Very productive blog. But I totally disagree with 3 point, Lack of skill, as we know our skills improve through experience and it’s being underestimate to say that women have not that much experiences as men have.

Lack of the test practice is the main reason that prevents you from excelling the exam. Due to a lot of competition it is difficult to get good score in order to get admission in the best law university. I too need to pass LSAT and will prefer joining Best LSAT Prep Course.
