Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we have special guest Dr. Shirag Shemmassian of Shemmassian Academic Consulting back with us to talk about how the LSAT's influence over the admission process has changed recently and why some schools are now accepting the GRE.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Do you still have to take the LSAT if you want to go to law school?
  • What if you've already taken the GRE?
  • What is considered a "good" LSAT score?
  • Balancing studying with working
  • Dealing with disappointing test results
  • How do LSAT scores correlate to success in law school?
  • Being open to different opportunities for jobs in the legal field
