What is the LSAT?
The LSAT is a half-day standardized test required for admission to all American Bar Association (ABA)-approved law schools, most Canadian law schools, and many non-ABA-approved law schools. The test is administered by the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC). The LSAT provides a standard measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills that law schools can use as one of several factors in assessing applicants. The test is administered 4 times a year at hundreds of locations around the world. Many law schools require that the LSAT be taken by December for admission the following fall.
The test consists of five 35-minute sections of multiple-choice questions. A 35-minute writing sample is administered at the end of the test. (Taken from the LSAC website: www.lsac.org)
Who should take the LSAT?
The LSAT is required by all American Bar Association (ABA)-approved law schools, most Canadian schools. Many other law schools also require or accept the LSAT.
What is tested on the LSAT?
- Reading Comprehension Questions – Measure your ability to read and understand complex materials.
- Analytical Reasoning Questions – Measure your ability to structure relationships and draw logical conclusions about relationships.
- Logical Reasoning- Assess your ability to analyze and evaluate arguments after reading a short passage.
- Writing Sample (not scored)
How is the LSAT scored?
- Scores range from 120 to 180
- Your score on the LSAT is based on the number of questions you answer correctly within the 4 scored sections of the exam. You are not penalized for incorrect answers.
- LSAC takes your raw score and translates it to a score within the standard scale range to account for variance in difficulty on test forms.
- Four of the five sections contribute to the test taker's score. LSAC uses the other section to test new questions and / or question formats. You will not know which section is not being scored.
- The writing sample is not scored by LSAC, but is forwarded to the law schools to which you are applying.
Can I retake the LSAT?
You can take the LSAT up to 3 times in a 2 year period. However, all of your scores will be reported to the schools to which you request reporting. In the event that you take the test multiple times, LSAT advises that schools take the average of your test scores as an indicator of your true ability. Many schools now only consider the higher score, but it is important to know the policy of the schools to which you apply and perform as well as possible on the exam when you take it.
