We are hosting the Law School Admission Council’s Digital LSAT at our Testing Center in Glen Rose, Texas on Monday, June 8, 2020 starting at 12:30 PM CST. This new, tablet-based testing format has great features such as a timer with a five-minute warning, highlighting, and flagging to keep track of questions that a test taker may want to revisit in a section. The tablets are provided to test takers at the Test Center the afternoon of the exam. Please arrive at the Testing Center no more than 30 minutes before the exam is scheduled to begin. There is no need to arrive any earlier than 30 minutes before the exam start time as you will not be able to enter the building until 12:00 PM (noon). The exam will take a little over 4 and a half hours to complete, so please be prepared to be at the Testing Center until around 4:30 PM. For directions to the Testing Center, please visit our About Us page. ALL your personal belongings must be in a clear, gallon size Ziploc style baggie which will be kept under your chair for the duration of the exam. Absolutely NO cell phones or electronic devices are allowed inside the Testing Center for any reason. Please make sure to bring a valid, photo identification to the Testing Center on the day of your exam. If your Texas Driver’s License is expired, please click here to renew it now (bring in your renewal receipt and expired license of no more than 30 days expired).
Digital LSAT Test Format
The Digital LSAT consists of five 35-minute sections of multiple choice questions. Four of the five sections contribute to your score. These include one reading comprehension, one analytical reasoning, and two logical reasoning sections.
The unscored section, usually referred to as the variable section, is used to pretest new questions or evaluate new test forms. The placement of this section varies, and you won’t know which section is unscored until you receive your score report.
The Digital LSAT also includes a 35-minute, unscored writing sample, not administered at the Testing Center. The writing prompt presents a decision problem, and you are asked to choose between two positions or courses of action, and defend your choice. There is no “right” or “wrong” position; the writing sample lets you demonstrate your argumentative writing skills. Law schools are looking at the reasoning, clarity, organization, language usage, and writing mechanics you display in your sample. Copies of your writing sample are sent to all schools to which you apply. You will complete this writing sample online using your own computer on a day other than the official test date. The writing sample will be administered separately from the rest of the Digital LSAT exam, not at the Testing Center. Learn more at LSAT Writing FAQs.
