Do I need to read the entire BIBLE?

Postby abhanto » Mon Jun 01, 2015 8:22 pm

Logic games, logical reasoning, reading comprehension. As you guys know the books are quite... large. Is every page important? Do I need to go through the entire thing?

Thanks.

HA! I read every single except for the "rare games" section because I ran out of time (didn't study nearly long enough). Those pages aren't necessary- they are rare games for a reason, RIGHT?

Spoken to myself before Feb 2014 administration.

Sigh. Take this for what you will.

If you think that 500 pages of extra-large print text with huge margins and a blank space for diagramming on every other page is a lot of reading, good luck in law school.

Ya. Ripping through 100+ pages of an lsat guide in one sitting is cake.

I think it's important to add to this since many people when they're first considering law school and decide to take the LSAT don't fully understand what 'a day in the life of a law student' or day in the life of a litigator working for a law firm entails.

While in law school the reading assignments you need to do to be prepared for and keep up with classes ranges from ~50 to 200 pages of dense cryptic stuff PER DAY of classes that you need to read in order to be prepared for each day of classes in a full time law school program. The volume of reading you have to do day to day just to be prepared for what's going to be discussed in classes in order to keep up is insanely intense. After law school, if you go into big law and/or get a litigation related job, count on a workload of having to read well over 100 pages of stuff and having to write a lot of stuff every work day.

Law school and working as a lawyer is nothing like how it's portrayed in TV shows like Suits. Depending on what type of law you end up practicing after graduating law school, the majority of lawyer work consists of reading and analyzing mountains of paperwork and writing a lot of stuff every work day.

The really really old TV series called The Paper Chase is one of the most accurate fictional portrayals of what being a law student and lawyer is really like IRL. The book 1L by Scott Turow is a great read for people considering going to law school in order to get a good idea of what going to law school is really like.
