First-Hand Advice on Juggling Finals and June LSAT Prep

The June LSAT is a beautiful thing. The afternoon start time means you get to sleep in. The early administration means you’ll have your LSAT score before the application cycle even begins. But for all its virtues, the June LSAT has one nasty secret: if you’re a college student, those last four crucial weeks of studying are going to overlap with your final exams. Yikes.

Thankfully, juggling LSAT prep with your finals is possible. As someone who took the June LSAT as a college student and survived, I thought I’d take a moment to give my two cents about what I learned from the experience. If you do it right, juggling final exams with your LSAT prep won’t feel like “juggling” at all.

Balancing finals with the LSAT means you have a good amount of work to do in a limited amount of time.

Don’t Say “Mayday!” to Your June LSAT Prep Yet

When I was an undergraduate, I decided it would be a good idea to see how quickly I could eat one of Taco Bell’s 12-taco boxes (one of my friends had finished a box in under 10 minutes, and I am never one to back down from a challenge). About halfway through, I regretted my decision. I wasn’t going quickly enough and I was starting to feel sick — simply put, I wasn’t getting the results I wanted.

If you’re in a similar position with your June LSAT prep — you are taking too long and missing questions you feel like you shouldn’t be — don’t give up. The June LSAT is over a month away and there is plenty of time to see drastic improvements; here are a few tips to help make the most of your study time and start seeing the results you want.

It’s time to start prepping for the June LSAT. Some of you will be taking the LSAT for the second or third time. Others have no idea what they’re in for. If this is your first encounter with the LSAT, then this post should help.

Here are 5 things every newcomer should know about the LSAT:

1) Studying For The LSAT Will Make You Smarter

The LSAT is nothing like your traditional college exam. There will be no info-dumping frenzy. There will be no long list of facts, or vocabulary to memorize. Specialized knowledge of bee behavior or electoral systems won’t help – and might actually hurt. Instead, the LSAT will test your ability to – well, frankly – spot B.S.

Sweet 16: LSAT Inspiration from the Best of March Madness

March Madness is upon us and for you that probably means the start of June LSAT prep. For many, March Madness means the NCAA basketball tournament . The Big Dance. It began with 68 schools competing to become national champion, but after a thrilling first few rounds, that number is now down to the Sweet 16.

We here at Blueprint LSAT Prep believe there are lessons to be learned from the Sweet 16, especially from the successes of some schools, the “Cinderella” stories. Drawing inspiration from these overachievers could be just what you need to succeed on LSAT test day!

If you’re not familiar with how the tournament field is structured, each school is assigned a seed between (1) and (16) in one of four brackets: South, West, East and Midwest.

Our advice: just read everything — The Wall Street Journal, Wikipedia, The Onion, Marcel Proust, product labels (speaking of, what is methochloroisothiazolinone, and what is it doing in my shampoo?).

Final Four June LSAT Prep Tip #1: Seeding isn’t destiny

This year’s Final Four features Wichita State, who entered the tourney as a 9 seed. That didn’t stop the Shockers (I know, right) from knocking off the No. 1 seed in their region, Gonzaga. (How long will it be before Gonzaga is talked about as a potential No. 1 seed again?) Syracuse and Michigan, two of the other Final Four representatives, entered as No. 4 seeds, and each also knocked off a 1 seed.
