The Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) is a half-day standardized test required by all American Bar Association-approved law schools as part of the admission requirements. Although the LSAT is administered four times per year, it is usually recommended that it is taken by December (for fall admission), however taking it as early as June or September is often advised. Most schools weight the LSAT scores very highly, while most do evaluate the full range of your credentials.
The Law School Admissions Test is consisted of five 35-minute sections of multiple choice questions. Only four sections count towards your overall score, while the last section is considered a 'variable section' which is often used to try out new test questions. A 35-minute writing sample is also taken at the end of the exam, which is not graded, however copies are sent to all law schools in which you are applying.
