You've prepped. You've stressed. You've broken multiple sweats. You've taken practice LSAT tests until your fingers are permanently positioned in the pencil-holding position.
You're prepared to take the LSAT this Saturday, October 6. Right?
Here are some things to consider before taking the October LSAT:
- When you take official practice LSAT tests, are you within 5 points of the LSAT score you want?
- Are you comfortable with every type of LSAT question?
- Are you able to take a 5-section LSAT in 175 minutes?
If your answer to all of these question is a resounding "YES!" then go ahead - you ready to go!
If your answer to these questions is a feeble "No...." then perhaps waiting for the December LSAT is a better bet for you. It would be much better to get a higher score in December, then to take the October test and fall short of the score you want.
P.S. Don't worry about taking it in December if you're hoping for a fall admission. Your scores will get to you in time!
