Your Plan for the Last Week of Studying for the LSAT

I recently started the process of training for a marathon. As someone who has never done much distance running, I’ve been doing my best to follow a set training plan. The plan generally involves one progressively longer run per week and several short to medium runs. However, in the final couple weeks, the training plan tapers off and the intensity reduces. This is especially true in the last week of training prior to the race, which has just a couple, shorter runs to get you ready for the big day.

For many, the Fourth of July offered a welcome reprieve from work, diets, and thinking about the LSAT (though not from the heat, in many parts of the country).

Retaking the LSAT? Here are your next steps

Imagine yourself a month after your LSAT — you’re refreshing your email for the 50th time that day, anxiously awaiting your score, and when you finally get it, those three digits don’t add up to the LSAT score you hoped for.

For some of you who recently took the February LSAT, you don’t have to imagine. Maybe you recognized going into the exam that you were underprepared. Maybe you were shocked that the score wasn’t nearly as high as your practice scores. Either way, what are you going to do about it?

You need to make flashcards for the LSAT, but not many.

That said, there are some things that you must memorize for the LSAT, and there’s nothing better for memorization than that bit of 1st century BC technology, the flashcard. Here’s a list of things that should make it onto flashcards and into your grey matter:

Balancing Studying for the LSAT with School

The October LSAT about six weeks away. You’ve mastered ordering games and are a pro at linking conditionals. But you’re still trying to get your head around all of the flaw categories and your timing is way off. You’re thinking it’s time to ramp up your study schedule. But there’s also this other item looming on your calendar: school.

Your senior year of college is about to start, and you have a lot of to-dos. You have to get the mini-fridge out of storage, which is a total hassle because Gary will say you can borrow his car but then he’ll totally flake on you all Sunday, and you’ll be like, “What the heck, Gary, my brews are only getting warmer over here.” Then you’ll have to decide whether you’re going to stick with the top-bun you’ve been rocking over the summer. Sure, Gary will give you flak about it, but what does Gary know about style? The guy wears Gap jeans.
