LSAT Limits

How many times can I take the LSAT?

You can no longer take the LSAT as many times as you want.

Starting with the September 2019 LSAT, you can take the test only 3 times between June 1 and May 31. And only 5 times in the last five years. And only 7 times in your life. Also, if you’re lucky enough to score 180, you’re done. They won’t let you take it again.

Taking the LSAT in July 2019 or earlier won’t count toward these new limits.

For the vast majority of test-takers, this new policy means that you can take the LSAT no more than 5 times before you apply to law school. And only 3 times if you start taking the LSAT after June 1 and want to apply that fall.

Examples

Joey takes the LSAT in March 2019, June 2019, and July 2019. Because these three tests don’t count toward his limit, he can take the LSAT three more times until June 1, 2020. He’ll then be able to take it two more times. Total: 8 times.

Emma takes the LSAT in July 2019 and September 2019. Because the September LSAT counts toward her limit, she can take it two more times until June 1, 2020. At that point, she can take it two more times. Total: 6 times.

Sarah takes the LSAT in September 2019, November 2019, and January 2020. Because all three tests count toward her limit, she won’t be able to take it again until June 1, 2020. At that point, she can take it two more times. Total: 5 times.

Mike takes the LSAT in January 2020 and February 2020. He can take it one more time before June 1, 2020 and then two more times after that. Or if he waits to take it again, he can take it three more times after June 1, 2020. Total: 5 times.
