How long does the LSAT take?

Postby zlya » Fri Oct 03, 2008 4:46 am

Hello,

I'm sure this has already been asked and answered, but I can't find it anywhere, so how long does the LSAT actually take from arriving at the test center to leaving? I'm trying to calculate train times, and the official booklet says to allow 7 hours, though I just can't believe that's really the case. Plus as the LSAT starts at 2 in London, if it does last 7 hours I'll miss the last train back to my village and could end up stranded in Ipswich! Moreover 'twould be nice to have time to head to a pub and have a celebratory drink or two.

Thanks a load, even if it's just to direct me to another discussion where this is answered!

say an hour to check in and get everyone in place

3 x 35 = 1:45

10 minute break

2 x 35 = 1:10

1/2 hour to collect exams

1 x 35 = :35

4 hours in total, plus some more time to get in and out. The reason why they say give yourself more time is if something goes wrong (which is a possibility).

Had I a place to stay in London or 20 squids to throw around on lodging . . . (maybe I'll flutter my eyelashes and try to get taken home by a nice Londoner . . . is that immoral?)

Thanks for the advice, badfish and obladi, I'll plan accordingly and hope nothing goes terribly wrong!
