Happy Birthday, Samuel L. Jackson (and the LSAT)

The LSAT is celebrating its 67th birthday this year, and so is Samuel L. Jackson. Both have retained their signature eccentricities, while also adapting through the decades. What follows is a brief genealogy of their intertwined histories.

The modern LSAT originally had roughly fifty Logical Reasoning questions, broken into two sections; four different Logic Games, each with about 6 questions; and four long passages for Reading Comprehension, also with around 6 questions each.

In 2006, however, just as Mr. Jackson was famously declaring that he had had it with “these muthaf******* snakes on this muthaf***** plane,” LSAC decided they didn’t like having these muthaf******* passages all the muthaf***** same.
