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."

Keeping Your Head in the LSAT Game:  Focus-Recovery Rituals

Preparing for the LSAT is a lot like athletic training.  I’ve occasionally posted blogs using sports analogies because I do believe that preparing for taking the LSAT is a lot like preparing for and playing a game.  Now there’s a story in The Atlantic on Ana Ivanovic, the 22-year-old former top-ranked tennis player who has “slowly come undone on the tennis court” to the point that she was unseeded at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open, losing in the first round of Wimbledon before making a recovery in the U.S. Open, losing in the fourth round to eventual champion Kim Clijsters.



Survey Says:  It’s Not Just Your LSAT Score and GPA That Matter for Law School Admissions

I work hard with clients on their LSAT preparation and post a lot of LSAT-related blogs.  I’m also clear that law school applicants should not fixate on the LSAT to the exclusion of the rest of their application package.  While the LSAT is a key piece—often the most important piece—of the application puzzle, “most important” isn’t the same as “only important.”

What Cognitive Research Can Tell You About Studying for the LSAT

If you’re preparing for the LSAT, you can do yourself a favor by reading the recent New York Times’ article, “Forget What You Know About Good Study Habits.”  It summarizes a lot of useful research about how people learn most effectively.

Before August Job Report, a Quick Look Back at the Legal Employment Market

This Friday, (ironically) going into the Labor Day weekend, the US government’s job report for August will be released.  For what it’s worth, the early consensus is that the report won’t be good.



Dean Takes on Students in New Jersey Employment Food Fight
