LSAT Registration: LSAT Test Dates

LSAT Registration

You should register for the LSAT at least four to six weeks in advance of the scheduled test date. There is no harm in registering early; late registrations must be accompanied by a late fee. You should get a copy of Law Services' free, annual LSAT Registration and Information Book (the Information Book), which is published in February or March of each year. The Information Book contains registration forms, as well as lots of information on registration, the LSAT, and applying to law schools. To get your copy, contact Law Services directly, or ask your school's prelaw advisor if you can pick up a copy somewhere on campus. In addition to registering by mail, you can register by phone, or at Law Services' web site. Appendix B lists contact information for Law Services.

Here are some of the things included on the LSAT registration:

  • A four-digit personal identification number (PIN). If you don't choose one, Law Services will assign one to you. Keep your PIN in a safe place, because you will need it anytime you communicate with Law Services.
  • Your mailing address. The mailing address should be where you'll get your mail around six weeks after the test, since that is when Law Services will send you a report with your test score.
  • The test center code. Each testing location has a test center code, and you specify your first and second choices. Pick the location that will be most convenient to you on the test date.
  • Authorization to release information. By checking this box, you authorize Law Services to release your score to your school's prelaw advisor. You should do so, because you will want to work closely with your prelaw advisor during the law school application process.
  • Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS) registration. If you plan to apply to law schools within a year after you take the LSAT, then register for the LSDAS at the same time you register for the LSAT. For more information on the LSDAS, see "What is the Law School Data Assembly Service?", below.
  • Payment of fees and fee waivers. Be sure that you pay all fees, including any late registration fee, at the time you register. The Information Book explains fee waivers for students who can't afford to pay. Be aware, though, that if you want to request a fee waiver, you must apply about ten weeks before the test date.
  • Special accommodations. If you live in a remote location, observe a Saturday Sabbath, or have a disability that requires accommodation, Law Services will make special arrangements for you. However, you must apply early to allow Law Services time to document your needs and to make the required arrangements.
