June 2018 Post-LSAT Carnival

With another LSAT cycle behind us, it’s time for a roundup of the very best that the internet (well, mostly LSAT takers on Reddit) have to say about the June 2018 exam! Since this is not my first time scrolling through LSAT discussion forums, I can tell you that this week, just like any post-LSAT week, is mainly made up of the most earnest of students, engaging in the post-LSAT tradition of comparing the general topics of the exam in order to deduce which of their own sections was the Experimental (and if you’re a June ’18 LSAT taker who doesn’t know what I mean about using internet forums to figure out which sections were Experimental, get online and see for yourself). So what I present below are the most unique internet discussions from the June test, which also just might make you feel better about your own exam.

New Law School Rankings Are Out, But Should They Matter to You?

There’s a new law school ranking out this week, and it’s not the dominant and ubiquitous U.S. News & World Report Law School Rankings. Rather, Above the Law has released their own yearly law school rankings: The Above the Law Top 50 Law School Rankings of 2018.

How the Actual LSAT Compares to Practice Exams

If you signed up for the June ’18 LSAT, your exam is just 10 days away. That’s not even long enough to binge-watch every season of Supernatural. Let’s assume you’ve done everything right up to this point in your studies: drilled down the fundamentals, made your way through the curriculum of each section type and completed multiple practice exams under exam-day conditions. But speaking for all of the law school-bound perfectionists eager to use every opportunity to prepare for the exam, I can tell you that there are some things about your official, LSAC-administered LSAT that just won’t be the same as what you practice. The best you can do now is to read about the particularities of Test Day and give yourself the time to get mentally ready for this oh-so-unique experience.

It’s a chance to prove to others how smart you are … but usually it ends with you feeling annoyed at the person testing you. No, I’m not talking about the LSAT. I’m talking about riddles!

What You Need to Know About Law School Scholarships

In 2012, President Obama told a group of college students: “Check this out, all right? I’m the president of the United States. We only finished paying off our student loans about eight years ago.” That means the President and First Lady were well into their careers, with a combined resume of civil rights attorney, law professor, politician, author, nonprofit director, dean of students, big-law lawyer, and more before they paid off their law school and undergrad loans in their forties. If you needed a clear picture of how law school loans could hang over you, even throughout a successful career … there you go. During my own law school application process, I was deeply concerned about how law school loans could inhibit me from pursuing a public interest law career, but I’m here to share my own success in the law school scholarship application process to encourage you to take advantage of the same programs.

The Interview Tips You Need on Your Way to Law School

Interviews — they’re a necessary part of any career, and particularly in the career of an aspiring lawyer. My own law school application adventure included numerous interviews related directly to my law school apps, and later on for scholarships. You reach a point where interviewing really does become a better experience and you learn something about what it takes to be truly effective when you have your moment to shine.

Avoiding the Lonely Lawyer Trap Begins in Law School

A recent study from the Harvard Business Review found that lawyers were in the loneliest profession. And while this info might make you think twice about choosing a career in the law, those of us who are determined to stick with a legal career should still be asking, where does this issue of lonely lawyers come from?
