Best time to take LSAT?

Postby JustAnotherItalianJD » Sun Dec 26, 2010 6:47 pm

Hi,
I am a second year accounting major. I came in as a Political Science major and took a few classes and decided that I did not want to study it for the next 4 years so I changed to accounting. I am approaching the end of my second year and have just started to get into the core courses of the actual accounting program (I had to do all these prereq classes beforehand). Anyway, I am still interested in law school and just knowing how fast time moves nowadays, I'd like to ask when is the best time to sit for the LSAT? When should I register? I was thinking of taking one class over for my major over the summer and also taking a prep course for the LSAT, or is it too early? Please give me some advice. I look forward to your replies.
Thanks

If you are going to law school directly from undergrad general wisdom says that it is best to take the LSAT the June before your senior year. This way your logic and reading skills have benefited from a lot of college and you will be able to apply early. I would recommend taking the class/studying during your second semester of junior year to prepare you for the test. Register in the January before the test.

If you're going straight from undergrad into law school then take it June of the summer between your Junior and Senior year. That way, if you're satisfied with your score, you can apply as soon as law schools start accepting apps; if you're not satisfied with your score, this choice lets you retake in October, which should still let you submit your apps at a reasonable time.

Thanks again guys. I haven't decided if I want to work a little first, I suppose I'll decide after I take a few more accounting classes and at that point, I'll reevaluate but this gives me a better idea.
Happy Holidays
