Your Instincts Can Betray You on the LSAT

Gather ‘round, children, and let me tell you a parable:

Once upon a time, there was a very smart LSAT student. This student took her diagnostic test, got a solid score, and dutifully began to work through the lessons of her Blueprint LSAT course.

Read this to avoid June LSAT gloom.

Blueprint classes for the June LSAT are getting started soon (a few are already underway). It’s a good time to talk about where the June LSAT puts you in terms of the law school application cycle.

If you’re taking the June LSAT, you’re looking at applying to law school this fall to start in fall 2018. Application deadlines for fall 2017 have come and gone. Law schools made some exceptions to their deadlines when applications were falling and they were desperate for students, but it looks like applications are on the way up right now.

A month ’til spring classes? But I wanna study now!

If you’re taking a Blueprint LSAT class, you may be wondering what you should be doing before class starts. You don’t need to do anything to prepare — the class is designed to take you from LSAT nobody to LSAT expert. So if you’d like to just pretend the LSAT isn’t coming up until your class starts, that’s fine. But if you’d like to get a head start, that’s fine, too. It certainly can’t hurt. Here are some ideas.

Do I have to study for the February LSAT over Christmas break?

Yes. Glad we got that out of the way. Now we can talk about how to do that without ruining the season. Here’s one quick and easy idea.

Make flashcards.

Yes, there is no technology whatsoever involved here, but it’s convenient and amazingly portable. Wanna study for thirty minutes while your SO shops it out? Then you can chill when you get home rather than worry.

Cancel My December LSAT Score? Keep It? Help!

The deadline to cancel your December LSAT score is this Friday. That’s coming up, so let’s talk about what it means and how to make the decision.

You can cancel your LSAT score through by going to the LSAT Status page of your LSAC account and following the instructions there. Those words feel weird to type — you’d be shocked at how recently canceling required a fax or overnight-mailed letter.

The Perfect Snack for The December 2016 LSAT

We all know the most important part of the LSAT is your test day snack. It almost goes without saying. This post is going to cover the best, and worst, snack day options. Believe me, not all snacks are created equal — this is serious business.

First, let’s talk about some snacks that you should definitely not bring to the LSAT. I would recommend against bringing Red Bull, Five Hour Energy, or any other energy drink unless you are very used to taking practice tests with the jolt of liquid courage such beverages provide.
