Today, LSAC made the probably difficult, definitely inconvenient-for-many-law-school-hopefuls, but, in our decidedly non-expert opinion, inevitable and socially responsible decision to cancel the March 30 LSAT. You can read their statement here.
Test anxiety is real, and the LSAT brings about an entire cornucopia of emotions. It’s understandable; you’ve spent months preparing for this test that will determine where you spend the next few years of year life and possibly even who will hire you after graduation. Plus, you really don’t want to retake the LSAT and go through that endeavor all over again (but you might have to). Walking into your test room as prepared as possible is one way to deal with LSAT test anxiety, but there are other techniques to keep you cool, calm, and collected before, during, and after the LSAT.
For today’s post we brought in recently licensed marriage and family therapist Megan Riley to share her thoughts on controlling test day anxiety.
