Investigating Some Thanksgiving, LSAT Coincidences

Hey guys, Thanksgiving is a week away! The LSAT is two weeks and two days away! Coincidence? Maybe not. When you think about it, there’s a lot of similarities between the LSAT and Thanksgiving. According to Wikipedia, Thanksgiving, celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November, has officially been an annual tradition in the United States since 1863, when during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of thanksgiving to be celebrated, while The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is a half-day standardized test administered four times each year at designated testing centers throughout the world. But the similarities don’t end there!

The first LSAT was given in 1948. In 1941, Thanksgiving was set as falling on the fourth Thursday in November.

5 Things that Must Happen in Your Last Month of LSAT Study

Today is November 3, exactly one month from the December 2011 LSAT. To some of you, this realization may strike fear in your hearts (or at least anxiety in your stomachs) – it’s only 30 days and there’s so much LSAT study to do! To others, it may be more time than you’d desire, at least those who fondly remember having time for a social life before all this LSAT study. Actually, a month happens to be the perfect amount of time, but only if you’re going about your LSAT study properly. To make sure you are ready to rock it next month, here are the top five things you must do as part of your LSAT study and preparation over the next 30 days:

1) Memorize every common flaw. Memorizing and understanding flaws is the single most helpful thing you can add to your LSAT study to improve your score (at least in LR).

Trick or Treat, There’s an LSAT Registration Deadline to Beat

Today is the day! No, it’s not the day of the test. And it’s not the test change deadline, either (that’s not for another week and a half). But today is the registration deadline. If you’re not signed up for the December LSAT, do sow now. No really, NOW.

Today is something of a soft deadline, because for the December LSAT you can do a “late registration” online until November 11. But you should still sign up now. Why? Well, first of all, you save some money. If you sign up after today, you’ll have to pay an extra $68. Which isn’t the end of the world, but why pay it if you don’t have to? With that money you could live like a king at the dollar store.

If you’re unsure as to whether you’ll be ready for the December LSAT, sign up anyway.

Logical Reasonings / 10.20.11

A) This has to be the most fascinating LSAT-related Craigslist ad in the history of the internet. Someone in Laguna Beach is willing to pay $10,000 (ten grand!) for a full-time tutor for the December LSAT. His goal is a 160. This person’s tried courses and books, but apparently a Rocky-style montage under the guidance of a really smart Mick is the only option. Craigslist.

B) Hey, Blueprint students in Austin. Here are three local examples of what you can do with that impending law degree. The Daily Texan.

C) Remember eBay? Apparently you bid on an hour of conversation with a lawyer on there now. Above the Law.

D) Not sure if you heard or not, but Muammar Gadaffi is dead. What are the legal ramifications? Guardian.

E) Two guaranteed things you are going to say when you visit this website: 1) “Oh my god, who would buy that?” and 2) “Oh my god, I want to buy that.” This Is Why I’m Broke.

The December 2011 LSAT Prep is Underway

As thousands of students eagerly await their scores from this past weekend, other lucky students are just starting their journey into the LSAT — the December 2011 LSAT, to be exact.

For many of you, taking practice exam 1 last weekend was your first exposure to the LSAT. And chances are, you’re not happy with your score. This is good. Having just enrolled in a prep course, it would be aggravating (to say the least) if you could already score a 175. More importantly, this dissatisfaction can be used to great effect — so channel it. Use it as a motivation to study, as a motivation to attend class, and as a motivation to sacrifice Tuesday Night Drinking Club (at least until December).

What you don’t want, though, is to be discouraged. If your first score is dramatically lower than your desired score, it’s easy to despair.
