I hear you! I just finished my first year too and what a mentally exhausting year it was! Neglecting family and friends who all hate me now. I hope all this is worth it in the end. I mean, the end seems like such a long way to go but in the words of our dean, "If you survived your 1st year.....the other years are a cinch."
I hope that's true!
What your dean told you is true for most law schools. However, many T4s fail just as many students after their second year as they did after the first one.

The one I'm in has 53 students and the class right next to us looks like it has about that many too.

Bahahaha! yeah probably .
I think their prep method was handed down to L. Ron Hubbard by aliens from a distant star in a galaxy known for its formal logic abilities.

It does sound like crapola, doesn't it? How the heck did they manage to write 6 pages describing their method without making it ANY clearer to the reader what they actually do? It's amazing. I am also discouraged by the fact that I noticed several typo's in their prose and that they elect not to include student testimonials in their materials. None of that necessarily means that their method doesn't have some insights to offer, though, so I remain curious to hear from people who actually used them.

this name was just suggested to me: www.binarysolution.net
Anyone here know anything about these guys? Their approach to LSAT prep is a little hard to get from their webpage.

It is my belief that the LR sections of the LSAT are constructed such that the questions get generally harder as you progress through the section. That's not to say that they don't sprinkle some harder questions up front, but the section is generally weighted so that most of the last questions are more challenging. With that in mind, I don't think it's odd to see you miss more questions nearer the end of section than the beginning. I think that's by design.

Thanks for the advice. Gad, I am totally dreading going through another classroom experience for this thing.

how long before your LSAT did you take the course? I guess I'm asking: how long does it take to work through every LSAT question there is?

What's up with there being two testmasters? There's one at www.testmasters.com
and there's one at www.testmasters180.com
...the first one seems to guarantee a 10 point increase but the second is run by the fabled robin singh and makes a big stink about having 99th percentile teachers. When people recommend taking test masters on this site are they talking about the Robin Singh one or the other one?
I already took a princeton review course which had no real effect on my score. I was scoring fine going in and fine going out. I'd like to improve my score from fine to WOW!, but I will commit a horrendous form of seppuku if invest more time and money in another arduous and pointless journey. Anyone have any thoughts?
