If I’ve already taken the LSAT and want to take it again, what would it cost?
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.
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?
Beginning with the registration period for the September 2019 LSAT, candidates would pay $200. 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.
