41 Law Schools Now Accept The GRE For Admissions (The Latest Are Seattle And Yale)

GRESeattle and Yale are the latest law school to accept the GRE (joining American, Arizona, Boston University, Brooklyn, Buffalo, BYU, Cardozo, Chicago, Chicago-Kent, Columbia, Cornell, Dayton, Florida International, Florida State, George Mason, Georgetown, Harvard, Hawaii, John Marshall (Chicago), Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Northwestern, Notre Dame, NYU, Pace, Pennsylvania, Pepperdine, South Carolina, St. John's, Suffolk, Texas, Texas A&M, UC-Irvine, UC-Davis, UCLA, USC, Virginia, Wake Forest, and Washington University).

Georgia and Penn State (University Park) allow students enrolled in a dual degree program at the university to submit the GRE. (George Washington has rescinded its use of the GRE because it has not done a school-specific validation study.)  A non-U.S. law school — Hamd Bin Khalifa University Law School (Qatar), in partnership with Northwestern — also accepts the GRE.

Law schools must be having a hard time filling seats. Unfortunately, the GRE is not the answer.

Do these law schools ORDER their legacy and athletic applicants to take the GRE?

(Don't wanna "pollute" those schools' LSAT average . . .)

Law schools are ever more desperate for revenue, I mean applicants, I see. Still, it's ultimately harmful to the LSAC, which has operated in the fashion of a for-profit monopoly for ages now, so it's a net positive in my book.

Excuse me if I fail to see why this matters to anyone who doesn't work for the LSAT.
