COVID-19 LSAT News

From LSAC

“In light of the COVID-19 public health emergency, we are offering an online, remotely proctored version of the LSAT — called the LSAT-Flex — for test takers who were registered for the in-person April, June, and July 2020 tests that have been canceled. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic closely and will make other LSAT-Flex test dates available this summer if the situation warrants. We plan to resume the in-person LSAT once conditions allow, in strict accordance with public health authorities and using all necessary health and safety measures. In the meantime, the remotely proctored LSAT-Flex will provide candidates the opportunity to earn an LSAT score even though in-person testing is not possible due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We recently delivered the first LSAT-Flex administration in the U.S. and Canada, which was generally quite successful. Nearly 10,000 candidates took the LSAT-Flex between May 18 and 22. While some test takers experienced technical difficulties with their computers, internet connection, or the proctoring process, 99% of test takers who started the test successfully completed it. We are using the experience of delivering the May exam to make future LSAT-Flex administrations even better.”

LSAT Basics

Overview

The LSAT—Law School Admission Test—is an exam required for admission to most law schools. Administered by the Law School Admission Council (LSAC), it includes multiple-choice sections and an essay portion.

The LSAT measures a student’s ability to draw inferences, evaluate arguments, and read passages critically, all under time pressure—not exactly a walk in the park! Because these are core skills in the field of law, admissions officers use LSAT scores to assess the likelihood that students will be able to handle the rigors of their programs. If you’re freaking out, remember that our prep is designed to help you hone those skills over time. With the right combination of practice and guidance, you will put your best foot forward.

While the LSAT is the centerpiece of the application to most law schools, admissions officers take more than just your score into account. Scores are evaluated in the context of your undergraduate GPA, Credential Assembly Service (CAS) application, letters of recommendation, and personal statement. At many law schools, though, your LSAT score is weighted more heavily than your undergraduate GPA, making in the most important aspect of your application. Overall, the higher your LSAT score, the higher your chances of admission.

GRE vs. LSAT

Over the last few years, many law schools have opted to accept the GRE in lieu of the LSAT. Before diving headfirst into the LSAT, ask yourself if it’s the right test.


However, it is most likely true that your chosen institution prizes a high LSAT score more than they do a high GRE score. If you’re undecided, contact us. We live to help our students make informed, individualized decisions.

How long is the LSAT?

The LSAT takes about three and a half hours to complete. Disregarding the experimental section, it consists of 99-102 multiple-choice questions and is designed to be difficult to finish within the allotted time. Simply put, you need to invest your time wisely.
