Two Weeks Until the February LSAT: Ready to Roll, Right?

The February LSAT is 15 days away. Catch your breath. It’s going to be OK.

By now you should have covered everything that’s going to be on the LSAT. Your job over the next two weeks is to put it all together. If it’s not quite there as of now, that’s OK.

It’s normal not to feel ready yet. This weekend, because you need to know where you stand and you need to practice taking full tests, you should take at least one LSAT practice test. No, you don’t get to watch the Pro Bowl. But let’s be honest: Would you even be tempted to watch the Pro Bowl if you didn’t have LSAT studying to procrastinate?

Review those LSAT practice tests verrrry carefully. You can improve on the score, but you need to figure out where that improvement needs to come from.

A Slew of February LSAT Deadlines Expire This Weekend

If you’re taking the February LSAT, you should know about some final deadlines over the next few days. You can see all the February LSAT deadlines here, but let’s discuss some of the highlights.

Tomorrow, January 17, is your absolute last chance to register for the February LSAT. It’ll cost you an extra $70 for late registration, but if you’re planning to take the February LSAT and you haven’t registered yet, get to LSAC’s website right away.

Sunday, January 19, is your deadline for a few things. First of all, it’s your deadline to change February LSAT test centers online. If you didn’t like the LSAT test center options when you signed up for the February LSAT, you can take a look and see if something better has opened up. If it’s worth the $36 fee, you can make a change.

12 Tasks That Will Turn You Into an LSAT Hercules

The Legend of Hercules opens in theaters today. In honor of this latest rehashed plot, here are the 12 Herculean LSAT Tasks that will forgive you for the sins you’ve committed against your LSAT score — like taking practice tests in the afternoon, or doing them in pen.

Herculean LSAT Task I: Memorize the Common LSAT Logical Reasoning Flaws

For your first Herculean LSAT task, I want you to memorize all of the common LSAT Logical Reasoning Flaws. On any given LSAT, knowing these flaws will be the key to getting the right answer for at least 40 questions. Let that sink in.

Beat the Deadlines: Register for the February LSAT Today

The December LSAT is so last year. The test is taken and LSAT scores are out. Whether you’re disappointed in your December LSAT score and looking toward the February LSAT, or you’ve been planning on the February LSAT all along, some important deadlines are coming up. Most importantly:

Today is the regular registration deadline for the February LSAT. It’s the deadline for your registration to be received, so you’ll have to do it online. Or by phone if anyone still does that.

If you miss today’s February LSAT deadline, you can still register online until January 17, but it’ll cost you an extra $70 for late registration. So get yourself registered today unless you enjoy making donations to LSAC.

Weighing Your December LSAT Score: Is a Retake in Order?

In the wake of last week’s release of 2013 December LSAT scores, I’ve been seeing one question over and over: Should I retake the LSAT in February?

You’ll need to decide quickly, because tomorrow is the early registration deadline for the February LSAT; you can also register late by mail by Jan. 14, but you’ll still need to make up your mind ASAP, because LSAC has to receive your registration by the 14th (and you’ll have to pay an additional fee to register).

So let’s say that your December LSAT score fell short of your hopes and expectations, and you’re unsure whether you should try again on the February LSAT. Here are a couple questions to ask yourself:

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like One Month Before the LSAT

2013 is very nearly over. That means the February LSAT is coming up fast.

The holidays might not have been the best thing for your February LSAT studies. If you’ve been warmed by the yuletide glow lately and not so much by the, uh, glow of the LSAT, that’s OK. There’s still time. It’s normal for the holidays to get in the way.

The key is to get back on your study plan now. Figure out where you are and what you need to get done, and start this weekend. All the good holiday stuff is over, anyway. The food is eaten, the presents are unwrapped, and the fruitcake is going stale. Actually, on second thought, the fruitcake might never go stale. Consider your return to LSAT studies as an early New Year’s resolution.

HLS is for Lovers…of Applying Late

Harvard is causing quite a stir this year. As announced on their garish blog, they will be accepting the February LSAT for applicants who want to begin law school this upcoming fall.

Their stated reason is the postponement of the LSAT for many test-takers due to winter storms throughout the country. And many people are saying that’s most likely the case.

However, there is another, vocal group who insists that they’re accepting later applications to make up for the decline in applicants – a decline of 11% again, continuing the recent downward trend.

The Top Law School Stories of 2013

In case you haven’t been on the internet lately, 2013 is almost over. It’s been an interesting year for law school news, so I’ve rounded up some of the more interesting stories for you.

Top Law School Stories of 2013 I: Law School Applications At 30-Year Low

Law school applications are still plummeting. But this is good news for anyone who still wants to go to law school. There’s less competition trying to get into your ideal school, and you might even get some money thrown at you.

The February LSAT is Weird, But Weird Can Be Good

If you plan on taking the February LSAT, then today would be a good day to start studying. But, if you’re superstitious about doing anything on Friday the 13th, or you’re not sure about taking the February LSAT, then I have some advice for you.

The February LSAT is kind of weird. For all the other LSAT administrations you will have exactly one “experimental” section, but for the February LSAT the whole thing, in two ways, is “experimental.”

First, some of the content might be slightly weird or unusual. Maybe you’ll get a prompt that’s going to be hard to pin to a question type. Maybe a weird Logic Game intro will show up. Such things shouldn’t be a major issue for you. If anything truly weird or unusual comes up, it will be weird and unusual for everyone, and the LSAT score “curve” will reflect this.
