July LSAT Update- some huge numbers

We have breaking and what amounts to record-setting news, although it's not the kind of "record-setting news" that applicants generally want to hear. But, we will put that in context (because it is a bit misleading) after the news, which is as follows: July 2019 LSAT registrants have reached 20,000. For context, on May 7th we reported July registrant numbers of 11,500. These new numbers represent an almost 75 percent increase in registrants since then; and there are still a few days left to sig

June and July LSAT Registrant Data

We were lucky enough to get some great data on upcoming LSAT administration numbers, and we want to share it with you. We've got some analysis for you, a little bit of a teaser for next cycle, and great input from Dave Killoran of Powerscore, who aside from his obvious LSAT expertise has been closely tracking the shift to a digital LSAT. Without further ado: final June 2019 LSAT registrations are slightly below 24,000. Last year, 22,489 applicants took the June LSAT. As we currently only hav

2019-2020 LSAT & The Transition to Digital: What to Expect

With the upcoming shifts LSAC will be making to the LSAT, we wanted to lay out all of the dates the test is available for the 2019-2020 cycle along with all of the information we know about them, especially the July transition to the digital test. * Monday, June 3, 2019 at 12:30 PM — this is the last traditional, on-paper LSAT administration, and it will be "disclosed" (i.e. you will be able to see the questions and which answers/how many you got right and wrong for each section).

How many times can you take the LSAT in a 3 year period?

To be brief, the answer is "unlimited" or technically "limited only by how many tests there will administered in a three year period" and has been since September of 2017. Before then there was a limiting number, and there is still a good deal of bad information out there about that old policy, hence this incredibly brief blog. Again, there is no longer a policy limiting takes, and you can take it and keep taking it. Whether you should is a bit more nuanced [https://blog.spiveyconsulting.com
