Well, Julie. Back in '07, when I attended law school for the first time, I wasn't too impressed with the student body. However, I was depressed back then, so perhaps my thinking was off balance. Because I attended a top twenty law school and many of my fellow students were from nationally renown universities, I give the other side the benefit of the doubt. Do you know what I mean?
In terms of the LSAT, it improved my critical thinking skills a lot. Specifically, logical reasoning. Now I can read and write more insightfully than before. I started studying for the test in '03. On the first prep test I took, I scored a 151 and hovered in the 150s for a while. Eventually, after grinding the logic down in study for a year or two, I hit the 160 mark and plateaued around 166 before I took the test (although I scored in the 170s at times). Then I got a 166 on the real thing.
Did I answer your question?
