Writing Sample Questions

The LSAT writing sample questions, which it is speculated is never looked at by the law schools, is still a required part of the test. The writing sample question poses a situation where there are two equally weighted alternatives, and the goal is to make an argument about why one alternative should be chosen over the other. A good way to approach this section is to weigh the two options and then make a case for one over the other. (For example: While A provides such and such opportunity, B has the added bonus of such and such etc, therefore B is the better option). There is no right answer to this question: the options are presented to be equal.

  1. Alice Anderson is a senior at John Paul Jones University. She has been offered two positions as a result of her outstanding record in her major, Television and Radio Broadcasting. As her counselor, you are to write an argument favoring one of the two offers. Two considerations guide your decision:
    • Alice has a large student loan debt that she has to begin to repay immediately upon graduation.
    • Alice has as her career goal a position as a network news anchorperson.

    LSAT writing sample passage is as follows:

    WAND is the only television station serving a large area located some 250 miles north of the capital of the state. The station has offered Alice a job as a reporter whose principal assignments would be to cover the activities of local governments, politics, and business. In addition to her assigned stories, Alice would have the opportunity to independently prepare stories for possible broadcast. Because the station is small, has a very stable staff, and has limited growth prospects, Alice's chances for advancement are not good. WAND's owner is a former network executive who purchased the station in order to get away from the pressures of broadcasting in major markets. Alice would get only a modest salary at WAND, and she would have to supplement her income with outside work.

    KBSC is one of three television stations located in the state capital. The station has offered Alice a job as a production assistant in the news department. She would primarily do background research and check facts and sources for the producers and reporters. Production assistants who work hard are promoted to positions as special assignment reporters in about two years. There are many special assignment reported competing for assignments, most of which involve covering minor events such as political dinners, award ceremonies, and concerts and writing human-interest stories. Most special assignment reporters spend at least five years covering minor events before moving into a position as a general report-anchorperson. KBSC would pay Alice a salary in excess of the amount she would need to live comfortably in the city.
