Any Bar members who read the April 15 News article concerning Maj.
Steve Berlin's becoming an attorney while in the service will be
amazed that he took something called the Law School Admission Test, the
acronym of which is, of course, LSAT. In my day--shortly after man
invented fire--the "A" part of that test stood for
"Aptitude," and one still had to convince any law schools to
which one applied, even if the test were passed, that he/she deserved a
place in Contract Law 101, etc.
Was the News story in error, or has the law school admission
process really been so simplified?
(Editor's Note: While we can't speak to the complexity of
the test, the Law School Admissions Council describes the LSAT on its
website as the Law School Admission Test.)
