When I began my journey teaching English in Asia this past May, I also began my journey as a law school applicant. If you’re not from the United States, you are confused right now. You may be thinking Doesn’t she already have a university degree? Yes, I do! But in the US, if you want to be a lawyer, you need a 4-year bachelor’s degree (does not matter the subject), a 3-year law school degree, and a passing score on something called the bar exam.
The application process to get into law school is grueling and difficult. One of the most important pieces of the application is your score on something called the LSAT. The LSAT measures your ability to think quickly and logically. It consists of six sections, takes about four hours, and is really, really hard.
