Law Schools — Expand Your Applicant Pool

Expand and diversify your applicant pool by accepting scores from the test taken by hundreds of thousands of individuals worldwide each year.

A broad range of law schools, including several top-ranked institutions, are now accepting or are considering accepting GRE® General Test scores — with good reason. As a robust, generally valid predictor of success in law school, GRE® scores help law schools to be more accessible to prospective students considering multiple career paths, those undecided about their field of advanced study, as well as students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields and international students. The GRE General Test offers year-round testing in test centers located across the globe. With the GRE test, applicants can now take one test and submit their scores when applying to law, business or graduate programs — rather than taking a separate test for each — which saves them time and money.
