After LSAC made the rather small announcement earlier this year about transitioning the LSAT to a digital exam beginning in July 2019, questions have swirled around the changes: which test centers will have the digital LSAT, will all the LSATs be on tablets, can you choose if you want to take the LSAT on a tablet or on paper…etc. Students have also raised concerns about test day experiences, including if there will be scratch paper, screen readers, and more timing accommodations. To add to the excitement (or confusion), LSAC has also confirmed that the unscored writing sample will now be a take-home portion of the test.
We’ve already broken down many of these questions, but there’s clearly much more to unpack. Although the FAQ section of the LSAC website and our past blog articles are great places to start, Blueprint decided to give students a chance to ask their questions and voice their anxieties in-person. We’re holding free LSAT seminars across the country to go over all the changes. Led by Blueprint LSAT instructors, these events are your chances to get answers and learn the best ways to prep for the digital exam.
Below are seminars coming up this month. Register for them (and our other upcoming events) here.
Can’t make these dates? No worries, we’ll have more in 2019. If you want us to hold a Digital LSAT Seminar at your school or in your city, contact us at email@example.com. Blueprint’s mission is to ensure you’re prepared for the LSAT, whether it be the paper-and-pencil or digital format. Get a head start on your prep by signing up for a free MyBlueprint account and practicing on a tablet—LSAC will be administering the LSAT on Microsoft Surface Go Tablets, *hint* *hint*.
As always, we will keep you informed and up-to-date on the latest digital LSAT news like it’s our job….because, well, it is!
