The Texas Tech app asked for my SAT score to "verify" LSAT scores.  I've heard of a couple other schools doing this.  I guess it's a way to make sure scores aren't flukes or something.


Wait for it....

I wonder if there is a large correlation between the SATs and the LSats. What I am inferring from the Texas Tech admissions committee is that they do not think someone with a low SATs could be capable of scoring high on the Lsats.

Texas Tech might do it, but no decent school does.

I don't know what TTU app was filled out because the one I sent it didn't say a word about highschool or SAT / ACT, HAHA!

Another sweet morsel of misinformation!

I had only a slightly above average SAT score, one that "translates" to a score in the low 150s, or so I've heard.  I didn't study at all for either test. 

Hopefully they don't ask me for my SAT score :)

No Idea why they care about these scores. Stupid if you ask me.

BC did ask for SAT/ACT scores on last cycle's application, fyi.
