Another LSAT administration, another weather delay.

Just four months after Hurricane Sandy caused a delay in the release of October LSAT scores, a blizzard in the northeast United States has forced LSAC to close a number of February LSAT testing centers. The full list of LSAT testing centers that will be closed can be found here. As of Friday morning there are eight states affected: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. A handful of February LSAT testing centers in Canada have also been closed.

If you were scheduled to take the February LSAT in one of the affected LSAT testing centers, you should receive a notification from LSAC about the situation, as well as an email within a week of when and where your rescheduled LSAT will take place. You should expect to take a different exam from that of the regularly scheduled February LSATs that LSAC will administer on Saturday.

You can also follow LSAC on Twitter to receive updates on the updates.

We’ll keep you posted as we hear more. In the meantime, chime in with your thoughts in the comments. Were you affected by an LSAT testing center closure? If so, how do you feel? Is it an advantage or disadvantage to get more time to study for the February LSAT?

Some people have expressed trouble seeing the list of February LSAT testing center closures on LSAC’s website. Here are two screenshots of the closures as of Friday afternoon:

    I clicked on your link. There is not information of closings on the LSAC

  2. Jim says:

    I’ve looked on the homepage and no dice as of yet. Waiting for a list of closures so I know if I have to break out the dog sled or snowshoe it Saturday morning.

  3. Devony says:

    I wonder why Suffolk is closed, but BU is not?? Doesn’t make much sense to me. They’re practically neighbors.

    • Hank says:

      Reminder: LSAC will provide another update Friday morning. More closures are likely.

    • Bill Tuck says:

      Given the travel conditions in Boston on Feb 9th, safety concerns should override. If you were forced to cancel due to BU’s failure to cancel or were simply unable to reach the center, contact LSAC and insist on a refund or the right to the same options offered those whose test center administrators actually showed proper concern for the safety of test takers and canceled the administration.

      The current policy of leaving cancellations to the sole discretion of test center administrators is absurd. It is exposes test takers to unfair and arbitrary treatment and a risk to life and safety which are untenable. In cases where states of emergency and travel advisory/ bans have been issued, LSAC should automatically cancel administrations and offer retakes and or refunds.

    Really felt like I was peaking and prepped for this week. This is a major, major blow.

  5. Michael says:

    Definitely a disadvantage. I timed my PTs perfectly so that I had taken them all by this past Wednesday; I’m now out of study material. I hope the test is only postponed for a week… Any more than that, and I’m screwed.

  6. Chris says:

    I have been studying for 40+hrs this week just to take the test. I am ready, but I don’t know how ready my test score may be..But 1-3 Weeks postponement wouldn’t be bad to work on my weak areas!

  7. Al says:

    I needed to disable AdBlock on my browser to see the updates, but they are definitely listed on the LSAC.org website.

  8. Brianne says:

    Will access to blueprint be extended for those of us affected by the storm? I know my “plan” runs out as of the Feb. test date, but I’d really appreciate continued access until I’m able to take the rescheduled test.

    • Hank says:

      You automatically have access to your account for two weeks after the LSAT. It is unlikely LSAC will reschedule two weeks from now, so you should be good to go.

    I have yet to receive an email from LSAC confirming that the test center will be closed. However, the center has been listed as closed for tomorrow. Should I be worried?
