The LSAT

The LSAT is the standardized test you will need to take in order to apply for law school. There are official practice tests you can take as well preparation courses through test prep companies, see below for a list of some of the companies. Be sure to ask these companies if they have a student discount! The LSAC has a Fee Waiver Program, which covers the cost of at least one LSAT test and LSAC’s LawHubAdvantage LSAT test prep.

Many law schools also accept the GRE in place of the LSAT. Admissions committees do not prefer one test over the other so take the test that you will do best on. The GRE is an especially good option for you if you’re applying to other graduate programs that require the GRE. Take free practice exams online for each test to help you decide which exam is right for you.

Taking the test in June will give you enough time to retake the LSAT, if you choose to, and will allow you to submit an earlier application. You can wait until the November test and still apply by the end of the year. Remember, law schools use rolling admissions so it’s best to submit your application in the fall by the end of December.

It’s ok if you take the test more than once, however, it’s ideal to only take the LSAT once. So, don’t take the test until you’re ready.
