Taking the LSAT abroad

Post by meat tornado » Mon May 27, 2013 9:33 pm

I'm moving to Vienna temporarily and am planning on taking the October LSAT there. Does anyone have experience with taking the official test abroad? Should I expect anything different?

I didnt take it abroad but one difference I know of is that you wont be taking the same LSAT as the one given in the states. Different questions, and most likely a different amount of questions you can miss to get a 170.

Took it three times in South Korea. The facilities were nice and I have no complaints other than the fact that all my tests were not disclosed. This really sucked because I couldn't see how many I missed on each section and review my incorrect answers.

All of the above. Took my test in London last December and you will not be sitting the same test as those in the US. And, as mentioned by togepi, these are non-disclosed tests so it's difficult to see where you might have gone wrong etc.

source? are you talking +/- 1 question or will it be wilder?
The source is TLS. Typically there are discussion threads for the foreign tests after every administration.

The 170 curve has been between like -9 and -14 within the past few years so its easy to imagine it could be anything on an undisclosed test.

Same limitations as the Sabbath administration (for all tests other than June): undisclosed, different test/curve, and (I think) different time scores are released?

From my experience scores were released at the same time
