How Many Times Should I Take the LSAT?
Taking the LSAT is a big decision, but so is deciding when to take the test and how many times you should take the test. In this 2-minute tip video, I discuss when the LSAT is offered, how to choose a date, and how many times you should be planning to take the test.
The LSAT is now being offered 6 times during this admission cycle, and you are allowed to take the test as many times as necessary to obtain the score you believe is the best representation of your abilities. But, keep in mind that law schools operate on rolling admissions: there is an advantage to applying earlier in the cycle. If you’re applying to law school this fall, now is the time to plan out when you’re taking the LSAT, and to come up with a back up plan if that first plan doesn’t work out.
