Consider whether your first LSAT score is within your practice range. If you were consistently obtaining timed practice scores above your actual test score, it may be worth trying again. Data shows that scores for repeat test takers often rise slightly, but it is important to understand that your score could drop. Circumstances such as illness, anxiety, or other personal circumstances can adversely affect LSAT performance. NEW IN 2006: although law schools receive a report containing all LSAT scores, they are required to report only the highest score to the American Bar Association.
Note: LSAC does not automatically inform law schools of a candidate’s registration for a retest. It is your responsibility to inform law schools directly if you register for additional tests.
