A Look at the June 2018 LSAT: Logic Games and the Curve

And we’re finishing up our fantastic voyage through the June 2018 LSAT today with Logic Games and “the curve.” In many ways, these are the easiest parts of the LSAT to predict. And yet, in my experience, these are the two sections students freak out about the most. The chance of getting a completely novel game tends to worry a lot of test takers. And yet, pretty much every games section features one basic ordering game, one tiered ordering game, a grouping game of some sort, and then either a second grouping game or a game that combines ordering and grouping. People worry about whether they’re going to get a hard test or an easy test, and then if it’s an easy test, they worry that the curve will be totally unforgiving. But, not for nothing, our resident LSAT soothsayer has been nailing the curve for awhile now.

A Look at the June 2018 LSAT: Reading Comprehension

We’re continuing our journey through the June 2018 LSAT, machete-hacking our way through brush and thicket of the oft-treacherous Reading Comprehension section. Maybe you’ve been through this jungle safari before, having taken the June test. In that case, we trust that you’ll find this a more pleasant journey the second time; perhaps you’ll even experience fleeting pangs of nostalgia as you take in the vistas once again. Or, perhaps this is your native voyage, and you are along for the ride to glean insight into the what this jungle might look like in September, November, or beyond. Either way, make sure to wear breathable fabric — this world is only getting warmer — and to bring a lunch — but cooked foodstuffs only, you have neither the time nor energy reserves to masticate a maw-ful of raw foods. Let’s journey ahead to Reading Comp!

A Look at the June 2018 LSAT: Logical Reasoning

Last Thursday, nothing related to the LSAT was supposed to happen. The scores for the June 2018 LSAT were supposed to be released on Friday, June 29. LSAC made a whole thing about how, instead of jerking around thousands of test takers and capriciously releasing LSAT scores sometime in the days surrounding the time they promised to release the scores (as had been the cases for pretty much every score release), they were going to release the June scores on the day they promised to release them. Which was Friday, June 29.

Happy Grey Day to the June 2018 LSATers!

Happy Grey Day everybody! For those who aren’t familiar with this special event that occurs an ever-growing number of times per year, Grey Day is the foreboding name used for the LSAT score release date, so called because it’s the day that the green icons on your LSAC account go grey, shortly before your LSAT score is actually released.

Are We In for Another Big Increase in LSAT Takers This Year?

LSAC tweeted last Friday that, if you combine the June and July 2018 LSAT sign-ups, there’s a 36% increase in test takers over the June 2017 exam. Which is pretty wild, especially since June 2017 saw a 20% increase over the previous year. These increases could be fairly alarming to current LSAT students, in that they might signal a particularly competitive admissions cycle.

June 2018 Post-LSAT Carnival

With another LSAT cycle behind us, it’s time for a roundup of the very best that the internet (well, mostly LSAT takers on Reddit) have to say about the June 2018 exam! Since this is not my first time scrolling through LSAT discussion forums, I can tell you that this week, just like any post-LSAT week, is mainly made up of the most earnest of students, engaging in the post-LSAT tradition of comparing the general topics of the exam in order to deduce which of their own sections was the Experimental (and if you’re a June ’18 LSAT taker who doesn’t know what I mean about using internet forums to figure out which sections were Experimental, get online and see for yourself). So what I present below are the most unique internet discussions from the June test, which also just might make you feel better about your own exam.

Thinking about retaking the LSAT in July or September? We have good news …

Who says LSAC can’t be nice sometimes? I’ll explain, but first, an action item: If you took the June LSAT and you’re not sure how it went or whether you might want to retake, you should register for the July LSAT now. The deadline is tomorrow. Here’s why.

The Morning Cometh: The June 2018 LSAT Recap

Last night marked the beginning of the 2018-19 LSAT year. The Law School Admission Council, which writes and administers this exam, decided long ago in its infinite wisdom that it would use a June-to-May calendar year instead of the classic Gregorian calendar we use for pretty much everything else. Apparently, the knowledge that many law school candidates plan several months of their years around the test wasn’t enough for LSAC — it wanted the gravitational pull of the LSAT to be great enough to completely rearrange how we all understand linear time.
