When LSAC announced that there was going to be a brand-new LSAT in July 2018, the greater community of LSAT-watchers lost its dang mind. Think about it: since, like, practically the middle ages (read: 1991), the LSAT had been given four times a year. Now, all of the sudden, there was going to be this fifth LSAT. That’s a (checking my math) 25% increase in LSAT. That’s sizable!
