Taking the Law School Admissions Test? First Pick Your Sexual Orientation

Jul 3, 2018 by

Academic test for aspiring lawyers now offers a choice of 12 identifications — including ‘gender fluid’ and ‘unsure’

by Kyle Becker –

The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is offering a new set of gender identification options for applicants.

Many, many options, that is.

The new options include: agender, androgyne, demigender, gender queer or gender fluid, man, transgender man, non-transgender man, questioning or unsure, woman, transgender woman, non-transgender woman, and even “additional gender category (please specify).”

The LSAT changes were reported in The College Fix, by legal analyst Jonathan Turley, and by others — and Twitter users noted the gender options.

The Law School Admissions Council, publisher of the LSAT, offers an online portal with gender options that vary slightly from those listed above.

It lists nine gender options, rather than 11, according to a Check Your Fact report.

LSAC, the publisher of the LSAT, also offers a video called “Being Transgender in Law School.”

It features interviews with a number of LGBTQ students to explain their perspectives on what it means to be transgender in law school.
