It’s the day before the LSAT…now what?
You’ve got one more day, one more night. About 24 hours. Just enough time to drive you crazy before sitting down for the biggest test of your entire life.
What are you going to do with your last day before you take the LSAT?
If you’re smart, you’re going to have a strategy to maximize every minute—and that means getting organized, eating well and not studying at all.
Here’s a look at five things you should absolutely do the day before you take the LSAT and largely determine what your future might hold:
Put down the books
With only one day to go before the big test, there’s not a lot of studying you can do that will improve your score at all. Instead of studying, take some time to relax. Watch a movie, take a nap and take it easy.
The last thing you want to do is show up at the testing center and realize that you’ve forgotten your admission ticket or don’t have your photo ID. The day before the test, take an hour or so and get organized. Double check your forms to make sure they’re filled out correctly. Put your photo ID in a clear plastic bag along with your admission ticket and your forms.
Go check out the test site
Being familiar with the test site can help take some of the stress out of your experience. Take a drive over to the center so you know the directions. Time it and plan to add an extra 30 minutes to the commute (just in case traffic is congested). Try to check out the actual chairs and desk space, so you know exactly what to expect.
Make sure you eat three hearty and healthy meals the day before the test. Get enough protein, eat plenty of vegetables and hydrate. Don’t eat a lot of spicy food, which could upset your stomach, and try to avoid drinking too much (if any) alcohol, which could affect your mind.
Go to bed early
Nothing is more important than a good night’s sleep. Make sure you go to bed early and plan to get eight solid hours of sleep. Sleep is every bit as important to your test-day success as any and all of the other factors listed above. Good luck!
