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 $$$.

ABA On Track To Drop LSAT Requirement: What Happens Now?

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...

LSAC's Explanation for the Recent Price Increases

I know everyone saw the recent price increases form LSAC, but you may have missed the explanation they sent to the advisors on the pre-law listserv they maintain: At its meeting this past weekend, the LSAC Board approved fees for the next admission cycle. After careful consideration of the cost of n...

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...

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

I wonder whether the dates for Asia are correct? I'm not sure because stuff is changing on their site as we speak, and historically they have not made clean transitions when updating this kind of info. It usually takes a day or two for everything to sync up (and sometimes longer). Side note, law sc...

September, November, and January LSAT Registration is open

LSAC has just opened up the registration for the next three LSATs after the July test. Given that September will likely close up in certain areas at some point, early registration is usually a benefit if you have a preferred center. LSAC also increased fees for the LSAT and CAS, by $10 each. Not cool.

Re: Should I retake?

If you don't mind me adding my two cents, I'd strongly suggest a retake. The other posters are spot-on in saying that as a splitter you need the extra points, and the bonus to a retake is that there is no downside as far as applications. Schools don't care any more how many times you take the LSAT, ...

I think it was quick for me because I'm covered under the ADA so they may be less likely to question me rather than someone with ADHD or anxiety?

Re: Accommodations Thread

I submitted my request on Monday and received my letter granting my full request yesterday.

That's unfortunate about the experimental, I'm looking at a 8-9 hour...

Re: Accommodations Thread

I'll ask the first question: Is it true that those with extra time don't have to take the experimental section? I've heard about that but not sure if it's a rumor. Also, are accommodated tests given on the same days? It used to be standard that Accommodated test takers did not have to take the expe...

Thanks for putting this together! I have been waiting for such a conversion. Didn’t know if it was in the works or not. Any word on if any law schools intend to use this conversion or when it was released to them in the cycle? Sitting on a 170V+164Q which apparently equates to a 174, which is rough...

Seeing how this is an undisclosed test, I'm not sure if the traditional refresh of LSAC is merited or if I should just constantly hit reload on my email screen.
I'm waiting for the email so I can be depressed and do power shrugs
