Law School Admission Standards Have Been Declining. That’s Good News … Right …?

Harvard Law recently decided to allow applicants to submit GRE scores in lieu of LSAT scores. The move has added fuel to the fire that law schools are needlessly lowering their academic standards.

hh, the signposts of spring are among us. Winter is washing away with the balmy breezes of mid-April. Delphiniums and peonies are blooming. Antihistamine sales are booming.

And here you are, studying rigorously for the LSAT. You’re indoors, trying to make sense out of logic games and reading comprehension. And that’s great! You have a goal, and you are resolute in achieving that goal. But maybe you’re feeling a little stuck. Maybe you feel like you need to get a study plan in order for the exam.
