Your September LSAT Packing List

The big day is almost here. In less than 48 hours, you’ll be taking the LSAT.

WHAAAAAT?!

Hopefully you’re feeling pretty confident, even if you’re nerves are tingling. At this point, there’s not a lot you can do to boost your score besides going in with a positive attitude and a fresh mind. So try to minimize the stress, and maximize the motivational mirror speeches.

If you’re really hankering for a way to feel accomplished and ensure you’re at your best on LSAT day, get your packing out of the way early. Nothing in the universe could possibly be worse than if you forgot your ID or admission ticket, and weren’t allowed to take the exam after months of prep.

Withdrawing from the LSAT: Nerves or Warning Signs?

Two days before I took the LSAT, I scored lower on a practice exam than I had in months. I was so mortified, I started thinking about postponing until December. I imagine that some of you may be facing a similar dilemma.

There’s a clear difference between common nerves and legitimate reasons to withdraw from this Saturday’s exam. This post is meant to help you figure out if it is in your best interest to go forward with the September LSAT, or whether you would be better served by postponing. I am going to lay out a few clear warning signs that would warrant taking the test at a later date.

Warning Sign #1: Consistently Scoring Below Your Target

At this point, you probably have a pretty clear idea of the LSAT score you hope to achieve.
