How Much Does the LSAT Cost?

 
 average costRegistration Fee: $139 
post Post    

The Law School Admissions Test, or LSAT, is administered by the Law School Admission Council.

Typical costs:

  • The basic registration fee[1] for the LSAT is $139 in the U.S. or $144 in Canada. Regular registration closes about 4 weeks before the test date with specific deadlines[2] available online.
  • The Credential Assembly Service (CAS) fee for LSAT test takers is $124. This includes access to electronic applications for all LSAC-member law schools as well as a summary undergraduate record and letter of recommendation service.
  • A late registration fee costs an additional $68 in the U.S. or $71 in Canada. Late registration closes approximately 3 weeks before each test date with specific deadlines[3] available online.
  • A test date costs an additional $68 in the U.S. or $71 in Canada.
  • A test center change fee costs an additional $35 in the U.S. or $36 in Canada.
  • A non-published testing center[4] may be requested if the testing location is inaccessible or more than 100 miles from the individual's home. Non-published test centers must be requested as far in advance as possible before the deadline[5] and cost an extra $252 in the U.S., $262 in Canada or $335 in other countries.

What should be included:
  • The LSAT is a half-day exam and test dates[6] are offered four times per year at locations across the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean, as well as a number of international testing centers[7] across Europe, Asia, Australia, South America and Africa.
  • The LSAT is made of up five, 35-minute sections, all of which are multiple choice. One of the sections is made of up test questions for future exams, and does not count toward the test-taker's score. An unscored 35-minute writing section is also included with the LSAT. Although no score is awarded, writing samples from this section are sent to an applicant's choice of law schools with test results.
  • The test consists of three types of questions: reading comprehension, analytical reasoning and logical reasoning.
  • If the test taker is unhappy with his or her performance, the LSAT test scores may be voided at no cost. However, this testing session will count as one of the individual's three allowable in a two-year period.
  • The test fee is partially refundable[8] if cancelled by a certain date. For example, an individual in the U.S. registered for the February 13, 2012, LSAT may cancel by January 20, 2012, to receive a $48 refund. Another $48 may be refunded for Credential Assembly Service fee as long no applications, transcripts or letters of recommendation have been processed.
Additional costs:
  • LSAT study tools can cost $10-$200. Online and in-person LSAT study courses typically cost $600-$1,450, and private tutoring can add an additional $100-$300 per hour.
  • If an applicant believes a scoring error occurred, he or she may provide a written request for a rescore of the exam[9] for $42.
  • Old LSAT score reports may be ordered for $42 each.
  • Copies of law school reports[10] may be ordered for $16 each. These reports are created by CAS and include an academic summary, LSAT scores and writing samples, all academic transcripts and letters of recommendation.
Discounts:
  • The Law School Admission Council offers a fee wavier[11] for applicants who cannot afford the LSAT testing fee and can prove this with financial documentation. If approved, the fee waiver entitles the recipient to two LSAT exams within a two-year period, one registration for LSAC's Credential Assembly Service (CAS), four law school reports and an LSAT study guide.
Shopping for the lsat:
  • Students wishing to attend law school after graduation from a four-year college should plan to take the LSAT in June after completing their junior year, according to the University of Notre Dame[12] . This date often helps students avoid conflicts with classes and allows them time to repeat the test[13] if needed.
  • LSAC provides a list of items[14] test takers may bring into the LSAT testing center. The organization also gives tips on applying to law schools[15] .
