Wake Forest joins the growing number of law schools that will accept GRE scores in place of LSAT scores. From the official announcement:
The decision to accept the GRE as an additional valid and reliable admission test in the JD admissions process follows Wake Forest School of Law’s role as one of the first three law schools — along with the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law and the University of Hawaii’s Richardson Law School — in the nation to have started a validation study of the GRE test in collaboration with Educational Testing Service (ETS). Wake Forest School of Law is the first law school in North Carolina to accept the GRE.
The Wake Forest Law study, completed recently, revealed that GRE scores were predictive of first-year law school grades, which correlate to students’ overall success in law school.
Wake Forest Law joins eight other law schools in the order of their decisions to accept the GRE scores: the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law; Columbia Law School, Harvard Law School; Georgetown University Law Center; Northwestern University’s Pritzker School of Law; the University of Hawaii’s Richardson Law School; and Washington University at St. Louis. The University of California at Los Angeles School of Law allows graduate students already on campus to apply using the GRE.
