Questions, quizzes, and the perfect 180
January 17, 2018
When I was graduating from college, I took the LSAT without studying and got a pretty good score, which motivated me to apply to Stanford and Harvard Law, both of which rejected me. A few years later, I took the LSAT again, this time achieving a near-perfect score but with the same results at SLS and HLS, probably because my GPA was admittedly mediocre.
Time passed, and still law school remained a dream. A few years ago I decided to give it another try, but for my third time around I studied like crazy, those innate test-taking skills having mostly evaporated in the course of everyday life. I got a decent but not great score, and blew right past HLS and SLS to apply to lower-tier schools. I was accepted by three, but for various reasons could not make that jump.
I've still got law school on the radar, foolish as that may sound, and there's nothing better to keep my brain in LSAT shape than the Kaplan guides. They give you exposure to all types of questions, along with throughout explanations -- the logic games used to be my favorite and now they flummox me the most -- and I also like the access to the online tools. Plus studying for the LSAT is a much more gratifying brain-sharpening exercise than completing Sudoku or crossword puzzles.
Boys and girls, don't follow my example. Earn As in every course. Get this book. Take the LSAT. Go to the best school that will accept you. Whatever you choose to do with your life, you'll have had that training...and maybe, fewer regrets.
