LSAT Instructor: The End of 1L

Yuko Sin is an instructor and blogger for Blueprint LSAT Prep. He started as a 1L at Columbia Law School in the fall, and has been writing a series of law school-related posts about his experiences.

I’m almost at the end of my first year of law school. I have one more exam to go: Property. Japanese Law, Crim, and Torts are done. I have no idea how I did, but I’m alternating between disgust, resignation, and occasional bouts of wild optimism.

Taking a law school exam is neither science nor art. It’s more like alchemy. You don’t really know what you’re doing but you construct a system of symbols and incantations called an “outline”, and that system sometimes produces good outcomes, though it always falls short of gold.

3 Tips to Balance Law School Applications and Finals

Applying to law school is a difficult and stressful process at the best of times. When you have to worry about final exams, papers, and holiday activities on top of your applications, it becomes even more difficult. Having gone through the process last year, I am going to offer a few words of advice on how to make it through in one piece.

Set Reasonable Goals
The best part of the application process is that you can easily break it up into small parts. Apart from the personal statement, virtually every part of schools’ applications are made up of segments that you can complete in a few hours. For example, you can complete the forms on LSAC or write the first draft of an optional essay over the course of an afternoon.
