LSAC Expiration Date

Postby sweetfrenchtoast » Thu Jul 12, 2012 9:06 pm

Hi All,

My LSAC account expires in November. I'll be taking the LSAT in October and (most likely) applying this cycle. While I'm not worried about my LSAT being kept on file (for 5 years, yada yada), I am worried about whether they'll hold my letters of reccomendation, transcripts, etc. What's the deal here? Is your entire account renewed for 5 years once you take the LSAT? Or should I cancel this account and make a new one?

I know that this question has been dealt with ad nauseum but I can't seem to find any solid answer in the forum for my situation. Apologies!!!!

Why don't you ask LSAC?

Thought I'd ask a community of people who may have dealt with a similar situation while I wait for a full response from them but thanks for the advice!

I called LSAC once and they were very responsive, although they didn't give me the answer I wanted to hear. Other people have reported the same thing.

This is more for other LS noobs out there, but definitely call LSAC if you have a question. Better than trusting a bunch of randoms on the internet if it's something important...

For those interested, your account will be reactivated for 2 years once you register for the LSAT or apply to a school.

I mean, seriously, OP, will you have the same attitude toward enrolment procedures? bar requirements? Court filings?
I don't mean to be harsh, but, grow up.
