Frequently Asked Questions/ FAQs
How long does it take to prep for the LSAT?
We recommend that most students spend between 150 to 300 hours studying for the LSAT, which is about 20-25 hours per week over a two-to- or three-month period. If you are looking to make a dramatic score increase or cannot commit to 20+ hours of study per week, you may need more time to study. The best way to determine how many hours of LSAT prep you need is to take a free LSAT practice test. Use this information as a baseline to inform your LSAT study schedule. Review your detailed score analysis to see where your strengths and weaknesses lie and how much you need to improve to reach your target score.
What is the best way to prepare for the LSAT?
The best way to prepare for the LSAT is to follow an LSAT study guide. This will keep you organized and help you stay on track as you study. There are many different study strategies for the LSAT, but you’ll need to give yourself enough time to practice in order to see a significant increase in your score. Whether you’re taking an LSAT prep course, working with an LSAT tutor, or studying for the LSAT independently, following a study guide will help you stay focused and ensure you don’t miss any important test-taking skills. Remember, the LSAT is unlike any other exam you’ve taken in your academic career; it measures your skills rather than content knowledge, so last-minute LSAT prep is unlikely to help you succeed.
Is it hard to pass the LSAT?
The LSAT is known to be a difficult exam which is why LSAT prep is so critical. There is no passing or failing on the LSAT. The average LSAT score is approximately 152. If you’re looking to get into a top law school, your score should be over 170. Raising your LSAT score by 10 points can make a huge difference on law school admissions, which weigh your LSAT score more than your undergrad GPA. Use our LSAT score predictor to get a rough estimate of the score you might receive if you took the test today.
How much does the LSAT cost?
The fee for taking the LSAT is $200, which can be a lot of money to spend on an exam, especially if you take it more than once. However, some applicants may qualify for an LSAT fee waiver from the Law School Admission Council (LSAC), the makers of the LSAT. Fee waivers are only available for those who cannot afford to pay for the LSAT. According to LSAC, you must demonstrate extreme need to qualify for the fee waiver and meet several other requirements. Learn more and apply for an LSAT fee waiver via your LSAC account.

What is a good LSAT score?
A good LSAT score is generally considered to be 160 or above. A scaled score of 159-163 is earned by the top 25% of LSAT takers. When considering your LSAT score goal, look at the average scores at the schools to which you’re applying. An LSAT score in the 160 range may not be high enough to get you into a top law school, such as Harvard or Yale University. Applicants should aim for a score of 170 or higher when applying to top law schools.
