The LSAT This Week

Welcome to The LSAT This Week! This is a weekly blog series with all you need to know about the LSAT®, including upcoming deadlines, how to prepare for the test, how to avoid having your session flagged, and more. Be sure to come back often to read the latest information you’ll need to know as you prepare for your test.

Registration for the 2023-2024 Testing Cycle Opens May 17

Registration for the 2023-2024 testing cycle will open at 12 noon E.T. on Wednesday, May 17. Test takers will have the option to register for any LSAT administration through June 2024. Furthermore, starting in August, most test takers will have the option of taking their LSAT at home in the currently online, remotely proctored format or in person at a professional testing center.

When registering, most test takers will be asked to state their preference of whether to test at home or at a test center. Regardless of your choice, you will not make your decision final until after scheduling opens for the administration you’re registering for. For more information, please visit our website to view the testing dates and learn more testing at a test center or testing remotely.

Upcoming Deadlines for the June LSAT

Request for Assistance: We recognize that not every test taker has access to a computer. LSAC is able to provide free loaner equipment to any test taker in the United States or Canada who needs it. We also recognize that not every test taker has access to reliable internet service or a quiet place to test, so we are happy to provide hotel reimbursement up to US $125 to any test taker in the United States or Canada who takes the test at a local hotel, or similar location, and provides the necessary documentation. The deadline to request this assistance, through your account, is Sunday, May 21.

Please note that, starting with the August 2023 LSAT, this assistance will no longer be available for LSAT test takers as test centers will be equipped with the best equipment, environment, and technology for the LSAT.

Scheduling: Scheduling for the June LSAT will start at 12 noon ET on Thursday, May 25. At that time, all June LSAT registrants will receive an email communication with instructions on how to schedule their test and the scheduling window available to them.

LSAT Writing: All test takers must have a completed LSAT Writing sample on file in order to receive their score or have their score released to law schools. LSAT Writing for the June LSAT will open on Thursday, June 1. Given the large volume of test takers, we strongly encourage you to complete your LSAT Writing as soon as the window opens to complete it.

Remember that if you have an LSAT Writing sample from a previous LSAT administration, you do not need to submit a new writing sample.

Test Taker Pro-Tip of the Week: A Picture is Worth … a Thousand Cancellations

Taking a picture of your computer screen at any point in the testing process will flag your test for review and could ultimately be grounds for cancellation. Similarly, sharing any test content or talking about test content – on online forums or social media (and that includes the r/LSAT Sub-Reddit), or even one-on-one conversations – could put your test, and all the time you invested, in jeopardy.

Remember, you don’t need to take a picture of your computer screen at any time – even after you hit “submit.” We have a record of your test from the moment you check in and we also have a video, so you don’t need to save your own evidence of taking or completing the test.
