The important information you need to know about the LSAT October 2012 and October 2011 is given as follows:

When Should You Take the LSAT?

The timing of the LSAT you take depends on when you want to apply to law schools and in which year you want to begin your education in law. If you are interested in joining a law school in the fall of 2012, then you should have taken the LSAT latest by December 2011. However, it was safer to have taken the LSAT earlier, such as in October of 2011. This is because there are some law schools which prefer that you take an earlier LSAT. Similarly, if you are interested in joining a law school by fall of 2013, then you should take the LSAT October 2012.

You may request a change of test date after registration, but keep in mind that there are deadlines to do so. You can also attempt the LSAT more than once, but you need to remember that you are not permitted to take the LSAT more than three times in two-year period. Prior registration for the LSAT is mandatory for anyone who wants to take the test as walk-in registration is not permitted at any of the test centers.

Test Centers for LSAT October 2012 and October 2011:

You can get the list of published centers for LSAT October 2012 and 2011 on the official website of the LSAC, LSAC.org. If you want a nonpublished center you can apply for it. You should register as early as possible as there are a limited number of seats available at a center. The seats are allotted on a first-come first-served basis. There is no guarantee given by the LSAC that it will allot the first-choice center to everyone who applies for registration. If you apply online, you will be able to check real-time availability of seats at your choice of center.

Registration Fees and Refunds:

For the October 2011 LSAT, the registration fee for published centers in the USA was $139. The fee for the Credential Assembly Service was $124. For nonpublished centers in the USA, the registration fee is $252 and for centers outside the USA, it is $335. You can get a refund of the registration fees, but the refund amount is $48. For the LSAT October 2012, the fees are the same as per the latest information on the official website.

It is wise to make important decisions regarding the LSAT as early as possible. The registration process, the selection of the center, payment of fees and requesting a change in the test center or date, can all take time. Since there are deadlines in place for all of these important procedures, it is best to allow a safe margin of time for each step. Whether you were planning to take the LSAT in 2011 or you are willing to wait until LSAT October 2012, you should begin the registration process as soon as you can.
