Studying for the LSAT / my envelope from lsac came today
« on: June 24, 2004, 09:12:56 AM »
i had a descrepancy bewteen the info they had on file and the info i bubbled in before the test.  needless to say, just the sight of the envelope with the lsac seal on it had my blood pressure quickly on the rise.  i was just starting to be able to think about other things for more than a few minutes in row. now i'm anxious again.

if you had a choice, which do you think would be more effective: letters of recommendation from people that youve worked for in your professional life or former professors?

Studying for the LSAT / props to the 'studying for the lsat' board
« on: June 11, 2004, 06:54:02 AM »
this has been a new experience for me.  generally, if i am determined to achieve something and i work hard at it, i'll be successful.  unfortunately, that has not been the case with the lsat.  i have worked very hard at impoving my skills for this test, but it doesnt look like i will meet my goal of scoring in the 160's (yes, i know most of you are comfortably in the mid-high 160's).  this just hasnt been something that has come easily for me (or come at all, for that matter). but none the less i would like to thank the mystery man andrew for creating this board and this site.  i also need to thank everyone on the board for your posts.  i was studying alone for this test and it was nice to at least have some nameless, faceless friends to obsess with.  my confidence is not rattled.  i still beleive that i will be successful in law school, even if it is just a t4.  as for the test, i can say with certainty, i have worked my ass off, ive prepared the myself the best that i possibly can and i'm ready take it and move forward.
thanks again everyone for your insights thoughout this process.  i'm sure i'll see you all on the "accepted and deciding" soon  i wish you all the best of luck with the remainder of your studies this weekend.  oh, and on monday afternoon too.  give em hell.

Studying for the LSAT / thats it..i'm done!
« on: June 09, 2004, 06:56:13 PM »
i'm done.  words cannot express my frustration with this test.  my scores are getting worse on practice tests at this point.  LR has always been my strong point, but i'm even scoring horribly on that section.  i think i'm overthinking everything.  when i get the questions down to two answer choices, i've just lost all instinct for which is correct.  i just over anylize them and until there is nothing left.  so thats it.  i think pounding away at this is now dong more harm than good.

Studying for the LSAT / Preptest#38 Oct2002. How'd everyone do?
« on: June 05, 2004, 12:50:35 PM »
i just finished the oct2002 preptest38 and did well (beieve me, im as shocked as you are).  still not in the range of most people on thi board, but i jumped up 6 points from my average (thats a huge difference, between a154 and a 160).  did you all score well on this one?  i'm assuming this test must have been a bit easier.  either way, i'm happy about the score.  how did everyone else do on this one?

and what was the deal with #12 on section4. instead of a correct answer, there's a star that reads "item removed from scoring".  i wonder what the problem was? 

Studying for the LSAT / has anyone taken the lsat at brown
« on: June 04, 2004, 09:34:41 AM »
this is a pretty specific question, but i figured i'd give it a shot:
i'm taking the test next monday at sayles hall and i'm wondering if they administer in the main hall or in the seminar rooms off to the sides?

...speaking of non-traditional, are any of you art school graduates?

Studying for the LSAT / I should start seeing results when...
« on: April 26, 2004, 08:42:02 AM »
I've been at this for a few weeks now.  taking practice sections and progressing through an lsat prep book (barrons).  like all of us (i'm assuming),  i'm looking to pick up 8-10 points from my original score (it was abysmal).  so far, i have seen no improvement in my performance.  i'll pick up a few points one day and lose a few the next.  but overall, i'm at the same place as when i started.  when should it start to come together?  what have your experiences been with score improvement?  over what period of time?
