Is your LSAT score important when you look for 1L summer job?

I didn't score impressively. Would they usually still ask your LSAT score when interviewing you to judge you? Especially big firms--they are certainly picky.

No.  But your undergrad is important.

Both incorrect. Your first semester (and second semester, if they don't interview you until after the first year is over for the summer position) are the single most important aspect. Everything else is just additional factors.

No employer has asked to see my LSAT score.

as a 2L, i've looked at hundreds, if not thousands of job ads. i have only seen 1 where they ask for your LSAT score. They also asked for your SAT score. it was some M&A specialty firm - yeah, i didn't apply there.
check the footnotes ya'll

NALP guidelines strongly discourage firms from requesting your LSAT scores.  Your undergrad GPA is fair game.

I had a potential employer asked me how I did on the LSAT, but it was more conversational than anything. (We were talking about where I applied and stuff. Also, he was looking over my resume and saw how high my GPA was so it was natural to ask about my LSAT [which, might I add, was not great].)

UG GPA and major field(s)+Law School Grades+Letters of Reference

No one cares about that LSAT score.

I don't even think they care much about your undergrad, I never got asked much about that (except at IP firms.)

I'd say more along the lines of Law school you go to+Law school grades.
