    S2E3: Admissions Love Story II: Ali's GPA; Claudia Gets an A

    S2E3: Admissions Love Story II: Ali's GPA; Claudia Gets an A

    I love this Admissions Love Story, because it's the gift that keeps on giving. Ali and Claudia first met at the beginning of their pre-law journey in 2018. Fast forward to September 2020, and Ali has generated a 21-point LSAT score improvement -- but equally amazing-- a 1.0 UGPA increase.  While he waits for his acceptance letters to roll in, we recorded an interview about his journey and caught up with Claudia Ryan, who, at the time, was preparing for her Criminal Law midterm exam.  

    A month later, we now bring you this episode with exciting news: Claudia  received the highest grade in the class!

    S2E2: Admissions Love Story I: Claudia Ryan + Baltimore Law

    S2E2: Admissions Love Story I: Claudia Ryan + Baltimore Law

    You may know her as the Season 1 cohost of the LSAT Boss podcast, but back in 2019, Claudia was a pre-law student working with Ginsburg Admissions to prepare her personal statement and ensure that she was applying to the schools that were the best fit for her.  Baltimore ended up accepting Claudia with a sizable scholarship, and it turns out to be an even more perfect fit than she had expected.  It's not too easy. It's not too hard. To Claudia, it's the Goldilocks of law schools. And she's here to tell you why.

    S2E1: Assumptions, 177 LSAT Scoring Strategies, and "Precision" Myths | Guest Cohost Trudel Pare

    S2E1: Assumptions, 177 LSAT Scoring Strategies, and "Precision" Myths | Guest Cohost Trudel Pare

    Season 2 of LSAT Boss picks up where we left off, only without Claudia Ryan who is on hiatus while she begins law school. Our new guest cohost is Trudel Pare, who will be helping us break down the rest of the logical reasoning lessons. Trudel, a Ginsburg Advanced Tutoring graduate, scored a 177 on the July LSAT and shares her wisdom on mastering the content, test strategies, and mental clarity techniques on her road to a near-perfect score. 

    This lesson is devoted to the assumption, and how to create the causal argument assumption—the assumption that connects the causal premises of an argument to its overall conclusion.

    Assumption Definition:  An unstated premise that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof.

    The Assumption Strategy:

    1. Identify the Conclusion

    2. Identify the Premises

    3. Prephrase the Causal Assumption (Every assumption can be prephrased by taking the conclusion and connecting it back to the premise. There are five ways you can make these connections in a prephrase of the assumption. We'll take a look.)

    4. Apply Process of Elimination Tests

    The 4-part assumption strategy contains two steps you already know how to do- identify the conclusion, and identify the premise. The next steps are explained in this lesson.

    Our complete LSAT Boss curriculum is now available on teachable. Find us on the web and begin your 33-video curriculum, with guided lessons and homework drills in official LSAT Preptests:  ginsburg-advanced-tutoring.teachable.com.

    S1E13: Principles, Practice Tests, and 50% More Study Time!

    S1E13: Principles, Practice Tests, and 50% More Study Time!

    Episode 13: Principles.

    Consider the principle like a moral in an Aesop’s Fable. For example, in the fable “The Tortoise and the Hare,” the lesson learned by the animals—the moral of the story—is that “Slow and steady wins the race.” That moral is the principle! Let’s not confuse it with the conclusion of the fable, which was simply that the tortoise won the race.

    To get more technical, a principle is like a law, and laws have elements. In other words, to support a conviction of first degree murder, the prosecution must establish that the individual acted 1) intentionally, 2) with malice, that his act was 3) premeditated, and that it 4) cause the killing of another. If the prosecution can’t prove all of those elements apply to the case against a person, then the principle would not justify the application of a murder conviction in this case. For example, if a woman is charged with killing her husband, but his body isn’t ever found, is that 4th element above actually proven? Or, if a man asks his wife to shoot him while he holds a book in front of his heart so that he can test the theory that a book can stop a bullet, is there evidence that she did so with malice?

    So, as we look at principles, we’ll be looking at all of the components of the principle and checking one component at a time to see if it applies to a particular scenario, or can be used to justify a conclusion, or can apply to a similar principle with a different fact pattern.

    Three Types of Principle Questions

    Select the Principle from the Answer Choices

    ● Which one of the following principles, if valid, helps to justify the author’s reasoning?

    ● Which one of the following principles most helps to justify the conclusion above?

    ● Which one of the following principles underlies the author’s argument?

    Select the Justification from the Answer Choices

    ● Which of the following, if true, most justifies the above application of the principle?

    Apply the Principle to Another Situation

    ● The principles stated by the author

Not your average LSAT Podcast

The LSAT is not for the faint at heart. It’s a whirlwind of mental gymnastics coupled with an emotional roller coaster ride. So anyone who can actually make this entertaining gets a gold star.

Shana is an expert in her field and has a true passion for the LSAT. Shana breaks down strategies and concepts into palatable, meaningful nuggets so you can actually retain the information.

This informative, educational podcast is an easy listen and will keep you engaged and ready to take this head on!

Review from a real life student

I am currently on my LSAT journey and love love love the LSAT Boss Podcast!! It’s so hard to find LSAT related podcast that don’t all sound the same and this podcast gives insight to what most people won’t tell you. It helps you stay motivated and positive while facing the exciting and stressful task of the LSAT and the law school journey, in general.

I also have been working with Shana for a couple months now and she is the real deal LSAT Boss — she breaks things down to where people can understand and genuinely cares about the success of her students.
