The University of Oregon School of Law has dropped the LSAT requirement for some OU students. Specifically, OU students with a GPA at or above 3.5 at graduation and an SAT or ACT score in the 85th percentile will now be able to apply to the law school without the need to sit for the LSAT.
We are always happy when we read stories about law schools breaking free from the grip of the LSAT test. However, we want to note that if you graduate with a GPA at or above 3.5 and you are a good standardized test taker, you likely have a very good chance of gaining admission to law schools that are ranked higher than OU’s. Of course if you really like being a student at Eugene — and there is certainly a lot to like about OU — you might be very content to become a ‘double duck’ and spend a total of 7 (yeah, OK, maybe more lol) years at the University of Oregon.
