Studying for the LSAT / Re: Anyone here try addy?

I don't think "trying" adderall is going to magically make you gain three points. Are you also going to use it during the actual test?

It may help you sustain your attention longer when studying, but if you are thinking you can just pop a pill and bam! you get a score increase...serious misconception.

If you have done the work to get to where are you are now, why not just put in a little extra for those 3 points?

My summer is probably going to look something like playing GTA 20 hours and sleeping for 4 hours... As fun as this probably will be, I am wondering how I could start studying for the LSAT with all this free time. I'm only a freshman (well, sophomore) so I'm not in "OMG WTF HWO CAN I STUDY I NEED A 180 OR ELSE I WILL FAIL AND CAN"T GET A JOB MODE." I would just like some tips on how to approach the LSAT for the first time... Like should I just jump in and take a practice test, or could someone recommend some books possibly? Assume I know nothing about the LSAT because I don't...

I suggest you just have fun and maybe start your prep next summer. Live it up....undergrad time passes way too fast. This is coming from someone that thrives off: "OMG WTF HWO CAN I STUDY I NEED A 180 OR ELSE I WILL FAIL AND CAN"T GET A JOB MODE."

Seriously though, you could start by doing some practice tests just to get a feel for the material/evaluate your starting point.

Yeah, saw the 170.

Is he worth the $$$? Is he boring or entertaining?

I think I failed P.E. that year b/c I refused to participate. I was learning much more sleeping in the b-ball stands!

You could get a job at a law firm during that time and gain some law-related work experience to put on your resume.

Don't do this.  People who work in law-related fields have a hard time standing out in the application process.  Do something unique that will set you apart from the crowd.  There's plenty of time to learn about law during law school.

As for waiting a year and redoing the LSAT, I think its a fine idea.  If you truly hit 150+ cold, then you have the potential with several months of study of hitting a VERY good score.  And even if you don't want to do big law or academia or supreme court clerkships, you can save a lot of money (spelled scholarships) by showing a better LSAT score.

D@mn....I knew I should've tried out for American Idol.  ;)
