25% Of Law Schools Plan To Accept The GRE

GREFollowing up on my previous posts (links below):  Press Release, Law Schools’ Apprehension to Allow Applicants to Use GRE for Admissions Drops:

Kaplan Test Prep’s 2017 law school admissions officers survey shows more law schools warming up to the idea of allowing applicants to submit GRE scores instead of LSAT scores. According to the responses of 128 law schools across the United States, 25 percent say it’s an admissions policy they plan to implement, up from just 14 percent in Kaplan’s 2016 survey; 45 percent say they have no plans to do so, a drop from 56 percent who ruled it out in last year’s survey; and 30 percent are not sure, the same as in 2016.

LSAT tests ability to play odd games and verbal ability. GRE tests ability to play another type of odd games and verbal ability. How about dropping the games and just text verbal ability?
