Why We Love February for LSAT Test Prep

Start building your LSAT prep plan.

February is a month for roses, chocolates—and study schedules.

February is a funny month: It’s the shortest, yet it’s stuffed with holidays (especially during a Leap Year). This little month is big into celebrating—and with Valentine’s Day upon us, we thought it only appropriate to celebrate our love for winter LSAT prep. So, here are a few reason why we’re head over heels for February:

There’s plenty of time to get to know the test better

Now is an opportune moment to consider preparing for the June exam. In fact, three months or more is ideal for LSAT prep because it gives test takers plenty of flexibility to pace their study schedule slowly but steadily. This reduces the anxiety that can go along with a last-minute prep pinch.

Set a romantic date with a free online practice test and check your performance. By reviewing your strengths and weaknesses now, you’ll be better equipped to optimize your studying and avoid wasted time down the road. Pre-law students who plan their LSAT prep four months in advance and diagnose their problem areas are sure to feel stronger walking into Test Day.

Cold weather is the perfect match for LSAT prep

If you’re a cold weather hater, you may be thinking winter will last forever (or at least another six weeks), but dreading every snowflake won’t get you any closer to Test Day readiness. Prospective attorneys should instead recognize the long road to spring as a chance to achieve maximum effect with minimal stress.

Set a goal for yourself and spend some time snuggled up under a warm blanket with your LSAT prep book and a cup of tea in hand. Without all the distractions of summer fun, the midwinter weather gives you an excuse to lock in a focused study schedule and devote the hours you need to hit your target score.

A winter study schedule leaves room for summer fun

Valentine’s Day (as enchanting or as irritating as you may find it) celebrates love—and love is all about compromise. Sure, committing to study several times per week takes work, but the resulting glow of Test Day confidence—and a summer free of worry—is worth it.

Even if you’re commitment-averse and end up lingering past February to start their LSAT prep in the spring, you can still achieve speedy success and earn a winning score in June. With flexible Kaplan class schedules and convenient study formats at your disposal, there’s no reason you can’t plan effectively to ace the LSAT in early summer and reward yourself in the following weeks with a little sun, fun, and relaxation.
