Fee FAQs

If I’ve already taken the LSAT and want to take it again, what would it cost?

The cost to retake the LSAT is $190 through June 4, 2019, which is the deadline to register for the July 2019 test. After that, the cost to retake the LSAT is $200 starting with the registration period for the September 2019 test and ending with the registration period for the April 2020 test. The fee includes the multiple-choice portion and LSAT Writing.

I heard that if I take the July 2019 LSAT, I will have the option of seeing my score and then canceling it. I would then be able to take the LSAT again for free. Is that true?

Yes. All July 2019 test takers — whether taking the test on a tablet or a paper booklet — have the option of canceling their score within five business days of receiving it and retaking the LSAT, which includes the multiple-choice portion and LSAT Writing, at no additional charge through the April 2020 test.

If I choose to retake the LSAT, would I get to take LSAT Writing again for free?

You can either choose to retake the full LSAT, which includes the multiple-choice portion and LSAT Writing, for $200 OR, if you want to take just LSAT Writing as a standalone, the cost is $15 per writing sample. You must have completed at least one writing sample for your LSAT score to be released to the school(s) to which you apply.

What would it cost if I only wanted to retake the multiple-choice portion of the LSAT and not LSAT Writing?

Candidates who are eligible to retake the LSAT would pay $190 through the registration period for the July 2019 LSAT which ends June 4, 2019. Candidates would pay $200 beginning with the registration period for the September 2019 LSAT (May 16 through August 1, 2019). That price is good through the registration period for the April 2020 test. There is no discount for not taking LSAT Writing, but if you have already provided a writing sample, it is not necessary to do so again.

What would it cost if I only wanted to take LSAT Writing and not the multiple-choice portion again?

Candidates only need one writing sample posted to their account for a law school report to be released to the school(s) to which they apply. Candidates who wish to retake LSAT Writing can do so for $15 per writing sample. They may retake LSAT Writing up to three times total per testing year, and no more than five times within five years, with the deadline for the April 2020 test being the last time one can register for standalone LSAT Writing.
