When to Take the LSAT?

Justin Scott

The LSAT is offered seven times per year. Meanwhile, law schools accept students on a rolling basis. The earlier you can submit complete applications, the better. So what’s the best time to take the test?

If you're applying for fall admission, aim to schedule your test dates between April and October of the prior year. Though you have seven opportunities throughout the year to take the LSAT, you should try to avoid the January LSAT registration for your first test, as more than half of students taking the January test will be frantically striving to increase their score before application deadlines in February.

Remember that you should get your testing done as early as possible since law schools review applications on a rolling basis and you'll want to submit your complete application as soon as the application windows open around October 1.

We work with a variety of students in a number of stages in their LSAT prep processes. We’re here tohelp you develop your own timeline, prepare most effectively for the test, and ultimately see you on your way to a JD.
