I've never even heard of a JSM.

There are a slew of LL.M and non-LL.M legal grad degrees now (M.A. in Law, M.S., some funky doctorates). Other than an LL.M in Taxation or Natural Resources I'm not sure that any of them are worth the tuition.
Its basically a PhD in law, they are out there

Just make sure that you will be happy with your career once you decide to change. Read this article. There are many attorneys that are unhappy with their positions. Just make sure that it is worth it!

It still amazes me how many people complain about the number of jobs that there are available out there or how unhappy they are at their current position! I read this article the other day and found it very interesting! Why not keep looking for something that you can be happy with both personally and financially. There are plenty of opportunities out there if you look!

Where to start with the LSAT?
Take a free diagnostic test and see how you do. You'll then know what to expect and how much work you'll need to put into your studying to do well. Make sure you take the test timed. Timing is practically everything.
Here's a free preptest to try: http://www.lsac.org/docs/default-source/jd-docs/sampleptjune.pdf

Is the LSAT the only factor in admissions
No, but it's one of the most important factors. Your past academic records like your GPA matter a lot too. Your personal achievements and successes may add to the picture but less so. You should realize that the LSAT is taken by all future law students so it makes comparing students and their academic intelligence easier for the admissions department. The idea is; performing well on the LSAT shows you're well suited for the study of law.

JSM tends to require an LLM already done to get in it

The JSM degree at Stanford is geared towards international attorneys looking to practice a specialized type of law in the U.S., according to Stanford's website (https://www.law.stanford.edu/degrees/advanced). If that is so, why does this US-grad JD have a JSM: http://www.avvo.com/attorneys/94903-ca-michael-marowitz-300049.html. Was a JSM much easier to obtain than LLM in 1981? Was his obtaining a JSM just so that he could have a T14 school on his CV?
