The PowerScore 2018 LSAT Bibles: Changes and Updates

Posted by Dave Killoran on

Each year I make revisions and updates to the LSAT Bibles, and there are several different reasons for that. First, at least three new LSATs are released each year, and I like to make changes to some of the content to account for new directions taken by the test makers. Second, I talk with many different LSAT students and also teach various sessions throughout the year, and the feedback I receive helps me shape and improve parts of each book. And, finally, as I discussed last year, the books have changed so much over time that providing new versions each year helps students know they are getting the most up-to-date versions possible.

Because of this, one of the most common questions we receive is: what has changed, and do I need to get the newest editions? So that's what I'll be talking about in this post.

When Will December 2017 LSAT Scores Be Released? Our Prediction!

Posted by Jon Denning on

December 2017 LSAT takers have one burning question in mind: When exactly will my score be released?

Per LSAC, December 2017 LSAT scores are slated to be released on Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018. However, past LSAC score-release trends indicate that scores are almost always released earlier than the official date (except when weather conditions have interfered with the original test dates, as was the case with the February 2013 LSAT). So, even though you still have to wait to get your score, you probably won't have to wait until the score-release date designated by the test makers. 

So when will you have it?
