If you’re taking a prep course for the October LSAT, it’ll probably be starting sometime next month (or thereabouts). Once it begins, you’ll have an incredible amount of work to do. Studying for the LSAT is one of the most rigorous things you’ll ever have the pleasure of undertaking. Your social life is going to be going into hibernation for a few months, and you very well might end up with a vitamin D deficiency due to lack of sunlight. It’s gonna be great. But you’ll get through it all if you keep your eye on the prize, namely an awesome LSAT score.
But what should you do between now and the beginning of class?

Welcome everyone to the hardest decision you’ll have to make this week: whether or not to cancel your LSAT. Today is the last day to cancel your score. Bright side: you won’t have to worry about it anymore after this. Dark, foggy side: you have to make the decision today, and you have to actually fax your decision to LSAC. We weren’t even aware fax machines still existed, but so it goes.
If you’re still looking for advice on whether or not cancel the test, you can check out Jodi Triplett’s post from earlier in the week or check out the featured video on the right hand side of the screen. Good luck!
We did it, guys!! The weight has been lifted and we are free! Months and months of logic games, logical reasoning, and reading comprehension passages finally paid off for about four hours. It’s all over and you’ll never have to answer questions about the author’s attitude towards dark matter, Canadian legal developments, or Native American basket weaving again. Unless you have some sick addiction to the LSAT or something and you need a fix like some logic junkie.
My plan to not actually remember taking the test didn’t pan out, so I guess I owe the LSAT a big “Thanks for the memories!” The other upside is that you, dear reader, get to read about my crazy, gut-wrenching, triumphant day.
Six days, people. That’s how long you get to decide whether or not you should cancel your LSAT score. Six days full of sleepless nights, self-doubt, and—in particularly egregious cases—more boxed wine than a human should probably imbibe. If you took the LSAT on October 9th, you need to decide by October 15th.
Let’s first all share a moment of silence for everyone who is contemplating canceling their score. It’s not the outcome anyone wants after 2-3 months of studying, and we should respect that. One. Two. Three. Moving on.

Hello out there to my fellow October 2010 LSAT comrades. I sincerely hope that everyone is in relatively good spirits now that the exam is behind you and you have had some time to decompress. I would like to share my own LSAT experience with you, as well as compare this administration with the June administration (without ruffling any feathers over at the LSAC about their intellectual property, of course).
I signed up to take the October LSAT in Orange County because Saddleback College was the closest “Blueprint Certified” testing site that had availability.
Tomorrow is the big day, so we at MSS have concocted a little poetic inspiration for you to digest this evening. With all apologies to Dylan Thomas.
Do Not Go Gentle into the 120′s Plight
So by now you should have completed most of your studying. If you’re planning on taking a practice test today, I’d probably recommend against it, but that’s a judgment call. If you do any kind of studying tomorrow (Friday), however, I will come to wherever you are and viciously berate you.
That said, there is something important to consider for test day that we have refrained from mentioning thus far in our blog preview of the October LSAT: what to pack. Now, you’re not going on a three day trip to Flagstaff, so you don’t need to worry about bringing extra underwear, unless there’s a particularly scary logic game. But there are a number of items that are of equal importance. Without further ado…
Well guys, this is it. It’s been quite the ride with you, but now the countdown begins in earnest. We’re a couple of days away from the October LSAT, which is A) exciting B) terrifying C) meh D) HELL YEAH or E) all of the above. I’m spending most of my time down there in option E where I’m either gung-ho, going in with both guns blazing or wishing I could click my heels and it would be June again. But not June in Kansas, because I’ve been there and done that and it wasn’t my cup of tea.
All of that said, I know I’m going to walk into the test with my head held high knowing that I did everything humanly possible to prepare. The rest is up to my ability to focus and maybe a little luck. But more importantly, I’m going to walk into the test and have fun with it. Logic games have become fun. Reading comprehension makes me smirk when I’ve read a similar article outside of the LSAT and when I can find typos. Logical reasoning can be downright hilarious when I realize just how bad the argument really is.
Saturday’s a big day. If you’re reading this, then you’re probably going to take the LSAT on Saturday. We are as of now a mere 96 hours (give or take) away from the test. During these last few days you want to wind down the studying, and get in your happy place. We’ve already gone over what you should be doing in this final week, so I’m here to talk about what the actual test day is going to look like.
I’ve taken the LSAT twice myself, and have had hundreds of students who have done the same, so I should be able to give you a decent idea of what’s going to happen. It’s going to be the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to you. Make sure you go to bed early, wake up early, and…

At this moment, there are only five days left until the October LSAT. (Pause here for a gorilla riot and sounds of muffled sobbing). But as close as that may seem, five days can also feel like an eternity. After all, there’s a lot you can do over the course of 120 hours. You could read the entire Twilight series, watch every season of LOST, or make 5/7 of the world if you were an old testament God. But what should you be doing for the LSAT in the next five days?
One thing you’re not going to do in the next five days is learn more information. Like a kitchen sponge floating in a bathtub full of grey post human wash water, you’ve absorbed just about all the new information you’re going to absorb. Your LSAT prep must now move into the realm of review and mental preparation.
