Episode 38: Should You Select a Law School Based on Bar Exam Passage Rates or Tuition Costs?

In this week’s podcast, we answer the following LSAT questions and whether to select a law school based on bar exam passage rates:

  • Mike asks how to address “uncommon word usages” on the LSAT. For example, the word “obtain” appears frequently. What other words should LSAT test-takers look for?
  • Matt is taking the October LSAT. He slowed down his approach to answering Logical Reasoning questions, which has significantly improved his accuracy. When should he increase his speed to answer more questions while still maintaining accuracy?
  • Nathan’s student was admitted to Golden Gate University School of Law (46% bar passage rate) and University of La Verne College of Law (67% bar passage rate). Should he select a law school based on bar exam passage rates or the cost of tuition?
  • Bram just started studying for the LSAT. He asks about a strategy for answering different sections, recommendations for a LSAT class in Atlanta, and whether he should break Logic Games questions into “sub-games” or “worlds.”

  1. Thanks for another great episode guys! I really appreciate that you guys are talking about the cost of law school. This is a big concern of mine. Would it be possible to have a guest on the show that has expertise in the financial aspect of law school. I’d love to know more about need-based vs merit-based scholarships.
