September 2017 Post-LSAT Carnival

It’s been a week since the Law School Admissions Council bequeathed the September 2017 LSAT to a nation of lawyers-to-be (unless you live in parts of Florida, in which case, good luck when the exam comes around to you!). And since this momentous bequeathing, the internet has been ablaze with hot takes on the exam. Well, more accurately, a very specific niche of chatty soon-to-be law students have been talking about the exam, mostly trying to figure out which section was the experimental.

But there has been some interesting and lively discussions surrounding the exam on all corners of the internet, so we thought we’d bring back an old favorite — the post-LSAT Carnival — to round up the chatter about the September exam.

A Legal Primer, for Those Annoying RC Passages About the Law

One of the best things about the LSAT is that you don’t really have to remember any substantive information. Sure, you have to learn some techniques to answer questions, but you don’t have to know any legal facts (and believe me, once you take the bar exam, you’ll truly appreciate how wonderful that difference is).

And yet, many recent LSATs have had Reading Comprehension passages on the law and legal processes.

From the Vault: Your Path to Becoming an LSAT Jedi Begins Practice Exam 1

Because many Blueprint classes started last weekend — which means that many Blueprint students just took Practice Exam 1 — we’re running an old post about what you should take away from that potentially demoralizing experience. If you just took that exam, and need a little pick me up, take this advice from former Blueprint instructor and Columbia Law alum Philip Mayer …

You Got This

Tomorrow is the September LSAT. No amount of freaking out will change that, so it’s best to accept it. Here’s why you shouldn’t be too scared.

You’ve come along way. Remember when you started studying? When logic games looked like an alien language? When it seemed like there were so many indicator words for necessary and sufficient conditions and you didn’t know how you’d ever get them all down? Those days are long gone.

Only a fool would predict what’ll be on the LSAT. So here are our predictions …

All right, the time is upon us. We are T-minus 2 days until the September 2017 LSAT is unveiled to a nation of law school hopefuls and, in the case of the fine people who contribute to this blog, LSAT instructors.

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably been studying for that moment for months on end. You’ve used past exams to guide your study. You’ve seen that, while there are only a few different kinds of Logical Reasoning questions, Logic Games, and Reading Comprehension passages that the LSAT returns to again and again, you never quite know which combination of those you’re going get on a given exam. The malevolent sorcerers who write this test can be quite unpredictable in that way.

I’ve been academically dismissed following 1L. What should I do?

In this post, law school admissions expert Anna Ivey answers a student’s question about reapplying to law school following an academic dismissal.

Student: “I completed one year of law school in May 2017. However, I was academically dismissed due to poor test results. Currently, I am taking a year off from law school, but I am determined to complete law school and become an attorney. I am strongly considering retaking the LSAT before reapplying.”

Fall Classes Starting This Weekend: Don’t Debait Any Longer, Sign Up Now!

I love fishing (boy, I bet that got you hooked on this post … ). I’ve spent countless hours shore fishing, deep-sea fishing, and even bow-fishing (it was eco-friendly, I promise). Over the years, I’ve gained enough experience to be halfway decent at choosing the right spots, bait, flies, etc. But I still have the most success when I use a guide — a guide knows the best spots, the best techniques, and the best times.
