Who says LSAC can’t be nice sometimes? I’ll explain, but first, an action item: If you took the June LSAT and you’re not sure how it went or whether you might want to retake, you should register for the July LSAT now. The deadline is tomorrow. Here’s why.
Last night marked the beginning of the 2018-19 LSAT year. The Law School Admission Council, which writes and administers this exam, decided long ago in its infinite wisdom that it would use a June-to-May calendar year instead of the classic Gregorian calendar we use for pretty much everything else. Apparently, the knowledge that many law school candidates plan several months of their years around the test wasn’t enough for LSAC — it wanted the gravitational pull of the LSAT to be great enough to completely rearrange how we all understand linear time.
