Now that Halloween is officially over, we should be preparing for Thanksgiving and Christmas, right? Well, yes, but not if you’re planning on taking the January LSAT. With only a few months out before the exam, now is the time to register for a class, purchase an online course, or find a tutor.

From the Vaults: To Retake or Not?

December LSAT scores are out, and that means many students are now facing a tough choice: retake the test or stick with the score you got?

The question is a perennial one, and one that we’ve tackled before here at Most Strongly Supported. According to data from LSAC, most mid-range test takers (those who scored in the 140s and 150s on their previous LSAT) increase their scores by slightly more than two points when they retake it.

So is the LSAT just a lawyer-y version of the SAT? Do you need to know how to find the hypotenuse of a lawyer triangle? Do you have to determine whether the rules of grammar are being violated in a legal brief? Must you memorize the definition of legal terms such as “consideration” or “restitution?”

Why is the June LSAT on a Monday afternoon?

The June LSAT is the only one offered in the afternoon instead of the torturously early morning. But do you know why LSAC has provided this unexpected bounty to us unworthy paeans?

My investigation yielded no insight into the minds of the creators, so we must conjecture in order to grasp at divine knowledge.

5 Ways to Consolidate Your LSAT Progress

By this point, most of the students in our live classes have gotten through Lesson 2. If you’re one of those fortunate souls, congratulations on making it this far! There’s a lot left to cover, but you may be feeling overwhelmed from all the meaty goodness in those first two lessons. (Are we not doing ‘phrasing’ any more?) If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed and would like to regroup, here’s what to do.

The Logic of Skipping a Game

As the song goes, “You’ve got to know when to hold ’em and know when to fold ’em.” In a perfect world, you’d be able to finish all four Logic Games in a section within the given time, but sometimes that’s just not in the cards.
