The Weekend Before the June LSAT: What to Do Now?

The June LSAT is three days away. In honor of all your pain and suffering, the LSAT blog is bringing you a support group for June LSAT prep survivors: Remaining Calm, Together.

If you’d like to share something with the group, leave us a comment. This is a safe place. Put on some flute music and relax.

You’re Done Prepping for the June LSAT

You did everything you could to prepare, two more days of frantic LSAT cramming will only hurt. Instead, give your brain two days to marinate and relax. Take a first-world shower. Bring a beer or two. Channel your inner Type B personality. It’s almost over.

I’ve seen a number of students improve their LSAT scores after a well-deserved break from studying. I’ve also seen too many students crash by pounding away at their LSAT prep tests until the last minute.

Take this weekend to return to peak mental and physical form. Give yourself a break. You deserve it.

You Are Not Alone

Everyone has irrational doubts and fears about taking the LSAT. “Did I do enough Necessary Assumption questions?” “What if I have a bubbling mishap?” “Should I wear adult diapers?”

Whenever you find yourself imagining catastrophes just think, “The June LSAT will feel just like another practice LSAT.” And it will. Five sections. Thirty-five minutes each.

Low LSAT Scores Are Temporary

If you don’t do as well as you’d hoped on the June LSAT, you will sign up for the September LSAT and you’ll be just fine. You’ll still turn in all your law school applications early, and they’ll even let you explain why you did better. The June LSAT is a freebie.

Not Ready for the June LSAT? That’s okay.

If you aren’t scoring within two points of your ideal LSAT score, and you know you’ll have the time to study for the September LSAT, then you don’t have to take the June LSAT. You can withdraw your June LSAT registration. Withdrawing won’t reflect poorly on you at all.

Don’t let anyone else tell you that you’re ready. A lot of people get pressured into taking an LSAT too soon by their parents. They don’t know anything about the LSAT. You do. Go with what your practice LSATs are telling you.

Plan a Night Out (or In)

Keep it low key this weekend, but plan something for Monday night. It’ll give you something to look forward to and you deserve to let loose a bit. You can check back in with the LSAT blog to see our instant recap of the June LSAT.

Good luck everyone!

    Wouldn’t have been able to feel as confident as I do today if it wasn’t for Blueprint!! I had the best time and learned so much!! Even though I am weak on logic games, I am not nervous about the test anymore– I am still scoring in my ideal range. I have to keep a calm mind and “just do it”!

    My Blueprint class has me taking a practice test tomorrow morning, but I’m getting the sense that a practice test so close to test day may not actually be the best idea. Should I maybe skip this last one and take the next two days off?

      That’s a little different, Ali. Depends on how you feel. It could be a good chance for one last experience treating an LSAT like the actual thing. Plus, you can always take Sunday off. As long as you relax the day before the LSAT, you should be fine. If you’re still worried, contact your course manager to discuss. Good luck!
