LSAT test dates for Saturday Sabbath observers

The LSAT is typically administered on Saturdays. However, if you observe the Saturday Sabbath, the Law School Admission Council (or LSAC) offers several exams on different days of the week. You can request this type of testing date through your online LSAC account, but you must also submit an official letter from your minister or rabbi regarding your religious affiliation. More information on LSAT exam dates for Saturday Sabbath observers can be found here.

Nondisclosed LSAT test dates

The February 10, 2018 LSAT exam is a bit different from other testing dates, in that it is “nondisclosed.” This means that the LSAC does not release scored sections after the exam. For test-takers, this also means that you cannot see which questions you answered correctly or incorrectly. Before deciding on this LSAT exam date, ensure you fully understand how a nondisclosed testing session will affect you.

Adequate LSAT prep time

Allow yourself ample prep time before whichever LSAT test date you ultimately choose. Take LSAT practice tests, and evaluate your progress throughout your LSAT review. Be honest with yourself about your target score, as well as how much prep time you will need to reach said score. Remember, too, that LSAT tutoring may help you reach the goals you set for yourself. Best of luck!
