LSAT Dates 2012

LSAT Dates 2012 That Are Best Suited for Admissions

Every year LSAC conducts the LSAT tests 4 times. It is conducted in February, June, October and December. Of all the four LSAT test months June is considered the best. This is so because there is no undergaraduate exam scheduled during this month and therefore no exam pressure. Full time can be spent for the LSAT preparation. Students with light undergraduate work consider October LSAT test as a good choice. When LSAT is taken in June or October a December LSAT is available if you want to take a retest. December is considered the best fall back test date since enough time will be there after the results are out to apply to different law schools. Law schools process the applications as and when they receive them, so an earlier application stands a better chance of getting admission. February is the least preferred LSAT test month since the admission process in most law schools will be over by the time the results are published. And the February LSAT is non-disclosed. You will get the score card but the exam materials will not be given.

For Sabbath observers LSAC usually gives alternate dates. In LSAT dates 2012 also there are special dates for Sabbath observers.

If you want to apply for a fall admission you have to take up the test in the previous year. If you are applying for Fall 2013 law school admissions, June will be an ideal time to take up the test. If you want to take up the test in February, you may not have enough time to prepare and the last date for registration is over. Usually the registration for applying to the test closes 1 month before the test date. Admission processes in law schools will begin by September 2012 for the fall 2013 commencement. So if you take your LSAT in June, you can apply on the opening day of the admissions. Since law schools follow a rolling admissions format, earlier the application better will be your chances.

October can also be considered but that should be a second choice. If you feel you may not have enough time to prepare for the test in June, then October will be the best test date.

The best test date will vary according to each person's needs. Points to consider before deciding on a test date:

  • College Admission Year

    Since the LSAT score is valid for 5 years, you can take the test during the undergraduation course or later. So the year and time you want to join a law school will determine a good LSAT date.

  • Time Required To Prepare For The Test

    You must first consider the time you may require for the preparation. You should attend the test only after a thorough preparation.

  • The Preferable Test Timing

    Though most LSAT dates 2012 are scheduled in the morning session, the June 11th test is scheduled for the afternoon. Some may prefer the afternoon session. Then that date can be decided as the test date.

  • Availability Of The Test Date And Center

    Earlier you register higher are the chances that you will get that particular test date. Since there are only few LSAT dates 2012, the centers get filled up fast. So make an early decision and register.

Since there are few LSAT dates 2012, each person can have a different preference for the best LSAT date; but for Fall 2013 admissions June 2012 test date is the best.
