Final June LSAT Registration Deadline Today: Are You Ready?

You must register through the LSAC’s website or by phone by midnight tonight if you want to take the June LSAT. If you can come up with the correct diagram* for the contrapositive of the last sentence, you might be in good shape for the June LSAT, but there are some other skills you should have learned by now, as well.

What You Should Know if You’re Ready for the June LSAT

Your best practice LSAT score is still ahead of you. We still have three and a half weeks of prep time for the June LSAT. So, you shouldn’t let your current practice LSAT scores determine whether or not you’re ready to merely register for the June LSAT. At this point you’re probably still struggling with timing. If your accuracy is pretty high (the ratio of correct answer choices to questions attempted), you’re going to enjoy a pretty sizable LSAT score improvement once you get your timing down.

Beat Today’s June LSAT Early Registration Deadline

If you’re planning to take the June LSAT but you haven’t registered for it yet, stop reading and go register through LSAC right now. Anyone who registers for the June LSAT after 11:59 p.m. will have to pay a $69 late fee. That’s like letting LSAC steal 260 chicken nuggets from you.

For the June LSAT Fence-Sitters

Not sure you want to take the June LSAT? Well, here are some things you have to think about:

First, the June LSAT is the only test administration offered at 12:30 p.m., the rest are offered at 8:30 a.m. So, if you’re not a morning person the June LSAT is for you.
Second, getting the LSAT out of the way by June will give you plenty of time to focus on getting some awesome recommendation letters and putting together a sweet personal statement.

Act Fast or Risk Being Waitlisted at a June LSAT Test Center

Over the last couple years, there’s been a lot of talk about how quickly the population of LSAT test-takers has declined. Despite all that, many aspiring law students are finding that their LSAT test centers of choice are already full for the June LSAT. Is there going to be a rebound in the LSAT test-taking population, or has LSAC adjusted to the trend by making fewer seats available? If you’re locked out of the LSAT, it doesn’t really matter what the cause is.

What can you do about this? If there is, in fact, an LSAT test center open within 100 miles of your domicile, you get two choices: you can take what LSAC offers you or you can hold off on registering.

If you decide you don’t want to take the exam at some distant LSAT test center, it’s possible that if you check back later something closer will open up.

It’s Time to Transition into June LSAT Prep Mode

Now that February LSAT scores are out, the June LSAT looms ahead. If you’re planning on taking the June LSAT, it’s okay if you haven’t done much of anything yet. As time goes by, your inaction will become less and less OK. Kind of like a 40-year-old showing up to work in a high schooler’s wardrobe: what once looked perfectly normal starts to work against you.

First of all: go to LSAC’s website and register for the June LSAT. Do it as soon as you can. The earlier you register, the better the choice of June LSAT testing centers you’ll have. Getting your pick of June LSAT test centers now will keep you from having to spend the night before the June LSAT in some godforsaken motel by the freeway somewhere, listening to the regular clientele entertain their clientele. More importantly, once you’re registered for the June LSAT you can circle June 10 on your calendar as the day you’ll take the June LSAT.

Things to Do the Day Before the February LSAT (Except Study)

Happy February LSAT eve, everyone.

For those in the Northeast affected by Nemo, check out this blog post for details about any February LSAT cancellations. We’ll be updating it throughout the day with the latest info from LSAC. If you are among those affected, hunker down with a bowl of soup and do some LSAT questions to stay fresh. If you are not among those affected, please, continue reading for some handy advice regarding recommended activities for the day before the February LSAT.

Today should be a mental day of rest. The only LSAT-related thing you ought to do today is make sure you’re logistically ready to go tomorrow. Make sure you have the route to your LSAT test center mapped out.

Hang in There: Only Two Weeks ‘Til the February LSAT

The February LSAT is 15 days away. Does that make you freak out? In two weeks and a day, you’ll be sitting in an LSAT test center tackling a fresh slate of logic games, reading comp, and logical reasoning. And even though it’s perfectly normal to freak out, going crazy doesn’t help you prepare. Channel that energy into your studies so that you’re confident you’ll be as ready as you can be on LSAT test day.

If there are any changes to your technique you think you need to make, those should be your first priority. Likewise, any bits or pieces of the LSAT you haven’t covered yet in your studies or aren’t sure how to deal with, you should get to as soon as possible. It’s important that you be consistent in the way you practice over these next two weeks. You’ll be refining your approach as you go, of course, but it isn’t generally advisable to make significant changes to your technique in the week before the LSAT.

5 Things to Remember Before Taking the December LSAT

Tomorrow’s the day: the December LSAT. By the early afternoon, it’ll all be over, leaving you to work on your law school applications as you wait for your LSAT score. For today, relax. Don’t touch those LSAT books. The LSAT studying you’ve been doing over the last weeks and months will help you out; cramming won’t.

Double check your LSAT test day list. If you still need a passport photo, go get one right now. Then, do whatever it takes to get your mind off tomorrow’s LSAT. Well, maybe “whatever it takes” is a little strong. Don’t do anything that’ll leave you, uh, impaired tomorrow.

We at Blueprint LSAT Prep would like to wish you good luck on tomorrow’s LSAT (here are some predictions for the December LSAT, if that interests you).

See Which December LSAT Deadlines Await You Tomorrow

Say it with me now (and try not to panic): “The December LSAT is less than a month away.” Now that you’re done crapping your mental pants, it’s time to remind you of a couple important December LSAT deadlines. Tomorrow, Nov. 9, is the last day you’ll be able to do the following:

– Register late for the December LSAT
– Change your December LSAT test center
– Change your December LSAT test date
– Withdraw from the December LSAT and get a partial refund

And, surprise, surprise, each of these above items comes with an associated cost. An LSAT test center change will run you $35. An LSAT test date change will run you $80.

Watch Out for These Looming October LSAT Deadlines

If you’re preparing for the October LSAT, don’t overlook actually signing up to take the test. Some important LSAC deadlines are coming up.

Tomorrow, September 14, is your absolute final deadline to register for the 2012 October LSAT. LSAC considers your registration late at this point, so it’ll cost you an extra $69 to register on top of the usual $160. If you want to take the October LSAT and haven’t registered yet, go to LSAC’s website and do so right away. If you don’t, you’ll find yourself excluded from the LSAT test center the morning of October 6, sadly pressing your face against the glass because all your friends are in there taking the LSAT but you aren’t allowed in the building.

If you’ve already signed up for the October LSAT, there are upcoming deadlines for you, too.

What to Do and What Not to Do this Weekend Before the LSAT

Today is Friday. All that separates you from the June LSAT on Monday is a long weekend. It’s ok. Take a deep breath. Everything’s going to be alright. To help get you through the LSAT eve weekend, we’ve got some tips for what to do and what not to do in this final home stretch.

DO get yourself into a routine. The nice thing about the June LSAT is that you can sleep in, but you should still go to bed and wake up every day at the same time from here on out. This will help get you to sleep the night before the LSAT, and will make Monday feel like just another day.

DO NOT go to bed too late or wake up too early. You need to be getting plenty of sleep not only the night before the LSAT, but the nights leading up to it as well.
