Does LSAC report LSAT scores to schools of your choosing?
« on: August 21, 2007, 12:48:11 PM »
A few friends of mine took the LSAT about 4 years ago, and they told me that their LSAT scores were automatically sent to up to schools of their choosing (prior to their applying to these schools).

They said when they signed up for the LSAT there was a section for this option.

I signed up for the LSAT last week, but I can't find anything related to that.

Anybody know what they're talking about?  I'm anticipating a good score and I really need to get the schools prepped for me (my GPA from my youth is awful!)

Someone please advise.....

You're friends are either mixing up the LSAT and the SAT, or things have changed in the last few years. I think it's the former, but maybe it's the latter. In either case, they're wrong.

It's gotta be that things have changed.  They took their SAT's 20 years ago.

And one of them got a full scholarship to Seton Hall based on the LSAT scores they received PRIOR to his applying.

But like I said...that was 4 years ago.  I guess it has changed....

Anyway, thanks.

LSAC makes your score available to ALL schools before you apply so long as you have CRS enabled in your online account.

This is how schools determine who receives fee waivers, etc.

This is very true, although I've always assumed they make batches of students available rather than specific student data. I.e., a school says 'give me all the students with LSAT scores above 170' and LSAC gives them a list, but within that list, the school doesn't know the scores of individual students. I have absolutely no support for that assumption, though :)

That could be what they were talking about.  Thanks!

Perhaps, although you should note that you don't get to choose schools with CRS.
