About Christine Schrader

Christine Schrader is one of Kaplan's highest student-rated LSAT experts, as well as an overzealous fan of Jurassic Park, professional tennis, caffeinated products, and cheese. She is embarrassingly fond of the LSAT (best standardized test ever!), and very good at Trivial Pursuit, '90s edition; science is still out on whether the two of these are related. She is happy to field any questions you might have about test day, law school, pop culture references, or Beatles lyrics.
