Above the Law

"Speaking of law schools, if you're thinking of going, this is the kind of analysis you should undertake"


"I have never before formally endorsed a 'commercial' outfit. Advise-In Solutions is more than another test preparation company. It is a full-service program with the objective of helping every student enrolled in the program earn his or her best score on the LSAT, helping those students put together impressive applications to law school, and actually providing them with the chance to simulate the law school experience prior to matriculation. The biggest difference between Advise-In and other companies is its founder, Dr. Kyle Pasewark."

The Virtue of Simplicity in LSAT Prep

Advise-In’s very first blog post was about simplifying the LSAT. I warned about the “blizzard of paper” that LSAT study guides and programs produce, which make studying for the test more difficult rather than easier. There are too many decisions to make and each one of them takes you away from the words on the test page, which is what you need to focus on during a pressurized exam day.

Harvard Law Accepts GRE as Alternative to LSAT:  Big News (Or Is It?)

The LSAT has enjoyed a monopoly over law school admissions testing for a long,long, long time. Last year, the University of Arizona announced that it would accept Graduate Record Exam (GRE) results in addition to LSATresults in admissions decisions. Recently, Harvard Law School announced a “pilot program” to do the same thing.

Test-Taking Consistency: A Key to Your Best LSAT Score

LSAT success depends on two things: understanding the content of the test and executing that understanding time after time after time.  It is astonishing how many LSAT prep courses and study aids focus only on the first. The result is that a lot of LSAT takers feel like they knew the material better than they could show in the actual test. That’s because the second key to success—test-taking—is ignored, and the result is that test takers leave a lot of points on the table.

Path Games: The Undead of LSAT Analytical Reasoning (Logic Games)

At Advise-In Solutions, we counsel our clients not to pay attention to the readings of tea leaves about the LSAT that are all over the internet. It’s a fool’s errand because it takes your focus away from doing what you need to do—prepare for the 20 or so question types the LSAT has used for over 25 years now. Guessing at how many assumption questions they’ll ask, whether there will be more main point questions than there were last test, etc., which some LSAT advisors talk about endlessly, doesn’t help you. You’ll be wrong as often as you’re right. You need to be prepared for each question type and be prepared for the test environment. That’s all, and it’s a lot.

An Analytical Reasoning (Logic Games) Primer: Part II

To recall the foundational points I discussed in my previous entry: this is only meant to be a brief introduction to get you started, and should not serve as a substitute for a comprehensive LSAT preparation program – even if you are a fan of written LSAT prep materials, which I am not. But all caveats aside, I will begin my short, simple “primer” on LSAT analytical reasoning (logic games) questions…

An Analytical Reasoning (Logic Games) Primer: Part I

People often ask me about the different “types” of questions on the LSAT. For example, without getting too in-depth, I’ve commented that there are 7 distinct types of questions you may encounter in the Analytical Reasoning (better known as the “logic games”) section. But before giving a quick summary of my answer about the “types” of Analytical Reasoning questions you might encounter, I want to emphasize a few things…

A Long Winter Might Lead to…Law School

It’s that time of the year in the Northeast: deep winter. Even our friend in Punxsutawny went back to bed last week after poking his head out for a moment in the weather we’ve been having lately, and another big storm is on the way.

A Counter-Perspective (Are We Being Too Negative About the Legal Market?): Part II

To continue our reaction to Ryan Calo's Forbes piece on the legal job (and education) market—should you, as a potential 2014 law school applicant, be optimistic? Well, let's first summarize our previous entry: so, law school is a bigger risk than it was ten years ago—maybe not 20 years ago, but certainly ten. The drop in applications clearly does create opportunities for applicants, since the same personal statement, LSAT score and grade point averages will likely get you into a better law school (read, “with better job prospects”) than it would have five years ago. But there are still more applicants than there are seats, and it’s still expensive.
