Learn About Prescriptive Statements, That’s Doctor’s Orders

If you want to succeed at the LSAT, you really should get to know prescriptive statements. That’s a prescriptive statement — a claim about what “should” or “ought to” be done. These kinds of claims come up a lot on the LSAT and it’s helpful to know what they mean. They also give you hints that certain other things might be going on. Let’s talk a bit about prescriptive statements.

Our Foolhardy Predictions for the December LSAT

We’re two days from the December LSAT, which can only mean one thing: LSAT Predictions! Clairvoyance is one of the LSAT’s favorite question topics, so it only makes sense that we put our powers to the test (no pun intended). Before we get going, the usual disclaimer: the predictions that follow aren’t based off of any insider knowledge about what’s going to be on the LSAT. They’re predictions. Nothing more, nothing less.

Does the LSAT let the right kind of people into law school?

A few days ago, the Internet algorithms that know all too much about me directed me to this Vice article about taking the LSAT with no prep. I read it quickly and chuckled at the test takers who had trouble following the somewhat onerous but not terribly complicated test day instructions. I was also amused but not surprised to learn that LSAC employs “secret shopper” test takers to make sure that the proctors enforce regulations. But ultimately I found it a relatively flimsy premise for an article and moved on with my oh-so-exciting weekend.

Southern California: RSVP to Southwestern’s Law Day

Are you a prospective law student? Will you be in the LA area November 11? If so, you don’t want to miss Southwestern’s Law Day. It’ll be at Southwestern from 1:30 to 6 pm, and if you go you’ll get a $400 discount off a Blueprint classroom course. You’ll also get your application fee to Southwestern waived. With all those discounts you might even be able to fly to LA for the event and still come out ahead. But don’t book your tickets without sending your RSVP — the event may be free but you do need to let them know you’re coming.
