What is the LSAT and why is it important?
The LSAT (Law School Admission Test) is required for admission to most law schools and is offered four times each year. The top law schools will be looking for scores that are close to perfect (think 170 out of 180), so if you're aiming high, you need a high score.
What specifically does the LSAT test?
The LSAT has 4 main sections – Logical Reasoning (also known as Arguments), Analytical Reasoning (also known as Games), Reading Comprehension, and an essay
How is the LSAT scored?
The LSAT is scored on a scale of 120 to 180 points. Because most top law schools average multiple LSAT scores, it's best to prepare as thoroughly as possible and only take the test once.

What is the LSAT?
The LSAT, or Law School Admission Test, is a four–hour exam run by the Law School Admissions Council. It is arguably the most significant single factor in law school admissions decisions. Most admissions committees weigh it just as heavily as (or more heavily than) your undergraduate GPA. Many schools also consider LSAT scores when awarding merit scholarships and grants.
How is the LSAT structured?
The LSAT includes approximately 100 multiple–choice questions designed to gauge your reading comprehension, reasoning and analytical skills. It also includes an un-scored 35–minute essay.
How is the LSAT scored?
The LSAT is scored on a scale of 120 to 180, with the median score being a 151. You need to get about 56 questions right (out of 101) to get that median score of 151. Very few people get a perfect score, mainly because the test is designed so that very few people can correctly answer all the questions, let alone do so in the time allotted. Correct responses count equally, and you will not lose points for incorrect or blank responses.
Along with your LSAT score, you will receive a percentile ranking that compares your performance with that of everyone else who has taken the LSAT for the previous three years.
When is the LSAT given?
When it comes to the LSAT, timing is very important. The test is administered four times a year–February, June, September/October and December. Typically, students applying for regular fall admission to a law program take the test either the previous June or October. You can take the test in December, but many schools will have filled at least a portion of their seats by the time your scores hit the admissions office.
