There’s Only One Month Until the January LSAT?!

…but that’s plenty of time, if you follow this guide.
December 26 is known all over the globe as Boxing Day, but here at Blueprint, we know it for another reason: It marks exactly one month until the January 2019 LSAT. That means it’s time to set aside the presents, put down the cookies, and crack open those LSAT books again.
You can get a lot of studying done in a month, but you’ll want to make sure you’re making the most of it. Here are some things to add to your to-do list during this final month:
1. Upload your photo to your LSAC account
For the January LSAT, you must upload a photo of yourself to your LSAC account by January 18, so take a quick study break to make sure you’ve gotten that squared away. Be sure that your photo adheres to LSAC’s guidelines (also listed on the website), because they can be pretty strict about whether a photo is allowable or not.
2. Assess your weaknesses
Now that you’re getting down to the wire, it’s important to use your time as strategically as possible. If you haven’t taken a full practice test recently, take one in the near future, and use that to figure out where your time is best spent over this next month. If you’re still struggling with a particular question type or game setup, this is your chance to get more comfortable with it before test day.
3. Plan out your practice tests
You don’t need to figure out exactly when you’re going to take your remaining practice tests, but it makes sense to make a rough plan of when you’re going to take a test and which test you’ll take. For one thing, if you block out an afternoon for a practice test, you won’t find that you’ve accidentally filled up all your free time with underwater basket-weaving classes and Ultimate Frisbee practice. For another, if there are any practice tests you want to make sure you take — such as the most recently released tests, or ones with particularly notorious Logic Games sections — it helps ensure that you’ll have time for those tests.
