Logical Reasonings

A. LSAC has learned the error of its score release ways, and will release the July 2018 scores on Friday, starting at 9 am Eastern. @Official_LSAT

B. Here’s a new update to the much maligned writing sample: LSAC is conducting field tests for an do-it-at-home version of the writing sample. It’s sending out invitations to volunteers for the field test — those who accept the invitation won’t get to skip the writing sample on the real LSAT, but they will get a free law school report. @DaveKilloran

C. Will the ABA’s decision to keep the rule that requires law schools to use a standardized test for admissions stymie the number of schools that are accepting the GRE in lieu of the LSAT? Maybe, given the costs and time needed to satisfy the rule’s requirement that school’s using alternate tests demonstrate the reliability of those tests. ABA Journal

D. A new study shows that the chances of getting good grades during 1L depends largely on whether you look like your professor … which is great news for white cis men, who are finally getting a much-needed advantage.

E. On the importance of not having a loan-shaming SO in law school. Above the Law
