As of Sept. 21, the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) will be administered digitally. The first opportunity to take the computerized exam is on Oct. 28. According to a press release from Kaplan Test Prep, an organization that specializes in higher education test preparation, a tablet and stylus will replace the traditional pencil-and-paper format.
A recent survey conducted by Kaplan showed that the percentage of college admissions officers who agreed to do so is higher than ever before at 31 percent. Stony Brook University claims it would be impossible to look into applicants’ social media due to the large amount of applications they receive.
