Among her most recent posts was this: St. John Law School changed its application process to give a choice between the traditional LSAT and the GRE.
That all started, seemingly light years ago, when the University of Arizona Law School shot to fame by breaking with what is and giving the nod to the GRE.
Soon enough Harvard Law School followed. It's likely that those employed in the LSAT niche industry will be in outplacement.
The story is old hat. We all know the reasons law school must make this move. Fortunately, ATL doesn't have a paywall so we have kept up-to-date on every development.
Today, The Wall Street Journal, which does have a paywall, finally is presenting details about this shift, what is no longer news. However, there still must be some interest in the no-longer-shocker. Already more than 100 have left comments.
The real story here, of course - and the whole standardized testing industry should be shaking in its boots - is that there is push-back against the entire status quo.
It is no longer unthinkable that undergraduate institutions will accept alternates to submitting the SAT during the application process. Bob Schaeffer, Public Education Director of Fair Test: National Center for Fair & Open Testing, informs me that already almost 1,000 accredited academic institutions have that arrangement. Here is further information.
Along the way, licensing procedures for professionals could also change. For instance, the state bar test for lawyers could be just one option for licensing. Another could be a two-year apprenticeship. A third could be three years engaging in pro se litigation.
