Good Luck on the 2014 June LSAT!

On behalf of everyone at Blueprint LSAT Prep, we’d like to wish everyone taking the June LSAT the best of luck! That goes double for Blueprint LSAT Prep students, whom we’re not afraid to admit we’re rootin’ for. After all, we taught you everything we know about the LSAT. Make us proud!

When you’re done with the June LSAT, make sure to come right back here to the LSAT blog to discuss it. We’ll have our 2014 June LSAT Instant Recap up sometime this afternoon, and although we can’t talk about any of the details (experimental sections, Reading Comp passages, etc.), we can talk about how difficult you found the test, all the crazy shenanigans from your LSAT testing center, etc.

It’ll be fun. It’ll be informative. And, most importantly, it’ll be after you’ve crushed the June LSAT.

The Weekend Before the June LSAT: What to Do Now?

The June LSAT is three days away. In honor of all your pain and suffering, the LSAT blog is bringing you a support group for June LSAT prep survivors: Remaining Calm, Together.

If you’d like to share something with the group, leave us a comment. This is a safe place. Put on some flute music and relax.

You’re Done Prepping for the June LSAT

You did everything you could to prepare, two more days of frantic LSAT cramming will only hurt. Instead, give your brain two days to marinate and relax. Take a first-world shower. Bring a beer or two. Channel your inner Type B personality. It’s almost over.

I’ve seen a number of students improve their LSAT scores after a well-deserved break from studying. I’ve also seen too many students crash by pounding away at their LSAT prep tests until the last minute.

Aaron Cohn’s 2014 June LSAT Predictions

The June LSAT is coming up in but a few days, so it’s time for our quarterly exercise of predicting what will appear on the test. I spent a week in the desert chasing visions of the LSAT. I also spent several days hiding in the bushes in the LSAC parking lot to really get in touch with the energy coming from that building. Here’s what I’m feeling:

2014 June LSAT Predictions: Logic Games

February LSAT Logic Games were reported to be a bit unusual. Rumor has it that there was even a circular ordering game, something that hadn’t been on a released LSAT in more than 10 years.

I predict a return to basics for the June LSAT: a little bit of routine ordering, maybe an in and out game, and so on. My crystal ball also says there’ll be a 1:1 ordering game with a bit of a unique twist.

How to Get in Optimal Test-Taking Mode for the June LSAT

You’ve spent a lot time preparing for the June LSAT (hopefully). Now that we’re down to crunch time, it’s time to start thinking about the little things that can make a big difference. And as it turns out, that list boils mainly down to basic human needs. Sure, you’ve been sleeping and eating for the past few decades without any help from us, but there are a couple special considerations when it comes to the LSAT – here’s what you need to know.

Key #1 to Getting in Optimal June LSAT Test-Taking Mode: Sleep

Of course, it’s important to be well-rested on LSAT test day. June test-takers are lucky in that you don’t need to worry about waking up early for the exam – every other administration of the LSAT starts at 8:30 a.m.!

One Final Week Before the June LSAT: What You Need to Do

The June LSAT is a week away. That doesn’t sound like a lot of time, but you can get a lot done in the next seven days. OK, technically it’s six days, since it’s probably a good idea to have a day of rest before the LSAT. But hey, God created the universe in six days with a day of rest, so you can probably at least manage to squeeze a couple more points out of your LSAT score.

Here are some tips for your final week before the June LSAT:

Keep your foot on the gas.

With only seven days until game time, you mind might start to get clouded with doubts and distractions. Maybe you haven’t reached your target LSAT score yet. You’re worried about how you’re going to perform next Monday and are thinking, “What if I get sick the day before?” “What if I get stuck on a logic game?” “Am I going to have to retake?”

Down-to-the-Wire Tips for Every Section on the June LSAT

It’s the last week of LSAT prep, and most of you are struggling with a specific section. The LSAT blog is here to help.

In general, you don’t want to focus solely on your weakest LSAT section. It seems counterintuitive, but you’ll progress faster if you mix up your practice. There’s some good science behind this – you can read about it in Make it Stick – or you can just take my word for it.

Let’s get down to specific tips:

If you’re struggling with Reading Comprehension:

Reading Comprehension is probably the most difficult LSAT section to prep for, but improvement is definitely possible.

Diving Back Into June LSAT Prep After Memorial Day Weekend

How was that long weekend? Relaxing? Did you fire up a grill? How does it feel if I tell you that Memorial Day also marked two weeks to go before the June LSAT?

Not so great, you say?

It’s time to get back to studying. If you took some time off over the weekend, that isn’t necessarily fatal. It can even be good to get your mind off the LSAT for a little bit. Now your task is to make the most of these next two weeks.

If you didn’t take one over the weekend, start with a full LSAT practice test. Then, review it. When you’re done with that, review some more. It’s easy to succumb to the temptation to take LSAT practice test after LSAT practice test in hopes that your score will climb.

5 June LSAT Prep Tips for Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day weekend is here, which means we’re about two weeks away from the June LSAT. Enjoy yourself: punish your digestive tract with BBQ, and give Black Hawk Down a few goes. But don’t fritter away too much time dreaming about the massive admissions boost you could have gotten if only you had been a Delta Force operator. This time is too important to waste.

Here are some LSAT blog tips to help you make the most of your final big push toward that high June LSAT score:

Tip #1: Make sure you can get the easy points

Diagraming and formal logic are among the most learnable LSAT skills. Make sure you’ve got your sufficient and necessary condition indicators memorized – the trick is that they’re mostly synonyms for each other (every, any, all, each; must, needs, requires, depends). Diagrammable questions should be quick and easy points.

3 Tips for the Final 3 Weeks of June LSAT Prep

With three weeks left until the June LSAT, things are getting real. Now is not a time for panic, but focus; you can get a lot done in the upcoming days with the right mindset. Here are three tips that will help you maximize your potential over the next three weeks:

Tip #1 for the Final 3 Weeks of June LSAT Prep: Don’t just take practice LSATs – study them.

We all have been taught the importance of practice exams. Taking a whole bunch of them will help build the endurance you’ll need when your brain starts to get tired in that third hour. But when it comes to practice LSATs, quality is just important as quantity. The key to getting the most out of your exams is setting aside the time to properly review them. This goes beyond just looking up explanations for the questions you got wrong. Really try and study your results. What categories of LR questions are you missing the most?

All Aboard! The June LSAT Registration Deadline is Tomorrow

Attention: the June LSAT train is leaving the station.

If the firm lodging of your nose in LSAT books has prevented you from registering thus far, now is the time to dislodge that schnozzle and point it toward LSAC’s website. Tomorrow, May 16, is the final registration deadline for the June test. As Kool and the Gang so wisely advise, “If you really want it, get down on it.”

Wait, you say – can’t I take a chance on a walk-in registration on the day of the test?

No, not allowed ever.

Keep in mind that May 16 is the late and absolute last registration deadline and that your registration must be completed online by 11:59 p.m. or by telephone within business hours.
