Your “Wrong Answer Log:” where the magic of LSAT improvement actually happens

Posted by Zach H. on 10/13/20 7:38 AM

The LSAT is hard for everyone. Most LSAT students find some percentage of the practice questions they encounter to be pretty easy, solvable through college-level critical thinking alone. However, all LSAT students discover at some point that a significant portion of practice questions demand a level of acuity and analytical skill that transcends whatever they brought into their LSAT journey as a baseline. Things get hard. You get questions wrong.

All of your acceptances have come in and it’s time for the fun part – deciding where to go.

The secret to understanding a RC passage on the LSAT

Posted by Brian De. on 12/11/19 11:00 AM

Have you ever read something, and when you get to the bottom of the page, you realize that you didn’t understand a single word in the passage? If you answered yes, you’re in good company, especially as it pertains to the LSAT. For months, I couldn’t get through an RC section without having to reread multiple paragraphs.

There are those who begin as premedical students, but then learn about how important malpractice law is to the medical profession. There are others who realize that develop long-term business goals that you believe an MBA will further. And finally, for people like me who caught the empirical research bug early on, a PhD in concert with law school is essential.

Law School Admissions: Taking the GRE or the LSAT (or both)

Posted by Jimmy B. on 11/22/19 11:00 AM

Increasingly, law schools are rethinking the LSAT as the best (and only) metric of law school success. Its predictive value has long been questioned, and law school deans often publicly question how useful a tool it is (and then proceed to use it, powerfully, anyways).
