As winter becomes spring, many of you will soon be sitting down to take your first practice LSAT. This is the universal first step, and more often than not, it’s a fairly painful one.
Not to be a big downer, but taking an LSAT with little or no preparation is a humbling experience, not unlike stepping into a boxing ring for the first time. Going in, you might feel confident, even excited. After all, you’ve seen plenty of boxing in the movies, so you know the drill – jab, hook, etc. And then the bell rings and someone starts hitting you really hard, and you’re like, “Wait… hang on… ow!… Oh, I see. I suck.”
After that, maybe you quit boxing and try something lower impact. It’s kind of barbaric anyway, you think. You try swimming. Apparently it’s good for your joints.
