As June LSAT test-takers may recall, the latest LSAT administration by the Law School Admissions Council featured, for the first time ever, two pages for Analytical Reasoning.
Turns out, it wasn’t an accident.
LSAC Director of Communications Wendy Margolis confirmed today through email that all future administrations of the LSAT would henceforth feature two pages for logic games.
Although this isn’t the kind of news story that will open The Situation Room, in the world of LSAT this is quite significant. Aside from higher printing costs for LSAC, it means you’ll have more room on logic games on LSAT test day to take notes/write out diagrams/doodle LSAT proctors with unibrows and devil horns. It also shows that with enough protest, LSAT test-takers can persuade LSAC to change its ways.
Blueprint co-founder Matt Riley said it’s good that LSAC finally listened to years and years of complaints from students and changed the LSAT to benefit them. Although, in the long run, you either know Analytical Reasoning or you don’t.
Also, if you’re wondering why LSAC made the change on the June LSAT instead of the February LSAT (the latter of which is undisclosed so that LSAC can experiment with the exam), remember that the June LSAT is technically the first LSAT administration of the year. In fact, most of LSAC’s structural changes (there aren’t many) first appear on the June LSAT.
Now it’s your guys’ turn. What do you think about two pages for LSAT logic games? Chime in in the comments.
The invitation is also extended to you, Wolf Blitzer.
