    Good Day,
    I have a question, about studying for the LSAT.
    My step-son who has a four-year degree in Poli Sci from Uvic, has announced that he is reducing his 32 hours-a-week at his part-time grocery job, to 8hours a week, in order to concentrate on studying, for the LSAT, and going back to university for the Fall semester and taking only one course.

    He is planning on writing the Dec. Test, and, if his mark is not high enough, doing it again in Feb.

    Because he is cutting his income down by so much, my husband has decided to not charge him any room and board anymore. However, my step-son still maintains his social schedule, including having his girlfriend over, and going to parties,etc… and driving his Corvette all around town.

    My Daughter, on the other hand, wrote her SAT while in Gr.12, and went on to obtain her R.N. degree with distinction.

    I do not see why my step-son “needs” this much time, to “study” rather than “prepare” for this test!
    He spends an inordinate amount of time online, looking up everything under the sun, but does not seem to spend any time, doing any hard-core prep, including practice tests, of which he has written two, borrowed from friends, in two years.

    Also, for someone who wants to be a Lawyer, he has not spent one minute inside a Courtroom, and when I offered to set him up, as a Summer Intern in the Crown counsel’s Office, he refused to make the call. I also offered to set him up in a meeting with a prominent federal Prosecutor, numerous times, and now, he suddenly wants me to make the call for him!

    He is 23 years old, and I told him to dial the number himself.

    I feel we are being taken for a ride.

    Any suggestions?

    Leaving your personal issues with him, your comment makes a very important. There is a difference between studying for the LSAT and preparing for the LSAT – AKA LSAT Prep.

    Since the LSAT does not the acquisition of information one should not think in terms of “studying for the LSAT”. LSAT preparation is much more like training for an athletic event. You must prep yourself to do better than others. The LSAT score is a reflection of how you perform relative to others. Therefore, (in addition to other things) it is important to do lots of practice testing.

    In order to help him to get started you might check out our series of LSAT blog posts at:

    On an unrelated matter, what year is the Corvette?
