So if we get rid of the LSAT, how will admissions work? Will it focus on where you went to college or how well you did? Will more weight be given to how well you can write about your "life experience"? Maybe they could have several essay questions that all law school applicants must answer. The fact is that law schools need a standard tool to gauge applicants, and this is what the LSAT aims to do. Sure, rich people can go take a class and possibly do better, but it is possible to self-study also.
