More Details on the Digital LSAT!

For years, I’ve had two primary complaints about the LSAT: (1) the writing sample is a sadistic, useless waste of time and (2) the test administration method is woefully outdated.

The Supposed Law School “Brain Drain”

There’s been some freaking out online about law school applications. In other news, they’re airing reality TV shows on Bravo. This time, the freak out is over the quality of law school applicants.
