Yeah, lol if this guy thinks that the LSAT is the last time in the law he'd feel like the system was designed to favor those who can think really fast and efficiently under intense pressure.
You realize that when you're a lawyer, you bill your time out at like $400 per hour, as a first year. That means that you GD better think really fast, yet flawlessly, or your client is going to be awfully pissed off that it took you 10 hours to do something that most of your competitors can do in 6. People don't take kindly to thousands of dollars of their money being wasted because you don't like thinking under intense time pressure.
I totally agree. Nicely put. Although I think it is a bit asinine that there is a considerable difference in schools one can gain acceptance to on the basis of just a point or two score difference on the LSAT, it is a reasonable indicator of being able to think analytically under pressure. I hate the test as much as anyone else but it is a fairly reasonable hurdle that they throw at you. If one doesn't have the skills/drive to overcome it, then that individual shouldn't be a lawyer.
