Episode 65: NSFW

…JK. Episode 65 is no less safe for work than any other episode of Thinking LSAT. We do appreciate hearing about all of you that seem to be listening to this podcast at the office instead of, say, writing invoices or reading memos or playing Pokemon Go.

We begin this episode by sharing a news item that features an uncharacteristically generous new refund policy from the LSAC. The wording of said policy is, however, very characteristically convoluted. Check out the fine print here while we admire the LSAC’s commitment to obscurity. (4:50)


Brian, a listener who recently earned a very impressive 171 on the LSAT, vows to never set eyes upon the test again. We hear you, Brian. He asks us to speculate on his chances of admittance to a top law school with his awesome 171 and a 2.9 GPA. Nathan refuses to play fortune teller and instead directs all such queries to the LSAT/GPA Calculator. Try this tool for yourself to see the chances of getting into the law school of your dreams. (10:55)


A lengthy email from Rachel covers a plethora of LSAT and law school related questions and we cover as much ground as we can in response. Included in her letter are queries about studying old LSATs, using a free app to prepare, whether or not she should study in a distracting environment, and if her understanding of sufficient vs. necessary conditions is correct; unfortunately, Rachel, it isn’t. We set her straight on these conditions and offer free resources to help even more, including Nathan’s blog posts on sufficient and necessary. (23:48)
