The Morning Cometh: The November 2018 LSAT Recap

Congrats to all the November 2018 LSAT test takers! You did it! And by “it,” we mean you survived the LSAT. Of course, the LSAT has a pretty high survival rate. In fact, taking the LSAT is one of the safest ways to spend a Saturday morning, all things considered. Especially when the LSAC takes special precautions to close test centers that present any chance of natural disaster-created peril.

But, of course, hopefully you did more than merely survive the exam. Hopefully you did so well on it that this exam will catapult you right into law school. Maybe you feel that way! We certainly hope so! Or, maybe, you feel the exam was less an aspirational catapult that launches you into your dream school or more of a humiliating Japanese game show-style catapult that launches you into a tank of fetid water.

Either way, you probably want a space to talk about this exam. And that’s what this blog is for. As we do for every LSAT, we’ll summarize the post-exam chatter we’ve heard about the test. So see what your fellow test takers have been saying about the exam, and share your own experiences in the comment section!

C. And while you’re there, check to see if your test center was closed. LSAC

You Got This

Hey you — yes, you about to take the LSAT. Know that you got this and that you’re already an exceptional person going into this exam. Here’s why:

When you chose to go to law school, you set yourself up to be among a relatively small and ambitious group of people who aren’t afraid to work hard and commit to their education for the sake of accomplishing truly worthy goals.

A. The Princeton Review released its annual law school rankings, placing NYU at the top spot yet again. The biggest surprise? Perennial U.S. News top dog Yale failed to crack the top ten. The Princeton Review

B. Students at Harvard Law are urging fellow students at top law schools to not interview with Kirkland & Ellis, after that big law firm didn’t disclose whether it forces summer associates to sign a forced arbitration agreement. Above the Law

C. Berkeley Law dean Erwin Chemerinsky recommended the school remove mining industry baron and racist-pamphlet publisher John Boalt from the name of its school. ABA Journal

D. On how becoming a lawyer changes how people treat you, beyond others saying, unprompted, “Yo so I have this one legal problem …” Above the Law

E. CNN is suing the White House after it revoked Jim Acosta’s press pass, following an incident in which he … sort of annoyingly insisted on asking a question. Washington Post
