Information On LSAT Test Dates
Figuring out specific LSAT test dates can sometimes be annoying. The best thing a student can do is to plan their schedule ahead of time, so that when it is finally time to register for the LSAT they are prepared.
The LSAT is given out four times a year: Once in June, once in October, once in December, and once in February. The LSAT annual cycle begins in June, so the same version of the test will be administered until February of the following year.
Students need to keep in mind that published test center deadline registration usually occurs about a month before the actual test date. For instance, if you would like to take the LSAT on June 7th, you would want to register in late April or early May.
The registration deadline for non-published test centers usually occurs about five to seven days before the normal deadline. For example, if the regular registration date is on May 4th, expect the non-published test center date to be on or before April 30th.
Students can process their LSAT registration in a variety of ways. If you have access to the internet, you can register for the LSAT online on their website. If you want to register by telephone, you can also do so by calling them and providing your information. Along with telephone and internet, students have the option of registering for their LSAT through regular mail.
Keep in mind that students may also register for their LSAT if they have missed the regular deadline. The late deadline for registration by mail extends the regular deadline by seven days. Late registration through the internet or by phone extends the regular deadline by ten days.
Students may also choose to change the location of their test center. This is perfectly acceptable; just understand there is also a deadline for this, which happens about 10 to 12 days after the regular deadline. Students can also be issued a refund for their LSAT registration, but keep in mind that it is a partial refund only.
Students can elect to receive their scores either by e-mail or regular mail. Scores are released by e-mail about 3 to 4 weeks after the test date. Scores may also be released by regular mail, but be aware that there is an additional charge, along with an additional wait time of about seven to ten days.
When figuring out your LSAT test dates, the best thing to remember is to be prepared ahead of time. Stay ahead of the curve by registering early.
