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."

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..

June 2017 LSAT Two Weeks Away: Why it’s Time for Consolidation, Not Innovation

Two weeks in front of the LSAT, if you’ve properly prepared for the test, it's time to consolidate what you’ve done and fine-tune it; it’s not time to innovate or develop entirely new strategies. The reason is integral to the demands of the LSAT.  A test-taker needs to have two related but distinct abilities...

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.

Law School, Without the LSAT? Not on the American Bar Association’s (Selective) Watch

Two weeks ago, news broke that Rutgers School of Law–Camden was publicly censured and fined by the American Bar Association for utilizing standardized tests (such as the GRE, the GMAT, or the MCAT) rather than the LSAT to admit a percentage of several incoming classes since 2006.

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.
