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....

Oh, sweetheart, you don't need law school. Law school is for people who are boring and ugly and serious. And you, button, are none of those things.

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.
