You have SATs, SAT IIs, APs, various state acheivement tests... and then nothing for 4 years in college. Hell, college might even diminish your skills by encouraging broad and critical thinking versus the desired "which bubble is best" approach that is more desireable for any standardized test.
Could pairing the SAT and LSAT (within a year of each other) be an intelligent course?
The critical thinking helps you with the LSAT. It certainly doesn't hinder it.
