From the Advisor: 

Many of you have noted that internships, student groups, and other activities that might otherwise fill your time and animate your resumes have slowed down or come to a halt. Thus, people have been curious about opportunities to remain active and gain skills during this time of quarantine. If you’re one of these folks, I recommend considering virtual volunteer (new window) opportunities with non-profit organizations and political campaigns, both of which remain active. There are several (new window) places to get started (new window) looking for virtual non-profit opportunities, and visit a campaign’s website for information on such opportunities in the political arena. Just because your physical lives have become a little less dynamic doesn’t mean your extracurricular and professional lives have to as well.  

Also, with regard to the April 2020 LSAT, LSAC has announced a take-home LSAT administration (LSAT-Flex) that will take place in the second half of May. Those registered for the April 2020 LSAT will be automatically registered for LSAT-Flex, since the April exam has been cancelled. If you do not wish to take part in LSAT-Flex, you may, alternatively, register for any other LSAT administration date without incurring a test date change fee. The exact date of LSAT-Flex and instructions will be released no later than April 17.
