objective testing device to place all students on the same playing field. The truth is that law school applicants go to various universities, take up different majors, and bring different skill-sets and experiences. The LSAT is a way for the admissions department to judge the applicants on a common scale.

FYI: i am not aware of any law school that will admit a student without an LSAT score. In addition, in order to gain admission to the better schools, your LSAT and GPA must be stellar.

There is plenty of competition out there so dont take the LSAT lightly.

Then, once you get into law school the focus become grades !

Good luck.

Do not take the LSAT lightly. For the most part all applicants are considered to be on the same level. And, the way I understand it, the firs thing that law school admissions people look at is the LSAT and then move on to your grades and then move on to whatever else has been included in you application package. So, do not take the LSAT lightly, good grades or not...

"

Are there any schools that accept applications based on LSAT score only?

My wife works for the American Bar Association (ABA) and she said that all ABA accredited law schools require an undergrad degree and LSAT score.

My wife told me that there are non-ABA accredited schools that may just take the LSAT score, but graduates from those schools can not sit for the bar exam. If you are gonna suffer through 3 years of law school you might as well get the opportunity to become licensed even if yoiu never intend on practicing.

There are a lot of non-ABA accredited law schools in Cali and some online law school are also non-accredited.

I appreciate all the responses and I will change the way I look at the LSAT. Thanks for saving from what could have been a big mistake on my part.
