A Guide to Blueprint Area LSAT Testing Centers

As you know, the LSAT is a huge deal. It consists of nothing more than pencil and paper, but your performance on LSAT test day could very well determine your entire legal career. Therefore, there’s a lot of tension on these days. The last thing you need is some sort of distraction with the LSAT testing center room.

Scroll through the comments any of our LSAT blog’s past LSAT test day instant recaps, and you’ll find, unfortunately, that distractions are rampant in LSAT testing centers. Oftentimes it’s an annoying or inexperienced proctor. Sometimes it’s the chairs they put you in. Either way, it’s not uncommon for months of intense LSAT prep to go to waste because LSAC can’t consistently maintain their LSAT testing centers. And there are a lot of LSAT testing centers.

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.

Several December LSAT Testing Centers Closed Due to Storm

Good news to whichever December LSAT test-takers has been singing “Let It Snow” in hopes of his or her exam being postponed.

It worked.

LSAC announced today that 15 December LSAT testing centers in five states will be closed tomorrow for the exam. That’s of 10:30 a.m. PST, though, so if you are in an area that has been or will be hit with snow, be sure to refresh this LSAC page throughout the day.

If your December LSAT testing center does get shut down, LSAC will send you an email to confirm. LSAC also says it will email each December LSAT test-taker with options for making up the exam by the end of next week.

This isn’t even the first time this year that LSAC has had to deal with inclement weather causing LSAT testing center closures.

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.
