Taking the LSAT in Armenia

Posted by PowerScore Test Preparation on

Are you taking the LSAT in Armenia? The LSAT is taken by students planning to attend law schools in the US and Canada.  However, the test is administered across the globe, as the LSAT continues to spread internationally. (Check out this blog post we wrote a few years back about the LSAT abroad.)

In Armenia, the LSAT is offered in only one location: Yerevan, American University of Armenia.

While there is just one location option, the LSAT is offered in Armenia four times per year: in February, June, September/October, and December. A complete list of test dates and deadlines can be found here.

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

Posted by Jon Denning on

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

Per LSAC, February 2017 LSAT scores are slated to be released on Thursday, March 2nd, 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). So, even though you still have to wait to get your score, you probably won't have to wait until the score-release date designated by the test makers. 

So when will you have it?

Controlling Test Day Anxiety, NASA Style

Posted by Ron Gore on

I recently listened to the National Public Radio (NPR) podcast Fresh Air. They had a fascinating interview with a Canadian astronaut, Col. Chris Hadfield, who was promoting the release of his new book, An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth. Col. Hadfield is an interesting guy. From his Facebook description, he was "the first Canadian to walk in space, and it has recently been announced that he will be the first Canadian to command the international space station."

Advanced LSAT Guessing Strategy: Referring To Prior Answers

Posted by Dave Killoran on

In a perfect world, you'd never have to guess on any question while taking the LSAT. But, there are occasions where time simply runs out, and when that occurs you have to guess (especially because, unlike the SAT, there is no penalty for guessing on the LSAT). I've talked elsewhere about Basic LSAT Guessing Strategy, which is based on answer choice appearance probabilities. As that article discusses, historically some answers are more likely to appear than others, and you can often gain an advantage by knowing those tendencies when the occasion arises. But, are there other guessing strategies you can employ?

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.

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.
