One Week Until LSAT Registration Deadline!

One week. We’re not talking Barenaked Ladies. Or Buster Keaton. Or even Joshua Jackson (although here at Blueprint HQ, we’re always talking Joshua Jackson… ducks fly together, yo).

No, we’re talking about the regular registration deadline for the September LSAT (the late registration deadline is September 5th, which will cost you an extra $70 smackeroos).

You have one more week to decide whether it’s time to take the plunge and sign up, or whether you’re better off waiting until the December exam. If you’re not sure that this is the moment, here’s something to consider.

2014 June LSAT: To Cancel Your LSAT Score or Not to Cancel

So you took the June LSAT Monday. It wasn’t the dreamlike experience you hoped it would be. Now you’re wondering, “Should I cancel my LSAT score?”

We’re here to help.

First, let’s go over what it means to cancel your LSAT score and how to do it. LSAC has to receive your cancellation request within six days of the LSAT. You can send your request by fax or overnight mail; there’s no way to cancel your LSAT score online. LSAC tells you exactly what you need to send to cancel your LSAT score.

If you cancel your June LSAT score, law schools will see that you took the exam and canceled, but they won’t ever know what you would have scored.

3 Reasons Shaq Going to Law School Should Inspire You

In what is certainly my favorite “news” story of last week, Shaquille O’Neal announced that he is considering going to law school (and is studying for the LSAT already). Unfortunately for the Big Shaqtus, there are a few unique obstacles he may face along the way to earning a J.D. Fortunately for all other prospective LSAT and law students, these obstacles can be a source of inspiration.

How Shaq Going to Law School Should Inspire You I: His Size

On the basketball court, Shaq’s massive physique was a tremendous asset; in an LSAT test center, it would be quite the opposite. To put this in perspective, I am an averagely built, 5’11” male, and I felt cramped by the combination desk/chair at my test center.

A Million Ways to Die on the LSAT

Hey Dude! It’s a little wild and a little strange, getting your LSAT score in that range. If you’re too young for that classic 90’s Nickelodeon reference then maybe you’ve heard of Seth MacFarlane’s new movie, A Million Ways to Die in the West.

Whatever your age, in the spirit of western comedy, how ‘bout you saddle up, partner, while I regale you with some of the million ways to die on the LSAT.

So prepare to be regaled…on a horse, if possible.

#1 Way to Die on the LSAT: Forgetting Your LSAT Admission Ticket
If you don’t have your ticket then you’re not getting in the LSAT test center.

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.

You’ve Got One Month Left to Register for the June LSAT

We’re one month away from the June LSAT registration deadline. If you think this is a lot of time, then you’re indulging in some false comfort.

You need to sign up early if you want to get a decent LSAT test center before they all fill up. Dilly dally, and you could get stuck with a hole in the wall three counties over with a former hall monitor for a proctor who just can’t wait to make your day resemble something out of a Turkish prison.

In the recent past, LSAT proctors – high on power and ineptitude – have written up students for innocently touching their pencils during the break, called time five minutes early, and confiscated analog wristwatches. On the other hand, a good LSAT proctor – usually a law student who’s slogged through an LSAT or three herself – will make your day a delight.

The Role of Luck on the LSAT (and How to Prepare for it)

Today, all across the US and Canada (this is an LSAT blog, after all), many people of Irish heritage and not-one-bit-Irish heritage alike will celebrate St. Patrick by wearing green, drinking things that are green but aren’t normally supposed to be (If I must drink something green, make it a Chartreuse and soda), and generally carousing about town getting utterly plastered.

Nonetheless, it makes for a good excuse to discuss the role of luck in the LSAT. For the most part, the LSAT is a predictable test. Practice tests will generally give you a good gauge of where you stand. But at the margins, chance can play a role on LSAT test day. Here are some ways it can factor in.

Taking LSAT Inspiration From the Winter Olympics in Sochi

Unless you’ve managed to avoid television, social media and talking to anyone over the past few weeks, you know that the Winter Olympics are in full swing. Although the LSAT is far from an athletic endeavor, there are a number of lessons that LSAT students can learn from the athletes (and Bob Costas) competing in Sochi.

LSAT Inspiration to Take From the Winter Olympics I: Don’t get discouraged

One of the most popular images to come from the Winter Olympics is Ashley Wagner’s pouty face after receiving a lower than expected score in the women’s short program of the figure skating team competition. While I hope this is not the case, I’m sure many students probably make similar (albeit less dramatic) faces when they receive their LSAT practice test scores. However, like Wagner, these students should not be discouraged and should continue working hard.
