Premodern LSAT

Postby nStiver » Mon Feb 08, 2010 3:07 am

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know what the LSAT was like before "the modern era", (before 1991)? I hear that the test was substantially different before '91. I always feel sorry for the poor saps that had to take the first modern LSAT because there must have been absolutely no way to prepare for it. I wonder, was it easier, harder? Were there different section types? Any old folks around to tell us?

That might help a little bit.


I lol-ed at the Artificial Language section in the first link. It would have at least provided a good laugh during the exam.

This stuff is absolutely hilarious... :lol: :lol:

"the LSAT has been in its current incarnation since 1991, but before this it looked like some fever dream of SAT questions on acid combined with 1950s political incorrectness. Open your mouth and taste the rainbow:"

I was amazed by some of the question types. The artificial language definitely looks the most interesting.
