Where should I go next fall? / Re: Summer Before Law School
« on: November 26, 2005, 04:36:53 AM »
i don't have any expert knowledge, but your summer before law school is the last time you'll be able to have a good time free of "the law." I don't think it'll make much of a difference and the times this topic has come up in the past people have simply advised everyone to do whatever they wanted to do before they died, like travel, write a novel, hang out with friends, etc.

Congrats everybody!   ;D :D :) :D ;D :D :)

I'm only a teensy bit jealous.  (I'll only get really jealous when people start getting into the schools I applied to ) ;)

You got into Harvard! Who cares about the rest? Yale, maybe...

General Off-Topic Board / Re: Does Alcohol Really Kill Colds?

I'm visiting the graves of step-family, which unfortunately doesn't entitle me to URM status. Oh well.

At Rustler's Rooste, everyone was celebrating ASU's victory over Arizona. :(

I'm a little intoxicated right now, hanging out in the lounge of the Wild Horse Pass Sheraton. Stupid ASU. I was totally rooting for you guys too.

True dat, Habeas. I guess I've got little fear of catching a cold in Arizona tomorrow. Is it still hot there?

I'll be joining you in AZ later today...

Affirmative Action / Re: Thought experiment for AA haters

Honest to god, I would. But that might just be because of where I'm from and my clashing identification with different ethnic groups.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: What's your study schedule like ? Here's mine
« on: November 21, 2005, 08:13:18 AM »
Daily Schedule:
Stumble out of bed at 3 PM, cursing self for missing class again. Check LSD before shower.
Shower.
Check LSD to see if there are any new posts in threads I've replied to. Check new topics to see if there's anything that interests me.
Eventually guilt trip self into doing a few sections of scattered problems.
Go on rounds, decide not to really care about much of anything, run back to room.
Try to sleep and fail. Check LSD. Do some more problems. Probably is about a test or two total now per day, on a good day.

Alternately, replace going on rounds with drinking.

Studying for the LSAT / Frustrated?
« on: November 21, 2005, 08:03:37 AM »
I know I am. I was super excited to score 170 on my first diagnostic, cold, before I knew much fo anything about the LSAT-I hadn't even considered anywhere besides Berkeley and UCLA. Of course, now that Berkeley looks like a bit more of a long-shot after hearing about their GPA whoring, I'm not so sure anymore about even that.

So I've been doing the LSAT studying thing, trying to do at least a test a day for the last week, in addition to various forms of prep over the last year. It seems like I'm consistently getting around 170, regardless of the time put in. And then I did one tonight and missed 10 problems in just one logical reasoning section. They were all dumb mistakes, but it's not like I'm really getting burnt out, as I know I haven't studied nearly enough. And I already took a break this weekend and went home.

On top of that, I found out my school's testing center is in this horrible, horrible lecture hall with tiny half desks that flip out over the seat.

I was planning on hardcore studying over Thanksgiving break during many lengthy car trips in preparation for Dec, but now I'm not so sure. I'm debating just focusing on school until the June LSAT when I can take it at a better test center like USC, and have more time to prepare.

Is it worth it to be done earlier if it doesn't seem like the prep is helping? There's no consistent pattern of mistakes, just dumb things I don't get the first couple reads.

Phew. Just writing this is cathartic.
