When do I take the LSAT? How many times can I take it?
In general, you should start preparing for the exam a year in
advance. The LSAT tests certain skills that you can improve if you
practice them. The more practice, the better. You should never take
the LSAT on a whim. Take it when you're ready. You should plan to
take it only once. Multiple scores are averaged by the LSDAS
reporting service, so you don't necessarily gain much by taking it
again, unless you are convinced you can do significantly better. If
you absolutely bomb the test, there are provisions for canceling
your score, but you must make this decision very quickly after
taking it. If you feel you need to take the test again, discuss your
reasons with your pre-law advisor.
