Do I have to study for the February LSAT over Christmas break?

Yes. Glad we got that out of the way. Now we can talk about how to do that without ruining the season. Here’s one quick and easy idea.

Make flashcards.

Yes, there is no technology whatsoever involved here, but it’s convenient and amazingly portable. Wanna study for thirty minutes while your SO shops it out? Then you can chill when you get home rather than worry.

Cancel My December LSAT Score? Keep It? Help!

The deadline to cancel your December LSAT score is this Friday. That’s coming up, so let’s talk about what it means and how to make the decision.

You can cancel your LSAT score through by going to the LSAT Status page of your LSAC account and following the instructions there. Those words feel weird to type — you’d be shocked at how recently canceling required a fax or overnight-mailed letter.

The Perfect Snack for The December 2016 LSAT

We all know the most important part of the LSAT is your test day snack. It almost goes without saying. This post is going to cover the best, and worst, snack day options. Believe me, not all snacks are created equal — this is serious business.

First, let’s talk about some snacks that you should definitely not bring to the LSAT. I would recommend against bringing Red Bull, Five Hour Energy, or any other energy drink unless you are very used to taking practice tests with the jolt of liquid courage such beverages provide.

Oh crap. It’s September. I’m not ready.

Maybe you’ve been prepping for the September LSAT but your practice test scores are well below where you’d like them to be. Maybe you intended to take the September test, but time got away from you, and suddenly the registration deadline was long gone. Maybe you were planning on taking the December LSAT all along. Either way, fear not – taking the December LSAT is not the disadvantage many 0Ls seem to think it is.

The LSAT Writing Sample

When I took the LSAT back in nineteen-dickety-two (actually, 2006), it consisted of five multiple choice sections of thirty-five minutes apiece: one section of Reading Comprehension, one of Logic Games, two of Logical Reasoning, and one Experimental section that constituted an extra unscored section of any one of the three section types. I and most of my LSAT contemporaries felt brutalized by each one of those five sections on test day, and we were glad when it was over.
