For the December LSAT, Planning Ahead Is Key

It may still be October, but I’d like you to flash forward and imagine Sunday, November 30th. It’s the Sunday after Thanksgiving, so you’ll be stuffed with turkey, turducken, tofurkey, or some Frankenstein combination of the three. You’ll have had a few days off of school or work to spend with family and friends.

Sounds nice, doesn’t it? But what if I told you that the December LSAT will be six days away? And, if you’re in school, finals will be impending, too. Imagine feeling like you still have lots of LSAT studying you need to do. Plus, you have a bunch of schoolwork that needs to get done. Now. Or you’ll fail. And your law school applications are lurking in the background. Worst of all, your family is threatening to disown you because you barely even acknowledged them over your plate of tofurkey.

Don’t Let Anxiety Drive Law School Applications

I am writing to you from my happy place – I’m in Palm Springs. It’s good to get away sometimes, get out of the grind, and open myself up to new ideas. All week, I’ve known I wanted to (had to) write this article about anxiety, but until I got away, to a new place, I didn’t feel ready. New surroundings help clear my head. Heck, even an hour-long yoga class or the rare treat of a massage – anything that gives me time to let my thoughts emerge tends to result in my best ideas.

Which leads me to the whole point of this article: you need freedom to think in order to make good decisions about everything in the law school admission process, whether how to prepare for the LSAT or deciding what’s most important to you in a law school or what to write about in your personal statement – these are not decisions that can be made well under pressure.

LSAT Instructor: One Month Into Law School

Alright, so I know I said in my last Columbia related post that law school isn’t all that bad, but I think I’m starting to crack.

We were debating in small groups whether extreme starvation can justify murder, if it’s for the purpose of cannibalizing the victim’s body. Things got a little heated. I may have threatened to eat someone.

This was highly out of character for me. I’m eating about 6 meals a day. Good stuff.

Okay, maybe I’m not eating the best stuff all the time. I get a few sandwiches, and about once a week I have the delicious NYC street food known as chicken over rice. Five bucks gets you a delicious plate of buttery self-loathing.
