I can't sleep.

Studying for the LSAT / Anyone else Phi Beta Kappa?
« on: October 19, 2006, 06:01:34 PM »
It sucks, doesn't it, to do so well, graduate with honors (Summa Cum Laude for me), and get elected to PBK, only to potentially see it all go to S*H*I*T with one email over the next couple of days?

Studying for the LSAT / Email Scores BEFORE LSAC Posting, or vice-versa?
« on: October 17, 2006, 06:04:04 PM »
Will we get emails before, after, or simultaneously with the LSAC website posting?  Does anyone from June or before have an answer to this?

For some reason, I imagine the scores will post online before they are emailed.  Just want to be ready.  Thanks!

We had one LR section that was extended by about a minute by a none-too-attentive proctor.  Anyone else?

Studying for the LSAT / Most difficult Oct. game to set up?
« on: September 30, 2006, 01:34:56 PM »
Of the scored sections:

It took me 4 minutes and 3 different setups to figure out the Graduation Year/Car game.  I don't think there's been anything like it before.

This sounds like agonizing over insignificant details, but I have to resort to reading glasses once in a while if the print is too small for my aging eyes. 

The LSAC PTs are generally okay for me without having to use reading glasses. 

Can someone comment on this?  I will bring my glasses with me to be sure, but am curious about what I can expect on Saturday.  Thanks!

Studying for the LSAT / With New ABA Rules - Cancel or Retake?
« on: September 26, 2006, 09:09:39 AM »
Trying to develop a strategy...

With the new ABA rules of higher score, if I don't FEEL LIKE I did as I expect to this Saturday (164-166), what is the best strategy?  Waiting for the score and then perhaps retake in December, or cancel and prepare for December?


1)  Take test, bomb (according to me) and get a high-150's, retake in December and try to shoot for mid-160s.

2)  Take test, feel uneasy, cancel score, and retake in December.

What would you do?

Studying for the LSAT / Saturday's test: Doing this for...

... my two young kids who, unselfishly & unwittingly, are putting a significant part of their lives on hold so I can do this & go to LS.  To Cal & Serena:  Daddy will make this up to you, I promise.

... to my wife, who didn't deserve all of this when she married me.  Baby, thanks for hanging on. 

Wherever you are in your studies and your life, good luck to you on Saturday.

True to Robin Singh's word, TM has posted the "78 Flawed Methods of Reasoning" on the student section of their website.

It is a beautiful thing.
