LSAC to change testing policies in ADA suit settlement

Among other changes, those provided extra time on the LSAT will no longer have their scores flagged when submitted to law schools. At the time of this writing, I believe it still has to be formally approved by a federal judge, but you can read more about it here:

Law School Admission Council (LSAC.org) Overviews

I created a few videos on the Law School Admission Council (LSAC.org) process. The first one details how it all works, and the second one an actual navigation of the website. Each video is brief (3 minutes) but should really help make the whole process applying to law schools more transparent.
