As we’ve mentioned before, here at LSAT Freedom, we get a lot of email. Students, potential students, former students, and even random visitors to our website have questions. They send us questions by email (at info@LSATFreedom.com or support@LSATFreedom.com), and we take the time to answer them. These questions and our answers are often informative and very helpful to others. So we post these questions and answers from time to time in a blog article titled “LSAT Freedom Inbox.”
In this post, we give you a peek at our email inbox. We reproduce three questions we receive by email and provide answers to those questions. In some instances, we have modified the questions and answers, in part, to appeal to our readers’ more general concerns on this blog. Some of these questions and answers will be short; others will be long. Either way, the information is helpful to YOU, our readers. Just to be clear: these are real questions from real readers.
LSAT Freedom Inbox – October 23, 2014
LSAT Freedom: We certainly can! When LSAT scores are released, many people often wonder whether they should retake the LSAT. If you didn’t hit your target score or don’t think the score you received reflects your potential, whether or not to retake the LSAT is a question worth considering. Like any other decision, whether to retake the LSAT has its positives and negatives. It’s not an easy decision, and it requires assessing several factors. Fortunately, in the past, we compiled two lists of the factors you should consider, and that can help you decide. Here are 4 reasons why you should retake the LSAT, and here are 5 reasons why you should NOT retake the LSAT. It’s always helpful to look at both sides of an issue. Hopefully, these lists will guide you towards the right choice!
Q: What should I be doing with LSAT reading comprehension? Should I try and memorize as much information as I can from the passage and then answer the questions?
LSAT Freedom: Great question, and one that often comes up with an often-forgotten section on the LSAT. On the LSAT Reading Comprehension section, you should not try and memorize the passage. In just a span of a few minutes, that is impossible to do. Rather, when reading, you should focus on underlining key information. This underlining creates markers or guideposts you can use later on to find relevant information when you answer the questions. Here is a quick explanation of how to approach LSAT Reading Comprehension passages. As far as what to underline, here is a list of the items of information you should make a note of when reading these passages.
Q: Hi, I registered for the February 2015 LSAT. How far in advance should I begin studying? I work part-time, and I am also in school.
LSAT Freedom: Daryl, you’re in luck. We recently threw up a quick video in which we answered that very question. In short, determine the number of hours needed, and then allocate those hours across your day-to-day schedule. Hope this helps!
