How Did You Do on the September LSAT?

Yesterday was the last major milestone in the circle of September LSAT prep (naaaaants ingonyama bagithi baba): score release day.

After weeks of anxiety, preppers got to experience just a little bit more — one final gift from LSAC — as scores rolled out painfully slowly, amid reports of crashes on the LSAC website. But hopefully the wait was worth it.

The September curve came in at -12 (that’s twelve wrong answers for a score of 170), slightly less generous than the previous two LSAT’s, but still more lenient than the historical average. This makes some amount of sense, as most of what we’ve heard suggests a fairly middle of the road exam: no outrageously difficult or surprising sections, but nothing that could be called a cakewalk, either.

DIY: Spooky Law School Halloween Costumes

I’m halfway through my first semester at law school. I’m starting to think like a lawyer more and more. I look at every decision from both angles, and frankly it’s stressing me out…

I’m having a hard time deciding what I should be for Halloween.

How about a suit made entirely of statutes and cases? Get it? It’s a law suit! Or I could roll out a rug made of statutes and cases and walk on it everywhere I go. I’d be above the law!

Erm, okay. How about…

How about I get one of those toddler sized slides, oil it up, and tape it to myself? I’ll be that old stalwart legal argument: the slippery slope. I guess that could get a bit too messy; plus, I have a bad history with taping objects to my body (don’t ask).

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.
