LSAT writing section

Postby ready4180 » Fri Nov 30, 2012 1:52 pm

Does anyone know if/where high-quality essays are posted? I'd like to read a few that are generally acknowledged as fulfilling the prompt at a high level before the test tomorrow. Thanks all!

Stress on the graded sections. Work through a couple of the writing sections in your free time just to see what they're like. Schools are trippin on scores, not the writing sample.

This one is presented in a humorous way, but in retrospect, it really nails what the purpose of the sample is for: http://www.velocitylsat.com/blog/golden-streams-really-dave

But I don't think high-quality essays are posted, in general. I've never found one, am constantly told they are not important and many law schools only give it a cursory glance to make sure it isn't complete nonsense. Many people never even review it from their LSAC profile after they get their results, and I've never seen anyone so proud of it that they shared it with the world.
