For good reason, lawyer-journalist Kathryn Rubino at Abovethelaw.com has been covering the ongoing story of which schools of law are allowing applicants to present scores from the GRE instead of the traditional LSAT.
That represents a shift to a test which doesn't require months of preparation and can be used to apply to not only law schools but other advanced degree programs. In itself that could solve the major problems law schools are facing. They range from not attracting enough applicants to only attracting those who may not be qualified to pass the bar.
With the GRE, the best and brightest college seniors could hedge their bets.
They can invest in only taking the GRE and then they can still leverage it to apply to a variety of Nexts in terms of degrees. Along the way in that decision-making process they may figure: Why not do law school! After all, that degree is very versatile.
Allowing the GRE option began with the University of Arizona law school. When Harvard Law followed, then the world took notice. And the niche industry associated with the LSAT should have become very scared.
The 8th law school to accept the GRE is St. John's School of Law.
