LSAT Inbox

Welcome to the LSAT Inbox! This is a weekly blog series that answers frequently asked questions about the LSAT®. We encourage you to check back often for answers to more questions you may have as you prepare for the test.

Where can I see the full list of available test centers?

Beginning in August 2023, most test takers will be able to choose to take the LSAT in person or remotely. If you choose to take the LSAT in person, you’ll need to choose a test center location. A preliminary list of test centers is available to test takers through your online account. The definitive list of available test centers for each administration will be available when scheduling opens for each administration.

What should I know about the experimental section before taking the LSAT? Is it included in my score? Does everyone receive the same experimental section?

The multiple-choice portion of the LSAT includes three scored sections and one unscored section, which enables LSAC to validate new test questions for future use. This validation process is a vital part of our commitment to equity and helps us ensure that our questions continue their long standard of being free from any kind of bias. The unscored section can be any one of the question types — Reading Comprehension, Analytical Reasoning, or Logical Reasoning — and can occur at any point in the test.

Just as there are multiple versions of the LSAT given during each test administration, there are also multiple experimental sections. You will not necessarily receive the same experimental section as other test takers in your same administration, and the sections may not be given in the same order.

Would it be possible to take the remotely proctored LSAT during a non-international administration if I live in the U.S. but will be abroad when testing?

If a remote test taker will be located outside the U.S., U.S. territories, and Canada while taking the LSAT, they may only test during an international administration and must select the region from which they will be testing upon registering.

They may also be required to provide clarification regarding the region from which they will be testing if it differs from the permanent address listed on their account.
