Finding an LSAT-Life Balance

If you’ve been studying for the LSAT for a while now, you may be starting to feel the strain. Let me lay out a scenario for you…

You don’t have enough time. After a long day of work, you might normally go to the gym then get dinner with a friend. But these days, you have to spend the nights unpacking logical fallacies. And since the LSAT keeps you up late you’re groggy and inefficient at work, so you have to stay after hours to keep from falling behind. You skip the gym again, and it’s another late night of Logical Reasoning. You call your friends to back out of Saturday’s Dodgers game as you run your thumb along the hundreds of pages of study material awaiting you.

Meanwhile, your brain is in manic LSAT-mode all the time and you can’t ever relax.

To Gap Year or Not To Gap Year?

I graduated from my undergrad in 2010. It took me four years to make my way to law school. I wrote about how I decided to go to law school before, but today I bring you my take on the gap year(s).

Generally, I think it’s a great idea to take a year off. Once you start law school you’ll never have the chance to take a “gap” year again, unless something goes horribly wrong. Law school is a lot of work, and so is being a lawyer. Taking some time off can also help you work harder once you get to law school without burning out.

If you’re only going to take one year off in between your undergrad and law school, you don’t really have to do anything special.
