When applying for law school, you'll need to sit for the Law School Admission Test. Traditionally, pen and paper has been used but it's going digital and the council behind the LSAT has selected the Surface Go as the official tablet for deployment. This is after it tested a whole range of competitors products, including Apple's iPad.

As reported by The Verge, the move to digital from pen and paper means administrators who oversee the test will need to be retained with the Surface Go. It's not known whether this move will raise or lower the price of admission.

It's planned the LSAT will go digital by July 2019. The writing part of the LSAT will be separate from the digital multi-choice sections. Both parties involved have failed to reveal just how many Surface Go tablets will be part of the deal, nor how much the deal is worth.
