How to Choose an LSAT Test Date

Choosing your LSAT test date is like falling in love. How do you know you’re ready?

You just know. When you know you know.

But actually that’s kind of paradoxical, because if you’re presupposing that you know, of course in that case you would know. But what does that even mean? Couldn’t you think that you know, even though you don’t know, because you’ve never known so you don’t actually know what it feels like to know?

Luckily, there are other guides you can use to determine when you’ll be ready to take the LSAT. Many people are probably wrestling with this question as the deadline to register for the October test is now just a month away. Take the October test or wait until December? Here are some factors to consider:

Catching Up if Your LSAT Class has Already Started

Here we are, the October LSAT is ten weeks away, and Blueprint LSAT Prep classes have mostly started. (See below for a list of classes that started this weekend.) Before you despair and ask your friends to keep sharp objects away from you, let us reassure you: It’s not too late to sign up! Even if the class of your dreams started over the weekend, you’ll be able to catch up, no sweat. Here’s how.

The first class session is a practice test. If you miss this session, you won’t miss out on any material you need to learn. You can take the test on your own instead, timing sections for yourself.

The process is quite simple. Find a quiet place to work. Open Practice Exam One (you can print the test and answer sheet from your myBlueprint online account if you haven’t received your books), set a timer for 35 minutes, and do the first section. When time’s up, stop work.

LSAT Test Day Horror Stories

Over the years, I’ve had lots of experience with the LSAT. It’s been an uncomfortably large part of my life, even. As prep for the October LSAT really gets into swing, here are some true stories about what you’re all looking forward to: LSAT test day. Make of them what you will.

1. What does it mean to pass the LSAT?

Our first story comes from one of my own experiences taking the LSAT. After keeping us outside for an hour waiting for a fax from LSAC that never came, the proctors finally seated us in a big law school lecture hall. While going through the test day instructions, one proctor repeatedly said that they were being strict only because they needed to follow the rules, and “we really hope you all pass.” Again and again, “we really hope you pass,” while every single test taker in the room pulled an eye muscle from rolling them too hard.
