LSAT Test Results

LSAT Result Declaration and Validity-Details and Implications

The LSAT test results are expressed in two ways, the first is the LSAT score and the second is a derivative of this LSAT score called the LSAT score percentile. The three sections of the LSAT contain various questions whose answer options are given. Every question carries equal marks. No marks are deducted for wrong answers. All questions/answers have the same value. Once all the correct answers in a test are valued and a total is arrived at, then the score is measured in a statistical table through comparing the averages. An LSAT score average is 121 onwards. 180 is the maximum or highest score and 120 is the least. It is very difficult and can be erroneous to decide which applicant is more suitable than the other based on actual scores because different applicants answer different question sets. Thus, a statistical average value is derived and then compared to arrive at the test scores.

The scores are also shown in percentages. The percentile value depicts the performance of the candidate in relationship with the other candidates. The official website of the LSAT i.e. www.lsac.org explains clearly the scoring process and its parameters.





How the LSAT test results are declared:

The LSAT test results are declared in two ways; by email and by mail.

  • LSAT test results by e-mail: Some applicants of the LSAT make an online account with the LSAC. That account is on the website, www.lsac.org. Within three weeks of taking the test, every candidate having this account is sent the LSAT test result by email on their respective account names. The candidates should keep checking their account to obtain their results as soon as they arrive. The LSAC does not charge applicants for these results.
  • LSAT test results by mail: Applicants who have an account with the LSAC are charged a fee to obtain their results via mail. Other applicants receive their LSAT test results by mail after four weeks of the test. The mailing address is the one used during registration for the LSAT. The mailing address should be your own address as the LSAC will not mail your results to anyone else but you.

Points to ponder:

  • The LSAC is the sole authority for the LSAT test results.
  • The test results are sent only by e-mail and mail.
  • Candidates cannot request the LSAC to release the test results to anyone else through fax or through mail.
  • Candidates can request the LSAC to release the LSAT test results to the administration of the law schools that they have applied to and their law school counsellors, if any.
  • The 'candidate referral service' of the LSAC provides students with the option of having their LSAT test results referred to the various law schools associated with the LSAC.

Things to remember:

  • If, for any reason, you are unhappy with your test and do not wish to know your scores then you can request for a cancellation of scores. The LSAC website, www.lsac.org gives you the details of the process of cancellation. The LSAC solely secures the right of sending the LSAT test results and processing their cancellation.
  • The LSAT test results are delivered to you along with test results of all the other LSATs that you might have taken. In simple words, if this is not your first attempt at the LSAT then your current scores will be given to you along with your previous LSAT scores.
  • LSAT test results prior to June 2006 are not considered valid for current applications and therefore are not delivered with your current scores even if you have taken the LSAT before.
