A Look at the September 2019 LSAT

The scores for the September 2019 LSAT were released this Monday, a cause for celebration and consternation for those who took that test. But, for disclosed tests like September, score-release day is also test-release day. On these days, LSAC releases this exam to the public. Us LSAT instructors can marvel at a shiny new object, revel in the new games and passages as we journey through the exam, and attempt to identify trends that can help us discern what future exams may behold.

In Defense of Logic Games

First, to be clear: I will not be arguing that test takers who are blind or visually impaired — like Angelo Binno, whose settlement with the Law School Admissions Council may eventually force LSAC to change or remove the Logic Games section altogether — should have to take the Logic Games section on the LSAT. I am neither a medical expert nor a psychometrician, but after working with an untold number of students I feel confident saying that visual aids like set-ups and scenarios make these games more manageable for basically everyone. It seems manifestly unfair that test takers who cannot use such visual aids should be forced to take the section, and I applaud Binno’s fight to level the LSAT’s playing field.

Is the LSAT Done Playing (Logic) Games with Us?

Since the 80s, LSAT test writers have forced test takers to battle some difficult Logic Games: circles, dinosaurs, buildings … the test writers have given us plenty to be shocked about. This week, some pretty startling news came out, giving test writers a constraint more difficult than anything seen on a test: within four years, the Logic Games section, as we know it, may be gone.

Which LSAT Concepts to Nail Down Before School Starts Back Up

The start of the school year is coming up, and that means one very important thing: everyone is going to be asking you what you did all summer.

Tips for the Dreaded “Substitute a Rule” Questions on Logic Games

If you’ve been playing logic games for long enough, you surely know the feeling: You’re cruising through the game, the questions seemingly answering themselves. A quick check of the rules here, a reference to your scenarios there — it’s all that’s needed to get through the questions. If you’re really feeling yourself, you might mutter something like, “They call me the ‘submarine sandwich,’ because I’m on a freaking roll” (Or … maybe that’s just me). Anyway, you’re feeling great.

Your End-of-Year Review of the 2018 LSATs

You guys, it’s been another fantastic year of the LSAT in the book. Well, if you had to take the LSAT this year, “fantastic” might not be the word that immediately springs to mind. But, at any rate, this year is over. I mean, sure, we technically have eleven more days and two major holidays left to go in 2018 (three if you’re in a Commonwealth country — shouts to Boxing Day). But, for all LSAT-related intents and purposes, this year is over. The final LSAT came and went and was released. Registration for the next LSAT has closed. Our classes have been put on a momentary hiatus for the holidays.
