One Last Piece of Advice …

I’ve been writing blog posts about the LSAT regularly for more than six years, and this is my last one, at least for now, as I move on to new things. It’s been fun, but I won’t bore you with stories about the olden times when logic games were on one page each and you had to bring an extra-sharp pencil to write super small in the margins.

If you’re trying to memorize it one question type at a time, all of this will get much easier if you understand one simple rule. Here’s the fundamental principle.

Does Raising Tuition Increase Enrollments for Law Schools?

No prospective law student likes how expensive law school is. A lot of people take on tons and tons of debt to go to school. Then, when they graduate, the pressure is on those lawyers to chart a career path that lets them have a chance at getting out from under that debt. For graduates of lower-tier schools with lots of debt, it’s often hard to find such a career path.

Indubitable* Predictions for the September 2018 LSAT

This year, there’s been a July LSAT. There’s going to be a November LSAT. There have never been such things. So it’s good to know that there’s still a September LSAT, at least for now, and it’s coming up this weekend. It’s time to make some predictions.

Will Law Schools Hold Having More Than One LSAT Score Against You?

What happens if you take the LSAT multiple times? Policies have changed, some recently and some not so recently. Let’s run through a quick history so we can discuss what actually matters today.

You may hear something, especially from older lawyers, about multiple LSAT scores being averaged. That used to happen. Not anymore.

The LSAT Is Officially Going Digital Next Spring

The LSAT is indeed going electronic, or at least so says LSAC’s president. Maybe Big Pencil needs to spend more money on lobbying. Anyway, the shift is supposed to happen this coming spring. Supposedly, for a few months, you’ll get to choose whether you’d like to take the test electronically or on paper. But after that, it’ll be electronic from then on out.

Bad Analogies Are a Lot Like Questions About Dinosaurs

If you were training to run a race, it wouldn’t be a good idea to work out like crazy one day a week and loaf the rest. Studying for the LSAT, like training for a race, involves building up skills over time. So you shouldn’t cram your LSAT studying on the weekends but instead spread it out over time.
