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.

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.

Blueprint LSAT Prep Courses Open for 2014 February LSAT

There’s a lot going on in the world of LSAT next weekend (Dec. 7 and 8). With the December LSAT going down that Saturday, the baton changes hands Sunday with the start of Blueprint LSAT Prep’s winter 2013-2014 classroom courses in preparation for the February LSAT.

Because of law school application timelines, the February LSAT is the least popular LSAT that LSAC offers. However, Blueprint LSAT Prep still has six locations where you can take an LSAT prep course (as well as our online LSAT course, which will grant you access for the June LSAT, as well!).

Here’s a rundown of Blueprint LSAT Prep classroom courses for the February LSAT — all of which start on Dec. 8, 2013:

Logical Reasonings / 11.18.13

A) Retaking the LSAT is one thing. Reapplying to law school is another. Law Admissions Lowdown.

B) You wouldn’t think there’d be drama at a law school in Wyoming, but sure enough… Above the Law.

C) You’re never too young to go to law school, and you’re never too old to practice law. Just ask Jerome. ABA Journal.

D) Canada really is nice. Today, to commemorate today’s LSAT blog post (we assume), Toronto’s city council stripped mayor Rob Ford of his powers. CNN.

E) If law school doesn’t work out, you can always become a professional cuddler. Yahoo! Shine.

Tips on Dating and General Interacting During LSAT Prep

We spend so much time focused on LSAT prep that we sometimes forget the people in our lives who suffer along with us. Not our classmates and study partners, but friends, family, and potential lovers.

That’s why reading this post on Yahoo! Answers is as enlightening as it is tragic. This young Romeo just wants to find his LSAT Juliet, but her study habits are keeping them apart. Hopefully hemlock isn’t involved.

So today, this post is for those of you out there who are dealing with someone prepping for the LSAT. It’s still going to be addressed to test takers, since if you’re not prepping for the exam, you probably aren’t reading this LSAT blog (and I don’t know why I’m still talking to you).

What to Do Now That the October LSAT is Out of the Way

It’s time for everyone to take a collective sigh of relieve: The October LSAT is over. By most reports, it wasn’t particularly easy (though it was also pretty standard), so congrats on not passing out in the middle of it and cancelling your LSAT score (yes, there were reports of that happening).

For those of you prepping on the East Coast, you’ll be surprised to go outside and see the leaves changing colors. Yes, summer ended while you were buried under conditional statements, and fall is under way.

For those of you prepping on the West Coast, you’ll be completely unsurprised to go outside and see that it’s still perpetual summer. Enjoy your November tans while the rest of us start packing on that winter weight.

Use Your Final Days Before the October LSAT Wisely

Here it is: the final week before the October LSAT. If you’re taking the LSAT this Saturday, it’s important that you use the next few days wisely.

You should be putting the final touches on your LSAT skills as you study. Take a timed test or two, do some timed sections, and review them carefully. Most of what you do should be close to what you’ll do on LSAT test day: 35-minute sections, with a clock. It isn’t the time to make any drastic changes to your technique, but try to identify your weak areas and tweak things as needed.

It’s just as important that you taper off the amount you study. You should put some good work in over the next few days, but not so much that it comes at the expense of sleep or sanity. The LSAT isn’t a test that you can cram for.
