The Philly Voice reported on the law school’s announcement about the change in the application process. The school said the change is to build on strengths of “cross disciplinary curriculum and degree offerings.” The Ivy League School offers a number of joint degree programs, including with Wharton business school and Penn Engineering.

The GRE is generally taken by students applying to graduate school in subjects like business, engineering, the sciences, and more. The GMAT is taking by those pursuing an MBA. A big difference between the LSAT and GRE is that the LSAT focuses on reasoning skills whereas the GRE has a mixture of reasoning skills and subject knowledge questions. The LSAT is taken with a pen and paper and offered on only a few specific dates during the year. The GRE and GMAT are taken on a computer and offered more often throughout the year making it to be a preferred test by most.

There are now over 15 law schools that have announced they are accepting the GRE instead of the LSAT in their applications.
