The LSAT and Coachella: More in Common Than You’d Think

Scoring high on the LSAT and at Coachella mean totally different things, but this past weekend I discovered that some things LSAT prep and some things Coachella are totally the same!

Picture a Venn diagram. It’s easy. I do it all the time. Label one circle LSAT prep and the other Coachella. In the narrow football shaped cross-section of the LSAT prep slash Coachella Venn diagram, I found the following nuggets of wisdom:

How the LSAT is Like Coachella I: You will lose track of your friends
