Today marks the nationwide release of the Steve Jobs biopic, jOBS, starring Kelso, I mean, Ashton Kutcher. So far, critics don’t think much of the movie, some of the scenes are downright cringeworthy, and the portrayal of Steve Wozniak is just awful. But, we can draw a very important lesson about LSAT prep from Jobs’s life.
I think Jobs would not have done very well on his first practice LSAT. After all, when he was diagnosed with cancer he consulted a psychic instead of getting the surgery his doctor recommended. So, I would put Jobs’s first practice LSAT score at around a 140.
However, I do think Jobs’s final LSAT score, after considerable practice (and maybe a few psychic séances), would be much higher. He’d probably end up with an LSAT score somewhere in the 160s. This is because your final LSAT score is largely determined by how well you deal with adversity, and Jobs did this very well.
