How to Use the Weekend before the June LSAT


It’s the weekend before the June LSAT. What to do? What to do? Pretty much nothing. You should definitely take Sunday off, but I think it’s probably a good idea to take most or all of Saturday off too.

You cannot cram for the LSAT. There are precious few things to memorize for the LSAT (exceptions: game types, flaws, and formal logic indicators) and if you didn’t memorized them at least a month ago, trying to do so now won’t help much. Over the past several months you’ve trained yourself to think like a logician. You need to take a break. Try to relax by doing whatever it is that you normally do to relax. At the very least, get plenty of sleep.

Once you’ve put some distance between yourself and the LSAT you’ll be in better shape to think about whether you should actually go through with taking the thing. Remember, you have until 11:59 PM Eastern Time on Sunday to withdraw from the LSAT.

Have you made a trip out to your test center yet? You should try to visit your test center tomorrow, just to make sure you can find it, and scope out parking for Monday. It also wouldn’t be a bad idea to actually go inside one of the rooms, and do a section or two from a practice LSAT.

If you’ve already visited your test center, the only thing you have left to do is gather some supplies and documents for test day.

To help you relax, think about the fact that most law schools will only count your highest LSAT score. And if things go horribly wrong on LSAT day, you can always cancel before you get your score. Remember, September is still early in the application cycle to take an LSAT. You don’t have to take the June test, and even if you do, June won’t be your last chance to rock it.
