Are We In for Another Big Increase in LSAT Takers This Year?

LSAC tweeted last Friday that, if you combine the June and July 2018 LSAT sign-ups, there’s a 36% increase in test takers over the June 2017 exam. Which is pretty wild, especially since June 2017 saw a 20% increase over the previous year. These increases could be fairly alarming to current LSAT students, in that they might signal a particularly competitive admissions cycle.

Catch that Summer Feeling with the Last of Our Summer LSAT Classes

Summertime, and the livin’ is easy… or maybe not so easy, if the LSAT is looming in your near future. While summer is always time to sit back and unwind, it’s also time to get your ducks in a row so that you’re prepared after the boys of summer are gone. After all, school’s out for summer, but fall – and its attendant LSAT dates – will be here before you know it.

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.

Thinking about retaking the LSAT in July or September? We have good news …

Who says LSAC can’t be nice sometimes? I’ll explain, but first, an action item: If you took the June LSAT and you’re not sure how it went or whether you might want to retake, you should register for the July LSAT now. The deadline is tomorrow. Here’s why.

The Morning Cometh: The June 2018 LSAT Recap

Last night marked the beginning of the 2018-19 LSAT year. The Law School Admission Council, which writes and administers this exam, decided long ago in its infinite wisdom that it would use a June-to-May calendar year instead of the classic Gregorian calendar we use for pretty much everything else. Apparently, the knowledge that many law school candidates plan several months of their years around the test wasn’t enough for LSAC — it wanted the gravitational pull of the LSAT to be great enough to completely rearrange how we all understand linear time.
