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.
Upcoming Deadlines for the June 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.
Registration for the 2023-2024 Testing Cycle is now open!
Registration for the 2023-2024 testing cycle is now open. 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, 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.
Test Taker Pro-Tip of the Week: Take your time preparing your place to test
For June 2023 test takers, and for those who opt to take the test remotely starting with the August 2023 administration, take a little time to prepare the area in which you’re going to test.
Your testing space should be a quiet, well-lit, and private work area where you can complete the test without interruption. Please note that transparent glass walls are not considered part of a private room and are prohibited. You may not test in a room where there are tablets, laptops, or additional computers not being used to take the exam.
A hard work surface is required. Ensure that your workspace is clean and clear of all prohibited items.
It is very important to have a strong and stable internet connection in order to have a successful remote-testing experience.
