Who wants to wake up for a test, THAT DOESN’T EVEN COUNT, at 8 AM on a Saturday!? I know who! Students who are thinking of going to law school! Practice LSATs are a huge benefit to students and if you go to Texas Tech, the best part is, it’s FREE! All you have to do is sign up! Tech hosts 2 practice LSATs per semester. One hosted by Princeton Review and the other hosted by Kaplan Test Prep! The closest test that is coming up will be hosted on February 23 at 8:30 AM in the chemistry building room 49! If you cannot attend this upcoming test then another practice LSAT will be held by Princeton Review on April 9th also at 8:30 in the chemistry building room 49!
A lot of students see that practice LSAT is given for free and don’t take them! Why you might ask? With the early morning timing on a weekend, most students just put it off until their later years, but honestly it’s best to take them even as a freshman! Why? Because the LSAT is BEATABLE! The LSAT is one of the few tests that can be beaten and the best way to prepare for it is to encounter the test multiple times! The more practice you get, the better your score can get and instead of wasting money taking the real LSAT over and over again, you can do it free and confidential right now!
Now, all of these practice LSATs are not just for fun. They are to prepare you for the real LSAT which is offered 4 times a year. One in October, December, February, and June! Most feel that the October is the best time to take the LSAT simply because if you do not get the score you want you can retake it in December to improve your score still in time for law school deadlines! The ideal time is to take the LSAT either the summer or fall of the beginning of your senior year in college so deadlines can be met! It is best to only take the LSAT two times as law schools can see how many times you take it. This is why practicing with the practice LSAT is so ideal! Scoring ranges from 120-180! Each law school has an average LSAT score they want for admittance into their school which simply can be found by checking their websites! The LSAT is composed of 5 total sections: 2 logical reasoning, 1 analytical reasoning, reading comprehension, and one essay section! The thing that gets most people is that the LSAT is a TIMED test! A lot of people say if they had all day to take the LSAT it would be easy, but that is not the case. It is best to see the test as much as possible and that is why taking practice LSATs is ideal for getting good scores on LSAT!
I hope you all can now see the importance of the practice LSATs and take advantage of the free ones Tech offers! Hope to see you all at the upcoming practice LSATs! Good luck!
