LSAT follows GMAT Goes Digital

LSAT follows GMAT Goes Digital

Suspiciously soon after the GMAT (and GRE) were brought into the law school admissions test circle of trust, the LSAT, reigning emperor of law school entrance exams, is adding convenience features for test takers. July 2019 will usher in the era of digital LSAT.I didn’t think I’d see the day that these law mummies would let in some daylight but it’s a new world so let’s all embrace these positive changes:

  1. The LSAT is going digital. No more pen and paper. In fact, they’ve leapfrogged GMAT and GRE and will be offering the test not on a desktop computer but on a tablet. They hired a really fancy marketing guru and came up with a new name for the test or at least the transition: Digital LSAT!
  2. We’re getting more LSAT administrations. It’s not like the GMAT or GRE, offered every day, but LSAT is ramping up from 6 to 9 per year.
  3. Test takers will be able to preview scores before cancelling them.
  4. The essay is “take home”. You can complete it at your own pace within a year of taking the exam.

Here are some screen-grabs from the new computer LSAT:
