Studying for the LSAT / Odd question about legs when sitting for LSAT
« on: August 07, 2011, 04:59:06 PM »
Okay, so this may seem like a random question but in my case it's very important. I ALWAYS sit with my legs up criss cross apple sauce. I do it at work at my computer chair, I did it in every class I took as an undergrad; and I specifically make sure to wear leggins or pants at restaurants and preferebly get a booth so I can sit w/ my legs up. When I drive, one of my legs is up by the window.

As you can tell, this is a big part of my life.

Anyways, I have been studying for the LSAT at starbucks and libraries in which within 4 minutes of studying, I put my legs up. Is this allowed in the LSAT? I've been thinking of wearing a comfortable skirt on test day so I literally can't put my legs up but if I did - would I get in trouble?

This is such a silly question but I think it'll make a difference in my test anxiety.

Studying for the LSAT / Am I ready for Oct LSAT?
« on: July 23, 2011, 04:12:03 PM »
Hello, I am new to this, but I have been reading everyone's posts for a while.

I just graduated and am taking a Testmasters prep course. I am signed up for the Oct LSAT. My GPA is a 3.48, though from a good school, I know it is not competitive. I am relying on the LSAT to give me my boost. I am shooting for  168.

I received a 145 on the Testmasters diag. That was my first exposure to any LSAT questions, I worked 9 hours that day, and I did not eat. So I am confident I can really improve my score.

My issue here is that I have a hard time focusing and a hard time with logic. I am working 40+ hours a week at a law firm and going to Testmasters Mon/Thurs. I get a few hours Sat/Sun to do problems. Is the Oct test too soon for me? In addition, my brother is coming back from Deployment September 12-him, w/ my full-time job, etc., will really be an overload.

Should I just bank on December?  I would ideally like to do an early app for American Law School.

Any advice would help. I bought all the powerscore books, some previous LSAT administered tests, and am doing Testmasters. I am absolutely willing to give up any social life (which I have already for my job). What do you all think realistically?
