LSAT Sections
« on: June 10, 2005, 02:34:22 PM »
Though I'll admit that all of the sections are important for law school and lawyering and the lsat measures something, (still trying to figure out what it measures) if you could select only one of the 3 that would be most relevant, for the sake of this argument - which section do you  feel would be most expedient as an attorney and while studying in law school?

I think LR is the best test of intelligence which is important for any mentally demanding work, but I agree that the RC is more like actual legal work (not that it is that much like it).

I actually asked a recent LS grad this q and her response was:  'undoubtedly, RC.'  After thinking about it moments after, it made sense.  LR would be secondary yet definitely significant.
