LSAT Registration Question

Postby BruceDenton » Thu Feb 24, 2011 8:47 pm

Small dilemma I have regarding LSAT registration:

I'm a current junior and would like to apply next cycle to matriculate in Fall '12. I'm planning on taking the LSAT this June. However, I'm not sure whether I will be on the east coast or west coast during the test date. Additionally, I have only done a little prep so far (a cold diagnostic test and reading through a book) and am not sure I am ready to take it in June (might want the summer to prep more). I have read, however, that the June LSAT fills up early. I just checked on LSAC's website, and almost all the locations near both places I'd be are still available as of now.

Question: If I sign up, can I decide later not to take the test, and not have this show up on my application? Like say I decide in April not to take it anymore.

Am I just being ridiculous in being worried about having to sign up this early? Sorry, I'm new at this.

yes, you can reschedule up to a month (the exact dates are listed on LSAC.org) of the upcoming test. If you reschedule or cancel altogether, it will not show up on your record.

Thank you, that was very helpful. I'll go ahead an register for both "coasts" and decide later.

hmmm, not sure if LSAC allows multiple simultaneous registrations. Give them a call (you can always register by phone too).

I'll look into that, thanks.

How much later than now do you think I could still get a spot? Both places I'd be have several testing locations if that helps.

Also, if I sign up for June and cancel ahead of time, do I get a refund / am I able to use that money for a later test date?

you should get a spot if you register in march. April/May is pushing it. Depending on the timeframe, there may or may not be a fee associated with canceling and rescheduling.

Uhhm, for registration dates, deadlines, fees and procedures, there is always the go-to source that is chock full of correct answers: LSAC!

http://www.lsac.org/JD/LSAT/test-dates-deadlines.asp

http://www.lsac.org/JD/LSAT/test-dates-us-june11.asp

http://www.lsac.org/JD/LSAT/lsat-fees.asp#u11-12

However, nobody here or at LSAC can give you a reliable answer about when particular test centers will fill up or when you will be ready to take the test since the future is yet to be determined. :wink:
