The Most Taxing Parts of Applying to Law School

It’s tax day, but since you’re reading this blog, taxes probably aren’t the only potentially tedious and painful item on your plate. Applying to law school is taxing in its own special way.

Most taxing in terms of time investment: Technically, your GPA is probably the aspect of your law school application in which you’ve invested the most time. But you probably would’ve done all that work even if you weren’t going to law school, so we won’t count it.

The second most time-consuming aspect of your application is the LSAT. Note that you don’t have to spend too much time on the LSAT — you can theoretically just show up — but if you’re doing it well, you’ll want to spend at least 3 months studying (and that would be 3 months of very intense studying).

Most taxing in terms of money: Applying to law school is, in general, an expensive process.

Use Bubba Watson as Inspiration to Become an LSAT Master

On Sunday, Bubba Watson captured his second green jacket by winning the 2014 Masters tournament. While golf and the LSAT may not seem to have too much in common (apart from causing incredible amounts of frustration and driving many to drinking), Watson’s performance can be a source of inspiration for LSAT students in several ways.

Tip #1 on Becoming an LSAT Master: Mistake Minimization

Over the course of four days and 72 holes, Bubba Watson finished only one round of golf over-par. Augusta National, the home of the Masters tournament, is one of the most difficult courses in the world, and it is made even more difficult for the Masters.
