every two years your LSAT score gets wiped out?

Postby eatmyshorts » Wed Aug 03, 2011 2:09 pm

already took 3 with one of them canceled from Dec 2009

I was told its 3 per two years.

I want to take it again, so If i wait until the Dec. 2011 LSAt will the Dec 2009 be wiped out since its two years and I could try again?

Youre better off petitioning a school to let you take it again.

It won't be "wiped out". The score will still remain on your LSDAS report. Scores are good for five years. If you do this, they'll report that you took it four times. The "three per two years" is only a limitation on how often you can take it, it has nothing to do with how long the scores are good for.

This is a better answer. I didnt really read the last sentence of your post.

LSAC changed their retake policy a little over a month ago. It'll be far more difficult to be exempted from the 3-2 rule.
