Studying for the LSAT / Re: Official June 2006 LSAT Scores Thread
« on: June 29, 2006, 11:01:15 AM »
In February I got my score kind of late, around 4pm I think. I remember getting it pretty late in the day because I left work right after I got it. I was hitting the re-load button on the lsac site a lot, and I don't really remember it being down that day - I could be wrong though. I'm all worked up to get them today - I'll be so sad if we don't!

When the scores came out in February, I don't remember the LSAC site going down, but the LSD site slowed waaaay down and then even stopped working for about an hour and when it came back on, people were posting scores.
That was the Friday before the Monday that scores were supposed to be e-mailed out. I feel like because it's a holiday weekend, they might start sending out scores today and finish sending them tomorrow, instead of doing them Friday and Saturday like they usually do.
You think they're sitting there emailing people one-by-one, don't you?


No, but they certainly don't send them all out in one go.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Study Groups in NYC????????
« on: March 08, 2006, 05:39:40 PM »
Did you guys ever set up a study group in NYC? I live in Brooklyn, and work in Manhattan. Where in Queens are you? If it's not too far, I'd come to Queens. I took the Feb. LSAT and am retaking in June, and would really like a study group!

I'm trying to figure out a good study plan for the June LSAT. I took the test in February, and bombed it, even though I was scoring in the 165-173 range in all my practice tests. I think it was nerves.

I know that I need to be taking lots and lots of practice tests, but I don't know when I should start taking these again, etc.

I'd appreciate hearing other people's study plans for their second round of LSAT prep, so I can get ideas for mine.

Sorry if this has already been discussed!
Thanks!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Testmasters
« on: February 26, 2006, 01:02:30 AM »
I took testmasters180, which is the real deal - i was talking with my testmasters teacher about how there are two companies with the same name, and from what I remember, testmasters180 was formed first, but just under the name "Testmasters" and then the second (and not so great) testmasters company formed, and got the domain name first, so the real testmasters had to add the 180 to their URL. I think there might even be some law suit regarding the use of the name 'testmasters' by the fake testmasters company.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT SCORED SHOCKED!!!!

You should look into the UN Volunteer programme - I have lots of friends who've done it and really loved it. You'd most likely be abroad for a while.
Also, I work as essentially a 'glorified secretary' for a human rights organization, and my experience with them will definitely help my application, and has been amazing in terms of what I've learned. Taking a job at the entry level will give you skills,  experiences that will be really useful later in your career.
If you're interested in the NGO sector, there are tons of associate, research associate and programme associate positions in NY and DC. Your experience in Peace Corps will make you a great candidate for many of those positions.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: should I take a class again?
« on: February 25, 2006, 12:14:27 PM »
well I really liked the testmasters class, and they use only real LSAT questions rather than making up their own, which I thought was really helpful in my practicing. the class also gives you access to more recent LSATs that aren't in the 3 'Actual LSAT' books (we got LSATs from 2004 and 2005).
it was also helpful in terms of motivating me to study - I work full time, and definitely woulnd't have had the energy or motivation to teach myself the LSAT if I didn't take a class.
The class I took met twice a week for 4 hours. If I take it again, I know that I won't HAVE to attend every class, but I'll also know that if I'm having trouble with something, I can ask a teacher and get help. the cost was $1250, but the organization I work for paid for half - the cost of taking it again is $650, and again, my organization will pay for half. So I feel like it's probably worth it. I don't know.

Studying for the LSAT / should I take a class again?
« on: February 25, 2006, 11:11:26 AM »
I took a Testmasters class in the Fall of last year, and then spent two months doing practice tests on my own and my score jumped about 20 points from my first diag to the practice tests I was taking in the weeks before the real thing.
I'm planning on re-taking the test in June, since I seem to have bombed the Feb test, and I'm thinking about taking the testmasters class again. This will give me tons of questions to practice with, and also opportunities to ask teachers for clarification when I don't understand things, etc. It would also mean that I prepare for three months before the test.
For those who've taken it twice, do you think this is a good idea? how long did you study for before the second test? I don't want to burn out, but I also don't want to feel unprepared.

so the scales now are much harsher than they were previously? Is practicing from the LSAC practice test books with tests from 1995 kind of a waste of time? I practiced with tests from 2000-2004 as well as tests from the 90s, and I noticed a difference, but it wasn't huge. That's so frustrating that the test is so much harder now, yet the majority of the practice tests aren't.
