    S3E4: Reading Comp Organization Questions, Heavy Highlighting & Writing a Unique Admissions Essay

    S3E4: Reading Comp Organization Questions, Heavy Highlighting & Writing a Unique Admissions Essay

    Reading Comprehension passages will be about topics ranging from arts and humanities, economics, psychology, science and the law.  Each will have its own argument structure, and each structure supports and argument that builds from one paragraph to the next. So, knowing the structure of the argument will help you to not only identify the overall organization, but also to identify the role or purpose of each paragraph in the passage for role or purpose questions.

    Shana and Trudel also talk about what makes a unique essay, and how anybody can write one, even if they don't have a singular outstanding academic or professional achievement.

    S3E3: Inferences, Electric Studying & Why Cramming isn't Good Studying

    S3E3: Inferences, Electric Studying & Why Cramming isn't Good Studying

    In this episode, Shana and Trudel tackle inference questions in the Reading Comprehension section. In general, the goal of answering an inference question is to consider the correct answer as a new conclusion that stems from a claim or claims in the passage.  Treat the answer choice as a conclusion, and you’ll make your life much easier.   A conclusion is supported by and necessarily follows from the premises, which means that everything stated in the passage is potential premises that support the conclusion (inference) contained in the answer choice.  If it’s the right inference, then it will logically follow from a claim or claims in the passage itself. Shana & Trudel also bust myths about cramming before the LSAT, and why it's better to aim for consistent "electric" studying rather than aiming for the big cram.

    S3E2: Grandmom, Yale 1L Life, and Reading Comp Breadcrumbs

    S3E2: Grandmom, Yale 1L Life, and Reading Comp Breadcrumbs

    In this episode, Shana and guest host Trudel Pare bring you a very special episode in honor of Shana's grandmother, the Honorable Bess B. Lavine . Shana recounts her grandmother's legacy, a woman who broke through gender barriers, pushed for criminal justice reforms and mentored legal professionals including Shana's aunt, leading to the first mother-daughter judge teams in the country. (obituary at https://www.washingtonpost.com/obituaries/2022/10/05/bess-lavine-prince-georges-judge-dead/). 

    Shana and Trudel also discuss what Trudel's experience has been like as a Yale 1L under a 1L pass/fail, no-grade grading system. 

    Finally, the two dig into the next Reading Comprehension lesson, and discuss the different reading comprehension notetaking techniques that are available to readers with varying degrees of memory and recall abilities. Like Hansel and Gretel, you might want to start leaving breadcrumbs to mark your passage, too!

    S3E1: Intro to Reading Comprehension!

    S3E1: Intro to Reading Comprehension!

    In this season of LSAT Boss, Shana explores the daunting world of Reading Comprehension with a rotating series of special guests who have completed their LSAT Boss journey with her. In this episode, Shana breaks down the five Reading Comprehension fundamentals with María, a recent graduate who scored a 171 on the LSAT. María was initially frightened by reading comprehension, until a daring challenge by a counselor reminded her how capable she truly was, and she spoke up and defended herself.  Shana and María also discuss the journey María took before beginning LSAT BOSS, how she adjusted her approach to test taking by pushing off her test date and changing her behavior and mindset, and how she ultimately achieved a blowout 19-point improvement.

    S2E15: Resolve/Explain, Trudel Heads to Yale Law, and Color Matters!

    S2E15: Resolve/Explain, Trudel Heads to Yale Law, and Color Matters!

    In this final Logical Reasoning episode and final episode of Season 2, Shana and cohost Trudel tackle Resolve/Explain questions, and discuss whether what you wear when you study actually matters.

    Resolve/explain questions are like riddles with only five possible solutions. Answers will provide an explanation as to how two things that are coexisting or correlating can be explained. Both matters must be addressed and resolved by the resolution you come up with. So a solution must address both elements: A and B

    A correct answer will not just resolve an issue with element A.

    A correct answer will not just resolve an issue with element B.

    A correct answer will resolve the issues with both A and B.

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.
