Studying for the LSAT / Re: PowerScore vs Testmasters
« on: September 22, 2008, 04:47:37 PM »
I'm currently enrolled in Powerscore's Full Length LSAT Course. 

- Has helped me become familiar with the different question types
- Has helped improve my timing
- Has helped a lot with logic games set ups
- I like the timed practice test sections

- It is almost impossible to do all the homework and the extra work if you work full time which of course they recommend if you really want to improve your score
- The class is four hours long and goes until 10:30 which again is hard for people with jobs/families etc.
- Like all programs, the class can be too slow or too fast depending on your classmates

I'm not sure about testmasters but since its class seems to spread out over a longer period of time, it may be better for people who work and cannnot devote every minute to studying. 

Overall, I'm satisfied with the Powerscore course.

Non-Traditional Students / If I get a low LSAT score, should I even apply?

I'm 27 years old with the following history:

- BA in Accountancy 3.47
- Masters in Accountancy 3.67 (from top accounting program in the nation)
- CPA - licensed in CO and IL
- Worked for Big 4 Accounting firm
- Currently working in internal audit for a global real estate company

I'm planning to take the lsat in October and I'm currently scoring upper 150s.  I want to apply to CU - Boulder, Lewis and Clark, and University of Oregon in their environmental law program (which I will explain in my ps).  If I do end up scoring only in the 150's should i even apply or should I retake the test??
