What to Do the Day Before the LSAT

Congrats! If you’re a February 2018 LSAT taker, you’ve made it to the finish line of your LSAT prep.

Now you’re probably wondering, what should I do in these final 24 hours before my exam? Here are some tips for what to do, and what not to do, on your very last day before the LSAT.

February can be a month of high stress and seemingly endless waiting. Whether you are counting down the days until the February LSAT, or waiting for some good news on your law school applications.

Limiting Stress and Test-Day Frustrations

Stress is a part of life, but it can be especially difficult to manage on the eve of a life-changing test like the LSAT. If you are preparing for the February exam, you are acutely aware of the way a small point difference on the LSAT can dramatically impact your school and career prospects, as well as your debt burden for years to come. But managing your stress and testing frustrations are an essential part of performing well on the exam, and much more importantly, in supporting your long-term mental health.

Identifying Cause and Effect Relationships

Cause and effect relationships were probably one of the argument structures that you were most comfortable with before starting your LSAT prep. You see A happen…A is followed be B…so you know that A caused B.

But as much as I hate to shatter this appealingly simple worldview, you’re going to find with the LSAT that cause and effect relationships usually make for weak arguments.

Balancing Your LSAT Prep Over the Holidays

A holiday break can pull your LSAT studies in two directions. On the one hand, you will probably have more free time than usual between Christmas Eve and New Year’s. And on the other, this is likely your first real break since Thanksgiving, and studying will be the last thing you want to do with your time.

Identifying Flaws in Your Twitter Feed: A New Frontier in LSAT Preparation

Like your average Millennial, it’s hard for me to imagine a world without the entertainment and distraction of Twitter. After all, Twitter is a virtual library of prime LSAT-worthy argumentation just waiting to be deconstructed. Sure, there are the few absolutely faultless demi-gods of Twitter (I’m looking at you Ryan Reynolds), but there is also a noticeable amount of argumentation on Twitter that is rife with fallacious reasoning indistinguishable from the stimulus of your standard Flaw question.
