Studying for the LSAT / The whining thread
« on: October 21, 2005, 09:59:36 PM »
Come on, you know you want to do it.  ;)

It's all a matter of perspective. You can be happy with a 155 if you were expecting a 150, or you can be miserable with a 165 if you were expecting a 170.

You can be happy with a 170 if you were expecting a 165, or you can be miserable if you were expecting a 170.

You can be happy with a 175 if you were expecting a 170, or you can be miserable.... wait a minute! what were you expecting? a 180??? you female dog!

Just kidding... you're welcome to whine here no matter how high your score.

BTW, right now I think my 160 SUCKS!

Studying for the LSAT / How many points would be worth it?
« on: October 17, 2005, 07:31:11 PM »
How many more points would be enough for you to say "it was worth it" after retaking the LSAT?

I am considering retaking in December if I don't take the score I'm expecting, but I stopped studying, so I have to start again and see if I can squeeze some more points out of the games.  :P

How many points would you need?

Studying for the LSAT / Fluency?
« on: October 06, 2005, 11:51:54 AM »
There was a space on the LSAT to mark whether you are fluent in English or not. I marked yes because I consider myself fluent, but the instructions were something like if you speak English the same of better than any other language you should mark yes, which is not my case.

I'm sure that my English is good enough for LS and I expect my score to be in the mid 160s, but it's DEFINITELY not as good as my Spanish. For one, I'm not nearly as articulate in English as I am in Spanish, and there's also the subtle things, like the way I have to do the reasoning for the games in Spanish... and I have to say the letters in Spanish when I'm bubbling them in, otherwise I mess up... and I can only do Math in my head in Spanish... things like that.

I'm asking because I'm considering retaking the test in December, depending on my score. I'm sure it's not terribly important, but we are not circumscribed to terribly important issues here.   ;)

Anybody knows why they want this info? Is it only for their statistics? Will somebody want me to take the TOEFL because of a No answer?

Personal Statement / Too tragic for a PS?
« on: October 04, 2005, 01:54:22 PM »
OK, here it goes.

I've been married twice and both my husbands committed suicide. The first one left me at 22 y/o with a toddler and a baby, the second one left me with those two boys plus a baby girl. I'm proud of the fact that I was able to overcome all this and raise three happy kids without getting bitter or wallowing in depression, but I don't want my PS to sound like a soap opera.

Any thoughts, please?

Studying for the LSAT / How was your test center?
« on: October 01, 2005, 04:17:55 PM »
I took it at Stetson University in Deland, FL, and it was GREAT!!!!

We had plenty of desk space, it wasn't too warm or too cold, you couldn't hear any noise from the outside, and the proctor even asked us if we wanted 10 or 15 min. for the break, and if we pref. he skipped over the instructions and make them short of read the whole thing.

Now I can't blame the center.   ;)

Good luck everybody!

Studying for the LSAT / I'm not one to ruffle feathers, but....
« on: September 17, 2005, 07:59:38 PM »
I'm not one to ruffle feathers, but.... I read one too many posts about "TM doesnt want you to start studying before you take the course"..

Of course they don't.

You take a diagnostic test when you start. If you already have at least an idea of how to attack the questions, the difference is not going to be as dramatic as if you go take the diag "out of the blues"...

I mean... I'm not attacking TM or anything. I know absolutely nothing about them, and I'm sure their classes do make a difference; they wouldn't be so popular if they didn't, but... come'on!     Isn't it obvious???
