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.

They do get checks and some rather sweet deals from the tribe. In my family(not blood, unfortunately!!!)'s tribe, they get free tuition, room and board for any institution of education they attend for life.

If it were me, I'd totally just be a professional student...

Don't suppose that going to Arizona and tending the family graves and such would let me claim to be an URM...

Or make an interesting PS? Better than coming from south central blah blah?

You could probably run Virtual PC...although its slooooooow

They won't let you use VPC because the point of the law exam software is to lock you out of other stuff, and if you're just emulating Windows, it can't do that... :\

I had a dream that I transferred to UWisconsin-Madison and started over and had a crazy party-hardy lifestyle.

USC has the better outfits, that's for sure. But after living and having lunch with USC cheerleaders for 20 years, the fakeness that the well-off tend to have gets to you...


Well, we weren't comparing who you'd want to marry....we're talking Playboy ratings, aka, pure adulterated hotness.  Talking to them is optional.

I meant fakeness in terms of hotness. It's a turn-off to know that all their hair is bleached, their boobs(if they have big ones) are fake, and they dress ... well.

UCSB is in the upcoming Playboy campus article coming out for May or something, so I dunno what's going on in these rankings.

All of the top law schools have some sort of housing specifically for law school students. Yale, Harvard, Stanford...Berkeley has a lot of grad housing.
