When Will September 2017 LSAT Scores Be Released? Our Prediction!

Posted by Jon Denning on

September 2017 LSAT takers have one burning question in mind: When exactly will my score be released?

Per LSAC, September 2017 LSAT scores are slated to be released on Thursday, October 12th, 2017. However, past LSAC score-release trends indicate that scores are almost always released earlier than the official date (except when weather conditions have interfered with the original test dates, as was the case with the February 2013 LSAT, for instance). So for a typical administration even though you still have to wait to get your score, you usually don't have to wait until the score release date designated by the test makers. 

So when will you have it?

LSAT Anxiety and the Power of Positive Thinking

Posted by Jon Denning on

With the LSAT fast approaching, I want to briefly step away from talk of test concepts, and remind everyone of one of the most important, and (sadly) most-overlooked, components of test success: a positive mental outlook. That is, at some point in the next 10 days or so you should feel as though your conceptual preparation is complete, and your focus should begin to shift instead towards preparing yourself mentally for an amazing test day experience. Here are a few keys tips that will help get you mentally ready in the days ahead.

The Ultimate Guide to the LSAT Writing Sample

Posted by Jon Denning on

Your LSAT score is the result of your performance on a predetermined collection of multiple-choice tasks: two scored sections of Logical Reasoning, one scored section of Reading Comprehension, and one scored section of Analytical Reasoning (better known as Logic Games). In addition to those four, there will also be a fifth, unscored multiple-choice section known as the Experimental, which will present another of the three types—either a third LR, second RC, or second LG. These five sections can appear in any order, and are largely unpredictable as you work your way through the exam.

But that's not the entirety of your test day.

What many fail to realize, or at the very least fail to fully understand, is that official LSATs also contain a sixth section, given in a separate test booklet and administered after the completion of the five sections described above: the Writing Sample. And it's this final section that I want to talk about today.

Struggling with the September LSAT? Is December Too Late?

Posted by Dave Killoran on

One of the most common questions we receive is whether applying early with a September LSAT score is a better strategy than taking the December LSAT and then applying with what would likely be a better score (since December allows you more than two extra months of studying). Many students think the advantage of applying early is so great that it is better to just take the September LSAT even if that test doesn't produce their best LSAT score. But that is not the case at all, so let's talk about what to do if you either don't feel great about the upcoming September LSAT or if you take September and it doesn't go well (hint: you are in better shape than you think!).
