Episode 54: LSAT Test-Day Horror Stories, Tips for Attending LSAC Law School Forums and an Interview

Fire alarms, marching bands and mice … oh my! Listeners Ayung and Lauren share their LSAT test day horror stories. We discuss what to do when you encounter the unexpected in the test room, and how test-takers can sometimes turn a bad situation to their advantage. (7:30)

We stop talking about the LSAT and start talking about law TV! Nathan recommends two shows, one of which has shown him more courtroom trial footage in ten hours than law school did in three years. (16:45)

After misunderstanding the 5-minute warning policy on test day and panicking, Nabiel is worried his LSAT score will be lower than he hoped and plans to retake in June. We urge him to make some big changes in his study strategy for the coming months. (28:17)

Following a positive experience she had at a recent LSAC Law School Forum, Kaley writes in to encourage others to make the most of this resource. We agree, and follow up with advice on forum preparation, making a lasting impression, and even what you should wear to the event! (38:00)

Kaley, currently in a wait-list situation herself, compiled a list of past “Thinking LSAT” episodes where the wait-list issue was discussed. (45:00)

A double-major in electrical engineering and computer science, listener Ben is worried his GPA isn’t high enough to get him into a top-tier law school, even if he does great on the LSAT. We talk about GPA vs. LSAT score in the admissions process and whether the type of degree a person has earned impacts their law school application. (46:15)

Ben must abruptly exit Episode #54 when his son makes an adorable request for him to “come watch Octonauts”; Nathan laughs and laughs. (1:02:20)

Nathan interviews Kevin Hayslett, a full-time criminal defense lawyer/part-time radio personality lawyer. (1:03:20)
