Gobble gobble gobble!

The December LSAT is coming up in ten days. That’s enough to seriously put a damper on your Thanksgiving weekend plans. But even LSAT students have some things to be thankful for tomorrow. Let’s run through them.

Two-page logic games

You may not know this, but back when we had to walk to school in the snow every day, uphill both ways (actually as recently as February 2012), logic games were printed on one page each. Sometimes the printed text took up almost the entire page and you had to do your scratch work really tiny in the margins. You’d better hope you had a really sharp pencil. Now, you have plenty of room. Be thankful. We won’t talk about the handful of brutal games in the last couple years right now.

Note: As of August 2024, the LSAT will no longer have a Logic Games Section. The June 2024 exam will be the final LSAT with Logic Games. Learn more about the change here.

Lower law school application numbers

Okay, this trend shows signs of slowing or maybe even reversing. But first-year enrollment is down roughly 30% since 2010. That means it’s easier to get in to law school. It also means less competition for jobs when you get out. It’s still important to look carefully at job prospects as you choose a law school, but good news is good news, right?

A day off

Take tomorrow off studying. If you insist on studying, do it in the morning and when you’re done, you’re done. You need time away from the LSAT to let everything you’ve been doing sink in. It’ll be good for your score. You also need your family not to disown you, and not ditching them to study for a standardized test is a good start.

Happy Thanksgiving. We hope you have a great day with whomever you spend it with. And since we’re your LSAT instructors, how about ditching that Black Friday shopping to take a practice test? We only have your best interests at heart.
