The Dartmouth Law Journal will be partnering with test preparation firm TestMasters to hold a free mock Law School Admission Test this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Carson L01, which holds about 50 students. TestMasters instructor Maya Kieffer will oversee the exam and review some of the test’s more difficult questions after the examination has concluded.

Those who attend the session will also receive week-long access to TestMasters’ Online Resource Center, where they will be able to access their test scores, study detailed explanations of the answers and receive one-on-one assistance from TestMasters instructors.

Jacob Greenberg ’17, DLJ co-editor-in-chief, said he expects the test room to be at maximum capacity.

Although the DLJ was founded in the winter of 2003, Greenberg said this is the publication’s first time providing additional services for campus. Greenberg and his co-editor Alexander Abate ’17 said they proposed holding the mock LSAT to help foster a pre-law community. Dartmouth currently does not have a traditional pre-law program.

The current cost of taking an official LSAT is around $180. For students pursuing additional preparation, the cost of courses from popular sources like Kaplan Test Prep and Princeton Review can range from $799 to over $2,599. TestMaster’s online LSAT course costs $950.

The DLJ will continue to host a mock LSAT every term. Next Tuesday, the DLJ will also host Center for Professional Development associate director Leslie Kingsley, who will discuss the law school application process and hold a brief question and answer session.
