What is the LSAT?

What is a good LSAT Score?
Three to four weeks after taking LSAT, you will receive a score ranging from 120-180. The average LSAT score is around 150 and if an applicant is satisfied with acceptance to any accredited law school, a score around average is sufficient. However, if an individual wants to enroll in a selective J.D. program that ranks among the top 10 or top 25 in the 2019 U.S. News Best Law Schools rankings, one should aim for a score of 160 or higher. For example, at Harvard University (MA), the median LSAT score for full-time students entering in fall 2019 was 173. This is an extremely high score that allows entrance into an extremely selective school, so there’s no need to fret if your LSAT score isn’t quite that high.
At the end of the day, LSAT is a vital first step towards a legal career, so make sure to take the time to adequately prepare for it and take it seriously. Best of luck!
