LSAT Tutoring

The LSAT is an exam that plays a pivotal role in law school admissions. It is weighed at least as heavily as the undergraduate grade point average for admission to many selective law schools.

Our LSAT Tutoring Program

Our educational and comprehensive approach to LSAT preparation has led to dramatic score improvements, sharper reasoning skills, and heightened self-confidence. We evaluate each student's strengths and weaknesses, develop an individual program that meets the student's needs, and emphasize a thorough analysis of the exam itself.

Through weekly meetings and homework, we present methods for identifying and understanding the specific question types encountered on the LSAT. Proctored, full-length practice tests provide opportunities for students to exercise techniques for solving problems on each section of the test.

Contact us to speak to a program consultant about your goals and set up a diagnostic LSAT.

Program Length

Our LSAT program is long-term and rigorous. We recommend that students dedicate a few months to preparing for the LSAT. This thorough approach allows students to achieve their best possible results on this important exam.

Digital LSAT

LSAC has announced that the LSAT will be administered as a digital test on tablets starting in July 2019, with a full transition to digital-only in all locations in September 2019. The format and content of the test will not otherwise change from the current paper LSAT.

Law Schools Accepting the GRE/GMAT

Several law schools have announced plans to accept the GRE or GMAT as an alternative to the LSAT. A downloadable list of these law schools is available here.

How is the LSAT Scored?

  • LSAT scores are scaled from 120 to 180, based on the test-taker's performance on the multiple-choice sections.
  • The essay is unscored, but it is sent to the applicant's selected law schools as part of the LSAT score report.

When is the LSAT Taken?

The LSAT will be administered as a digital test on tablets starting in July 2019, with a full transition to digital-only in all locations in September 2019. Through this transition, the LSAT will be offered June 2019, July 2019, September 2019, October 2019, November 2019, January 2020, February 2020, March 2020, and April 2020. 

 

LSAT testing limits

LSAC will start imposing testing limits beginning with the September 2019 LSAT administration:

  • Students will be able to take the LSAT no more than three times in a single testing year.
  • Students will be able to take the LSAT no more than five times in the current and past five testing years.
  • Students will be able to take the LSAT no more than seven times over a lifetime.

LSAC defines a testing year as June 1 through May 31. These limits will not be applied retroactively, so tests taken before September 2019 will not apply to these limits.

Additionally, LSAC will not allow anyone who has scored a 180 within the current and past five testing years to retake the test, even if they achieved this score before September 2019.
