October 2013 LSAT – The Time to Start is Now

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.

The Morning Cometh: Reaction to the 2013 June LSAT

Last year’s June LSAT saw the surprise introduction of two-page Logic Games. In retrospect, that’s a tough act to follow. It’s been a day since this year’s June LSAT, and this time there were no such surprises. Everything went pretty much according to expectation.

I’ve heard from a number of students who took the June LSAT (as well as checked out yesterday’s 2013 June LSAT Instant Recap) and no one I’ve talked to was too surprised by anything on the test. With a few small exceptions, the consensus seems that it was a typical LSAT.

The Logical Reasoning sections from yesterday’s June LSAT seem to have been fairly unremarkable in difficulty. There were easy questions, medium questions and hard questions, as there always are. Some rare question types made appearances: crux questions continue their recent streak, and if you though agree questions were dead, they were only just hibernating.

LSAC Contraband: Don’t Bring These Items to the June LSAT

Entering your June LSAT test center next week is going to feel a lot like entering a foreign country. You’re going to have to present them with your LSAT admissions ticket, show them your photo ID, and have your bag searched for contraband.

Here’s the full list of what you can’t bring into the June LSAT test center:

• electronic timers of any kind
• digital watches, alarm watches, beeping watches, calculator watches
• cell phones, pay phones, beepers, pagers, personal digital assistants (PDAs)
• personal computers
• calculators

7 LSAT Prep Lessons to Take Away From the Indy 500

This past Sunday was an exciting day for motor racing fans. Two of the year’s most prestigious races — the Indianapolis 500 and its much richer European cousin, the Monaco Grand Prix — were held on the same day. Monaco was pretty disappointing, but the Indy 500 delivered drama, excitement, and a few lessons for June LSAT test-takers.

LSAT Prep Lesson I to Learn From the Indy 500: Walk the track before race day

Many of the top drivers in the Indy 500 will walk the track before any racing goes down so they can get to know the track better, feel more comfortable, and spot any potential problems. You should do the same with your LSAT test center. Before LSAT test day you should visit your LSAT test center to locate exactly where your exam will be.

Final June LSAT Registration Deadline Today: Are You Ready?

You must register through the LSAC’s website or by phone by midnight tonight if you want to take the June LSAT. If you can come up with the correct diagram* for the contrapositive of the last sentence, you might be in good shape for the June LSAT, but there are some other skills you should have learned by now, as well.

What You Should Know if You’re Ready for the June LSAT

Your best practice LSAT score is still ahead of you. We still have three and a half weeks of prep time for the June LSAT. So, you shouldn’t let your current practice LSAT scores determine whether or not you’re ready to merely register for the June LSAT. At this point you’re probably still struggling with timing. If your accuracy is pretty high (the ratio of correct answer choices to questions attempted), you’re going to enjoy a pretty sizable LSAT score improvement once you get your timing down.

Beat Today’s June LSAT Early Registration Deadline

If you’re planning to take the June LSAT but you haven’t registered for it yet, stop reading and go register through LSAC right now. Anyone who registers for the June LSAT after 11:59 p.m. will have to pay a $69 late fee. That’s like letting LSAC steal 260 chicken nuggets from you.

For the June LSAT Fence-Sitters

Not sure you want to take the June LSAT? Well, here are some things you have to think about:

First, the June LSAT is the only test administration offered at 12:30 p.m., the rest are offered at 8:30 a.m. So, if you’re not a morning person the June LSAT is for you.
Second, getting the LSAT out of the way by June will give you plenty of time to focus on getting some awesome recommendation letters and putting together a sweet personal statement.

Act Fast or Risk Being Waitlisted at a June LSAT Test Center

Over the last couple years, there’s been a lot of talk about how quickly the population of LSAT test-takers has declined. Despite all that, many aspiring law students are finding that their LSAT test centers of choice are already full for the June LSAT. Is there going to be a rebound in the LSAT test-taking population, or has LSAC adjusted to the trend by making fewer seats available? If you’re locked out of the LSAT, it doesn’t really matter what the cause is.

What can you do about this? If there is, in fact, an LSAT test center open within 100 miles of your domicile, you get two choices: you can take what LSAC offers you or you can hold off on registering.

If you decide you don’t want to take the exam at some distant LSAT test center, it’s possible that if you check back later something closer will open up.

It’s Time to Transition into June LSAT Prep Mode

Now that February LSAT scores are out, the June LSAT looms ahead. If you’re planning on taking the June LSAT, it’s okay if you haven’t done much of anything yet. As time goes by, your inaction will become less and less OK. Kind of like a 40-year-old showing up to work in a high schooler’s wardrobe: what once looked perfectly normal starts to work against you.

First of all: go to LSAC’s website and register for the June LSAT. Do it as soon as you can. The earlier you register, the better the choice of June LSAT testing centers you’ll have. Getting your pick of June LSAT test centers now will keep you from having to spend the night before the June LSAT in some godforsaken motel by the freeway somewhere, listening to the regular clientele entertain their clientele. More importantly, once you’re registered for the June LSAT you can circle June 10 on your calendar as the day you’ll take the June LSAT.
