Lessons Learned From the October 2015 LSAT

What Would ‘Seinfeld’ Characters Get on the LSAT?

It’s time for the latest installment of What Would They Score on the LSAT, the Peabody-winning* series in which we speculate on what scores your favorite celebrities and fictional characters would get if they took the LSAT.

Today, I’d like to open up the vault and go back to a television classic: Seinfeld, the show about nothing. Seinfeld follows the wacky antics of four amoral New Yorkers – Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer. But then, if you don’t know that, Jerry might have a thing or two to say to you, because Seinfeld was the #1 show for 41 years* and has had a huge influence on television ever since.

June 2015 LSAT Scores Released

Yesterday was a big day in LSAT World, as the scores for the June 2015 LSAT were released late in the day.

Here’s how the curve broke down:
-10 for a 170
-26 for a 160
-44 for a 150

This means that you could’ve missed 10 questions and gotten a 170, and so on and so forth. Also of note is the fact that it was not possible to get a 179, 175, or a 122 on this exam.

Tips to Improve Your LSAT Study Habits (and LSAT Score)

LSAT prep season is getting in full swing. This winter, per usual, was a quiet time in the pre-law world; few people sit for the February LSAT, and there’s a lull of activity in the early months of the year. But after a busier spring of June LSAT prep, even more people are gearing up for the October. So what should you do if you’re planning on taking the test in a few months? Well, this may sound obvious, but you should study. You should study frequently, you should study well, you should study regularly. You should study.

LSAT Study Tip I: Do the work

For those of you taking an LSAT prep course, whether online or in-person, it’s not enough to just do the lessons.
