You’ve Got One Month Left to Register for the June LSAT

We’re one month away from the June LSAT registration deadline. If you think this is a lot of time, then you’re indulging in some false comfort.

You need to sign up early if you want to get a decent LSAT test center before they all fill up. Dilly dally, and you could get stuck with a hole in the wall three counties over with a former hall monitor for a proctor who just can’t wait to make your day resemble something out of a Turkish prison.

In the recent past, LSAT proctors – high on power and ineptitude – have written up students for innocently touching their pencils during the break, called time five minutes early, and confiscated analog wristwatches. On the other hand, a good LSAT proctor – usually a law student who’s slogged through an LSAT or three herself – will make your day a delight.

What Your First Practice LSAT Score Means for the Future

Scoring your first practice LSAT can be terrifying. Your initial LSAT score will probably be much lower than you were ready to deal with emotionally. I’ve had students who refused to score their first practice LSAT out of fear. But there’s really nothing to be afraid of.

What the LSAT Measures

Students who score poorly on their first practice LSAT will often think something like, “My friends and family must’ve been lying to me; I’m really kind of an idiot.”

The LSAT isn’t measuring how smart you are. The LSAT is measuring how good you are at a very narrow range of reasoning skills.

The February LSAT is Weird, But Weird Can Be Good

If you plan on taking the February LSAT, then today would be a good day to start studying. But, if you’re superstitious about doing anything on Friday the 13th, or you’re not sure about taking the February LSAT, then I have some advice for you.

The February LSAT is kind of weird. For all the other LSAT administrations you will have exactly one “experimental” section, but for the February LSAT the whole thing, in two ways, is “experimental.”

First, some of the content might be slightly weird or unusual. Maybe you’ll get a prompt that’s going to be hard to pin to a question type. Maybe a weird Logic Game intro will show up. Such things shouldn’t be a major issue for you. If anything truly weird or unusual comes up, it will be weird and unusual for everyone, and the LSAT score “curve” will reflect this.
