Scores to Aim For
Your total LSAT score can range from 120 to 180. Your score report will also include a percentage showing where you rank in comparison with others who took the test during the previous 3 years.
What if you want a higher score?
Taking the test again is a good idea if you didn't feel well on test day or were distracted. Research shows that scores usually improve slightly for those who take the test a second time. However, your score may also drop. And law schools must see all of your scores, not just your highest.
