How to Study for the LSAT Over the Holidays

The holidays are a stressful time, and they can be particularly stressful if you’re trying to find time to study for the LSAT on top of your various other obligations. Here are some tips to navigate balancing your study obligations with your social (and other) obligations this season.


When the “L” in LSAT stands for Lent.

An underappreciated aspect of studying for the LSAT is what you must give up. And so now — with Lent upon us — it seems like a good time to talk about… simplifying.

But it seems to me that simplifying — getting rid of some things in life that might be slowing you down — is a great exercise, one that could be applied to the intensive period of preparing for the LSAT.

Seasons Greetings from Blueprint

Much has been written on the meaning of the holidays. Thanksgiving is easy; it’s right there in the name, and it’s a secular holiday. Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa on the other hand… Is it the particular religious/spiritual underpinnings of each? Or something more universal? Spending time with friends and family? And what about the New Year? Is it looking back on the year that just ended, in order to learn its lessons? Is it celebrating a (fairly arbitrary) fresh start?

It’s the most study-ful time of the year!

The holiday season is chock-full of lots of great stuff – drinking, eating, presents, friends, family, and more. Unfortunately, if you’re planning on taking the February LSAT, your holiday season will likely also be chock-full of studying.

Balancing LSAT studies with holiday festivities is tough. For one thing, the holidays are an infamously busy time – you probably have invitations galore to work functions, ugly sweater parties, and family get-togethers.
