When to take the LSAT

Postby boomer17 » Sat Nov 25, 2017 11:55 am


I am trying to decide when to take the LSAT. I'm planning on taking two years off to travel after I get my Bachelor's, then going to law school. I know schools will generally take LSAT scores that are up to five years old, but does a longer gap between the LSAT test date and when one is applying make a difference to admissions people? I will be graduating in May and I'd like to take the LSAT the following fall, but not if taking it roughly two years before I apply would be looked upon negatively by admissions boards.

Good call taking a few years off, and no one will care when you take the lsat as long as it's within the 5 year period. Best of luck!
