Studying for the LSAT / Score release rumors/information

I wanted to start one thread for all the score release rumors/information everyone has been posting and/or hearing in the past several minutes.

Studying for the LSAT / Pacing yourself/getting burnt out
« on: July 23, 2007, 07:41:39 AM »
For all of you who have taken the LSAT, and/or studying for it now, how are you pacing yourself in order to avoid getting burn out? For example, instead of doing all of my 40+ hours a week of studying and questions for my prep class in one sitting (one day or so), I try to study the methods, take a break, do 10 problems at a time, take a break, and then review any missed questions throughout a three-to-four-day period. I find that when I sit down and do more than a couple hours of questions at a time, I just start to try to get done with them toward the end, and make stupid mistakes without analyzing the problem and the lessons behind it. I gradually want to work up my stamina for test day, but has anyone else burnt themselves out with certain ways of studying or prevented themselves from being burnt out with certain study habits? Just looking for some best practices and lessons learned...

Studying for the LSAT / Testmasters in Columbus, OH

Anyone taking Testmasters in Columbus, Ohio, for the Sept. 29 LSAT? Anyone in Columbus, Ohio, taking the LSAT in Sept. and want to study?

I see a lot of people coming up with some, uh, "unique" ideas for their PS, but has anyone just kept it simple and found that successful? For example, I was thinking of just writing about how I barely scraped by in high school and didn't live up to my potential (3.8 and honors is what I mean), was not accepted to some schools for UG I thought I would get into, and as the smoke cleared after my disappointment, it finally sunk in and I realized what I was doing wrong and where my thinking was flawed, worked extremely hard in college, and have a lot of successes, awards, and work experience to show for it. Is that just too simple? I worked almost full time straight through college, and have a lot on my resume that I think I could talk about, and wouldn't that give me a chance to reflect on my personal thinking, work ethic, and talk a bit about myself--while working in a few good successes--without coming up with some crazy story or fuzzy anecdote about my spiritual trip to wherever or visiting my dad in prison with his lawyer or something? Has anyone just taken this simple HS-to-college-thinking-work-ethic-improvement-no-one-owes-you-anything-you-have-to-work-for-it-type PS that emphasizes your past three-to-four years of effort?

I already have two solid LOR from professors and instructors who know my work well, but what about LOR from university officials? When I was editor of the university's newspaper, I worked closely with top university officials for articles and editorials--including the president. Anyone have any opinions about LOR from university presidents, vice presidents or top university officials? They can attest to my work, and the president even quoted me in his/her State of the University address. Did anyone else use a university official and find that is helped/hurt?

Is anyone studying in Columbus, Ohio, at Ohio State or elsewhere for the September 2007 LSAT? Taking a class? Anything? Is anyone on LSD from CBUS?

Anyone prepping for the Sept 29, 2007, LSAT in Columbus, OH? Enrolled in a Testmasters or Powerscore class?

Testmasters' Web site says the instructor for its class preparing for the Sept. 29 LSAT is Timothy Zimmerman. Anyone heard of him or had him as an instructor before? It looks as if he is also teaching the Pittsburgh Testmasters prep class that runs in July, August and September, too. Anyone?
