“This is an opportunity for students preparing to take the LSAT to do so in a simulated environment, which in my opinion has a variety of benefits,” says Multicultural Affairs Officer Troy Riddle of plans to host practice LSAT
exams on Saturday, September 17th and Saturday, November 12th. “It will help to alleviate some of the anxiety often felt on the actual test date.”
The practice exams will be held at 9:00 a.m. on both of Widener Law’s campuses with check in beginning at 8:30 a.m. The room assignment will be given at check in, which will take place inside the front door of the Main Law Building at the Delaware campus and in front of the Moot Courtroom at the Harrisburg campus.
“So many prospective applicants tell me each year they are very nervous about taking the LSAT because they know what an important component it is of their law school applications. This fear often affects their ability to perform their best on the exam,” says Harrisburg Director of Admissions Eric Kniskern. “In taking a practice test under similar testing conditions, we hope to take some of this fear of the unknown away from the test so that their true abilities can shine.”
“After scoring their exams, students will have an idea of the areas in which they need to improve before the actual test. Sometimes a few points in one area can make all the difference in the final score because there's no penalty for wrong answers. The test is solely based on the number of correct answers,” adds Riddle.
