After taking the December LSAT – 3 tips
You took the December LSAT today? My three most important tips:
1. DO NOT SPEND TIME TODAY ON DISCUSSION BOARDS. If you feel good walking out of the test, don’t change your opinion of your own performance based on what the mob says on discussion boards. Why would you trust total (anonymous) strangers over your own instincts? Instead of fueling hits to Law School Discussion and Top-Law-Schools today, rent a guilty pleasure movie (or download it, I’m sounding my age by saying you have to “rent” it), enjoy a glass of wine, and only surround yourself with people who are supportive of your endeavors.
2. Thinking about canceling your LSAT score? I’ve written quite a bit on that topic since starting this blog. (I can answer a few questions in the comments section, but can’t give specific advice about whether you should cancel within the blog format. There are just too many factors to consider.) Please also remember that taking the February LSAT is less than ideal for Fall admission.
3. I know that LSAC said you’d get your scores in January. And they might be telling you the truth. But last year scores were released on Dec. 21st. Just keep this in mind so you’re mentally prepared to submit all of your apps before the end of the month.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and tell your friends who plan to apply for Fall 2010 admission to take the June or October LSAT so they don’t have to go through this agony.
