Tonight’s the Deadline to Sign Up for the November 2018 LSAT!

The weather is getting gloomier, the days are getting shorter, and summer is clearly in the rearview. I, for one, am gearing up for a hearty helping of seasonal affective disorder. And for those of you thinking about taking the LSAT, I have one more bit of cheery news: the deadline to sign up for the November LSAT is tonight at 11:59 pm Eastern.


Why Did LSAC Get Rid of the Late Registration Period?

Last week, the unpredictable folks at the Law School Admission Council announced that, starting with the upcoming February 2018 LSAT, there would no longer be a late registration period.

What is the late registration period, you ask? Well, before this positively seismic change from LSAC, there used to be two deadlines to sign up for the LSAT. First

Don’t Forget … Today’s the Regular Registration Deadline for the September LSAT

It’s August, illustrating once again that time continues its inexorable march. Soon the leaves will wither and die on the branch, carpeting the earth until they are hidden by a soft layer of snow. Every day, we grow older, inching incrementally closer to the grave.

Oh yeah, it also means that today is the regular registration deadline for the September LSAT.

LSAT Deadlines Abound

LSAT-related withdrawals are never fun. Be they alcohol withdrawals, from your most recent stress-induced bender, or Adderall withdrawals, from that extra boost you insist you need, or a test registration withdrawal itself, it’s important to recognize you’re not in for a walk in the park. Today we’ll be covering the last of these three, in line with our expertise and with the fact that no one here at Blueprint is in a position to throw shade at you for an enthusiastic expression of tequila appreciation.

As many of you know, today is the last day to withdraw your registration with a (partial) refund. Unfortunately, some of your fee has already been absorbed by the LSAC bureaucracy, but it’s still good to get a chunk back if you bail on the test. Note that if you decide to withdraw today you’ll need to fax this form to the LSAC, rather than mail it so that they receive it in time.

Looming LSAT Deadlines Mean Decisions

If you plan on taking the June LSAT, you should know that some important deadlines are coming up:

Registration Deadline: May 1st (that’s today!)
Late Registration Deadline: May 13th
Test Center Change by Mail, Phone, or Fax: May 13th
Test Center Change Online: May 15th
Test Date Change by Mail, Phone, or Fax: May 22nd
Test Date Change Online: May 24th
LSAT Registration Refunds (partial only): May 13th
Withdraw LSAT Registration – No Refund: June 7th

If you decide to withdraw or reschedule, your next chance to take an LSAT is October – still plenty of time to get applications in for the 2015-2016 cycle, but certainly later in the rolling admissions process.

Are You Ready for the June LSAT?

The June 2015 LSAT regular registration deadline is May 1, 2015. That’s a week from today. For those of you who haven’t registered yet, you might be feeling a little hesitant to pull the trigger. After all, the test is roughly six weeks away, and it seems like there’s still so much studying to do (or at least it did to me). Is it even possible to tell whether you’ll be ready by test day?

There are definitely a couple of ways to know if you’re not ready:

1. You haven’t started studying yet.
I know barely anyone who didn’t start studying at least two or three months before the test and got the score they wanted. These are the same test-taking savants who got perfect SAT scores without studying at all. If you’re this kind of person: congratulations. Also, this post probably isn’t for you.

February LSAT Deadline Weekend

Some important LSAT deadlines are coming up: the deadline to change your test center or test date is this Sunday, by midnight Eastern Time. That’s if you do it online. If you’re stuck in the 90’s and need to do it by mail, phone, or facsimile, then LSAC needs to receive your request by today. Also, if you’re stuck in the 90s, maybe it’s time to donate that flannel shirt. Somewhere there’s a hipster in need.

Let’s start with the test center change deadline. If nothing good was available when you registered for the LSAT, take a look. Maybe something better has opened up in the mean time. You’ll have to pay a $37 fee to change ($36 in Canada), but that’s well worth it if it saves you a bunch of stress on test day.

TODAY is the Last Day to Register for the December LSAT

Hear ye, hear ye! Ye olde town crier proclaimed crappy by all!

Oh wait. I mean…

Hear ye, hear ye! Today is the last day to register for the December LSAT!

That’s right, the inexorable march of time has led us to another LSAT registration deadline. Today is not only the final day test-takers are able to register for the December administration, but it’s also the final day that anyone already registered can receive a partial refund.

We’ve already talked about what these deadlines might mean to you, but now that we’ve reached the point of no return it behooves you to really examine where you’re at in your LSAT prep.
