The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is one of the most critical factors used to evaluate prospective law school students’ applications.
It is a standardized test administered four times a year at designated testing centers throughout the world, and provides a measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills for law schools looking at applicants.
The test is an important component of the law school admission process. It provides a standard measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills that law school admission offices can use in assessing applicants.
The LSAT consists of five 35-minute sections and a writing sample that is administered at the end of the test. The five sections are composed of multiple-choice questions. Four of the sections contribute to the test taker’s score. The unscored section, commonly referred to as the variable section, is typically used to pretest new test questions or to pre-equate new test forms. The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) does not score the writing sample, but copies of the writing sample are sent to the law schools to which the test taker applies.
Other LSAT Study Options
If you can afford it, tutoring might help you prepare for the LSAT. One-on-one tutoring can provide personal attention and a tutor can tailor the work to your needs.
Preparing for the LSAT might at times be overwhelming, but this is a normal part of studying for such an important test. Realize that all the hard work can pay off and result in a good score. The better your LSAT score, the better your chance of getting into the school of your choice.
