The LSAT Prep Adventures of Cecilia Tsoukalos: That’s a Rap

The countdown continues, as we are less than 40 days away from the June LSAT. How are you feeling? Anxious? Stressed? Shock and awe? Most likely it’s a combo. But you shouldn’t be worried if you aren’t scoring a 170+ yet. All in good time, y’all.

I experienced my first ever LSAT dream the other night. I won’t go into to too many details, but it involved sharing a testing room with Snoop Dogg. In actuality my testing location will be in Inglewood, so it would have been more accurate had Tupac been in my dream, but I can’t get too technical with my subconscious. Snoop Dogg was sitting next to me and I kept asking him if he knew which section of the LSAT was the experimental. I would have rather dreamt of ponies, or James Franco, but instead I got the LSAT. If the LSAT is constantly on your brain/in your dreams, you’re probably doing something right. Congratulations, you’re totally submerged in the material.

Just to keep you on your toes, enjoy this lovely LSAT grouping game I’ve put together, in honor of my Snoop-Dogg-takes-the-LSAT dream (answers at the end):

This summer nine hip-hop superstars will join forces to put on the largest hip-hop concert the world has ever seen. The line up will consist of five old school rappers and four currently popular rappers. Due to long existing feuds and Lil Wayne’s syrup habit, there are several restrictions governing the lineup. The old school rappers confirmed are Dr. Dre, Hologram Tupac, Ice Cube, Nas and Snoop Dogg. The current hip-hop artists are Drake, Kid Cudi, Lil Wayne and Wiz Kahlifa. The nine rappers will be assigned to four duos. The duo lineups have to abide by the following conditions:

Each rapper is assigned to at most one duo
At least one rapper on each team must be old school
Ice Cube cannot be booked with Drake
If Lil Wayne is assigned to a duo, either Hologram Tupac or Nas must be performing with him
Neither Snoop Dogg nor Drake nor Wiz Kahlifa can be assigned to a duo with Dr. Dre

1. Which of the following is a new rapper who can be billed with Dr. Dre?
a) Wiz Kahlifa
b) ASAP Rocky
c) Lil Wayne
d) Drake
e) Kid Cudi

2. Which one of the following is a duo that can be assigned to a set together?
a. Dr. Dre and Drake
b. Ice Cube and Snoop Dogg
c. Dr. Dre and Wiz Kahlifa
d. Drake and Lil Wayne
e. Kid Cudi and Wiz Kahlifa

3. If Hologram Tupac has a technical malfunction and cannot perform, then Ice Cube must be assigned to a duo with
a. Snoop Dogg
b. Lil Wayne
c. Wiz Kahlifa
d. Nas
e. Dr. Dre

4. If Lil Wayne is assigned to a duo, and if Kid Cudi is billed to perform with a rapper who could have performed with Lil Wayne, then the only rapper Dr. Dre could perform with could be
a. Drake
b. Ice Cube
c. Snoop Dogg
d. Hologram Tupac
e. Wiz Kahlifa

I know what you’re thinking: I wish Bushwick Bill had made the lineup, too. At this point, this game should be a walk in the park. But I’d love to hear your feedback, so feel free to comment below. If you’d like to post about your favorite hip-hop mogul/ dream team duo, feel free to comment as well.

For those of you taking LSAT Practice Exam 2 this weekend, be sure to rest up the night before. And best of luck!
