LSAT Podcast Episode 30: Are Logic Games Disappearing from the LSAT?

Oct 9th, 2019

Episode 30 brings breaking news about the future of the LSAT's most notorious feature, Logic Games! Specifically, Dave and Jon decrypt a just-published press release co-signed by LSAC that raises speculation (to put it mildly) that within the next four years the test will no longer contain a Logic Games section. They cover possible interpretations of the article's wording, potential confirmation of the change from an inside source, and content that could theoretically replace Games if they are in fact removed.
