Common Questions about the LSAT

The LSAT is a half-day standardized test required for admission to all American Bar Association (ABA) approved law schools, most Canadian law schools, and many non-ABA-approved law schools.  The test is administered by the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC). The LSAT provides a standard measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills that law schools can use as one of several factors in assessing applicants.

Visit the LSAC website for more information.

  • Reading Comprehension measures your ability to read and understand complex materials.
  • Analytical Reasoning measures your ability to structure relationships and draw logical conclusions about relationships.
  • Logical Reasoning assesses your ability to analyze and evaluate arguments after reading a short passage.
  • Writing sample.

Check the LSAC website for test, cancellation, fees and other fees.

Scores range from 120 to 180. Your score on the LSAT is based on the number of questions you answer correctly within the 4 scored sections of the exam. You are not penalized for incorrect answers.

LSAC takes your raw score and translates it to a score within the standard scale range to account for variance in difficulty on test forms.

Four of the five sections contribute to the test taker's score. LSAC uses the other section to test new questions and/or question formats. You will not know which section is not being scored.

The writing sample is not scored by LSAC, but is forwarded to the law schools to which you are applying. 

A good score is defined as one that gets you into the program you want, not by a number. Check with the programs you are considering, and ask them if they have a minimum and an average to get a better idea of what a good score will be for you. The 50th percentile for everyone that takes the test is approximately 150.

You can contact LSAC at 215-968-1001 or visit the LSAC website.

Practice tests are available free from LSAC. A previous LSAT exam is available in PDF format at the LSAC website.
