From the Vaults: Diajammable Statements

You’ve been studying for the LSAT for some time. Plugging away, figuring out when to make scenarios on Logic Games, how to tag a Reading Comprehension passage, and memorizing those common fallacies that recur on Logical Reasoning. You’ve been diligent, methodical, indefatigable.

A Look at the June 2018 LSAT: Logical Reasoning

Last Thursday, nothing related to the LSAT was supposed to happen. The scores for the June 2018 LSAT were supposed to be released on Friday, June 29. LSAC made a whole thing about how, instead of jerking around thousands of test takers and capriciously releasing LSAT scores sometime in the days surrounding the time they promised to release the scores (as had been the cases for pretty much every score release), they were going to release the June scores on the day they promised to release them. Which was Friday, June 29.
