You have 9 days to go before the December 1st LSAT. You have a lot riding on this, especially if this is your first time taking the exam and you’re applying for Fall 2008 law school admission.
Some tips on how to handle yourself from now until the LSAT date:
1. Enjoy yourself on Thanksgiving Day. Be with family. Remember what is really important in life. Put things in perspective.
2. On Friday, get back to studying. You have one week left to make a difference.
3. This week, LSAT is your priority. Don’t do anything else for your applications (other than sending in transcripts and arranging letters of rec).
4. Get lots of sleep and eat healthy foods.
5. Kick butt on Saturday during the LSAT.
6. On Sunday, grab some coffee, and get to work on your resume, personal statement, diversity statement or other optional essays, and start filling out the LSAC Common Application Form. Keep the process moving forward.
7. Continue this effort for about 2.5 weeks while you wait for your score. Then, solidify your schools list and submit those applications as they are ready.
