I am in my final year of undergrad as a biochemistry major, and I aspire to be an IP attorney after taking a gap year to work in the field. Unfortunately, I haven't found anything detailing how to study for the LSAT as a STEM major because the majority of law school applicants majored in the humanities or social sciences. What I have found is that using the same approach towards the questions (especially in RC) just doesn't work for me. How can I adjust my learning to take the knowledge and skills I already have and apply them better?
Additionally, I originally planned to take the LSAT in Apr 2024 with Jun 2024 and Aug 2024 as available retakes. Obviously, the LSAT is changing in 2024 and will have 2 LR sections with no LG. I haven't learned any LG yet (I've completed LR and most of RC and will move to drilling soon), but which test would you suggest doing as a STEM major? Do STEM majors tend to do better with LG? Is it okay to limit myself to one retake by taking the April test? Is it too much of a time crunch for applications to take my first test in August? For reference, my diagnostic was a 157.
Please let me know of any insight you may have. I have been looking everywhere to find some guidance on these topics but am coming up empty. I would truly appreciate anything you can give.
