For those of you who thought that six (6) LSAT dates per year was a big change (it used to be four (4)), wait until you see what 2020 has in store! A total of ten (10) LSAT test dates per year is being planned by the LSAC – see the details and some other […]
In a perfect world, LSAT Prep students should be familiar with every single game ever issued on the LSAT, but that’s not realistic for many test-takers. So, one needs to focus one’s attention on the games most likely to matter, and develop the skill set to handle any type of game.
As many students know, beginning this year, the LSAC added more options for taking the LSAT. Instead of four (4) options per year, you now have six (6) test dates. At first glance, that is a good thing. But it can be an illusory benefit, and may even be counterproductive, for students who don’t fully […]
In previous posts, I’ve mentioned the study by the LSAC – unaffiliated with any LSAT Prep company – that found students taking independent LSAT Prep courses like ScoreItUp do significantly better on the LSAT on average than do students using any other form of LSAT Prep, including (1) students relying upon “self study,” (2) students relying […]
The number of LSAT-takers sitting for the most recent LSAT (February 2018) increased a 13.6% compared to February 2017, one year ago. Perhaps more meaningfully, the cumulative increase in LSAT takers over the past year (including the June 2017, September 2017, December 2017 and February 2018 LSATs) increased 18.1% over the past year.
So, how does the new July 23, 2018 LSAT option affect you if you are planning to take the June or September 2018 LSAT? The good news is that it gives you some added flexibility. But, unless you want to take some exotic vacation during the June 11th or September 8th timeframe, it probably shouldn’t […]
For all of you pre-law students interested in learning more about the LSAT, law school, practicing law, and ScoreItUp LSAT Prep courses, I routinely give FREE workshops at local Universities. Here are the upcoming ones (at UCI, CSUF and Chapman University):
We are living in an exciting time for law students and pre-law students. As my long-time readers know, law school enrollment had been on a substantial decline from 2010-2015. Things have changed, however. The economy has been improving noticeably over the past couple years.
One question I often get from students at this time of year is: should I cram to take the February LSAT and begin law school in Fall 2018, or delay law school for a year. Here are some thoughts to consider:
If you took the December 2017 LSAT, you should receive your LSAT score today. As always, some people are pleased, some are disappointed, and some have mixed emotions. Here are my suggestions for all of you:
