Logic games, including those on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT), are a nightmare for many people. Nothing new there. But what is new is that the LSAT soon will not include logic games.
The inclusion of logic games on the LSAT has been challenged by students with disabilities, and, in response, the Law School Admission Council, which administers the LSAT, has decided to cut its losses and get rid of logic games.
That decision creates a choice for pre-law students and others anticipating law school application. For those who decide to take the LSAT and are OK with logic games, they still have an opportunity to take the traditional format, which includes logic games, until the end of the 2023-2024 test cycle. And for those who are not OK with logic games, waiting until after August 2024 is for you.
And for all of those who took the LSAT in the past and were not OK with logic games, there is no remedy for you! That includes me. Logic games nearly made me break out in hives on the LSAT, but I was perfectly fine with logical reasoning in law school. Go figure.

And you also need to remember that the LSAT is not the only show in town. Some law schools now accept other proficiency and predictive tests in lieu of the LSAT. It is important for all applicants to do research long before law school application deadlines and in time to apply for the test of choice.
