Not that I am aware of. I always considered the LSAT to be specific to only Law School admissions.

Although it may indicate a high likelihood of also scoring well on the GMAT or GRE, entrance exams used for other fields of study.

The LSAT is for law school. If you don't want to go to law school, your LSAT doesn't matter. Do you have a high LSAT score but don't want to go to law school?

The only other possibility would be TUTORING students who want to take the LSAT ... but usually you would need an extraordinarily high score, not just a "high" LSAT score (whatever that means).

OP, would be nice if you gave more details ...

The only value of an LSAT score is to help law schools decide which applicants to accept. The combination of LSAT and undergraduate GPA is the best predictor of first year law school grades. Nothing else.


If you don't want to be a lawyer, don't go to law school, but the fact of having a high LSAT score won't get you anything else, except the opportunity to show off your ability to do logic games to your friends.


Oh, one other thing. If you want to join Mensa an LSAT percentile score about 95 will get you in.

There are a small number of graduate programs that will allow you to substitute the LSAT for the GRE. I can't remember which ones, but the selection would be rather limiting.

It seems if any places that accept LSAT scores outside of law schools are graduate programs for Masters of Public Policy (MPP), Master of Public Administration (MPA), Master of Public Health (MPH).

See: Can an LSAT score replace a GRE or GMAT score?

Conversely, there are just a few law schools now accepting GRE scores in lieu of LSAT scores.

A few MBA programs will accept the MBA instead of the GMAT for their MBA/JD combined programs. Some graduate programs in Public Policy (Georgetown is one) and/or Public Administration (UPenn is one I know of) will accept it as well. Johns Hopkins will also accept the LSAT from applicants for its graduate program in Public Health.

I'm sure there are other graduate programs out there that will take it as well.

Figure out what type of graduate study interests you, then identify a few programs, and ask what they'll accept. Worse comes to worse, you can always take a different test if you need to once you do that. Good luck!

Chuckle to yourself when you realize a Supreme Court justice or President has a lower score than you

Ok, thanks for the replies guys. I have another question. What are some career ideas for someone who loves the LSAT?
