It’s fairly common knowledge that the LSAT is a hard test. For those taking the test and paying attention to such things, it’s also fairly common to know that you can get a few questions wrong to still get a perfect 180 (on some test forms, up to 3 questions). Read more
Good news for test-takers: the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) recently increased access to testing accommodations. If you’ve previously qualified for extended time (XT) on the SAT, SAT II, ACT, GED, GRE, GMAT, DAT, or MCAT, you now automatically qualify for extended time on the LSAT. (This post will focus on XT, but you can check out a full list of accommodations here.) Moreover, LSAC will not annotate your score report, so schools cannot discriminate against students with accommodations. Read more

Last month, I wrote about how diving into Shakespeare can help you improve your LSAT Reading Comprehension score, by forcing you to “read for the scale.” (If you’re not sure what that means, check out the article!)

One tried and true way to improve your LSAT score is to study the right strategies. How should you diagram an Open Grouping game? How should you approach a Sufficient Assumption question? And what the heck is conditional logic? Read more
Note: If you haven’t yet read Allison Bell’s post on LSAT motivation, I highly recommend you check it out here. This post is inspired by both a comment from my lovely wife and that post.
At the end of Allison’s post, she mentions finding a study partner (or partners, plural—small group or paired study is very, very effective). I’m hoping to follow up on that post with some ideas on how to make these group study sessions more efficient. Read more
