I searched far and wide for any LSAT eligibility requirements. Well, I did do a google search, and read the official LSAC website for about 2 minutes, but that’s basically the same thing. My onerous search brought me to a single conclusion: there aren’t any “requirements.” It’s pretty simple.
Here’s the thing, the LSAC isn’t going to discourage prospective law students from taking an exam. That is how they make their money. The more people that sign up and pay for the exam … well, I suppose you get the point.
However, there are some things you’ll want to consider before you take this exam, and I suppose I would “loosely” call them requirements.
You need to be able to read and write English
The only exception to this rule is if you happen to want to go to law school in Puerto Rico. Outside of that territory, the Spanish LSAT will not get sent anywhere else. That means you’re going to need to, at a minimum, be competent at reading and writing in English, since that’s the language the LSAT is offered.
Also, don’t forget about the written section on the LSAT.
The test is only good for law school
It’s called the “Law School Admissions Test” for a reason. No other graduate school programs will take it. So, if you’re looking at graduate programs, be sure you intend to apply to law school. Otherwise, it will just be a waste of your time and money.
You need access to funds
This goes without saying, but so does the rest of this article. If you’ve got a valid credit card then you’re in! It’s as easy as that.
So, if you’re worried about not meeting LSAT eligibility requirements to register, don’t be. You just need to make up your mind, start studying, and then take that test. There’s nothing else to it.
