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.

Your Plan for the Last Week of Studying for the LSAT

I recently started the process of training for a marathon. As someone who has never done much distance running, I’ve been doing my best to follow a set training plan. The plan generally involves one progressively longer run per week and several short to medium runs. However, in the final couple weeks, the training plan tapers off and the intensity reduces. This is especially true in the last week of training prior to the race, which has just a couple, shorter runs to get you ready for the big day.

One Last Piece of Advice …

I’ve been writing blog posts about the LSAT regularly for more than six years, and this is my last one, at least for now, as I move on to new things. It’s been fun, but I won’t bore you with stories about the olden times when logic games were on one page each and you had to bring an extra-sharp pencil to write super small in the margins.

Learn About Prescriptive Statements, That’s Doctor’s Orders

If you want to succeed at the LSAT, you really should get to know prescriptive statements. That’s a prescriptive statement — a claim about what “should” or “ought to” be done. These kinds of claims come up a lot on the LSAT and it’s helpful to know what they mean. They also give you hints that certain other things might be going on. Let’s talk a bit about prescriptive statements.

DOs and DON’Ts of Your Personal Statement

As the Immortal Bard once stated, “Now is the winter of our discontent.” For those of you working on your personal statements can probably relate to his sentiment all too well. For me, writing my personal statement was the worst part of the application process. From coming up with a topic to proofreading it a million times, it was truly a harrowing experience.

Does the LSAT let the right kind of people into law school?

A few days ago, the Internet algorithms that know all too much about me directed me to this Vice article about taking the LSAT with no prep. I read it quickly and chuckled at the test takers who had trouble following the somewhat onerous but not terribly complicated test day instructions. I was also amused but not surprised to learn that LSAC employs “secret shopper” test takers to make sure that the proctors enforce regulations. But ultimately I found it a relatively flimsy premise for an article and moved on with my oh-so-exciting weekend.
