    I also saw somewhere there is a January and March date in 2019. That's an abundance of future tests... in the near future.

    Ooooooh intriguing! Anyone heard if that is for sure disclosed? I don't know if any of the new ones will be undisclosed.

    The combination of July being added and the December test now being mid November has just taken a bit of weight off my shoulders. You could take the test 5 times between now and late November (aka the hot-spot for applications!)

    I'm so excited about all of these additional test dates. I'm going to take it in September or November. It's nice that if one gets an undesirable score it's possible to retake it only a couple months later, which wasn't possible before.I think one of the reasons why LSAC is doing this is because the GRE is offered so many times in a year and they're trying to compete.

  • LCMama2017LCMama2017 Alum Member

    Just remember to make sure you ask your school how they view someone taking the lsat multiple times. When I went to the Columbia open house last month, the admissions person clearly said that they would look down on someone taking the lsat multiple times and would require an addendum. So, while its great that lsac is offering us more chances to take the test, I would just check on your schools to see how they view multiple takes.

    More LSATs, more applicants, higher scores, more revenue for LSAC. A positive change but worried about the implications on already saturated legal market and hoping another recession doesnt happen in 2021

    I was pretty sure June was the only 12:30, but according to this LSAC doc that shows the July 2019 test, it's on a Monday at 12:30 just like June. So I am thinking that yes, this will be a 12:30 test since July 23, 2018 is a Monday. All the other tests at 8:30am are on Saturdays.

    @akeegs92 Yeah! I'm thinking I'll keep shooting for June for now, but if I don't feel quite ready as it approaches I'm glad to have the July option

  • TortsillustratedTortsillustrated Alum Member

    I have been reading some posts on the LSAT Reddit that are saying the July will be undisclosed, unfortunately! (Maybe it will be, would like to see official word from the LSAC)

    But this is big news, It seems to me as if the LSAC is making moves to stay in the forefront of the testing world for law school/ combat the frequency of the GRE being offered.

    Yeah, I've heard certain schools do in fact judge based on multiple takes, even if they consider the highest one.

    What I think this new schedule does for us is it allows us to pick a date that works best for when we feel ready.

    I was thinking this too. The # of people interested in law school has jumped recently, whether it be because of a slightly better economy or the "Trump bump," as it were. This new flexibility could lessen the burden of what many consider the biggest road block into law school, which could increase said #.

    At the end of the day, though, we can only control ourselves! So no sense in worrying about other people and what they are doing. :smile:

    But if you're not ready for June, you can delay for one month. The problem is that you won't have your June scores in time or you won't have time to prepare accordingly? I just see this as an advantage for our June test takers to delay for one month instead of taking the June test.

    Also aiming for June. Especially since I have not studied as much as I should have over December/January, opting for the July 23rd date instead of June 11th sort of "resets the clock." That's an extra 6 weeks!

    However, whether it is at 8:30am ot 12:30am is an important consideration. I'm going to assume it is a 12:30 one, which doesn't distinguish it much from June (aside from that extra 6 weeks...)

    But then! There's the consideration of studying during the summer - I know myself well enough to know that the distractions will pile on as of mid-June, which is part of the appeal to the June take anyway...

    DECISIONS!

    Because they want to reuse the test in other administrations, for example, for Sabbath observers etc. Once a test is disclosed, it's gotta be taken out of their rotation of usable test forms.

    Don't think there's any info yet. I just updated the registration page on 7Sage (https://7sage.com/lsat-dates-and-registration-deadlines-for-united-states-and-canada/) with everything that's available, but the July info is not yet up. You may want to contact LSAC to find out about your question.

    I'm pretty bummed at the 12:30 pm test time for July! I took the June 2017 exam and I didn't get home until 8pm after the exam. The exam didn't start until well after 2pm bc it took so long to search everyone and get everyone seated. I was hoping for an 'am time for July.
