LSAT Prep Podcast by Dave Hall

So, this is our podcast. We intend it to be a wide-ranging conversation of things LSAT preparation related, and of law-school-admission, logic, and kicking ass.

(You can listen here, or by searching iTunes for "LSAT Kung Fu")

Eventually, we’ll talk about doing well on the LSAT, learning some principles of strong, coherent thought, writing a great personal statement, getting into law school, but maybe most importantly, learning to think like a Kung Fu logician. Along the way, we’ll dip our toes into the dangerous waters of politics, religion, and really scary stuff like the plot of Glee. At some point, we figure we’ll irritate, annoy, and vex just about all of our listeners. And that’s sort of the point.

We want this space to be useful, and to be useful, we believe that it’s got to be interesting. And interesting is almost never the same thing as safe. So, because providing you with the absolute most helpful, engaging, interesting, useful information is our purpose, we are pretty much sure that at some point, we’ll piss you off.

And that’s OK. It’s OK to be angry, and it’s incredibly foolish and makes us laugh deep hearty chuckles whenever we hear somebody say that to do logic, you have to be unemotional.

Utter nonsense. Logic is the most human endeavor - it’s the thing, above everything else, that separates us from the monkeys and the cows and the pandas. Logic is human, and like every human activity, it can be ruined and it can also be enhanced by emotion.

Emotion has a place in logic just as it has a place in every other human undertaking. We get angry, and we love and we mourn and we also do logic, all the time, sometimes all of those at the same time.

Yeah, your emotional frame of mind can color your thinking and thereby ruin it, but it can also embolden you, strengthen you, give you resolve, give you reasons, make you work.  And you’re going to need to work if you’re going to succeed.

I know, because I’ve been there. I’ve worked like crazy to earn multiple perfect scores on the LSAT and to accumulate the highest average LSAT score in the world. I know what it takes, and I can show you how.

So welcome to Velocity Test prep (find us at www.VelocityLsat.com).

We want you to join the conversation - you can request topics for future podcasts - absolutely anything you want to talk about, we’ll consider putting on air - ask questions about the LSAT, find advice for preparing for the test, more advice for getting into law school, you can talk about particular test questions and get answers from me and from your law-school-applying peers, you can leave us nasty comments or nice ones, you can vent your spleen and disagree and cheer us on and tell us what we’re doing wrong and what we should do more of and what we should leave out; you can, in short, join the conversation in The Forum at VelocityLSAT.com (access the forum at www.VelocityLsat.com/Forum), where you’ll find us any time you need us.

So, now we’ve been properly introduced, and for right now, that’s enough. We look forward to invading your ears every week for another installment of LSAT Kung Fu, and we’d like you to meet us here next week, when we intend to discuss language cues in Logical Reasoning.

Until then, check us out online, get ready to do Kung Fu, and don’t be scared - you just get in the ring and you start kicking ass.
