Beginning November 1, Pepperdine School of Law applicants may submit either the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) or the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT), or both.
Dean Paul Caron said, “Pepperdine Law hopes the acceptance of both the GRE and the LSAT will expand our pool of applicants and result in a more diverse group of prospective students.”
The GRE is offered on-demand, in multiple locations, providing greater flexibility for applicants. Over thirty American Bar Association accredited law schools now accept the GRE as well as the LSAT, including Harvard, Chicago, Columbia, NYU, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Northwestern, Georgetown, Texas, UCLA, and USC.
“Pepperdine Law is pleased to join the growing number of law schools that give applicants flexibility in deciding which standardized test to take,” Assistant Dean for Admissions, Student Information and Financial Services Shannon Phillips said. “We look forward to receiving more applications from students considering other graduate programs, including those with interests in science, technology, economics, and mathematics.”
