Re-Taker Question: Can I Reuse LSAT Practice Tests?

Here’s a common dilemma for LSAT preppers: You studied long and hard for the LSAT, but something went wrong. You either didn’t end up taking the LSAT, or you took it and it didn’t go very well. Now you’re set on retaking or rescheduling, but you’re worried that you may have run out of study materials — mainly practice tests — on your first run.

Worry not.

Ideally, you want to have about three new practice tests in reserve. But even if you have zero, you’re still going to be okay.

It’s completely fine to retake and redo old practice LSATs. Sure, you’re going to remember a question or two or three, but this isn’t really a problem.

What Should You Do if You Didn’t Get the LSAT Score You Want?

June 2010 LSAT scores were released on Friday—“released” being a euphemism for invading the inbox of thousands of panic-stricken students feverishly hitting the gmail refresh button in two-second intervals.

At this point, you’re experiencing one of three scenarios:

2.    You scored about what you thought
3.    You scored lower on the June LSAT than you thought
