December LSAT Test Day: Do You Know What to Bring?

The December LSAT is two days away. You’ve come a long way to get this far, but there are few more things you need to know for Saturday.

What You Need to Bring on December LSAT Test Day

To get into your December LSAT test center you will need to bring the following items:

• December LSAT admission ticket with passport-style photo attached
• Photo identification
• One gallon clear plastic Ziploc bag

LSAC recommends that you wait until the night before the LSAT to print out your admissions ticket, since they may make some last-minute changes.

Make the Most of Your Final Days Before the December LSAT

It’s December 3, your Thanksgiving food coma has barely worn off, and you’re staring at the December LSAT coming up this Saturday. It’s your last week of LSAT prep before the December LSAT, so it’s important that you make the most of it.

By now, you should have finished covering all the kinds of questions you’ll see on the LSAT. Whether it’s your first time taking the real thing, or you’re an LSAT veteran, you should devote this week to timed practice: full LSAT practice tests and full timed sections. Of course, review them carefully. And if anything comes up that you need to review, do a little extra practice.

But don’t overdo it. If you’re a sleep-deprived wreck on December LSAT test day, you’ll erase any benefit you might have gained from studying like crazy this week.

Notable 2013 December LSAT Deadlines That Start Today

The 2013 December LSAT is just over a month away, but we already have some very important LSAT deadlines to deal with. Let’s run through them.

Today is your last day to register early for the December LSAT. So, if you’re planning on taking the December LSAT, you should go to the LSAC’s website and register immediately. Registering early is a really good idea because you’ll save $70, and your favorite LSAT test center is more likely to be available.

There are some very huge differences between LSAT test centers. Some test centers feature small desks, loud environments, and LSAT proctors from hell (the kind that call time 5 minutes early). You want to stay as far away from these as possible.

Decision Time: Should You Withdraw from the October LSAT?

Here we go. It’s the final countdown. You may be wondering if you’re ready to actually take the October LSAT. Or, you may just be thinking, “October LSAT, I wish I knew how to quit you.” Whichever position you find yourself in, I’m gonna shoot straight with you.

You should take the October LSAT if…

If you would be happy with an LSAT score that is two points lower than your best practice LSAT score, then you should take the October LSAT.

If you know that you will never be able to study for the LSAT again, then you should take the October LSAT.

You should NOT take the October LSAT if…

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.

There’s Still Hope if Your October LSAT Testing Center is Full

Here at Most Strongly Supported, we love saying “we told you so.” (Who doesn’t?)

And hey, remember back in June when we told you to sign up for your October LSAT test center pronto because they tend to fill up? Well, if you didn’t heed our advice until now, you may have noticed that the early deadline to sign up for the October LSAT is one week away, and it just may be the case that your preferred October LSAT testing centers are full.

So what do you do? Panic? Cry? Resign yourself to going to truck driver school?

No, no, and definitely not. The first thing you need to do is sign up for the October LSAT posthaste.

The Morning Cometh: Reaction to the 2013 June LSAT

Last year’s June LSAT saw the surprise introduction of two-page Logic Games. In retrospect, that’s a tough act to follow. It’s been a day since this year’s June LSAT, and this time there were no such surprises. Everything went pretty much according to expectation.

I’ve heard from a number of students who took the June LSAT (as well as checked out yesterday’s 2013 June LSAT Instant Recap) and no one I’ve talked to was too surprised by anything on the test. With a few small exceptions, the consensus seems that it was a typical LSAT.

The Logical Reasoning sections from yesterday’s June LSAT seem to have been fairly unremarkable in difficulty. There were easy questions, medium questions and hard questions, as there always are. Some rare question types made appearances: crux questions continue their recent streak, and if you though agree questions were dead, they were only just hibernating.

LSAC Contraband: Don’t Bring These Items to the June LSAT

Entering your June LSAT test center next week is going to feel a lot like entering a foreign country. You’re going to have to present them with your LSAT admissions ticket, show them your photo ID, and have your bag searched for contraband.

Here’s the full list of what you can’t bring into the June LSAT test center:

• electronic timers of any kind
• digital watches, alarm watches, beeping watches, calculator watches
• cell phones, pay phones, beepers, pagers, personal digital assistants (PDAs)
• personal computers
• calculators

7 LSAT Prep Lessons to Take Away From the Indy 500

This past Sunday was an exciting day for motor racing fans. Two of the year’s most prestigious races — the Indianapolis 500 and its much richer European cousin, the Monaco Grand Prix — were held on the same day. Monaco was pretty disappointing, but the Indy 500 delivered drama, excitement, and a few lessons for June LSAT test-takers.

LSAT Prep Lesson I to Learn From the Indy 500: Walk the track before race day

Many of the top drivers in the Indy 500 will walk the track before any racing goes down so they can get to know the track better, feel more comfortable, and spot any potential problems. You should do the same with your LSAT test center. Before LSAT test day you should visit your LSAT test center to locate exactly where your exam will be.
