Clearinghouse for ABA decision?

Clearinghouse for ABA decision?
« on: October 23, 2006, 08:58:05 PM »
Is there a thread or a website that is a clearinghouse for where law schools stand on the ABA's recent decision to only require the top LSAT score and how it might impact admissions?

Thanks.

There is one around here, but there is debate over whether it's accurate.  Your best bet is to look at the websites of the individual schools you applied to.  Most will have information on how they evaluate multiple LSAT scores.  Odds are though the answer you'll find is that schools will "consider all scores", which is vague and probably not helpful.  Depending on the significance of the improvement (significant generally meaning 6 point increase or more), then they may weigh the higher score more heavily.  If the improvement is marginal (about 1-4 points), then they will probably consider the average.
