What to do before you register for the June LSAT

Before you register you need to determine if the June LSAT is right for you. One advantage of taking the June LSAT is that you get the exam out of the way early in the application process. This allows for more time to focus on the other parts of your law school application, such as your personal statement or resume.
However, if you don’t have sufficient time now to dedicate to studying for the LSAT, or will have more time to study in late summer and fall, I’d recommend considering the September, October, or November LSAT.

Your LSAT score is a crucial piece of your application—it affects your admission chances and your scholarship offers. Make sure the LSAT test date you choose will allow you to get your best score possible.

Making the decision

To decide whether the June LSAT is right for you, follow these steps:

1. Take a practice test.

Purchase a copy of 10 Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests Volume VI and take a real LSAT exam from a recent year. Find a quiet place, like a library, to take the practice test and do the whole thing in one sitting (including the writing sample).
Be sure to time yourself strictly—it’s critical to accurately assess your starting point.
2. Score your practice test.
Use the answer keys and conversion tables at the back of each test in your book to figure out what you scored. More importantly, look at how many questions you missed in each section and to determine your strengths and weaknesses. Knowing these will allow you to structure your preparation accordingly.
3. Determine your goal score.
If you haven’t already, start researching schools and determine the score you’ll need to be competitive. If you’re considering a top tier law school, be sure to familiarize yourself with the top 100 school’s average LSAT scores.
Remember, you don’t have to score at or above a school’s 75th percentile to be competitive. Determine the right LSAT prep goal for you based on your starting score and your target schools.
4. Build a study plan.
The final step is to estimate how long it will take you to get from your current score to your goal score. For most people, that’s somewhere in the range of 2-6 months. That means taking the June 2019 LSAT is going to put you on a tight schedule.

If you need to increase your score by less than 10 points, you’re in great shape. However, if you’re trying to improve by more than 10 points in two months, you have a real challenge ahead of you. Consider postponing to the September, October, or November 2019 LSAT and giving yourself a few more months to prepare. Remember that following a LSAT study plan is key—do not try to go this alone!

Deciding when to take the LSAT is a critical decision in the application process for law school. Be sure to understand the advantages and disadvantages of all the LSAT test dates offered before you decide which administration is right for you.


The deadline to register for the June LSAT is quickly approaching. Take the time now to decide if the June LSAT is right for you by:

  • Determining your starting LSAT score based on a practice test;
  • Setting your goal score based on your target law schools; and
  • Establishing how much time you need, and how much time you actually have, to dedicate to LSAT prep.

Once you go through these steps, you’ll feel confident making your decision.

Whenever you decide to take the LSAT, remember the key to getting your best score on the LSAT is making sure you have sufficient time to prepare. Best of luck whenever you decide to take the LSAT!
