December 2012 LSAT

When and Where Can You Take LSAT in December 2012

If you are interested in taking admission to a law school in order to pursue a career in law, one of the most important things you will have to do is to take the Law School Admission Test or the LSAT. If you are planning on taking admission in a law school in fall of 2013, then you need to take the December 2012 LSAT. However, it is better to take it earlier, say in October 2012, as some law schools may not be willing to consider your application if you have taken the LSAT as late as the December of the previous year.

When Can You Take the December 2012 LSAT?

You can take the December 2012 LSAT at the following dates:

  1. At published centers, the December 2012 LSAT will be held on 1st December, 2012 (Saturday) and 3rd December 2012 (Monday). The latter date is intended for Saturday Sabbath observers.
  2. At nonpublished centers, the December 2012 LSAT will be held on the same dates.

You need to be at the test center by 8:30 AM, if your center is in the USA. The reporting time at other centers may vary, but regardless of which center you are taking the test at, you should check the date and time that is given on your admission ticket in case of any variations.

Where Can You Take the December 2012 LSAT?

The LSAT can be taken at any of the test centers that have been allotted for the December 2012 LSAT. You must register yourself by the deadline in order to take the test, as walk-in registration is not permitted for any LSAT. The centers are either published or nonpublished. You have to select the center at the same time that you register for the LSAT. There are limited seats at each center and you must register early if you want to be sure of getting the center of your choice. The list of published centers is available at If the availability of seats at a particular center is important to you, you can register online, as you can check the real-time availability of seats.

If it is not possible for you to travel to a published center to take the test, or you are located further than 100 miles (160 km) from a published center, you can request the LSAC to establish a nonpublished center for you. Keep in mind that the LSAC does not guarantee that it will accommodate every such request. You have to remember to make the request by the given deadline. The procedure to request a nonpublished center is as follows:

  1. Create an account at or call 215.968.1001.
  2. Send a letter to the LSAC and include your account number in it. Provide a list of the large cities near the location you prefer.
  3. Pay the regular fee plus the additional fee for a nonpublished center.
  4. If the LSAC is unable to grant your request, it will offer a refund, or it will register you at the same location for the next regular LSAT, or you may be given an alternate center. You need to mention which of these you prefer in your letter.
