LSAT Blog Interview: The LSAT Mindset

LSAT Blog Interview LSAT Mindset
LSAT Blog reader Jacob recently conducted a lengthy interview with me about the strategies of top-scoring LSAT takers.

(He did it as part of his research for a book very similar in nature to my compilations of the best tips from LSAT Diaries.)

Here's an excerpt from the interview:

In your courses on the LSAT, I know you cover subjects about high scorer habits. Why is it so important to learn about high scorer habits, or about habits in general?

June 2014 LSAT Score Release Dates

Good luck to everyone taking the June 2014 LSAT!

The June 2014 LSAT scores / results are scheduled to be released via email by Monday, July 7, 2014, so you'll have to wait for your LSAT score.

(Note: Test-takers' LSAC accounts are listing Thursday, July 3, as the score release date. I'm guessing this means scores will be released on that day, or possibly even sooner!)

However, the scores usually come out a bit earlier than scheduled.

Let's look at the trend over the past several years (click to enlarge):












LSAC doesn't like to release scores on major holidays, so a July 4 score release is unlikely. Weekend releases are uncommon, but possible. My guess is that they'll be released either Thursday, July 3, or Saturday, July 6.


"But at what time specifically do scores come on score release days? I need to know when to constantly refresh my email / LSAC account!"

In batches over the course of several hours. Likely starting late in the day (Eastern Time).

No one knows how the batches are organized, if at all.

The batches do not seem to be organized in any of these ways:

alphabetical/regional/high-to-low scores/low-to-high scores/test center #, etc.

Wish everyone all the best!

Please feel free to vent and discuss your general thoughts on the exam in the comments, but no specifics about particular questions themselves, please. (LSAC doesn't permit such discussion.)

Law Schools Might Stop Requiring LSAT Scores for 10% of Students

It's looking likely that the American Bar Association will soon allow law schools to admit students who haven't taken the LSAT.

The American Bar Association's governing council recently approved several changes to its standards. Among them was a change that would allow law schools to admit up to 10% of their entering classes even if these students have never taken the LSAT.

While the council's changes will go before the ABA's House of Delegates for review in August, the governing council still has the final say. Since the changes have made it this far, I'm guessing they'll become a reality.

Of course, Harvard Law and other top law schools are unlikely to stop requiring the LSAT for admission anytime soon. However, fourth-tier law schools may take full advantage of the change in order to woo applicants who'd be likely to do poorly on it anyway.

With the recent decline in the number of law school applications, these overpriced law schools need all the help they can get to fill their seats. Being permitted to stop requiring the LSAT will probably do a lot to help them keep that tuition money coming in.
