Four Tips for the End of February LSAT Prep

With just over a week until the February LSAT, anyone signed up for the test should be in the final stages of their prep. Here’s what you can do for the next 9 days to give yourself the best chance of success (and we’ll have more on the blog next week about other things to keep in mind!).

Review your strategy for each question type.
It’s probably been a while since you learned how to approach each question type. Now that you’re down to the wire, it’s a good idea to go back and refresh your memory about the best strategy for common questions, particularly the ones you haven’t been working on much recently.

February LSAT Deadline Weekend

Some important LSAT deadlines are coming up: the deadline to change your test center or test date is this Sunday, by midnight Eastern Time. That’s if you do it online. If you’re stuck in the 90’s and need to do it by mail, phone, or facsimile, then LSAC needs to receive your request by today. Also, if you’re stuck in the 90s, maybe it’s time to donate that flannel shirt. Somewhere there’s a hipster in need.

Let’s start with the test center change deadline. If nothing good was available when you registered for the LSAT, take a look. Maybe something better has opened up in the mean time. You’ll have to pay a $37 fee to change ($36 in Canada), but that’s well worth it if it saves you a bunch of stress on test day.

Strategies for the Last Month Before the February LSAT

<GULP!> Today marks one month—one month!—until the February LSAT. That’s a mere thirty-one days or, for those of you who are particularly obsessive, 744 hours. (Stop looking at the clock on your phone, and, no, I won’t break it into seconds for you.)

However you’re counting down, we’re getting down to the wire, and it’s time to put your game face on, turn on the afterburners, lock and load, etc. Choose whatever metaphor motivates you.

Up until now, you should’ve been slowly and methodically practicing questions and concepts without timing yourself.

LSAT Resolutions for 2015

The New Year is upon us, and, while you should definitely party your brains out tonight (then recover your brains out tomorrow), now is a good time to think about studying for the February LSAT. In addition to resolving to lose weight, finish that novel, hike Everest, and prepare for the zombie apocalypse, here are five resolutions you must make to get a great score on February 7th.

1. Do away with distractions and unnecessary responsibilities.
Everyone wants a slice of your precious time and none of them understand what it’s like to study for the LSAT. Mom wants your help making pot roast and your friend has a place in Cabo this weekend and that damn novel certainly isn’t going to write itself (dammit!). Well, too bad.

The 2014 LSAT Awards

With 2014 almost through, it’s time for us to hand out the LSATys – our annual awards recognizing things that stood out on this year’s LSATs. So put on your finest and get ready to walk the red carpet. We’ll award each of the following a golden #2 pencil. Or maybe just a regular #2 pencil.

Biggest WTF moment
Every LSAT has hard questions. It’s normal to leave the test center shaking your head at a few of them. But the fourth Logic Game on the June 2014 exam elicited the biggest collective freak-out in a while, possibly since the infamous mauve dinosaurs “dropped” in June 2009.  The game isn’t impossible, and LSAC has put out similar games in the past, but still: that game was weird.

Save Santa in This Very Merry LSAT Logic Game

At the risk of sounding like the terrible e-card I just got from Time Warner, happy holidays from all of us here at Blueprint!

I have no idea whether you’ve been naughty or nice, but as you’ll soon learn in law school, those kind of subjective judgments are all in the eye of the beholder. So here’s a very Christmas-y LSAT Logic game either way.

——

This Christmas, due to the lingering effects of the recession, along with increased competition from online retailers and digital downloads, Santa Claus has been forced to cut costs to remain competitive. He has outsourced gift production to India (largely due to the high demands of the Elves Union), and has downsized his reindeer squad to 7: Blitzen, Cupid, Dasher, Komet, Prancer, Vixen, and, of course, Rudolph.

The LSAT Prep Christmas List

~All I want for Christmas is my No. 2, sharp pencil.~

Right? Something like that?

What a thing to be studying for the LSAT over the holidays. Remember when this time of year was simple? When you anxiously awaited the arrival of Santa, instead of anxiously awaited a random Sunday in February?

But you can still get in the holiday spirit, even as you stress about the February exam. Take your Christmas list, for example. Instead of asking for Tiffany & Co., you could write Santa for a, uh… more practical kind of jewelry.
