If you’re going to take the October 2013 LSAT, now is the time to start forming your plan of attack. If you’re going to take a prep course, most of them (including Blueprint’s) will start sometime this month. In other words, it’s time to sign up…now.
Secondly, you should pick a test center as soon as possible. While the deadline for registration is a ways off, the test center that you want may fill up fast. If you don’t get a test center close to home, you’ll likely end up having to sleep in a hotel room the night before the exam and eat a less-than-satisfying breakfast the morning of. In addition, failing to book your desired test center will make it much more difficult for you to do a practice run of your test day activities, and doing so will require a lot more driving.
