Despite the warnings I heard before law school, the great majority of law students I’ve met are thoughtful, interesting and supportive people. The “gunner” stereotype of a law student is essentially the opposite: a self-important student who sits at the front of every class, takes up class time with their own philosophizing on the law, and ensures that everybody knows just how much they’re studying. My experience has been that the “gunner” rarely exists in its full form, but you do see different pieces of the gunner personality in people you meet in law school.
We’re getting into the last month before another LSAT, and that means practice tests are absolutely essential to folks preparing for the exam. Any student who’s taken a practice test is familiar with the unnerving process of calculating your own practice exam score. However, the LSAT practice exams are not like online quizzes where you inevitably find out that you would be a Hufflepuff in Harry Potter, and then move on with your day. Scoring is really just the first step in reviewing a practice exam if you want to reap the greatest benefit from your practice.
