September LSAT results are in today. If you took the September LSAT and want to retake, the LSAC has extended the deadline for you to register for the November LSAT through TOMORROW–Tuesday, October 15. (This extension only applies for September LSAT takers…for everyone else, the deadline to register for the November LSAT was Oct. 10.)
You’ll need to make a quick decision, since the deadline is tomorrow. What should you know/consider about the November exam? Here’s an overview (taken from our Guide to Remaining 2019 LSATs).
November 25, 2019 LSAT Details
- IF you are planning to apply to law school this cycle (to enter in Fall 2020), then this is the latest LSAT we advise taking. (Why? The next LSAT isn’t until January 2020, which is getting late in the cycle due to rolling admissions.)
- This exam is on a Monday, but it’s also during our Fall Break, so current students won’t have to miss class. It may be necessary to miss work.
- This LSAT is not offered on our campus, so takers should plan to travel elsewhere. Registering as early as possible will help secure a seat at a strategic location near campus or near home, if you want to avoid hotel expenses.
- For current students–This exam is very close to finals, and LSAT prep will need to be carefully balanced with academic performance throughout the fall semester.
- This exam is disclosed, meaning that test takers will receive a full report of questions answered correctly and incorrectly.
If you decide to retake, then:
- Get back to LSAT studying right away. This test is six weeks out, and you’ll want to maximize that time in order to see improvement.
- Review your score report carefully from the Sept. exam. What types of questions did you get wrong? Spend your time wisely on improving in those areas.
- Explore a different LSAT prep resource than you used last time.
- Make sure that you are timing yourself, taking full length practice tests, and taking a mix of paper and digital tests (as opposed to using only paper-based previous exams) to get used to the digital format.
