Re: BREAKING NEWS: November 2020 LSAT will be a Flex

It doesn't appear they will re-open it. They just reinstated the limits, and that was during the Flex administrations so I can't see it :/ If a candidate has both a GRE and an LSAT score, law schools are obligated to use the LSAT score. so, if you have one on record, there's no point in taking the G...

Since we’re seeing a lot of LSAT Writing results that are delayed right now, I talked to LSAC yesterday about the status on the processing. Here’s the story on what’s happening: If you’ve taken the LSAT Writing already, and are still waiting on your results , you are likely in a queue to have your s...

BREAKING NEWS: November 2020 LSAT will be a Flex

They have also moved up the date of the first November tests by a week, from November 14th to November 7th. Along with the earlier star...

Knowing LSAC they will still likely find a way to take forever actually providing test takers their scores.
You are correct! Somewhat amazingly, they have stated that despite the digital format it will still take the same amount of time to release scores.

Re: Digital LSAT Dates Announced

That "score preview/retake for free" option exists only for July test takers, so after that point it won't have an impact.

They haven't said anything about fees, but having watched all the recent increases in years, I expect costs to rise.

Digital LSAT Dates Announced

Per LSAC, the Digital LSAT will begin with the July 2019 exam . That will be a "transitional" test, with some students being assigned paper and others digital. The big bonus: you get to see your score before cancelling, and you can retake for free anytime up until April 2020 if you cancel. Then, in ...

Re: LSAC To Begin Testing Online Writing Sample

I'm pretty sure that if they graded it, they'd make it a separate score. that's how it works on the GRE/GMAT, and I can't see LSAC messing with the meaning of the 120-180 scale in order to add a writing component.

Re: LSAC To Begin Testing Online Writing Sample

Funny, we've been debating that since we first received word of the announcement. I do think it will bump it up incrementally, since now it will be a nicely typed statement that wasn't done after a grueling 4 hour test. It will be easier to read, and hence more likely to be read. So, more important ...

ABA Drops Resolution That Would Have Scrapped The LSAT

The ABA today dropped a resolution that would have eliminated the LSAT as a requirement for admission to law school. For now the LSAT is still required, unless a school can show that an alternate test (like the GRE) is valid. So, we'll still likely see the GRE continuing to moving in, but perhaps mo...

Re: July 2018 Study Group

It looks like today's exam was the same as the February 2014 LSAT, which is in the 2010-2014 window we thought was most likely. Not an easy test though, so the scale will likely be a bit looser, maybe -12 or so.

Re: June LSAT Waiters Thread

Any ideas for curve? I’m thinking -7 Killorian thinks it’s a -10 or a -11. I think probably -10 but a -9 isn’t impossible (gulp). I don’t think it will be -7 though I could be wrong. What makes you think that? I settled in on -10 as the final prediction. Here's to hoping I'm wrong though, and it's ...

Re: LSAC's Explanation for the Recent Price Increases

That would at least make some sense as far as explaining the price jumps. But that's not what they are promising or delivering of course. For them, this is business as usual, meaning to make $$$.

You may have heard that on Friday the ABA passed the resolution to proceed with the plan to drop the LSAT as an admissions requirement at law schools (it was a close vote too: 9-8). It's not final until the ABA House votes on it (probably in August), but it's getting close to being a reality. That m...

Re: September, November, and January LSAT Registration is open

This is robbery. I agree. I'd bet they will say that adding extra LSATs has raised their costs, but if you look at their IRS Form 990, you can see they are sitting on over $200 million in net assets. To raise fees across the board and provide no extra service while facing competition from the GRE a...
