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.

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?”

What to Do Now If Your 2013 December LSAT Was Postponed

Winter made its arrival official last week when it hammered the United States with bitter cold temperatures and dangerous weather conditions. The results: very snowy football, and almost 30 LSAT test centers closed for the 2013 December LSAT.

While most December LSAT test-takers are beginning the long wait for their LSAT scores, or perhaps debating whether to cancel, the unlucky ones who were registered at those LSAT testing centers must now wait for the word on when they’ll get to retake the LSAT. If your December LSAT was delayed, this blog post is for you.

The first thing you should know is that you need to stay ready. LSAC says that it will get word to you this week about your make up December LSAT test date.

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.

October LSAT Early Withdraw Deadline is One Week Away

You are no doubt keenly aware that there is a little less than a month until the October LSAT.

If the thought strikes fear into your heart, you’re certainly not alone. And that’s okay – you’re not supposed to feel ready at this point, or even close to ready. The last month is when things should start coming together for you, so although you’ve still got plenty of work to do, there is no cause for concern at this point.

In related news, September 13 (one week from today) is the last day to withdraw from the October LSAT and receive a refund. This is important for two different groups of people:

As we discussed last week, anyone who is unhappy with his or her October LSAT testing center should be primed and ready to go on the 13th.

Sign Up for an Upcoming Law School Admission Workshop

First up, a reminder that Tuesday is the early deadline registration for the October LSAT. So if you plan to take the October LSAT and don’t want to pay a late fee, get on it. If you find your preferred October LSAT testing center is full, it’s not the end of the world.

The fact that we’re talking about October LSAT deadlines means it’s also law school application season. While taking the LSAT is a behemoth of a task, putting together a convincing law school application can be just as daunting — especially if you haven’t started yet.

Luckily, Blueprint LSAT Prep and Anna Ivey Consulting are here to help.

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.

Counting Down Your Final 10 Days Until the June LSAT

As of today, there are 10 days left until the June LSAT.

The ideal use of the next 10 days would be to calmly continue taking LSAT practice tests and drilling weaknesses, while getting plenty of sleep and eating well. After a year or so of observing students, though, I know that the reaction is usually a little different. Here is what I believe to be a more typical outline of the next ten days:

Day 10 Until the June LSAT: Read an LSAT blog post pointing out that there are 10 days until the June LSAT. Panic. Think about everything you still need to study. Panic again.

Day 9 Until the June LSAT: Dive into studying with a renewed sense of purpose.

Day 8 Until the June LSAT: Take an LSAT practice test.
