You Bombed the September LSAT… What Now?

We here at Most Strongly Supported hope that all of our readers awaiting a September LSAT score received good news this week. However, sometimes – for whatever reason – a score might fall short of your hopes and expectations. If you are in that unfortunate position, you may be trying to decide what your next steps should be.

This post is for you, my friend.

Study Tips for Retaking the December LSAT

You took the LSAT once. Now you need to take it again. It goes without saying that you’d like to do better this time. What about all that material you used the first time? Here’s how you can make the most of your old prep material, and plan your attack for the next test.

Your first step should be to make a quick inventory of the LSAT PrepTests you haven’t touched any of the questions from. Set aside a bunch of these, preferably the more recent ones, to use as timed practice tests. Since you haven’t seen these questions, they’ll be the best indication of where you’re really scoring. Then make a schedule and spread these tests out out between now and test day.

That leaves all the LSAT questions you’ve done already. You might think that you’ve spoiled these questions by doing them; that they’re devoid of the worth they once had. You’d be wrong.
