LSAT Prep


Law schools require that applicants take the LSAT entrance exam, which is complex to say the least.  A high LSAT score relative to the schools you're applying to is a key factor in successfully gaining admission.  Ideally, you should begin preparing for the LSAT 1-2 months before your scheduled test date.  For more information, visit www.lsac.org.  Here is our best advice for conquering the LSAT:

1. Start by buying or borrowing a review book.  Use it often and well. Career Education has books in our library, which is located in Bagby 213.  You can also visit the Bortz Library for review materials.  This should only be the start of your review process.

2. Take practice tests. There are a number of free practice tests available through lsac.org, Kaplan, and The Princeton Review.

3. Register for an online class. Studying the subject matter in depth is key to success, and online classes offer the greatest flexibility for H-SC men.  Career Education suggests Knewton as a timely and intensive way to prepare for the LSAT.

4. If it suits your learning style better, take a class in a nearby city. Most test prep providers offer in person classes in cities nearby such as Richmond, Lynchburg, or Charlottesville.  Visit the Career Education and Vocational Reflection Office to learn more.

5. If it's more convenient, H-SC administers the LSAT test a few times a year, in October, December, February, and June.
