Saturdays tend to be a time for recovery from the hard week of studying, but for some of our SHSU students, this Saturday was one for the books! Every semester, for the past 9 years or so, the LEAP Center provides a free Mock LSAT for SHSU students who are considering law school and careers in the Law field.
LSAT stands for Law School Admissions Test and is similar to what hopeful graduate students take, the GRE. The exam produces a score based off of logical thinking, critical thinking, and reading-comprehension skills. The LSAT is scored from a 120-180. Most law schools need an average of a 151 and above to get in. The LSAT exam is not for the weak at heart, because it takes months of studying and personal responsibility to follow through with it.
The Mock LSAT is taken under conditions that mimic the situations under the actual LSAT exam.
And on this morning, more than 35 students hunkered down for the four-hour test.
The Mock LSAT is not just for our PreLaw students, but for everyone who wishes to try their hand at learning what they would need to improve their score and just get a better understanding of the exam.
