What to Do When You Don’t Feel Ready for a Fast-Approaching LSAT

At some point, somewhere in the two to four months before the date of an LSAT administration, you made a decision: you are going to take the LSAT. You create an LSAC account, part with 200 hard-earned US dollars, select a nearby test center, and reserve your spot to take the LSAT. And thus your studies began.

When Should I Take the LSAT?

As a tutor, one of the questions I’m asked at least a few times a month is, “How many times should I take the LSAT?” It’s usually accompanied by pleading eyes or, perhaps, a grounded sort of resignation that says, “I will do this as many times as I have to because I will not be beaten by some standardized test written by a bunch of nerds in suburban Philadelphia.” I applaud the spirit of the latter student, because I, too, spend much of my time doing things to spite nerds. But whether asked in desperation or from between squared shoulders, it’s a fair question. The answer, unfortunately, is “it depends.”

Getting Prepared for the Digital LSAT

Let’s say you planned on taking the LSAT this year … or, rather, you had a nebulous and ill-defined notion that you should take the LSAT this year … but you missed out on the January, March, and June exams. Then you’re either looking at the rapidly approaching and July exam, or if you missed that registration deadline, then the September or later.

Folding Practice Exams into Your Study Plan

You have decided to run a marathon … heaven knows why. The longest distance you’ve ever run is … maybe a couple miles? It’s hard to remember … you accomplished that athletic feat at a so-called “fun run” in middle school, and that was so long ago that it’s hard to remember the exact distance.

The Last Weekend Before the June LSAT Study Schedule

The fact that there’s only one weekend before the June 2019 LSAT must make you pretty nervous. Honestly, it makes me pretty nervous, and I don’t even have to take the test. Only one weekend — three-and-a-half days, if we’re being generous and including both Friday and Monday morning — separates you from this test.

Tips for the Last Week Before the June Exam

Happy Memorial Day! Now, if you’re taking the June LSAT, you would be forgiven if you forgot that this is Memorial Day. Especially given that the June test is — checks calendar — yikes, one week away. Instead of remembering those who served, you’re trying to remember all the common fallacies and whether the word “always” introduces a sufficient or necessary condition. Rather than spending the day, carefree, with your less-ambitious friends are spending their Memorial Day at beaches and barbecues, you’re here, looking at a screen. Trying to make sense of how to make that last score jump before the exam.

Your June LSAT Two-Month Study Plan

To those you taking the June 3 LSAT, let’s face a difficult truth: there are fifty-one days until the June exam. Sure, we should also tack on to those fifty-one days however many hours, minutes, and seconds you technically have left before you’ll take the exam. We can even round up to fifty-two, if you’d

One Month to Go Before the March LSAT

There’s just about a month to go until the March LSAT, and although that might sound like a terrifying proposition, a month is actually an eternity in LSAT time. No, not because time seems to stand still when you’re doing LSAT questions (or at least, not only for that reason) — but because a month allows you plenty of time to make significant improvements in your LSAT score, as long as you’re using your time wisely. Here’s how to use that final month to ace your LSAT.
