Stop studying for the LSAT right now. Seriously.


Blog-STOPI know you’re studying right now. The test is this weekend.


Seriously. It’s time to give it a rest. Finish up what you’re doing (hopefully, it’s reviewing an outline). Quickly. And then put it away.

Take this brief time off.

Seriously. Do something relaxing. Get a massage. Watch a movie. See your friends and family – they’re probably worried about you.

The LSAT is very much a skills-based test. While you might be able to cram for a bio test, where you’re simply regurgitating information, the LSAT doesn’t work that way. Your performance on game day is going to come from skills that took days, weeks, months to develop. One more day of studying, especially right before the exam, is counterproductive.

You need to go in on Saturday relaxed, rested, and ready to go.

So put the book down. You’ve got this. 📝
