Should LSAT Scores Be Put on Resumes?

A discussion. I'm inclined against; by the time you're looking for jobs, you have at least a few grades that provide some insight into a student's ability to grasp legal concepts. Moreover, as LSAT score is more determinative of admissions to law school than any other factor, one's school is essentially a proxy for LSAT anyway.

As imperfect as grades are, they are certainly more useful and illustrative than the LSAT, which does not test ability in an explicitly legal context.
