What No One Tells You About Law School

There are many things you learn about the LSAT and law school as you prepare for the LSAT and begin undergoing the law school admissions process.  However, there are some things you don’t discover or are not aware of until you are deep into either process.  Once confronted with these discoveries, the process becomes more difficult, and you begin to question yourself and whether the law is the right choice for your career.

In this video, LSAT Freedom co-founder Rob Tauler addresses and explains some of these items and how to overcome them.

What No One Tells You About Law School

Beware of LSAT and law school anxiety . . .

As Tauler discusses above, anxiety regarding both the LSAT and law school can be daunting.  In addition, anxiety in your first legal job will also creep up and wreak havoc on the unwary.  One key to overcoming anxiety is placing yourself on the right path for LSAT preparation (like a study schedule) and then following a similar discipline once you get into law school.  Doing the right things now will help you avoid problems down the road.

Increase In High LSAT Scorers Means More Emphasis On Quality LSAT Preparation

Jordan Weissman at Slate.com recently reported that the number of high LSAT scorers (those with LSAT scores of 170 or higher) increased in 2014 according to law school  applicant data obtain from the Law School Admission Council.  While this pattern reversal is promising, it has a significant impact on current LSAT test takers and aspiring law students, particularly with regard to LSAT preparation.

High LSAT Scorers – The Pattern Reverses

A couple of years ago, the number of law school applicants began dropping.  However, a more troubling pattern was that the number of elite applicants (those with LSAT scores of 170 or more) also was dropping.  They had apparently realized getting a legal job might be difficult and so probably took their talents elsewhere.

In 2014, however, that trend appears to be reversing.  The number of law school applicants with LSAT scores from 170-174 increased by 7.5%, and the number of law school applicants with LSAT scores from 175-180 increased by 7.6%.

What This Means For The LSAT Test Taker – Two Things

If you’re reading this and planning on taking the LSAT and going to law school, this new data means two things.

First, it’s a good time to go to law school.  Given that the number of applicants has dropped, there is less competition, and you will have a better chance of being admitted to the school of your choice.  The recent increase in high LSAT scorers demonstrates this reality.  Whether this data means the return of the high LSAT scorers who left or an upward movement in the scoring ranks by previously-mediocre LSAT test takers, there appears to be plenty of room for aspiring law school students.

Second, and perhaps most important, an increase in high LSAT scorers could signify an increase in competition in the near future.  That indicates you should take your LSAT preparation seriously.  You should never assume you cannot study for this exam, or that what it tests isn’t relevant for practicing law.  Both assumptions are incorrect.  The LSAT tests specific logical principles and reasoning that are highly prevalent in the legal field.  In addition, you CAN study for the LSAT: first, by learning and understanding these principles, and, second, by practicing under timed conditions as much as possible.  An LSAT prep course that emphasizes this method of instruction is your best bet for getting a high LSAT score.

Can I Go to Law School While Working Full Time?

If you are either a non-traditional student or someone who needs income, you have probably wondered at some point “Can I go to law school while working full time?”  Despite the challenges many of us face in life, we still dream of success.  For some of us, that success involves going to law school and becoming a lawyer.  But working full time can present many challenges for both studying for the LSAT and then going to law school.  Can it be done?  Can the two co-exist?  Can you physically do it?

In this video, LSAT Freedom co-founder Rob Fojo explains that going to law school while working full time is certainly possible.

Can I Go to Law School While Working Full Time?

Going to law school while working full time is possible . . .

To do so, however, you must set up a schedule and stick to it.  Not just an LSAT study schedule, but an overall daily schedule.  It is critical that that schedule be followed and followed religiously.  Consistency and discipline are the key ingredients for any path towards success.  Given the challenging nature of the LSAT and the array of challenges law school presents, defining a specific schedule and following it to a fault are critically important if you intend to go to law school while working full time.
