• Yes. We require all applicants to take either the GRE or the LSAT.

  • Yes. The Admissions Committee has no preference between the LSAT or the GRE, and will accept either test score. We consider all applications holistically and will evaluate applications similarly regardless of test type.

  • No. If you have already taken the LSAT, your LSAT score(s) will be sent to Brooklyn Law School when you submit your application through the LSAC website. You have the option to submit a GRE score through ETS, which we will evaluate in addition to any LSAT score(s) we will automatically receive.

  • No. You should prepare for and take the test that you feel is most indicative of your academic ability. The Admissions Committee does not require both exams and does not have a preference for either test.

  • All LSAT scores must be submitted regardless of whether a GRE score was submitted or not. Applicants who are asking the Admissions Committee to consider a GRE score for admission must submit all GRE scores from the past five years. Candidates who have taken the GRE, but are not asking the Admissions Committee to consider their GRE score, but rather are relying on their LSAT score, need not submit any GRE scores, but are welcome to. If candidates submit a GRE score, BLS requires any and all GRE test results from the past 5 years. Failure to report a GRE score could lead to an offer of admission being rescinded. The Admissions Committee will evaluate only your highest scores for both the LSAT and GRE.

  • If you would like to submit your GRE scores as part of your application to Brooklyn Law School, either instead of or in addition to all LSAT scores, you must indicate Brooklyn Law School as a recipient of your test scores and notify the Admissions Office by submitting an addendum to your application stating that you would like your GRE score to be considered during review of your file. Our GRE code is 2690. Only official score reports from the Educational Testing Service will be accepted.

  • If you are registered to take a future LSAT or GRE it is in your best interest to submit your application as soon as possible so that it will be on file here, ready for review, when your score report arrives. If you already have a reportable score and wish to postpone any decision until a new score is received, you should indicate this at the appropriate admission application question, or subsequently by e-mail, or otherwise in writing.

  • We will accept LSAT and/or GRE scores from tests administered within 5 years of the applicant's submitted application.

  • Yes. All applicants are required to submit a CAS report, with no exceptions.

  • As with the LSAT, the Admissions Committee does not set a minimum GRE score. As stated, we evaluate applications on a holistic basis, taking into consideration the results of admissions test(s), undergraduate coursework and record, community engagement and leadership, life experiences, and potential for academic achievement, to name only a few factors.

  • A single cancelled test has no impact on our evaluation of a candidate. That said, multiple cancellations will raise some concerns in the minds of the Admissions Committee. We encourage you to explain the circumstances surrounding any cancellation(s) in a brief supplementary statement.

  • Yes. We are required to report your highest LSAT score to the ABA.
