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.

Revisiting Elle’s LSAT Journey from Legally Blonde

A third Legally Blonde movie has been announced for Valentine’s Day 2020 and all I can say is…omigod you guys!! No matter your opinion of the franchise, the first Legally Blonde movie is one of the most popular and well-known depictions of the law school application process. And if you listen to the movies’ screenwriters, the original movie inspired a generation of women to go the law school.

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.

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.
