As a humanities major, I’m not particularly familiar with the concept of curves. So, when I learned the LSAT was curved back in the day, I didn’t really know what it meant (I did, however, get the sense that I wouldn’t benefit from the same grade inflation I’d been lucky enough o experience during undergrad).
Learning to take the LSAT can sometimes feel like a demoralizing exercise that’s completely inapplicable to the rest of your life (or so I hear). However, future law students can rest assured that they will very much be putting their Reading Comprehension skills to use in each of their core law school classes. While the first passage of the Reading Comp section on the September LSAT gave a lot of students trouble, it’s a passage about a famous Supreme Court case which can perfectly illustrate the use of Reading Comp methods in your upcoming legal studies.
