LSAT Retake Limit Lifted

May 19, 2017

The Law School Admission Council has announced that it is lifting a limit on how many times one can take the Law School Admission Test. Until now, people could take the test only three times in any two-year period. The move comes as the LSAT faces increased competition from the Graduate Record Examination, which is now accepted at Harvard Law School as an alternative to the LSAT.

Jeff Thomas, Kaplan Test Prep's executive director of pre-law programs, said via email that he thought the "additional flexibility" would be popular with students. But he questioned whether prospective law students would be well served by taking the test multiple times. He said his advice remains the same: "Prep once, get one killer LSAT score and leave no doubt to admissions officers about your candidacy to your top law school choices."
