Our Labor Day Sale Starts Now!

Back in the good old days, Labor Day marked the beginning of the school year. Labor Day reminded everybody to buy some new notebooks, put some aloe on their sunburns, and prepare for the academic season to start. For the subset of undergrads and members of the workforce applying to law school in the coming fall, it’s even more important to get ready, because the workload is about to become intense.

When You Need to Triage Your LSAT Studies

In a hospital, triage is about assigning degrees of urgency to different patients when there are too many to treat right away. But what does triage look like in the context of the LSAT?

Many LSAT students get to a point when they realize that they just won’t have time to master every possible topic the LSAT could throw at them. Instead of giving each topic equal time, the best thing this student can do is to assign highest priority to those LSAT topics which are most common and most important to success.

Increasing Your Speed on the LSAT

If you took the LSAT home with you overnight and worked on it as long as you needed, chances are you’d find yourself with a very impressive score. Unfortunately for many of us, it’s the speeded aspect of the exam that makes everything else about the LSAT more challenging: you need more time to read

Don’t Be Late to Our Early Bird Sale! It Ends Today!

In a way, there are two types of students who approach the LSAT: the early bird and the late comer. They may have the same goal in mind, but the early bird shows up on exam day refreshed, with plenty of time before the check in cut-off time. The late comer is the one that leaves their coffee on the roof of their car because they left for the exam without a minute to spare with a near-empty gas tank. The early bird will send out their law school applications in the fall in order to give themselves the best chance at admission, while the late comer will delay ’til the spring and then send out a haphazard essay to the wrong school.

Building Confidence for the LSAT

Confidence is essential to performing your best on the LSAT. You can put in the hours studying and enter the test equipped with optimal LSAT skills, but the way you feel about the material and yourself is the last piece you will still need in order to achieve your best score. No matter how a student has prepared for the test, there are still things they can do as their exam day nears to boost their test-day confidence and give themselves the best opportunity to succeed.

Where in the World Should You Go to Law School?

If there’s one thing that ev-ver-ry-body had an opinion on during my law school application process, it was the location where I should be going to school. Since even those outside the legal field can relate to this aspect of the law school decision, you’ll no doubt hear numerous opinions during your own application timeline. But the reasons for choosing a location can vary. Knowing the main reasons for choosing one location over another can highlight how important the location will be to your law school experience. Here are some location factors that will top any law student’s list:

If You’re Studying for the LSAT, Memorize this List

In an episode of Bob’s Burgers, Tina spends all night practicing a song and dance for her book report on Call of the Wild (which she didn’t read).”You’ll be fine,” says Tina’s mom. “Just remember all the steps … memorize all the lyrics … and don’t mess it up.” For the most part, memorizing for the LSAT has a lot in common with practicing for a report on a book you didn’t read. You’ll be a lot better off working through actual LSAT questions (or just doing the reading for your book report) than you will be trying to take shortcuts.

Happy Grey Day to the June 2018 LSATers!

Happy Grey Day everybody! For those who aren’t familiar with this special event that occurs an ever-growing number of times per year, Grey Day is the foreboding name used for the LSAT score release date, so called because it’s the day that the green icons on your LSAC account go grey, shortly before your LSAT score is actually released.
