June LSAT: The Morning Cometh

Hopefully, you’re still sleeping off the raging party you threw last night in celebration of/lamentation of taking the June 2016 LSAT. So, what do we know?

First off, it appears highly likely that section three was the experimental section. So, if you tanked that section, hooray! It’s a freebie! If you were hoping against hope that it was one of the other sections, you may end up disappointed.

Your February 2016 LSAT Recap

The February LSAT is in the books. Compared to the other LSATs in the year, the February LSAT has an aura of mystery about it. Since the test is undisclosed, no one outside LSAC ever gets to see it, except on test day. This leads to the rumor that the February LSAT is weird or different.

It isn’t.

The Day After the Day After

You shut your friends and family out of your life. You gave up that thing that was way too distracting. (Yes, we know about that thing. Blueprint is the Santa Claus of test preparation.) You studied and studied and studied. You pleaded with fate or whatever higher power you believe in. Maybe you even pleaded with a higher power you don’t believe in. In short, you turned your happy life upside down over a multiple-choice test. That test happened this past Saturday.

June LSAT: The Morning Cometh

The dust is settling on the June 2015 LSAT, and overall, it sounds like there were some surprises on the test, with a lot of test-takers hoping for a generous curve.

Much like last year, the section that generated the most discussion was Logic Games, where test-takers were faced with an unusual and difficult final game about magazine features. We can’t discuss too many of the particulars, but it sounds like the game gave very few rules, and I’ve heard a few people say that they found at least one of the rules to be confusing. LSAC has been throwing more unusual games at test-takers recently, and it looks like that trend is here to stay.

February LSAT: The Morning Cometh

You had your date with the February LSAT yesterday. You gave it hours of undivided attention, and it kicked you out with nothing more than a vague promise to email in a few weeks.

From the rumors I’m hearing about yesterday’s test, LSAC needs to get a little more creative with the subject matter. A Reading Comp passage about Dark Matter? Again? And yet another game about cars? You can do better, LSAC.

But all that isn’t terribly important. Most LSAT test takers would gladly answer Reading Comp questions about purple dinosaurs on children’s television as long as they reached their target score. I’m hearing that the February LSAT seemed easier than the last few LSATs to a lot of people. There were hard questions, as always. Some people found a few Logical Reasoning questions especially puzzling. But on the whole, there’s no mass freakout about any one thing from yesterday’s test.

December LSAT: Final Summary

The deadline to cancel your December LSAT scores has passed, so if you took the test and haven’t canceled, you’re in for the long haul until scores are released. Much of the discussion in the week after the test centered on questions about canceling scores, so now that those discussions are out of the way, let’s take a more in-depth look at the test.

Often after an administration of the LSAT, there will be a lot of chatter focusing around one particularly difficult Logic Game or Reading Comprehension passage. That wasn’t quite the case for this particular test. This doesn’t mean that the test was easy, but it does generally indicate that there was nothing terribly unusual on any of the sections.

December LSAT: The Morning Cometh

It’s the morning after the LSAT. As the hangover (whether from the LSAT or whatever you did after the LSAT) wears off, it’s time to reflect and look back on yesterday’s test.

By the reports I’m hearing, yesterday’s LSAT sounds pretty standard. There was some hard stuff, but nothing that made everyone scream in unison. And some LSATs have things that make everyone scream in unison. See this past June, for example.

It’s natural to wonder whether you should cancel your score. It’s normal to walk out of the LSAT test center feeling not so great. That’s because it’s a hard test, and it’s natural to remember the stuff that made you (figuratively) soil your pants.

December LSAT: Instant Recap

We may not know much about the December LSAT, but we do know that it is over.

Today thousands of law school hopefuls filled LSAT testing centers across the country in hopes of earning an LSAT score that will catapult them into law school admission paradise. Were you one of them? What did you think?

So far, the consensus seems to lean towards a pretty standard LSAT overall. Some folks thought an RC section on perfuming was kind of hilarious, while others found it tough going. Likewise, an LG involving rugs was either cake or a real time-burner.
