    Will the july flex also not be counted towards the take limit?

    Do you think the average LSAT score will be higher for LSAT-FLEX tests than traditional tests?

    For people who registered July LSAT, do we need to do anything? Like re-register? in order to take the Flex-lsat?

    Yes. Here is a link for those who are already registered:

    so 'the week of July 12th" does that mean we could have up to the 18th to take it?

    Just for some clarification: will LSAT-Flex be available to international students?

    I called LSAC today and they told me that the test will be administered on Sunday (July 12) and Monday (July 13)

    What about the time? I think in-person was supposed to be at 12:30pm, does that mean LSAT flex will be taken at 12:30pm depending on where you are located?

    The message on the LSAC account said Sunday and Monday for most tests except for special proctoring cases (not sure what this means but I assume most people will take it Sunday June 12 and Monday June 13).

    I’m a US citizen who has gone to live with family in Europe due to the pandemic. Am I still able register for and take the USA LSAT flex? The June 27-28 International LSAT registration deadline doesn’t seem to have been extended.)

    Yeah, you have to login to your LSAC account and confirm with them via an online submission form that you still want to take it in July as opposed to a later date.

    @pm2lawyer, You'd need to contact both the LSAC and Proctoru about this, I think.

    Based on how Flex operated in North America, we should be getting an email soon about scheduling the test. People will be testing in various times throughout multiple days, and that can range from morning to late afternoon.

    Your citizenship does not matter when it comes to registration- it's all about where you will be taking the test. It's too late for anyone to register for the June 27-28 international test. But you can register and take the North American July test if you can get back to the US for the testing.

    I'm in the same situation (US citizen went to Europe due to pandemic) and I could easily sign up for the June and July 'USA' LSAT flex as well.

    Does anyone know if we need to receive an email from LSAC to be able to set up an account with ProctorU? I wanted to test my equipment but it seems like I need to sign up for ProctorU and I'm not sure what to provide for the "Institution" field which is required for an enrollment. https://support.proctoru.com/hc/en-us/articles/115011772748-Equipment-Requirements

    Your account should have an update. If not, then maybe send an email to the support email.

    How can we best prepare for the LSAT flex as opposed to the regular in-person LSAT? Should I be doing my practice tests as I would for the normal test or should I do it as it will be for the flex (only three sections)?

    When is the cutoff where LSAC will automatically sign us up for July Flex vs. grant us a fee waiver, if we are already registered?

  • 7sage1237sage123 Legacy Member
    130 karma

    I signed up for the July Flex after they announced that it was Flex, but the registration still required me to put in a testing center. Am I automatically registered for Flex or do I need to opt in? I haven't received any communications from LSAC.

  • jankleyjankley Legacy Member

    I haven't received any email from LSAC about the test being cancelled for July but through here I found out and registered for the Flex again (ugh).

    I feel like doing Flex style PTs makes more sense, as the importance of the sections changes when there is only one instead of two LR sections, so that will give you a more accurate picture of where you stand and what will bring you the most improvement.

    Plus you save a lot of time and can get more PTs in when you do the shorter version.

    I did not find my school in the list of institutions either, what should we do?
    Thanks for any advice!

    I have a random question, does anyone know how taking 3 sections in the LSAT FLex vs. 4-5 on the regular LSAT will effect scores? Currently, the score received is based on your raw score of how many answered correctly over 4 sections, if you take out 23-26 questions then it seems to me it would be harder to achieve, for example a 160, on the flex than the regular. Am I wrong? Is it the same and I just am not thinking about it the right way? Initially, I thought the 3 sections would be much better because you aren't wondering which is the experimental section and less time spent taxing your brain to it's fullest, but now I am reconsidering. Thoughts??? Or does anyone have a raw scores conversion chart from a recent LSAT flex?

    I have a question- will they disclose all LSAT-Flex's now or it still remains the same policy as pre-flex testing?

    It should be the same - the # you can get wrong will be less to get the same score, but that is because there will also be fewer questions. Another way to look at it is that the percentile you'd need to get a certain score would be roughly the same for the flex and regular. It would be harder to get the same score if you are particularly strong in LR though since an LR section is removed.

    This is the 7sage converter for flex for the prep tests!

    I would assume so considering that you could have a desktop computer. When I asked proctor u support about it they said the proctor can tell if you have two screens so as long as you close your laptop and only one screen (external) is active then you’re fine. Still a little nervous about it but hopefully it’s fine.

    If you close your laptop how does that work with webcam? Do you have to buy an external cam?
