Last Call for Our Summer LSAT Classes!

We are in the dog days of summer (as I was reminded during my sweltering walk to work this morning), which can only mean one thing: the Fall 2018 LSAT is just around the corner. If you’ve already succumbed to the enervating affect of this heat wave and failed to sign up for an LSAT prep class, there’s still time to act.

Happy Grey Day to the June 2018 LSATers!

Happy Grey Day everybody! For those who aren’t familiar with this special event that occurs an ever-growing number of times per year, Grey Day is the foreboding name used for the LSAT score release date, so called because it’s the day that the green icons on your LSAC account go grey, shortly before your LSAT score is actually released.

Our Summer Classes Are Your Best Bet to Apply to Law School in 2018

Where do you see yourself in Fall 2019? In law school? Have you started to study for the LSAT yet? No? Well, it’s time.

See, the next three LSAT administrations are in September, November and January. January scores will come out in February, which is kind of late in the admissions process. November scores will come out in December, or right in the thick of things. Not late, but not early either. September LSAT scores will be out early.

The Pros and Khans of LSAC’s Free LSAT Prep

Back on June 1st, Khan Academy announced, with much fanfare and at least as many emojis, that its free LSAT prep course was live. This course was announced way back in 2017 in partnership with the Law School Admission Council. LSAC instituted many measures to make the LSAT more student-friendly and accessible throughout 2017 and 2018, but in many ways, this was its pièce de résistance — an entirely free online prep program. One that could, theoretically, narrow the gap between affluent pre-lawyers who are able to afford private tutors and commercial test prep and those who cannot.

Revisiting Elle’s LSAT Journey from Legally Blonde

A third Legally Blonde movie has been announced for Valentine’s Day 2020 and all I can say is…omigod you guys!! No matter your opinion of the franchise, the first Legally Blonde movie is one of the most popular and well-known depictions of the law school application process. And if you listen to the movies’ screenwriters, the original movie inspired a generation of women to go the law school.

Are We In for Another Big Increase in LSAT Takers This Year?

LSAC tweeted last Friday that, if you combine the June and July 2018 LSAT sign-ups, there’s a 36% increase in test takers over the June 2017 exam. Which is pretty wild, especially since June 2017 saw a 20% increase over the previous year. These increases could be fairly alarming to current LSAT students, in that they might signal a particularly competitive admissions cycle.

Catch that Summer Feeling with the Last of Our Summer LSAT Classes

Summertime, and the livin’ is easy… or maybe not so easy, if the LSAT is looming in your near future.
