Questions related to LSAT
Ive got admission into nmims for BBA LLB based on my lsat score..do I yet have to appear for their nmims law admission test. NLAT?
First of all, congratulations on getting selected in NMIMS. Now, coming to your question, no you do not need to appear for their examination if you got selected by your LSAT scores. It's their private examination for students who want to apply on for that specific college. Hope this was helpful.
My lsat merit list number is 705 is there any chance i will get in nmims?
I am afraid that with a score like yours, you would not be able to get a seat in Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies. Don't be disappointed. If your question remains unanswered or you have any more queries then feel free to ask.
Hope this helps!
