Non-Sequiturs from the June 2018 LSAT


After its release last Thursday night, we are currently hard at work breaking down the June 2018 LSAT to help you make sense of that exam. We’ll provide a section-by-section breakdown later this week, but in the meantime, we wanted to give you a little taste of the test.

Even more than the typical exam, there was some truly bonkers content on the June test. The writers of this test may very well have been micro-dosing ayahuasca as they constructed this one, because everything from the names they chose for people and places to the topics they discussed was super weird.

So, here are some real statements that actually appeared on last month’s LSAT, presented without comment:

“Constructing a self-driving robotic car requires expertise in fish biology”

“The medical team is technically guilty of manslaughter”

“Even a very young child can tell the difference between a lion and someone pretending to be a lion”

“Many features … contribute to a political official’s ability to perform well in office, but having an average blink rate is certainly not such a feature”

“If a person understood what science is really about, then that person would not be afraid of scientists”

“The arousal of anger is sometimes a legitimate artistic aim”

“Early flying dinosaurs had features on their toes”

“Those chimps who rarely or never display feelings of affections toward their associates”

“There is a purple dot on Wilson Street”

“Six corporations–Goh Industries, HCN, Lorilou, RST, SamsonGonzales, and VELSOR”

“Although most smokers are aware of the dangers of smoking, few are aware of the positive health effects of quitting”

“It is too early to understand e-books as a medium”

“Airborne sulfates are the main greenhouse gases”

“Taxonomic difficulties of such an approach are notorious”

“Unusual circumstances, such as a relatively sedentary lifestyle in a well supported urban environment”

“The evolution of soft parts of the digestive system”

“There are other practical difficulties, most notably that not all witnesses are susceptible to hypnosis”

Yes, this is still the test that tells you if you get to go to law school.
