Taking the June 2016 LSAT? What You Need to Know

If you’ve been thinking about taking the June 2016 LSAT, now is the time to start taking that decision seriously. Registration deadlines are only about a month away, and it’s always a good idea to know whether you’ll be prepared for the exam before paying the money to register. So, here are the dates you need to know and how to determine whether registering for the June 2016 LSAT is right for you.


Dates and Deadlines


It’s worth pointing out that registration deadlines represent the last day on which you can register for the test, but this does not mean that you should wait that long to do so. The earlier you register, the better your chances of finding a test center close to you.

  • Wednesday, April 13: Registration for nonpublished test centers
    (This is for those of you who live more than 100 miles from a test center and cannot travel to one.)
  • Wednesday, April 20: Regular registration deadline for all published test centers
  • Wednesday, April 27: Late registration deadline (for published test centers only)

What to do before you register

  1. Take a practice test!
    Purchase a copy of 10 Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests Volume V and take one of its real LSATs from a recent year. Make sure to find a quiet place like a library or classroom to take the practice test, do the whole thing in one sitting (including the writing sample), and time yourself strictly. For more on this, read How to take an LSAT Practice Test.

  3. Score your practice test
    Use the answer keys and conversion tables at the back of each test in your book to figure out what your score would be. More importantly, look at how many questions you missed in each section and determine where you need the most work.

  5. Set Goals
    Read Setting LSAT Prep Goals for help on how to determine a healthy goal for your
    LSAT prep. Equally as important, start researching schools and determining the type of
    score you’ll likely need to be competitive at the schools that most interest you.
    Remember, you don’t have to score at or above a school’s 75th percentile to be
    competitive. Aim for something in the school’s middle 50% if it’s a reach, and something
    in the upper half to third if it’s your backup.

  7. Build a study plan
    The final step is estimating how long it will take you to get from your current score to
    your goal. For most people, that’s somewhere in the range of 2-6 months. That means
    the June 2016 LSAT is already going to put you on a tight schedule
    . If you’ve set
    moderate goals for yourself and you’re looking to increase your score by less than 10
    points, you’re probably in great shape. However, if you’re trying to improve by more than
    10 points in two months, you may have a real challenge ahead of you. Consider
    postponing to the September 2016 LSAT and giving yourself a few more months to
