Last night marked the beginning of the 2018-19 LSAT year. The Law School Admission Council, which writes and administers this exam, decided long ago in its infinite wisdom that it would use a June-to-May calendar year instead of the classic Gregorian calendar we use for pretty much everything else. Apparently, the knowledge that many law school candidates plan several months of their years around the test wasn’t enough for LSAC — it wanted the gravitational pull of the LSAT to be great enough to completely rearrange how we all understand linear time.
Congratulations to all of you brave souls who took the first LSAT of the 2018-19 LSAT season! Now that the exam is done, what to do? Well, you could celebrate extravagantly, like Alex Ovechkin following the Stanley Cup. Or you could celebrate solemnly and joylessly, like the Warriors following the NBA Finals. Or, you can unburden yourself, and chat about the exam you just took.
