About me

Ariana Noshari

HELLO AND WELCOME TO MY BLOG. I AM SO GLAD YOU’RE HERE!

I am a Junior at The University of Texas at Austin, in the College of Liberal Arts, with a 4.0 GPA. I am a Government major with a minor in Philosophy of Law who is currently studying and preparing to take the LSAT in June 2020. I hope to attend Law School at The University of Texas (fingers crossed) and become an immigration lawyer. I also dream of one day becoming a White House or Foreign Correspondent. My academic interests include human rights advocacy, campaign logistics, and political analysis.

In my free time, I love to draw on my iPad and work on lettering. I impulsively purchased a Canon Rebel T6i in December of 2018 and have been learning (and am still learning) how to use it. I have no prior experience but love playing around with my camera! I enjoy capturing stories visually.

Fun fact: I LOVE American history! I listen to podcasts about American History in my free time. If you are reading this and have a history podcast you like to listen to, please let me know!!!

I have three Instagram accounts @arinoshari (personal), @arinoshari.photos (photography), and @roadto_170! Feel free to connect with me!

My top picks

Best Free LSAT Prep Resources

Here are some free resources that I have found to be most useful in preparing for the LSAT! When it comes to LSAT prep everything seems so expensive but I have found some exceptional tools that are free to use so you can focus on studying rather than money! After all, free is my favorite four letter word!
Good luck :))

Khan Academy Official LSAT Prep

Khan Academy allows you to set a target goal for your upcoming LSAT. It creates a schedule of 10 LSAT timed-practice test divided by lessons targeted at improving the areas you struggle most with.

I love this because not only have I seen direct improvement but because it shows me exactly how much progress I have made and how much I need to improve.

Podcast: Thinking LSAT

Thinking LSAT is by far my favorite LSAT and Law School Admissions Podcast out there. Ben Olsen and Nathan Fox started the podcast to become better LSAT teachers. There are over 195 episodes that talk about various aspects of the law school admissions process.
I learned about this podcast after reading Nathan Fox’s “Introducing the LSAT” and have been hooked since.

I love this podcast because I find it interesting and humorous at times. It has helped me get a better grasp of what the LSAT is and how to study and prepare successfully. This FREE podcast is absolutely amazing and should definitely be utilized.

LSAC Official Released Practice Tests

“The official LSAT preptest” published by the Law School Admission Council is an absolute essential for every aspiring law student. The LSAC sells the tests individually and in bundles of ten (inexpensive when purchased through Amazon) BUT the LSAC has released three timed-tests (#71, 73, and 74) in the new tablet format for practice, available for FREE on their website (linked to this post). Because these are actual previously administered tests, I highly suggest using them as a study tool.

This is an amazing tool to help familiarize yourself with the new format!!
