Causal Reasoning Part II: Causality and Question Types
Wrapping up their comprehensive coverage of LSAT causality, Dave and Jon move from conceptual discussions of causation to an application-focused look at how causal reasoning is treated in the test’s various LR question types. Specifically, you’ll hear them address what to look for and how to best respond to causality in every context—from Weaken to Strengthen to Flaw and more—before touching on advanced cause and effect constructions, ensuring you’re ready for everything the LSAT can throw at you!
Causal Reasoning Part I: The Nature of Basic LSAT Causality
After several months of LSAT-Flex reviews and admissions cycle analysis, Jon and Dave are getting back to basics with a conceptual overview of causal reasoning. In this episode they examine precisely how LSAT causality operates, the central assumption that makes it so vulnerable, common points of confusion including correlations and conditionality, and the key distinctions between causation in premises and conclusions. If you’re looking for a quick LR performance boost you won’t want to miss this!

The 2022 US News Law School Rankings

In this episode, Jon and Dave offer their take on this year’s rankings, including the controversial metrics and weighting involved, the most prominent winners and losers as schools rise and fall, and—above all—exactly what these rankings mean to you as an applicant!
Why Is This Law School Admissions Cycle So Competitive?
The competitiveness of the 2021 law school admissions cycle is well-established, but a closer look at the numbers—both of applicants and LSAT scores—shows just how unprecedented this year truly is. Join Dave and Jon as they examine the current situation and explain everything from the astonishing high-score bubble the Flex has created to exactly what you should expect as a result!
The February 2021 LSAT-Flex Review
With the February 2021 LSAT-Flex finally behind us, Dave and Jon are checking in with all the details! In this episode they break down the February LSAT, reviewing its source tests and their appearances over the weekend, highlighting the most notable elements that featured each day, and finally offering a section-by-section scale matrix to help you determine the exact curve for your particular exam.
I have been listening to the podcast as supplemental material to the various studying/tutoring I’ve been doing and I find it very helpful. The way they break down specific content is very easy to understand and relatable. I find it helpful to hear things explained from different perspectives and have had a few ah-ha moments where something clicked.
A lot of the negative ratings come from people not liking the personal banter and long intro about drinks/songs (sometimes up to 10 minutes) but I don’t really care because that is what the skip ahead function is for and their content is totally worth it!
Helped me through the process
I found the pod helpful to understand the components/anatomy of the test as well as a helpful study tool and morale booster. I got a score I am happy with this, but thanks for your help.
Fun podcast on a serious subject!
The LSAT is hard but these guys have a way of talking about it that puts you at ease. Keep it up!
