Before we get into the details of the March LSAT, here is one bit of information you definitely need to have handy: the March 2022 LSAT will be the March remote LSAT. In fact, all LSATs through June 2022 will be given remotely! So what does this mean for you?
Let’s take a look at all the important dates you need to know for the March 2022 LSAT, along with our top tips for preparing for this test.
COVID-19 and the Remote LSAT
As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, LSAC put the LSAT-Flex, a remote, online exam, into place in 2020. In 2021, this shifted to become the remote LSAT. They’ve since announced that they’ll be giving all exams through June 2022 in this format, so if you need to take the LSAT in 2021 or early 2022, it’s your only bet. However, practicing in an online format can help you get familiar and comfortable with the remote nature of the exam!
March LSAT Dates
The March remote LSAT will be held the week of March 12, 2022. LSAC hasn’t yet given out specific dates; check back for more scheduling details as they become available!
March 2022 Remote LSAT Deadlines
- Wednesday, January 26, 2022 – This is the deadline for both March LSAT registration and for accommodation requests (if you have a disability).
Keep in mind that there’s limited slots for each remote LSAT administration. The earlier you register, the better chance you have of getting the slot that best suits you!

LSAT Score Preview Deadlines
Recently, the LSAC has provided test-takers with a new service: the optional Score Preview option. If you’re a first-time test-taker, you can see your LSAT score. This means you can decide if you want to keep it on your LSAC transcript, where law schools will eventually see it.
The price for this service depends on when you sign up for it:
- Friday, March 11, 2022 – Deadline to purchase LSAC’s Score Preview for $45
- Wednesday, March 23, 2022 – Deadline to purchase LSAC’s Score Preview for $75
*If you are a first-time test taker with an approved LSAT fee waiver, you can sign up for Score Preview free of charge.
March 2022 LSAT Score Release Dates
LSAC hasn’t yet given out the score release dates for the March 2022 LSAT. We’ll publish them just as soon as they do!
Everyone gets their scores back via their LSAC accounts, and it usually takes around three weeks. While that’s not very long, at least compared to the bar exam, the wait can be pretty brutal.
Keep in mind that you will need to complete your LSAT writing sample before you can receive your scores! This is a relatively new change, so plan ahead for it.
The March LSAT will be here faster than you think! You should register early to make sure you get the slot that you want. Now is the time to set out your study plan and get ready to crush the LSAT!
