Law School Admission Test (LSAT)
The LSAT is a standardized test used by law schools to compare the academic performance/readiness of applicants across the country to one another. The LSAT tests your abilities to read and comprehend complex texts with accuracy and insight; organize and manage information and draw reasonable inferences from it; think critically; and analyze and evaluate the reasoning and arguments of others. This exam is difficult and should be taken seriously with significant preparation including study and practice exams.
The LSAT is a half-day, standardized test administered four times each year at designated testing centers, typically on a Saturday, except in June, when it is generally administered on a Monday. Students may take the LSAT no more than three times in any two-year period. Many law schools require that the LSAT be taken by December for admission the following fall. However, taking the test earlier—in June or September—is often advised.
