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."

Verdict on New LSAT Format: Digital May Be Better

I’ve been talking to clients and others who took the digital form of the LSAT earlier in July. As a reminder, all LSATs from here on out will be in that format.  Their verdict: if anything, this format is better.

Onscreen LSAT: Should It Change Your Plans?

The Law School Admissions Council announced awhile back that July’s LSAT would be the last to be administered, at least partially, in the old pencil-and-paper format. The announcement was made without a lot of fuss but the LSAT industry immediately posted a bunch of blogs that opined on how important the shift was and largely tried to move up potential customers’ test date by instilling a little bit of fear about the new format.  I waited until I'd thought about the implications of the change.  For those thinking about when to take the test, my short answer is, with very few exceptions, Change nothing.

Expanded LSAT Opportunities: Implication for Law School Admissions?

The LSAT is now being administered six times a year rather than four.  In part, this is to try to head off the inroads that the GRE is making into the Law School Admission Council’s territory.  What will be the impact of the additional dates on law school admissions?

Advise-In Solutions LSAT Results Continue to be Outstanding

During the past year, my clients and I have achieved truly outstanding LSAT results. My clients have averaged increased scores of over 13 points and over 42 percentiles. That means that, on average, they have passed nearly half of everyone who was in front of them when they started. Increases of around those numbers on an annual basis have been hallmarks of Advise-In Solutions since we started in 2010.

Best LSAT Prep: It’s Mental Athletics, Prepare That Way (part 2)

In my last post, I framed the LSAT as a mental athletic contest. Your objective isn’t just understanding the material on the LSAT, it’s also performing when you have to perform.  Most LSAT prep programs don’t spend any attention on the second of these, and that’s one reason why people’s scores often fall on test day—not just a little bit, but dramatically. You have to approach some basics correctly. You have to know your opponent, know that there are rules and know the defense  (that is, what are they throwing at you). Here, I want to talk mostly about the last of these.

Best LSAT Prep: It’s Mental Athletics, Prepare That Way (part 1)

The LSAT is a game. It has rules established by the LSAC and the LSAT plays by them. I am convinced that the failure to appreciate the LSAT as a sport damages LSAT performance. To succeed on the LSAT, you have to do two things successfully.

The Virtues of Simplicity on the LSAT

The LSAT is a hard test because the writers are very good at writing tests.  What makes it hard is just that—not that it’s complicated because it’s not.  The writers have a clear theory of argument in mind and they stick to it; no tricks, no sneak attacks, no changing of the rules; they play by the rules.  The simpler your approach, the better.  Simplicity has two virtues: it makes you both more accurate and more efficient..

Retaking the LSAT: Factors (and Facts) You Should Consider

When I first started Advise-In Solutions, one of my first blog posts—and advice I’ve given to countless prospective LSAT re-takers since—was about the factors you should consider when thinking about whether to retake the LSAT if you were not satisfied with your initial score.  The general points: avoid confirmation bias, and avoid thinking you are an exception to the data without clearly understanding why you think so.

LSAT Annual Testing Dates Increase in 2018-2019: What the Change Means (So Far)

For years, the LSAT has been offered 4 times per cycle, in June, September/October, December and February. The Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) recently changed that. In the 2018-2019 cycle, the test will be offered in June, September and November 2018, and January and March 2019.  Is the change good for future law school applicants?  How will law school admissions adjust?
