Attention Pre-Law Students: Upcoming LSAT Changes

Attention Pre-Law Students: Upcoming LSAT Changes

By Trevor Larner Major changes are coming for future law students, as LSAC recently announced that the LSAT will be transitioning to digital-only starting with the July 2019 test. If you plan on taking the test in July of 2019, you may be assigned a paper-and-pencil test or a digital test (which test you receive will not be known in advance). However, to make things easier for you during the transition, LSAC is offering July 2019 test takers the option to see their score before making the decision on whether to cancel it. If you decide to cancel, you can take the test once more free of charge through April 2020. Following the July 2019 test, all exams will be administered digitally. Some highlights regarding the transition: June 2019: Last paper/pencil exam. July 2019: Some paper, some digital. Most test takers will not know their format beforehand. As a result, those taking the July 2019 LSAT will be allowed to cancel their score after seeing it. This is a unique opportunity. September 2019: Fully digital exam. The new digital test will be delivered on a tablet interface and will include positive features such as faster reporting of scores. Don’t fret if you have already bought an LSAT review book, as those are still good, but there will soon be new materials specifically designed for the tablet interface. This change coincides with an increase in the number of test dates from six to nine, giving students more flexibility on when to take the exam. The change to the new digital system also requires changes to the writing portion of the...
