If there’s one thing that terrifies prospective law students more than the LSAT, it’s law school finals. Even after gaining admission to some of the most hallowed halls in the country, the specter of that first round of exams casts a pallor over their heads.
Authors have written books on how to ace them. Students have created catchy acronyms to approach them. There are even simulated programs in which you can enroll that will take you through a mock semester, including an actual final at the end.
And why is there so much stress over a test? Haven’t you taken a ton in undergrad?
Yes, you have. But nothing like a law school final.
The biggest difference between the law school final and the undergrad final is the relative import of the exam.
