Studying for the LSAT

December 04, 2011 | Captain Hannah He

This past Saturday I took the LSAT. Sometime in the future I'd like to perhaps attend law school and switch from Signal to the Army JAG Corps, so I've spent the last ten weeks or so on some serious studying. 

One of the things they tell you when you're studying for the logic games is that most people figure out logic games as part of everyday life. Nowhere is this more true than if you work in the Army. Just this past week, I was doing some practice problems, the ones such as "A bakery makes five different kinds of cupcakes each day. Vanilla are only made on Monday and Friday. Every cupcake on Tuesday has chocolate frosting." and then asks a question like, which list of cupcakes is correct for Monday.......or something like that.

Anyway, as I was trying to figure out why such complicated questions are in any way relevant, I got an email from my supervisor that went along these lines: "I need a schedule for 14-15DEC for this training. It's three iterations on each day, maximum of 15 personnel at each iteration. Attached are the names provided by each of the four companies. B Co can only attend on 14DEC, and A Co can only attend on 15 DEC, and these three people from HHC can only attend after 1300. Need to publish today."

Maybe the LSAT should be required for new LTs......

    Lt. He, as a law school applicant, I am pleased to learn that the critical thinking faculties that I have developed through LSAT study will merely be theoretical!
    Thank you for your insight... and good luck in law school!
