When Are LSAT Scores Released?

Knowing your LSAT score release date is crucial to selecting the right LSAT test date. You want to be sure you’ll have your scores in hand in time to send them to your dream school (and your safety schools). So, let’s take a look at when you can expect to get your scores back.

LSAT score release dates

The Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) sends scores out via email about four weeks after the exam and via mail about five weeks after the test. While the LSAC has released LSAT test dates as far in advance as April 2020, the official score release dates have only been released through the January 2020 exam.

So, if you’re taking the June, July, September, or October 2019 exams, you can find out exactly when to expect your LSAT scores. Alternately, if you’re taking a later exam, you can estimate that your scores will be released about a month after the exam.

While LSAT scores have been mailed to test takers in the past, starting with the September 2019 LSAT, all scores will be emailed, so watch your inboxes!

As you can see, the LSAC releases scores a little earlier by email than by mail, so be sure to set up your online LSAC account if you’d like to get your LSAT scores earlier! (And who doesn’t want that?)

When can I cancel my LSAT score?

You only have six days after the exam to cancel your LSAT score. If you are sure that your performance on the LSAT was not what it could have been—say you left an entire section blank or left after the break—then, and only then, should you consider cancelling your score. If not, you should keep your score and see how you did.

Remember that you can always retest, so don’t let a few post-test jitters keep you from reaping the rewards of all of your hard work. I promise, you probably did better than you think you did.

What do I do while waiting for LSAT scores to be released?

While you’re waiting for your LSAT scores release date, take some time to recharge and then put the finishing touches on your law school applications. Let’s look at four ways you can occupy your mind and beef up your application between now and the LSAT score release date.

    1. Rest. First and foremost, you should take some time to relax and recharge after all of your months of studying. Take a moment to celebrate all of the work you’ve done (because there’s a lot more to come)!

    2. Finish your applications. Now’s the perfect time to complete all of your outstanding work on your applications. Most importantly, spend some time developing your personal statement—it’s critical to helping you stand out as a law school applicant.

    3. Contact your references. Reach out now, if you haven’t already, to those people who will be writing your recommendation letters. You want to be sure they have plenty of time to write you solid, well-thought letters, so don’t wait to the last minute when their plates may be too full.

    4. Order transcripts. Be sure to order all your relevant transcripts for your undergraduate work and any other graduate work you’ve completed.

And once you’re done with all of these steps (or at least have made progress on them!), your scores will be in your inbox or arriving soon!
