Law School Admission Test (LSAT)
The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is not offered at Gallaudet University.
In order to be accredited by the American Bar Association, law schools must require that applicants submit LSAT scores. In the highly competitive arena of law school admissions, an average score would be enough to eliminate an otherwise qualified candidate.
The LSAT is a half-day standardized test. It consists of five 35-minute sections of multiple-choice questions. These include one Reading comprehension section, one Analytical Reasoning section, two Logical Reasoning sections, and a variable section containing additional questions that do not contribute to your score but are used to pretest new test questions. A 30-minute writing sample is not scored, but a copy is sent to each law school to which the LSAT score is reported. Each law school determines how it will use the writing sample.
LSAT scoring is on a scale of 120 to 180, and is based on the number of questions answered correctly. There is no penalty for guessing.
