LSAT Exemptions Bite the Dust

Tiffany Sanders, J.D. Law School Admissions, LSAT Leave a Comment

So, that whole thing about not having to take the LSAT to get into law school didn’t work out. Just one year into the “LSAT exemption” pilot program that allowed certain schools to admit qualified students without the LSAT (up to 10% of each entering class), the American Bar Association (ABA) is pulling the plug. To be fair, the reasons …

Postponing Your LSAT Test Date

Tiffany Sanders, J.D. Law School Admissions, LSAT Test Prep Leave a Comment

With the June LSAT approaching, the question arises (as it does in the last few weeks before every LSAT administration): Should I postpone my LSAT test date? Maybe. I can’t answer the question for you, but I can tell you what you’ll need to consider in order to make the right decision. How are you scoring on practice tests? It …

February LSAT Scores

Tiffany Sanders, J.D. LSAT Leave a Comment

February LSAT scores are slated for release on Tuesday, March 3. Of course, that doesn’t mean you won’t see them over the weekend: electronic scores are often available ahead of schedule.  So, think of Tuesday as a worst-case scenario and keep an eye out.

In a nutshell…yes. Of course there are exceptions, but generally speaking, an LSAT prep class will help (if you take it seriously), and your LSAT score is a very important piece of your law school application. At most schools, your LSAT score carries more weight than the GPA it took you our years to attain, so it only makes sense …

LSAT test takers come in two basic models: natural test takers who are happy to give a few hours to showing their stuff and are confident that their high scores are a reflection of their natural ability and those who see it as a pointless hoop, an obstacle that must be overcome in order to get on to the business …

Should I Retake the LSAT in February?

That’s a common question this week, after LSAC either blindsided you or gave you cause to celebrate with the New Year’s Day release of December LSAT scores.  The registration deadline for the February LSAT is on Wednesday, so there isn’t much time to weigh your options and assess how much improvement you think you can make between now and February …
