How much does the LSAT really cost?

It costs $190 to take the LSAT and receive one free score report. As a matter of longstanding policy, scores may be canceled and struck from the record if the applicant notifies the LSAC (Law School Admission Council, which administers the test) within six calendar days of the test. Note that choosing this option means never seeing your score. However, as of summer 2020, the LSAC is allowing first-time test takers to pay $45 ahead of the test (or $75 between test sitting and score release) for the right to cancel their scores after score release. This is a big development that will protect test-takers who expected to perform well and were surprised by a score below their expectations. However, this policy only applies to first-time test takers.

In addition, subscription to the Credential Assembly Service (CAS) is required for application for most law schools. This subscription costs $195 and includes one free score report. Additional score reports cost $45. Waiver forms for the LSAT and CAS fees are available through LSAC and can be downloaded from the LSAC website .
