The U.S. Women’s National Team found a perfect way to celebrate America’s birthday – by crushing Japan to win the World Cup for the first time in 16 years. In honor of the team’s accomplishment, here are a few ways in which the LSAT is like the World Cup.
1.) There’s a lot of competition
When you take the LSAT, you don’t have to compete against anyone else, but you do have to compete with yourself. The test-preparation process is a grind; it gets boring and unpleasant pretty quickly. When I prepared for the LSAT, I would constantly try to one-up myself – I would try to complete every practice set and every practice exam more quickly and accurately than the last. The more I practiced, the better I got, and the more intense my “competition” became. Consequently, my preparation technique was analogous to the increasingly difficult rounds in the World Cup tournament. Obviously, this style of preparation isn’t for everyone, but it is one way of trying to make the process more bearable.
