Law Schools Applicants Lowest in 10 Years

If you are applying for law school this year, you might want to start celebrating because you will have less competition than any other applicants have had for the past 10 years. The Law School Admission Test recently reported that it administered fewer tests this year – only 84 percent as many as it did last year. The number of tests taken has failed by 25 percent in the past two years.

This decline in the number of people who are taking the LSAT could be a reaction to the view that the legal market in the USA is in pretty bad shape. This means that the 45,000 law students who are expected to graduate this year will have a hard time finding a job, which might be causing new applicants to rethink their decisions to pursue a law career.

Tips for LSAT Prep

law schoolThe LSAT, or Law School Admission Test, is a test that anyone wanting to go to law school must take for admittance. The LSAT is a standardized test that typically takes a half-day to complete and is only given four times per year. There are five sections of multiple-choice questions on the test, each taking 35 minutes to complete. The multiple-choice questions of the LSAT fall into one of three categories: reading comprehension, analytical reasoning and logical reasoning. Being able to successfully answer these types of questions helps measure your perceived level of success in law school. One of those sections is actually not scored, and that section is typically used to introduce possible new test questions.

There is also an essay, or writing sample, portion of the test that takes 35 minutes. Although the writing section of the test is not counted towards an overall score, it is sent to all of the schools that students are applying to for admission. Read the rest of this entry »

justice scalePersonally, if I ever decided to become a lawyer, I would want to go to Harvard Law School. Why, you might ask?

Because Elle Woods from “Legally Blonde” went there, duh.
