The Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) is right up next to the MCAT as far as difficulty and complexity. It contains 5 sections, Reading Comprehension, Analytical Reasoning, two logical reasoning sections, and a final test section.
You can score between 120-180 on the exam, with most students falling in the 150-155 range. The chart on the right shows the average LSAT score that schools accepted for the last 5 years. Currently, the average acceptance LSAT score has been on a slight decline in recent years. This means it is easier to get into law school, than say in 2012, when the average score was 156.
