LSDAS: Law School Data Assembly Service

he Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS), operated by Law Services, is just what its name implies: a service that assembles your law school admission information, compiles a report about you, and forwards that report to each of the law schools where you apply. Using the LSDAS is not optional. If you want to attend an ABA-approved law school, you must register with the LSDAS and follow its procedures.

If you plan to apply to law schools within a year after taking the LSAT, then you should register for the LSDAS at the same time you register to take the LSAT. On the LSAT registration form, you simply check the LSDAS box, list every undergraduate, graduate, and professional school you've attended, indicate how many law schools you plan to apply to (you don't have to name the law schools, just estimate the minimum number to which you think you'll apply) and pay the LSDAS registration fee.

If you're not sure when you will apply to law schools, or you just choose not to sign up for the LSDAS when you register for the LSAT, you can register for the LSDAS at any time. A registration form is available in the Law Services' Information Book, or you can register by telephone or via the Law Services' web site.

Every undergraduate, graduate, and professional school you have attended must send directly to the LSDAS an official copy of your transcript. You are responsible for requesting each transcript, and you can do so using index-sized postcards that are included with the LSDAS registration materials in the Information Book. Unofficial copies of your transcript will not be accepted. You should request your transcripts during the summer after your junior year of college. If your GPA improves after the fall semester of your senior year, have your university registrar send an updated transcript to the LSDAS. An new report will be prepared by the LSDAS and sent to the law schools where you've applied.

Once you have registered for the LSDAS, had your official transcripts sent, and taken the LSAT, the LSDAS compiles your Law School Master Report. Your Master Report includes this information:

  • Your name and address;
  • All of your undergraduate, graduate, and professional school grades compiled in tabular format by school and year;
  • Photocopies of your official transcripts;
  • Your most recent LSAT score, as well as up to 12 earlier LSAT scores;
  • A photocopy of your most recent LSAT writing sample, and photocopies of up to two writing samples from earlier LSATs;
  • A list of all law schools where you have previously been enrolled;
  • Photocopies of special documents, like records and letters confirming your disability status, if applicable; and
  • Your admission index number for the law schools where you've applied, if the law schools provide that information to the LSDAS and ask the LSDAS to make the calculation.

A copy of your Master Report will be sent to you. Check it carefully to make sure it is complete and accurate. Each of the law schools you apply to will contact the LSDAS and ask for a copy of your Master Report. You are not required to send a copy of it along with your application.
