The LSAC has recently notified test takers of certain limitations and restrictions regarding the number of times people may take the LSAT. Please see below for details.
The LSAC has advised test takers of the following:
“Starting with the September 2019 test administration test takers would be permitted to take the LSAT:
- Three times in a single year (the testing year goes from June 1 to May 31).
- Five times within the current and five past testing years (the period in which LSAC reports scores to law schools).
- A total of seven times over a lifetime.
- The policy is forward looking, not retroactive. Tests taken prior to September 2019 will not count against these numerical limits.
In addition, test takers would not be permitted to take the LSAT if they have already scored a 180 (perfect score) within the current and five past testing years, the period in which LSAC reports scores to law schools. This policy will be applied retroactively.”
If you have any questions about these upcoming changes, or the likely reasons for them, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
