If you signed up for the June ’18 LSAT, your exam is just 10 days away. That’s not even long enough to binge-watch every season of Supernatural. Let’s assume you’ve done everything right up to this point in your studies: drilled down the fundamentals, made your way through the curriculum of each section type and completed multiple practice exams under exam-day conditions. But speaking for all of the law school-bound perfectionists eager to use every opportunity to prepare for the exam, I can tell you that there are some things about your official, LSAC-administered LSAT that just won’t be the same as what you practice. The best you can do now is to read about the particularities of Test Day and give yourself the time to get mentally ready for this oh-so-unique experience.
Stress is a part of life, but it can be especially difficult to manage on the eve of a life-changing test like the LSAT. If you are preparing for the February exam, you are acutely aware of the way a small point difference on the LSAT can dramatically impact your school and career prospects, as well as your debt burden for years to come. But managing your stress and testing frustrations are an essential part of performing well on the exam, and much more importantly, in supporting your long-term mental health.
