December 2010 LSAT Scores Released

December LSAT scores are out.

Pause here for intense emotion, followed by ferraro rocher consumption (don’t act like you haven’t tried its sweet, sweet combination of nougat and chocolate crispies). After the tumult of receiving your LSAT score has subsided, it’s time to turn your attention to the question of a most urgent nature. Namely, how difficult was the curve for the December 2010 LSAT?

In early December, our very own Blueprint LSAT founder Matt Riley made some predictions about the December 2010 curve. The upshot? That it would easier than winning a limbo showdown with Yao Ming. Since Yao Ming is 7’6”, that’s pretty darn easy.

Waiting on the December 2010 LSAT Score Release

For those of you who took the December LSAT, we feel your pain. It has been 25 full days since you filled in that last Scantron bubble, gave everyone a little sample of your writing, and then likely obsessed over that one Logical Reasoning question that could have been (D) instead of (C). We get it, you would really, really like to get those applications in, and you are starting to wonder why this is taking so long.

Suffering from Post December 2010 LSAT Depression?

The signs are all around us. You’ve seen them: listless bodies walking blankly around town at dusk, a preponderance of frighteningly pale and sickly young people lurking about your neighborhood bars and restaurants, and an ever increasing number of confused individuals emerging from the shadows, devoid of people skills and all-around cleanliness. No, this is not a casting call for the next George Romero zombie flick, nor is it at all related to the ubiquitous and thoroughly tired vampire fad. My friends, what we’re dealing with is a massive outbreak of PLWD: Post LSAT Withdrawal Disorder.

December 2010 LSAT Instant Recap

Howdy all. Another LSAT is in the books and, according to our East Coast correspondents, games were once again a doozy, with one involving stained glass windows that was a particular pain. Apparently, the sheer length of the games made it difficult to have room to diagram and write down the rules, which echoes the dreaded June 2009 games section.

We’re also hearing that there were some test center closures in the East, but we’re waiting on official word. Did any of you have a closed test center? What were your reactions to the test? Let us know in the comments thread or on the discussion board.

Don’t Be Flaccid at the Critical Time: How to Avoid LSAT Day Nerves

We’ve all received them – the emails for Viagra and Cialis that pervade our inboxes despite the strictest of spam filters. Today I was scanning my incoming mail and saw the following subject line in large, bold letters:

DON’T BE FLACCID AT THE CRITICAL TIME

I was caught so off guard (most of my email subject headers consist of snippets like “quick question” or “birthday emergency – send cake recipe!) that I actually yelped. Like a bunny tripping a snare, the Viagra ad caught me unaware and unprepared.

Are You Running from the December 2010 LSAT?

“Are you scared, or are you really just not ready?” Ladies and gentlemen, this post is about your high school prom night. Wait a second. No…No that’s not right at all. This post is about the LSAT. Now that I am back on track, it’s time for you to ask yourself the aforementioned question, but this time under vastly different circumstances. If you read this blog or you are in a Blueprint class, I know that you have received plenty of information and advice, so I will keep this as straightforward as possible. This post is dedicated to those of you who are still unsure about whether or not to show up on Saturday. Are you going to take an absence and refresh your LSAT gameplan, or are you going to sharpen up those #2 pencils, polish off that government issued I.D., find the most nutritious damned granola bar on the market, and own this exam.

December 2010 LSAT: What to do if…

I get a lot of questions on the blueprint twitter, the discussion board, or on this here blog concerning contingencies. What do I do if I I’m not ready come test day? What do I do if I get hit by a truck on the way to the test center? What do I do if I contract a venereal disease?

These are all important questions, so let’s tackle them one by one.

1. What do I do if I’m not ready on Saturday? Easy answer: don’t take the test.

Do’s and Don’ts for the December 2010 LSAT

The LSAT is on Saturday.  Your LSAT study is quickly coming to an end.  No longer are we thinking in terms of dates, but days of the week.  Exciting.  Before you know it you’ll be done with this test, and on the road to law school.  But this week will naturally be pretty stressful.  So here are some dos and don’ts to keep in mind as you try not to lose your mind.

DO get into a routine.  Wake up and go to sleep at the same time every day this week (or as much as you possibly can).  Take your tests in the morning.  Eat a lot of leafy greens to keep yourself regular.  Nobody wants an anxious gopher during logic games.

Top Six Ways to Keep Yourself Calm Before the December 2010 LSAT

Around about 12:00 this morning, the date changed from November 30th to December 1st. Strictly speaking, there was no big change, no tidal shift rocking our respective worlds. Many of you kept sleeping, some of you kept drinking, and others of you kept studying.

But this shuffling of calendar pages opened significant wounds in the psyches of LSAT students. In the halcyon days of November, you could all rest easy and claim that you still had a month until the exam, that there was little to worry about. Perhaps it has something to do with our inability to subtract, or our lack of awareness about how many days are in each month.

Advice for the December 2010 LSAT

With all the hullabaloo about the October LSAT that came about a week and a half ago, we’ve perhaps neglected to talk about its more wintery cousin, the December LSAT. Right now, the LSAT elves are assembling the questions in their workshop with extra care and love and psychometrics.  Because come December 11th, we’ll not only be celebrating Jon Brion’s birthday, but we’ll be taking the LSAT as well.  So let’s dive into the stuff that you mustn’t neglect.

Sign up – Right now.  We mention this before every test, but it bears repeating.  Testing centers fill up rapidly, and you should thus reserve your seat immediately.  If you wait too long you may end up having to take the test really far away, and it’s even possible that all the centers could fill up.  Even if you’re not certain that you’ll be taking the December administration of the LSAT, sign up anyway.  You can always pull out three weeks prior with a partial refund and a clean record.
