A Look at the September 2018 LSAT: The “Curve”

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).

A Look at the September 2018 LSAT: Reading Comprehension

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.

A Look at the September 2018 LSAT: Logic Games

Today we’re continuing our look at the September 2018 LSAT by delving into the Logic Games section. There have been a few recent test administrations with some off-the-wall game types (like a vanishingly-rare circular game on the July administration of the test). Did LSAC continue the trend of unusual game types with this most recent test, or did they bring it back to basics? Read on to find out!

A Look at the September 2018 LSAT: Logical Reasoning

For fans of rap music whose tastes go beyond putting on whatever shows up on Rap Caviar, September 29th, 1998 is generally considered to be the greatest release date for rap albums ever. You had Outkast get really into traditional rap subversions and astral funk excursions and spoken word discursions on their masterpiece Aquemini. You had Jay-Z, bolstered by the showtune-sampling hit single, cementing his crossover bona fides force with <em>Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life.* We also had Black Star’s conscious-styled antidote to the shiny suit era in Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star, the last pre-break-up album from the legendary A Tribe Called Quest, and, sure why not, a Brand Nubian record thrown in.

September 2018 Post-LSAT Carnival

As we do after every LSAT, we’re throwing a carnival! And not just any kind of carnival — the best kind! No, no, not the crazy lit Brazilian ones with the steroidal parades or Caribbean cruise ones or the ones with rigged games. And no, not that guy from the TV show … that’s a Cannavale. No, folks, we’re throwing a post-LSAT carnival! Yes, we’re throwing a party with all your post-LSAT pals.

The Morning Cometh: The September 2018 LSAT Recap

In the summer months, millions of people around the globe travel en mass to their local multiplexes to see the blockbusters that Hollywood has bestowed upon them. These films can feature superheroes, or they can be sequels to beloved dinosaur movies; they can feature superheroes, or they can be prequels to beloved space movies; they can feature superheroes, or they can be sequels to beloved spy movies; they can feature superheroes, or they can be sequels to beloved heist movies. In some rare cases, they can feature, well, The Rock, who is essentially a superhero anyway. The point is, when Hollywood knows it has to release a movie that will attract as many eyeballs as possible — movies that will be comprehensible to people not only in the Americas, but to those in Europe and Asia as well — it plays it safe, and goes with the classics that people know and love.

Your September 2018 LSAT Instant Reaction

September test takers, congratulations! You woke up early, ate a nourishing breakfast, ambled over to your test center, checked in, fidgeted nervously as you waited for the test to start, completed five sections of intense multiple choice questions, and then wrote a short persuasive essay for some reason. And now finally — finally! — you can take a well-deserved rest. Or you can elect to drink deeply from the cup of life, imbibing sweet elixirs all night long. No matter how you decide to celebrate this achievement, you’ve earned it.

September 2018 Test Takers: You’re Going to Kill It Tomorrow

It’s a busy day for those taking the September LSAT: They have only one more day until their months-long nightmare has ended.

Based on my experience teaching the LSAT, almost no one feels ready for test day when it finally arrives. After all, there’s always something else you could have studied if you’d had just a little more time; you didn’t get around to reviewing Must Be True questions containing exactly 3.5 conditional statements, and what if LSAC decides to make this test one based entirely on Must Be True questions???!!!

Indubitable* Predictions for the September 2018 LSAT

Looking Past Your Practice Exam Scores

As you know by now, after completing and scoring a practice exam, you get assigned a three-digit number. And as you must also know by now, that three-digit number carries quite a bit of weight. It can be a source of consternation or pride, of panic or promise, of dread or relief. In fact, that three-digit score can seemingly say so much that many test takers believe the score is the final word on that practice exam.

But here’s what you may not know yet: those three-digit practice exam scores don’t say as much as you think.
