Penn State Law – Dickinson is now accepting the GRE. Just like its sister school, the GRE will only be accepted when there is no LSAT on file.
Bekah Saidman-Krauss, assistant dean for admissions and financial aid at Dickinson Law explained, “Applicants should, of course, prepare seriously for whichever entrance exam they choose to take. They should also keep in mind that an LSAT or GRE score is merely one of many factors considered as part of Dickinson Law’s holistic application review.”
Unless the ABA rules against the ABA, we see all law schools eventually accepting either test within the next few years. There are currently over 30 law schools accepting the GRE and it’s nearly feasible for applicants to ignore the LSAT and find an adequate number of “good fit” law schools to target.
