Episode 17 - The LSAT & You
Our guest this episode is Steve Schwartz.  With the goal of getting into law school and being a successful attorney Steve saw the LSAT as a major roadblock. I never thought I'd become a professional LSAT coach. Steve knew that before he could achieve his goal of being a lawyer he had to master the LAST. In fact, I saw the LSAT as a major roadblock standing in the way of my dream: to get into law school and become a successful attorney. So he set aside a few months and studied every LSAT book and every LSAT question he could find. He kept studying until eventually reaching the high 170s and scoring 175 on test day. Today he coaches other who are getting ready to take the LSAT and helps them to achieve their dreams as well.
