LSAT Pairings Weirder Than Kanye West & Paul McCartney

In case you missed it amongst New Year’s celebration and study anxiety, Kanye West dropped a new song just as the calendar rolled over to 2015. That alone would normally be huge news, but “Only One” is not only a brand new Kanye jam (and Kim K’s favorite, no less) it also features none other than Paul McCartney, and apparently is the first in what will be a “prolific musical collaboration between these two legendary artists.”

If you’re like me, the byline Kanye West (feat. Paul McCartney) makes you do a quadruple take. But after thinking about it a little bit more, it’s a pairing that makes some sense. Both are defining artists in their respective genres, and both have a long history of interesting collaboration – I highly recommend checking out Sir Paul’s strange grifter partnership with Michael Jackson and Kanye’s awesomely weird music video starring Zach Galifianakis.

Law School Predictions for 2015

2015 should be an interesting year for law school applicants. Let’s make some guesses about what this new year will bring….

Legal Employment Will Improve
As of the September LSAT, we’re at a historical low for the number of LSAT takers. Law school applications are similarly down. But the economy is improving. Some are predicting that this combination will mean more jobs for the current crop of law school students, though law school employment rates kept falling as of last year. I think the legal field will follow the general trend of the rest of the economy, and legal jobs will rebound in the next year.

Changes In Affirmative Action Admissions May Be Coming
Asian students are suing Harvard University and the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill for allegedly discriminating against Asian applicants in undergraduate admissions. Keep on eye on these suits.

LSAT Resolutions for 2015

The New Year is upon us, and, while you should definitely party your brains out tonight (then recover your brains out tomorrow), now is a good time to think about studying for the February LSAT. In addition to resolving to lose weight, finish that novel, hike Everest, and prepare for the zombie apocalypse, here are five resolutions you must make to get a great score on February 7th.

1. Do away with distractions and unnecessary responsibilities.
Everyone wants a slice of your precious time and none of them understand what it’s like to study for the LSAT. Mom wants your help making pot roast and your friend has a place in Cabo this weekend and that damn novel certainly isn’t going to write itself (dammit!). Well, too bad.
