UM Law School Expands Admissions Accessibility with GRE Acceptance

September 04, 2019

Alexander Blewett III School of Law at the University of Montana MISSOULA – The Alexander Blewett III School of Law will join 44 other American law schools in accepting the GRE in addition to the LSAT as an entrance exam for its 2019-20 application cycle.

The GRE offers an advantage in that it is offered year-round, while the LSAT is only available nine times a year. Accepting the GRE also benefits students who are considering pursuing one of the School of Law’s joint-degree offerings, eliminating the need to take two separate entrance exams. The GRE also is a less expensive option.

“We hope accepting the GRE will expand accessibility and opportunity for our prospective students,” said Sarah Pepe, director of admissions for the School of Law.

For more than 100 years, UM’s School of Law has provided excellent training for lawyers to practice throughout the region. Last October, the school ranked 11th in the nation for Best Value Law Schools. Learn more on the UM School of Law website.

The School of Law accepts about 80 new students each year. For more information about law school admissions, call 406-243-2396 or visit
