Relax Today if You’re Taking the December LSAT Tomorrow

‘Twas the night before the LSAT, and all through Blueprint HQ
We’ve crossed all of our appendages, wishing good luck to you!

… And that’s why I’m not a poet. But seriously, in case you didn’t know, the December LSAT is tomorrow — at least for those not buried under a sheet of ice.

For those of you who are facing the beast tomorrow, you should be taking today off from studying. You should assemble all of the materials you’ll need for the test, and if you haven’t already done so, you should also take a test drive to your December LSAT testing center to make sure that there won’t be any unexpected problems.

Several December LSAT Testing Centers Closed Due to Storm

Good news to whichever December LSAT test-takers has been singing “Let It Snow” in hopes of his or her exam being postponed.

It worked.

LSAC announced today that 15 December LSAT testing centers in five states will be closed tomorrow for the exam. That’s of 10:30 a.m. PST, though, so if you are in an area that has been or will be hit with snow, be sure to refresh this LSAC page throughout the day.

If your December LSAT testing center does get shut down, LSAC will send you an email to confirm. LSAC also says it will email each December LSAT test-taker with options for making up the exam by the end of next week.

This isn’t even the first time this year that LSAC has had to deal with inclement weather causing LSAT testing center closures.

December LSAT Test Day: Do You Know What to Bring?

The December LSAT is two days away. You’ve come a long way to get this far, but there are few more things you need to know for Saturday.

What You Need to Bring on December LSAT Test Day

To get into your December LSAT test center you will need to bring the following items:

• December LSAT admission ticket with passport-style photo attached
• Photo identification
• One gallon clear plastic Ziploc bag

LSAC recommends that you wait until the night before the LSAT to print out your admissions ticket, since they may make some last-minute changes.

Matt Shinners’s 2013 December LSAT Predictions

I’m just now recovering from my turkey-induced coma (and Wild Turkey-induced hangover), and that can only mean one thing: It’s time to make some 2013 December LSAT predictions!

Let’s peek inside the closet to see what crazy presents the LSAT is hiding for this holiday season.

2013 December LSAT Prediction I: Logic Games

The October 2013 LSAT featured a killer game (movie theater scheduling) and three standard games. This seems to be an emerging trend for the LSAT – moderately difficult games, with a really hard one thrown in.

Make the Most of Your Final Days Before the December LSAT

It’s December 3, your Thanksgiving food coma has barely worn off, and you’re staring at the December LSAT coming up this Saturday. It’s your last week of LSAT prep before the December LSAT, so it’s important that you make the most of it.

By now, you should have finished covering all the kinds of questions you’ll see on the LSAT. Whether it’s your first time taking the real thing, or you’re an LSAT veteran, you should devote this week to timed practice: full LSAT practice tests and full timed sections. Of course, review them carefully. And if anything comes up that you need to review, do a little extra practice.

But don’t overdo it. If you’re a sleep-deprived wreck on December LSAT test day, you’ll erase any benefit you might have gained from studying like crazy this week.

LSAT Prep Tips for Thanksgiving (and Thanksgivukkah) Break

Today marks both Thanksgiving eve and the beginning of Hanukkah. Not only is this a momentous and rare occurrence, it also ensures that any member of the Jewish faith will add at least an inch to his/her waistline before the beginning of December. While this all sounds wonderful in theory, it’s an eight-day stretch fraught with peril for the Jewish LSAT student, let alone those who have only Thanksgiving (and annoying relatives, and possibly final exams) to deal with.

It would take an LSAT student of extraordinary discipline to resist the delights of the season. The food and beverage bonanza that is Thanksgiving can scarcely be ignored, and it ought to be enjoyed. Just take care not to over-enjoy.

I took the December LSAT in my time and I can remember studying over the Thanksgiving holiday.

5 Keys to Not Being a Turkey on December LSAT Test Day

Hank, our LSAT blog editor-at-large, gave me the topic of “5 Keys to Not Being a Turkey on December LSAT Test Day.” There’s no way I’m giving him a pass and coming up with something that isn’t as cheesy (plus, who doesn’t love cheesy? My holiday-themed movie marathon includes It’s a Wonderful Life, so clearly not this guy), so I present to you…

5 Keys to Not Being a Turkey on December LSAT Test Day

Key #1 to Not Being a Turkey on December LSAT Test Day: Anger, fear, aggression. The LSAT are they.

You’ll be going through a range of emotions over the next week and a half. In fact, you’ll probably go through the entire range of emotions over the next week and a half.

The Final Countdown: December LSAT Study Plan for the Last Two Weeks

As of today, we have two weeks until the December LSAT. These are going to be the two most important weeks of your LSAT prep.

The next week should be all about working on your weaknesses. So enjoy your turkey and stuffing, but make sure you suffer from less of a food coma and more of a food nap.

If you’re struggling with the Logic Games section, you should revisit the games that gave you a hard time in the past. You’ll want to redo these games using the correct approach until you’ve got them pretty much memorized.

December LSAT Deadline Rundown: Last Chance to Register

Today is your final chance to register for the December LSAT. You’ll have to do so over the phone or online through the LSAC website.

You should know that the December LSAT is probably going to be your last chance to get an LSAT score in time for this application cycle. So, if you don’t register for the December LSAT, then you’re probably going to have to put off law school for a year.

If you’ve been studying for the December LSAT for the past two months, but for some reason haven’t registered for it yet, you need to do so immediately. Also, if you know you won’t get another chance to study for the LSAT, you should go ahead and register for the December LSAT.

There is still a lot of time left for you to improve your LSAT score.
