Struggles of Applying to Law School

Image by Green Chameleon
 

   It's no secret that applying to law school is an intimidating process. It can involve months of preparation between studying for and writing the LSAT (multiple times if need be), gathering your reference letters, and doing research into which schools you’ll be applying to. It isn’t easy, but it is definitely doable and incredibly rewarding by the end of it. This blog outlines the experiences of Haben Dawit and Alessandra Giorgi, two undergraduate students who went through this process and have a story to tell. Please keep in mind that the experiences of each applicant is unique and there is almost never a “cookie cutter” situation to generalize the experiences of more than a handful of students. Nonetheless, we are hoping to provide you with a general outline on what the process entails and give you insight into how these two applicants navigated through the process and made the most of it.

 

   In order to understand what makes a strong application you must familiarize yourself with each of the required components for admissions:

• GPA (Grade Point Average)

• LSAT Score(s) (Law School Admissions Test)

• Extracurriculars/SOFTS

• Personal Statement(s)

• References/Referees

 

   We will be taking a deep dive into each of these five components, how they are relevant to your application and most importantly our experience in tackling them!

 

   Generally, most law schools will reference each of these five components in three main categories that make up the totality of your application:

  • GPA

  • LSAT

  • Personal Statements(s) (which includes, Extracurriculars/”SOFTS,” References/Referees)

 

   Thus, these categories are viewed equally as each makes up ⅓ of your total application. It must be noted that you do not have to be perfect in all three categories to be a successful applicant. For the most part, law schools recognize that there may be underlying circumstances to having a low GPA, LSAT score or poor-quality personal statement. For example, the LSAT is an expensive test that requires resources and materials that all cost money. Whether you opt to take a course or self-study, you are incurring expenses that are not always excisable to some students. You of course want to focus your efforts on improving each of these categories as it will increase your chances of having a successful application. However, we want you to know that doing well in all the categories is not a necessary condition for success. Most law schools adopt a “holistic” approach to their application review process. This means that they weigh each of the three areas equally. This is why a strong section can sometimes compensate for another section that is not as strong. For instance, if you have a strong GPA but weak LSAT, the former will help make up for the shortcoming of the latter. It is best to have as many strong sections as possible, but schools use a holistic approach because they know this is not always possible!

 

Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)

Haben's Account

 

   During the admissions process, your cumulative grade point average comprises a third of what law schools consider. It is important to keep in mind that law schools convert all CGPA's according to a standardized 4.0, OLSAS scale. This conversion scale can be found on the OLSAS website. What students often find, including myself, is that your CGPA on your transcript will be higher than what ends up being the final coefficient that law schools look at. In other words, if you have a 3.8 on a 4.33 scale, after conversion, your CGPA may end up in the 3.7 strata. This may come as a deterrent to many, but this is simply the process all applicants experience. Your final CGPA shouldn't deviate too considerably from your original average, but it really depends on the specific grades you obtained during your undergraduate studies.

 

   Different schools will also look at different years of your studies and place greater emphasis on particular ones. For instance, Western Law places greater emphasis on your last two years (called your "L2') than your CGPA, but the admissions committee still looks at the latter. On the other hand, UofT Law looks at your best three years (called your "B3"), which, if you are applying in your fourth year, will simply be every grade you've obtained hitherto.

 

   Nonetheless, suppose you are looking to see where you fall relative to other applicants at a particular school. In that case, it goes a long way to look at the "median "CGPA'' of previous years. Osgoode Hall typically doesn't make available this number, but claims that a "competitive" CGPA will be around a 3.7 after conversion. This is not to say that you have little to no chance of obtaining an admission if you do not meet or surpass these numbers. I have met with many individuals whose CGPA and LSAT scores were far below the average but still managed to gain admission. After all, these quantitative elements of your application only comprise 2/3 of your application. A solid personal statement can be extremely important in helping compensate for a subpar CGPA and/or LSAT score.

 

   It goes without saying that a better CGPA will make you a more competitive applicant. My best advice for younger students would be to ensure that you take classes you legitimately enjoy because this means you probably won't see readings and assignments as a nuisance and have a better chance of doing well in them. If you are an older student, it may be beneficial to do an extra year (or consider graduate school) to get those numbers higher. If this is not a tenable prospect for you, remember that other elements of your application are also very important, and capitalizing on them can go a long way in making you a more formidable applicant. Work hard and keep your future aspirations in mind!

 

Personal Statement

Haben's Account

 

   Numbers are important, but they aren't the be-all and end-all of your application. When your LSAT is said and done and your final semester GPA is set in stone (theoretically), your personal statement is the last opportunity you have to shine. Each school typically has different things they ask about in their respective statements, but they all generally revolve around "why you," "why law," and "why our school." Some have optional essays, and others have only mandatory components of the statement. Each school limits you via character count (harder to adhere to than a word count). Many schools have shorter statements than you'd expect. Take Osgoode, for instance- their personal statement allows for only 2000 characters (approximately 330 words) per section. This is not a lot of space when you are looking to explain your future aspirations in a convincing manner, but it is definitely doable.

 

   When deciding what you wish to talk about in your statements, there are a few things you should ask yourself. Have I experienced traumatic/consequential/significant events in my life that have helped shape who I am today? If so, how did they change me, and how did I persevere through them? Also, did you acquire academic and leadership-oriented skills and experiences during your undergraduate years? Once again, how have they shaped who you are today? No matter what you talk about, always tie it into a central narrative and theme. Your statements should flow like a story; it is better to cover a few things and illustrate their impacts rather than superficially touch on many things. This is important for admissions committees to understand what kind of person you are and how you became it.

 

   In my statement, I talked about associating myself with tenacious members of the Black legal community who instilled with me a love for learning and leadership qualities. I then used these learned skills to help other students through tutoring and other extracurricular activities. What is evident here is that I applied what I was taught and took active steps to better myself as a person and a student.

 

   Your statement really has to sell you. Avoid cliche stories or seeming overconfident. Be concise, clear, and coherent to your reader, and avoid academic jargon because that can hurt the flowing of the story. Strike a balance between sophisticated and ordinary, day-to-day language so that the reader understands you are both a bright person but also someone you'd want to be friends with. I recommend opening a word document a few months before you start your statement and start jotting down ideas you want to touch on when it comes time to write your statement. I did this and it saved me enormous time when it came to the writing stage. Applications open in early September, so go to each school on the OLSAS page, copy down their statements, and begin drafting ideas for each institution. Try to have your first draft done by the end of September, then use October to edit, review, and make it as good as possible for November 1st.

 

   Try to get mentors, law students, professionals, and friends/family to read your statement. You want the insight of people who have been through the process as well as the opinion of normal people to see if it's convincing and makes sense to them. Fresh sets of eyes are always helpful. Take their criticisms and commendations seriously and remember they only want the best for you! Also, make mention of each specific school in their statements, but don't dwell on it too much. Dedicate two sentences max to the schools; remember, the statement is about YOU, not them! They know how great they are, so use all that precious space making you seem amazing! Perhaps mention specific clinical opportunities, professors, courses, or anything that makes it clear that you've done your research!

 

   Before submitting, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Is my statement mundane/ordinary or fascinating and unique?

  • Is there a central narrative and theme to my story or is it all over the place?

  • Does this statement make me seem like an interesting person?

  • Can a reader see, after reading my statement, why I wish to pursue law?

  • Are my reviewers convinced that this specific school is right for me?

 

Autobiographical Sketch

Haben's Account

 

   Your autobiographical sketch (ABS) is a component of your application where you list all the awards and accomplishments, volunteer work, extracurricular activities, and/or research you have done and obtained during your undergraduate or graduate studies. This is not an incredibly consequential element of your application but still helps prove to admissions committees why you may or may not be a good suit for their entering class.

Please do not feel an inclination to join clubs that specifically pertain to law. Any and all extracurricular activities are valued as long as you are participating in something meaningful. Organizations that relate to law sure help, but they are not the be-all and end-all of the ABS.

You will also be required to list a “verifier” for each of these components. A verifier is someone who can attest to your participation in these activities or collection of these awards and accomplishments. They will ask for their basic contact information and may feel inclined to reach out to them if they wish to know more. So ensure that you list someone who can vouch for you in some capacity.

 

   It is important that you begin joining extracurriculars and pursuing volunteer work early. Law school admissions like to see students who are engaged in these things for a long period, and not a few months before the applications are due. Quality is always better than quantity however. Proving that you can balance school and activities on the side is an asset that law school admissions admire. If you can participate in a few activities that are interesting and influential, that will suffice. I met with many applicants who boasted about the number of entries they had but failed to elaborate on how these activities shaped them as a person. Don’t be this kind of student (for your sake!). Do things you enjoy and that will help shape the lives of others. You don’t need to volunteer in a refugee camp in the Middle East (although that would be amazing) but instead can do things in your school or community that speak to you as a person. In my case, some of my activities included being a Research Assistant for a non-profit organization, Director at a pre-law club at my school, and private tutor of high school students. Find your calling and pursue it!

References

Haben's Account

 

   With respect to references, I made a conscious effort to foster good relationships with my employers and professors early on. This is important so that your potential referees actually have something of substance to say about you. I had two referees, both professors. I attended their office hours, took three classes with both, respectively, and finished with a great grade in all of them (try to aim for the “A” strata)! I genuinely enjoyed talking to them, and knowing them on a first-name basis is important so that they can recall how often you attended class and whether or not you contributed to class discussions. Facilitate good relations early on, and you’ll be golden. Even if you do not want to talk about coursework, professors are usually more than happy to discuss their own research and experiences in academia.

Some schools, like Windsor Law, require one academic and one non-academic referee, so make sure to research the specific requirements of each school before you reach out to your references. Most other schools in Ontario do not specify what kind of reference you need, but most recommend at least one academic referee. Lastly, be sure to email or chat with your referees way beforehand; they likely receive plenty of requests, so it’s good to get there first! Applications in Ontario are due November 1st, so try to reach out in June or July to give them a heads up, then follow up in September or October to give them ample time to write the letters of support.

Law School Admission Test (LSAT)

Alessandra's Account

 

   Preface:

   I would like to begin by saying, yes, the LSAT is a difficult test. It is probably one of the most frustrating tests I have ever written. However, it is not an impossible test, and it truly is a mental marathon that requires continuous brain training. Although I do not want that to scare you, this is good news! Why? It means you have the power to train your brain to tackle this not-so-impossible test.

 

   What is the LSAT?

   The Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) is necessary to gain admissions into most Canadian law schools. This vital aspect of the admissions process makes up roughly ⅓ of your total application. Unlike many tests you may have taken in your undergrad, the LSAT is not content-based and instead tests your reading comprehension, logical and verbal reasoning abilities. Importantly, you do not need to have any previous knowledge or understanding of the law to write the LSAT.

 

   In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the structure of LSAT has gone through many changes in recent months. Regardless, the traditional or pre-pandemic version of the test has always been comprised of six sections: (Test takers are given thirty-five minutes to complete each section of the LSAT, pending you do not any test day accommodations)

  • One Logic Games Section (LG)

  • One Reading Comprehension Section (RC)

  • Two Logical Reasoning Sections (LR)

  • One Unmarked Section

  • One Writing Sample Section

 

   It is worth noting that you are only scored on four of the six sections listed above. You are scored on the one LG section, one RC section and both (two) LR sections. The unmarked section is unscored and is administered to test takers by the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) to validate new test questions for future use. The catch is, you will NOT know which one is the unscored section when writing your test. Thus, you should NOT attempt to guess which one is unscored on test day and instead focus your efforts on succeeding in all parts.

 

   The last section of the LSAT is the writing sample. Regardless of Covid-19 protocols, the writing sample is always written at home online. Closer to your registered test date, LSAC will provide you with further details on how to access the sample and when to take it. This section consists of a dilemma or decision prompt, where you will be required to write in favour of a choice among two possible options. The sample does not count towards your overall score; however, LSAC will send your writing sample to each law school you have applied to. It is unclear how much weight is placed on the sample and whether law schools even take the time to look at it. Nevertheless, you should take the section seriously though I would not recommend you spend time studying or preparing for it.

 

   What I want you to take away from the writing sample:

  1. It is mandatory: Your file is not complete until you have completed and submitted at least one writing sample. LSAC takes this seriously and will withhold your score until the sample is complete. I would recommend getting it over with as it is the least stressful part of the LSAT.

  2. You only need to complete it once: Candidates are only required to have one writing sample on file, regardless of how many times you write the LSAT.

  3. As I previously mentioned, it is unscored!

 

   The LSAT in a Pandemic:

   In the COVID-19 pandemic, many organizations had to adopt new ways to conduct old routines. The law school admissions process was no exception, and the virtual LSAT-Flex was introduced in 2020 to accommodate social distancing practices. I wrote the June 2021 LSAT-Flex; this test consisted of three scored sections (one LG, one RC and one LR) and one unscored writing sample. I will not spend too much time discussing this version of the test beginning with the August 2021 LSAT; the test will now include three scored sections (one LG, one RC and one LR) and two unscored sections (one unmarked section and one writing sample). The most significant difference between the LSAT I wrote in June and the current format is the inclusion of the unmarked section.

 

   However, the biggest difference is between the pre-pandemic in-person test and the current virtual format. The LSAT is now administered online through LSACS LawHub and is live remote-proctored by ProctorU. ProctorU is a service that provides live proctored testing, which means the test is overseen by an authorized person or proctor who ensures the identity of the test taker and the integrity of your test-taking environment. Therefore, before taking the LSAT, you will need to schedule a testing time with ProctorU. LSAC will typically send an email with the date and time that scheduling sign-up opens. With that said, I want you to consider some steps to ensure your virtual test runs as smooth as possible:

 

1. Check Your Equipment: Please do NOT wait till the last moment to test your computer’s compatibility with the ProctorU software. I have heard of horror stores of people needing to borrow laptops from friends or family the day of the test! This is so simple yet important to ensure there are no technical difficulties.

2. Familiarize Yourself With the Test Interface: This is extremely vital! Fortunately, the LSAT is conducted via LawHub, an interface that LSAC gives access to test takers. Unfortunately, however, the full version of Law Hub is not free, and costs ($100 USD) BUT you do get unlimited practice with the authentic LSAT interface as well as:

1-year access to more than 70 full Official LSAT PrepTests

2 full free Official LSAT PrepTests in the current LSAT format

2 full free Official three-section LSATs

Instant scoring feedback

You can access the free version of LawHub. However, you will only receive access to:

2 full free Official LSAT PrepTests

1 full free Official LSAT PrepTest in the current LSAT format

2 full free Official three-section LSATs

 

   The LSAT is a costly test, and I understand if finances are a concern, though out of everything, I believe practicing with the test day interface is an advantage though NOT a necessity to doing well.

 

3. Prepare Your Testing Space: I cannot stress this enough; this is perhaps the most crucial step to ensuring a smooth test day (and effective study regimen). I strongly recommend that at LEAST one month out from your test date, you complete all your practice tests (PTs) in the exact same spot that you will be writing the LSAT on your official test day. ADDITIONALLY, you should mimic test day conditions to the best of your ability. What do I mean by this? I, for example, wrote my LSAT on a desk in my parent’s bedroom; I wrote it here because of the enormous window that let in sunlight (gave me some vitamin D and happiness admit all the stress) and was the quietest room in my house. Once I knew this would be my test day spot, I took all my PTs from May to June on that same desk in my parent’s bedroom. To go even further, I treated each of those PTs as if it was the real deal: How?

  1. I would only put LSAC approved materials on my desk (Five blank sheets of scratch paper, a Valid ID, one highlighter, an eraser without the sleeve, even putting my beverage in a plastic container). Check out this link to learn more about items allowed in your testing space:https://www.lsac.org/lsat/taking-lsat/getting-ready-your-lsat-exam

  2. I went through a mock setup process (before each PT, I would show my surroundings and my materials to the “proctor”)

  3. I did NOT pause or take breaks during my PTs! As this will not be allowed on test day. (of course, stuff happens, and sometimes your family interrupts you during a PT, or you really have to use the washroom. We are human at the end of the day BUT do not make this a habit as it will hurt you in the future).

  4. Even before registration was available on ProctorU, I decided on a time frame that I wanted to write my test (I picked 1 PM-2 PM because that is when I am most alert and refreshed. I encourage you to select a time when you are most productive). Therefore, I wrote all my PTs during that time window to ensure I mimicked test day conditions as BEST as possible.

 

   At first glance, I understand how all these steps may sound “unnecessary” or “over the top.” Still, I promise you that each of these little tricks helped me to be less anxious on test day, overall becoming familiar and comfortable with the LSAT process!

 

   How is the LSAT Scored?

   On a typical LSAT, there are roughly twenty-three questions for the LG section, twenty-five questions for each LR section, and twenty-seven questions for the RC section. This makes up 100 questions in total. However, your LSAT is not a reflection of how many questions you answered correctly. Your score instead reflects how you performed against the rest of the pool of test-takers in the span of three years.

 

   The LSAT is scored on a scale of 120-180, the lowest being 120 and the highest being 180. So, for example, if we look at the chart listed below, a score of 161 would put you in the 84th percentile, meaning you did better than 84% of test-takers. Although some slight shifts in LSAT scores and percentile ranks between tests may exist, these remain marginal.

 

   Note: your LSAT score is calculated based on how many questions you get correct, but only for that specific test. Answering 60 questions correct on one test may produce a different score than answering 60 questions correctly on another test. Each test has its own conversion chart to help you calculate your score. Below is the chart from a 2010 test.

 

Score versus Percentile Rank

How Should I Study for the LSAT?

 

   There’s no specific answer to the way you should study for the LSAT. However, I can make some recommendations that may help you along the way! First, it is crucial to explore the three ways most people prepare for the LSAT :

  1. Enrolling in an LSAT class or course (this is the method that I chose)

  2. Self-studying

  3. Hiring a private tutor

 

   I. Enrolling in a Class or Course:

   Taking an LSAT class or course can be highly beneficial as you are learning from experience LSAT instructors. These instructors have typically seen thousands of test-takers and know what methods work and which don’t. Additionally, being in a classroom environment allows you to work off your peers and connect with other test-takers. Some of the negatives of these classes may be that some people do not learn well in a group setting, and you may not get the specific attention needed to succeed on the LSAT. Additionally, courses can be costly and time-consuming as you follow a class schedule for about three months. Despite some negatives, I choose this option because I am not a self-learner, and I do well in a classroom environment. I am happy with the decision I made and believe it was necessary for my PERSONAL success.

 

   LSAT Courses/Classes

  • Harvard Ready (the course I took)

  • Princeton Review

  • 7Sage (great for information and online forums as well)

  • Apollo LSAT Prep

  • Khan Academy (Free in partnership with LSAC)

 

   II. Self Studying:

   Self-Studying is another popular method of tackling the LSAT. To self-study, you would typically buy LSAT lesson books from various sources to learn and explore what strategies work for you. The benefits of self-studying are that it generally is cheaper (though LSAT materials are expensive), you can work at your own pace. Some cons to this method are that you may have to do lots of the initial learning steps on your own (figuring out what books or methods work for you), you may accidentally instil bad habits that are hard to fix later, you will also have none to ask questions too, particularly if you do not know anyone else who is writing).

 

   LSAT Books/Materials

  • The Powerscore LSAT Bible Trilogy

  • The LSAT Trainer by Mike Kim

  • Loophole by Ellen Cassidy (specific to LR)

 

   III. Private tutor:

   Seeking a private tutor will provide you with one-on-one LSAT prep; this is beneficial as they can create a study plan specific to you as a test taker. In addition, this will better help you improve your areas of need. A private tutor seems like an obvious choice; however, they are usually costly and unrealistic.

 

   None of these learning styles are superior to the next, and regardless of what method you choose, you must be honest with yourself. The LSAT (for most people) is not a test you should take without little or any preparation. I recommend you give yourself at least three months of committed study time. I say be honest with yourself, because some people may need more than three months. You know yourself and the way you learn the best. In my case, I knew having a learning disability and writing the LSAT would present itself with many challenges, and so I gave myself a little over six months to prepare. Bottom line: choose a study method and timeline that is conducive to the way you learn.

 

   General Takeaways for studying (In my view):

   I implemented some general tips while studying for my LSAT that I firmly believed helped me reach a proud score! Here they are:

 

  • DO NOT focus on timing in the very beginning; as I said earlier, this is a marathon that you are working towards, and you must walk before you jog and jog before you run. In the beginning, accuracy is far more important than timing. I promise you will get faster with practice!

  • DO NOT waste practice tests! PTs are limited, and you will run through them faster than you think. Thus, you should not be going through full PTs at the start of your studies. Instead, focus on doing untimed and timed individual sections to get your accuracy down. Save the PTs for closer to test day!

  • Create and stay committed to a study schedule. Haben and I both devised an attainable schedule for us to adhere to (sometimes it needed to be altered to accommodate for changes! that’s okay). Below is a snapshot of our study schedule from April 25th to June 1st. For reference, our test day was June 12th. As you can see, we aimed to do a mix of individual timed sections and full practices tests each week. In my experience, I found doing anything more than two PTs a week to be counterproductive and draining.

 

 

  • With this schedule, you will notice that we make it a point to say that YOU MUST review all of your PTs the same day you write them or the following day (my preference). The only way to improve is to understand your mistakes. One of the most popular methods for review is called the ‘blind review’. I did use this method for MOST of my tests, however, if I am being honest, not for all of them. This was because I found it very time-consuming. Though, I do recommend you engage in blind review or a simmilar method as it produces the best results. Check out this link on how to correctly blind review: https://7sage.com/the-blind-review-how-to-correctly-prep-for-lsat-part-1/\

  • Do not always check your answers immediately after you write a test or complete a section. This will get you equipped for the unbearable pain you will feel during the two weeks waiting for score release :)

  • DO NOT neglect the importance your mental wellbeing plays in writing a successful LSAT! For example, I am a highly anxious individual who suffers from Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Therefore I was honest with myself (very key) in knowing there was a high chance that my anxiety would get the best of me on test day. However, contrary to what I anticipated, I remained very calm on the day of my test. How? I mentally prepared as much as I studied. What do I mean by this?

 

  • First, it is important to understand that your score is not a representation of your character or capabilities as an individual, prospective law student or future lawyer. It is, in fact, JUST A NUMBER.

  • You must understand that your initial diagnostic is NOT at ALL going to be reflective of your test day score. DO NOT LET THIS DISCOURAGE YOU. I scored 23+ points higher in June (my LSAT test day) than I did during my initial diagnostic test. The best PT I ever wrote was also 27 points higher than my first ever score. YOU WILL IMPROVE!

  • I want you to engage in good mental health practices: Leading up to test day, I went for a walk the night before all of my PTs (and before my actual test), I woke up and went to bed at similar times, I routinely visualized myself writing the test, what it would feel like and be like on the day of (this relieved so much anxiety). Not a necessity, but I found mediation in the months before my test to be helpful to reduce stress, I also had a mantra that I would repeat to myself before I took all of my PTs “I am capable, I am made for this, I will succeed” {I encourage you to make your own:)}

  • You should practice positive self-talk: I worked on shifting my inner dialogue to be more encouraging and uplifting. Do not be too hard on yourself!

  • I want you to seek out perspectives and advice from law students, lawyers, or anyone you know who has written the LSAT. If you do not know anyone, I encourage you to reach out to people on LinkedIn, your school’s Alumni page, even reading this blog is a start! If I have learned one thing in this process, it is that people are more willing to help than you may believe.

  • Last, I am here to tell you there exists such thing as TOO MUCH STUDYING!! From my experiences, if you have a bad day or feel drained, then take the day off! I know you will feel guilty at the moment, but take it from me, trying to write the LSAT when you are thinking about everythign else but the test is next to impossible and NOT productive. Be kind your self!

 

   Logic Games Specific Advice:

   This was for me the most demanding section to get down; however, it became my best section towards the end of my studies. This is because it is the most learnable section of the LSAT. Therefore, my recommendations are simple for this section:

  • You must practice, even when you are staring at a game and it looks like a completely different language. You need to hash it out with yourself and figure out what you are missing. It is, unfortunately, the only way you will get better! But the good news is, you WILL get better!

  • Games are great to hash out with other test takers or friends you may know who are writing the LSAT, and it is nice to hear different perspectives!

 

   Logical Reasoning Specific Advice:

   This was, for me, one of my better sections and the one that I enjoyed the absolute most! My recommendations for this section:

  • Fundamentals are key in LR. If you do not understand the basic principles such as necessity and sufficiency, then LR will seem impossible.

  • Whenever I struggled with LR, I went back to doing basic drills to ingrain those principles! So, I encourage you to understand the foundations of formal logic before writing off LR as your ‘bad section.’

 

   Reading Comprehension Specific Advice:

   This was, for me, my absolute worst section on the LSAT and what stressed me out the most. My recommendations for this section:

 

End Notes:

   There is no perfect or right way to study for the LSAT; I hope not to give you the correct answers but to provide you with some insight into my process and information that I believe helped me get through this process. So if you are writing the LSAT shortly, I wish you luck and hope I can help you even in the slightest way!
