LSATApplicants are not required to take the LSAT; however, if a candidate has taken or will be taking the LSAT, the score will be considered.
While the LSAT is not required, the LSAT result provides the Admissions Committee with an additional and useful piece of information regarding the strength of your candidacy and suitability for law studies. The relative strength or weakness of an LSAT result is evaluated in light of the entire application.
Although the LSAT is not a mandatory element in an application for admission, every applicant who has taken or will be taking it must disclose their LSAT information and failure to do so is a material misrepresentation.
See the admissions website for further details.
