Studying for the LSAT / Those who had LG in Section 1
« on: February 10, 2007, 09:25:39 PM »
Do you remember how many questions Section 3 had? see underlined section below
Here is the three scenarios for the three formats:

LR(26),RC(27),LR (25), LR(26),LG(22)

LG(23), RC(27), LR(26or25?), LR(26), LG(22)

LR(25), RC(27), LR(26), LR(26), LG(22)

Studying for the LSAT / EPERIMENTAL: Section 3- here is why:
« on: February 10, 2007, 03:44:13 PM »

Looks like there are three versions:

version 1:  LR(25Q), RC(27), LR(25), LG(22), LR(25)
Version 2:  LR(26), RC(27), LR(25),LG (22), LR(25)
Version 3:  LG (23), RC (27), LR(26), LG(22) LR(25)

I had version 2 and my experimental would be section 3 based on what others have provided and here is why
 For those who had LG in section 1, somebody said there were 23 questions on the first LG section. If that is the case, then they should have had the LR that had 26 questions in section three to add up to 100 questions total (can someone verify that)- My LR26 was in section 1. so that makes MY section 3 the experimental . also, the first question on section 3 was about Aristotle's book "The Clouds" or something. can someone verify please...

Like many of you on this board I have not written my PS yet.   
 I kind of want to write about the past few years and my college experience and my life in general but I'm not sure if it'd be a good idea, I'll let you guys read a very brief story and let me know what you think
...I came to the US in 1995, started JC in 96, wanted to go to med school, wasn't going full time because of work and also because I wanted to keep my grades up. (little did I know what a stupid mistake that was) a couple years later my mom and my younger sister moved here. i finally transferred to a 4 year university in 2000 and changed my major. by this time, we both had a full time job and I was commuting to school three times a week. things weren't going smoothly, so I took a semester off to start a business which required little effort, thinking that I'd be able to go to school while maintaining a decent sourse of income. I was wrong! it didn't work out and I just said to myself @#!* it... so I moved out, got an apartment next to school, took out a loan and used my credit cards to pay for other expenses. I finally graduated in 2003 with a 3.68. my gpa from CC is much lower, around 3.1 or 3.2. (took a lot of science courses)....I have been working full time since then and waiting for my LSAT score which I think could be anywhere from 155-162.
do you guys think i could write my PS based on the terrible decissions I have made in school and tell them what I've learned from those decisions and tell them how pathetic I was not to go full time and how I dropped some classes just before the finals because i wasn't getting an A?? I feel like a loser now that i look back! in high school i was a top student with so much potential ...but now i just keep wondering what went wrong.

I didn't have time to do the science passage ( i think it was the 3rd one) and had to guess on all 6 questions. I picked C,C,E,E,E,E. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if I've got any of them right.
thanks

Studying for the LSAT / READING COMP
« on: October 02, 2004, 05:45:05 PM »
what do you guys think about the RC section? I have a feeling I did better than most of my practice tests even though I did only three of the passages. I had RC, LG, LR, LG,LR. I skipped the science passage,about neurons or something, I didn't even read it and just guessed on all the questions. does anyone know if there was a C or E for any of the questions on that passage? I think i did CCEEEE or something...also I had games on sections 2 with 22 questions. I think the real games section was ok. so far I'm pretty sure I got them all. first i was struggling with the dogs game, because i didn't do the set up, then I diagrammed all the possibilities,but kind of rushed through it.

Law School Admissions / question about the LSAT/test center
« on: September 10, 2004, 03:17:23 PM »

I know LSAC is in charge of administering the LSAT, but do they hire an independent company that administers the test at every test center or they just hire a bunch of supervisors for a day from the college or high school where the test is going to be?does anyone know? I know there were issues with timing at a few test centers, how can i find out if there have been any problems with a specific test center in the past?

Studying for the LSAT / NEED HELP with Reading Comp! tell me about EYE-Q
« on: August 03, 2004, 04:20:44 PM »
I took a practice test yesterday and got 9 out of 27 on RC!! my overall score was 150 though. I take two-three tests/week and my score has been mostly in the 152-157 range. RC is killing me! I'm good at games,and still working on LR. I'm hoping to break 160 in the next two weeks. I'm not a fast reader adn have problem retaining information. from what I've been reading,some of you are doing better with EYE-Q. could someone tell me where I can download it/buy it from? I read someone was selling copies on CD....
thanks

Studying for the LSAT / I think I should quit my job too
« on: July 22, 2004, 02:07:19 PM »
Im thinking about quiting my job to study for the lsat. until 10 days ago my highest score was 149! since then I've taken about 4 more preptests and scored 156-157-152-154. and I'm about to take another one today. I really need a 165+ by October, so I thought I'd quit my part time job and study 10 hours a day for two months. I  work about 2.5-3 days/week (Mon, Wed, Fri) but with all the follow ups, faxes, phone calls the next day,it's almost like a full time job- having to deal with something everyday (didn't get the fax, have a question on something etc...). I'm also taking TM early summer on TUE and SAT and have about $3k to pay for my expenses and credit card payments til OCT. so what do you think I should do?

Studying for the LSAT / Need advice..... please help!!
« on: July 06, 2004, 08:23:31 PM »
I'm currently enrolled at TM early summer. so far, I've scored a 148 on my first diag and 149 today (Dec 1992).  the thing is I took testmasters last year with Robin Singh, and my highest score was a 149! I had a full time job and I don't think I studied as much as I was supposed to. but this year, I'm planning on taking 3 tests each week til Oct. that's about 40 tests i think.
I think taking the class over again helps me understand the details better. but for some reason I can't apply their methods on the actual test which really frustrates me. I know timing is a big problem for most people, but other than that, can someone tell me how I can go up a few points at least for now? I'm shooting for mid to high 160s. is that realistically possible given my 149 or is it just wishful thinking? the only thing i'm thinking about right now is the Oct LSAT and I'm willing to put all my time into it
also I'm not doing all the TM homework. would i be better off just taking the real tests and not bother with the homework or should i consider doing both?
