Big LSAT Changes Ahead!

Wow. It’s been a busy month at LSAC. I went on vacation to celebrate my 15th wedding anniversary and then all hell broke loose. But it’s good news for applicants all around. First, there is now no longer a restriction regarding the number of times you can take the LSAT. Take it as many times as you wish! Second, in 2018-2019 there will be 6 opportunities to take the LSAT! That’s right- 6 instead of 4!

Here are the dates:

  • June 11, 2018
  • September 8, 2018
  • November 17, 2018
  • January 26, 2019
  • March 30, 2019
  • June 3, 2019

More opportunities to take the LSAT is good for applicants, but there will be less time to prepare between each test, so people may need to plan ahead and register for the next exam just in case they decide to re-take the test after seeing their score.

Also, the first digital version of the LSAT was tested this month. It wasn’t scored, but other than some uncooperative tablet stylus functioning, people had good things to say. Hopefully the LSAT will be joining us in contemporary times soon.

Of course, all of this happened after I’d finished recording the audio version of the 3rd Edition of The Law School Admission Game, due to be released in a few weeks! Watch for free releases of segments of the book on podcast during the month of June, and the print and e-book versions to be released in Mid-July.

    I sat for the June LSAT. In the 3 wks. prior to the test, I scored 170, 166, 167, 169, and 174, in that order, on various prep tests, typically finishing each section 3 – 7 mins. ahead of time. I remember doing one LR section in 26:50 and missing only one.
    Here’s what I can tell you about the LSAT:

    This test is definitely harder than the prep tests.
    I finished one LR section before five minutes was called. Another section, I finished a little over two mins. ahead of time. The LG section was close, and I guessed on the last four questions, but had time to check two of them (this is typically my best section).
    One LR section I marked one question, and another I marked three, to come back to check later. I didn’t change my answers, except for one, but these were very tough questions.

    Unless you’re consistently finishing prep tests with four or more minutes to spare, you’re going to have issues with time on the test. Count on it.
