A few last-minute reminders for the LSAT

1. Come Up for Air

You've studied for months, heeded the wisdom of countless experts, and taken practice tests. You've done everything you can. Just don't overdo it in the final stretch. Take a walk. Clear your head.


2. Confirm Your Test Location

Check your LSAC account to make sure there haven't been any last-minute changes to your testing location or time.

3. The LSAT Checklist

The LSAT can take up to 7 hours, so don't forget to bring the critical items that could make or break your success on the test.

Admission Ticket, Photo ID, #2 Wooden Pencils, Aspirin/Other Health-Related Needs, Water, and a Sweater/Sweatshirt (wihtout a hood)

Things You Can't Bring

Electronic devices—that's the big one. No cell phones, digital watches, computers, iPods, etc. If they catch you with one, your day is over. Doesn't matter if it's in your pocket or not. Also, no books, mechanical pencils, pens, bags of any kind, hats, or shirts with hoods. For more information, check the LSAC website.

4. Breathe Deeply

Get a good night's sleep, eat a good breakfast, etc., but none of those things really keep you calm on test day. Some folks meditate or do breathing exercises in the morning and between test sections to stay focused. Just find a way that works for you.

5. Keep It All in Perspective

It's a test. A really important test. And of course you want to do well. We certainly want you to do well. But in the end, it's not a measure of who you are or who you'll be. Persistence will take you further in this life than most things, so if you have to, just take the LSAT again in September. But we know you won't have to.

One Last Reminder...
