Studying for the LSAT / Anyone else get a hold on account message?
« on: December 23, 2005, 03:40:09 PM »
I f@ing paid my hold yesterday (i was waiting on a fee waiver application for LSDAS) and then I just logged on to my email, got all excited because I had an email from the LSAC to read:

Your December 03, 2005 LSAT information cannot be released because of a
hold on your file or delay in score reporting.  Once the hold or delay
has been resolved, your LSAT information will be available in the LSAT
section of the MY DOCS folder in your Online Services account at
www.lsac.org.


What the hell?  No one is even in the office for 5 more days?   They already processed the payments as it's on my credit card online statement.


Please someone else who got this explain?

Five beers, two eggnogs deep -- and I didn't even get my scores yet.   Hope there is enough eggnog left for the party tonight.

Just got off the phone with representative from LSAC about my fee waiver request.  I was concerned because the request hasn't been processed so I have a hold on my account and wouldn't be able to recieve my scores.  I was informed that due to the holidays there was going to be a delay this time and scores wouldn't be out till the 30th.   I hope to g-d he is wrong.  Has anyone else spoken with someone from the lsac whom has said differently.

no I'm not, but some of you may find this article interesting in your spare time.

First you should read this:

http://reviews.cnet.com/4531-10921_7-6366092-1.html?tag=cnetfd.sd


Then after you've read this, continue on to this article where the fun really begins.  See I never realized that the way to obtain information in the future, and the AI of computers might be based on the logical reasoning we learn for the LSAT.  Perhaps all this studying will be useful further down the line.  And perhaps, due to all the privacy issues potentially raised by these programs, we can all be happilly and richly employed for a long, long time.

Doubtful that this could happen, well just why would Google get involved in the business?  They always do things better than they were done before (earth, Desktop Search, etc) and this is a logical extension, of their current technology.

In any case, hope some of you find this article as interesting as I did.  I also was just pumped to read an article discussing my beloved logical reasoning.

Best,

Studying for the LSAT / Forming Study Group for December 05 LSAT
« on: October 24, 2005, 11:53:38 AM »
Hi Everyone --

Just did a quick search to see if there are already any groups, and i didn't find one, so I figured I'd make a call to all the masses.   I'm forming this in hopes of doing the studying online, but if personalities are compatible, woldn't be adverse to forming one  that meets in person (in New York City region). 

ohh, and about me.  Currently practicing in 165-167 range, have never taken the test before, 2 years removed from college (Columbia), LGB, LRB, TESTMASTERS, the such.  Welcome all studiers, and we can work out the logistics of such a group once able to gauge the response.

Looking for this to be a beneficial group for all involved, and to be supportive.

Any questions feel free to email me at bigdhops@yahoo.com

Best Regards,
sjh

Studying for the LSAT / Advice for those starting the LSAT Study Grind
« on: October 05, 2005, 01:12:14 AM »
Admittedly, I've found the preperation for the lsat so far to be tedious, and I seem to be wasting hours I never thought I even possessed before searching boards similiar to this, tinkering with my fantasy football lineups, and all in all, staying awake fretting about the test.

I took my first practice LSAT blind two weeks ago and got a 152, thought I was prepared to take the October LSAT, had some personal issues, took a practice test on Thursday, Sept. 29th and got a 161, and then chickened out and rescheduled for December.

So what am I to do, when I find that it is neaqrly 2:00 in the morning and I find myself forced awake till 5:00 am looking at every innane comment made on some of these boards.

I guess simply, when the questions are kicking your ass, when you can't seem to devote more than 2 hours a day to studying because then your brain feels like mush and the work is conterproductive, and when you continue to do the questions but you don't feel as if you have complete and utter 100% concentration, how do you push through?

How do you find the will power to plow threw another 100 pages of practice, in which much of the reasoning is counter intiative?

And most importantly, how do you take this test knowing you have given it your all?
