Thinking about applying for Law School?
As you learned while getting your Bachelor's degree, a dynamite standardized test score plays a role in your college acceptance. If you've done any research on the LSAT, it is incredibly difficult - and for good reason.
How difficult is the LSAT?
The following is an exerpt from professional law bloggers Joshua Craven & Evan Jones at LawSchooli
"The LSAT is objectively hard for two main reasons:
1. It requires you to use logic in way that is not intuitive to most people. The language of the questions is made deliberately subtle, confusing, and difficult to fully grasp. Also, you are simply given more things to keep track of than is easy to hold in level mind all at once. Add to that there are three different kinds of sections on the LSAT each containing a different type of unintuitive problems.
2. Time pressure: you are forced to tackle this really hard stuff very quickly. You have about a minute and a half on average to perform each individual question on the LSAT. Invariably you will find that you could be a lot more comfortable and a lot more sure about the answer if you had more time, but you don’t. Even where there are easy questions, you have to do those even faster, fast as a leopard, so that you have extra time to spend on the hardest LSAT questions where you you are really going to need it."
