Score Release Dates
Scores are released at 9 a.m. ET via test takers’ LSAC accounts. Scores will only be released if the test taker has an approved LSAT Writing sample on file and there are no holds on their account. If you are a first-time test taker, you must complete LSAT Writing before your score can be released.
Your score will be released to the schools to which you have applied at the same time it is released to you, unless you have purchased the LSAT Score Preview option. If you have granted permission to your prelaw advisor to see your score, it will be released to that prelaw advisor on the day following the day it is released to you. If you purchased Score Preview, your score will be released to others only after you have chosen to have it released, or at the end of the Score Preview period if you have not canceled the score.
