Studying for the LSAT / Re: Hard vs. Easy LSAT
« on: December 12, 2005, 04:18:09 PM »
Yeah. My nightmare is getting two RC sections. Even though one will be experimental, so much tedious reading will likely cause my score to plunge at least a few points. I pray for two LG sections, preferable first and third. That will help break up dense reading.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How's everyones prep for the Feb LSAT going?

I highly recommend the Logic Games Bible. I got it on Friday and worked through the first few chapters over the weekend. It's already made me much more efficient on games. It's kind of pricey - almost $50 - but well, well worth it.

I just took my diagnostic for my prep class and got a 157  >:( but I totally bombed the games section, I missed 13 so I hope that will improve.  Through the first two sections (rc and lr) I was on pace to get a 170 and then the last two (lr and lg) I missed half of the problems.  I think this might be due to test fatigue, and the fact that I suck a** at games.

Studying for the LSAT / Toughest game?
« on: December 08, 2005, 06:19:22 PM »
I'm sure this has been asked a zillion times, but hey, there's a new round of test-takers. What do you think is the toughest game? I've only done a few practice tests, but so far the one about the doctor's schedule has been the most difficult. Are there others that are harder?

Yes, it is crappy recycled paper. I don't know what the SAT booklets are like, but the LSAT paper is pretty bad. You can write on it, but if you write or erase too hard you rip the paper. Not a big deal, but it sure would be nicer to have real paper.

What kind of paper is the real LSAT printed on? It's not that crappy, grayish-brown recycled stuff like those free SAT practice booklets you could always get from the counselor's office (not sure if you remember this), is it? As long as its clear and white and easy to write on, I'm fine with it I guess.

That's one of the things I like about my TM class. They give four proctored diagnostics, with extra sections. You have to bubble in an official LSAT score sheet, and they even give you the tests on the same thin paper that LSAT uses. (why can't LSAT invest in normal paper that doesn't rip when you erase???)

One thing that I hadn't practiced until my tutor suggested it was using the bubble sheet.

WAY bigger deal than I anticipated.

For some reason, seeing my answers bubbled in a straight line made me start second guessing myself. I took a 10 point nose-dive the first time I practiced with a bubble sheet. I was like "holy sh*t!" and used one for the rest of my practice up to test day.

I think it was worthwhile, b/c I don't have any terrible misbubbling stories!

Yes I plan on taking timed practice tests (with the added section), just not until 3 or 4 weeks before, then I will do 9 in total.  

That's my strategy until test day. And the extra section really makes a big difference, particularly when you don't give yourself a break until after the third one. I'm probably going to take a few in the classroom where the test is held, just to fully prepare myself (yeah, I know, pretty anal retentive).

I hear you on the LG. I recently began preparing for Feb. I either get an entire game correct or mess up one rule and miss almost all of the questions.  I usually get one wrong per LR section, 2-4 wrong in RC, and then the games determine my fate. I've taken four prep tests , and they've been all over the map because of LG: 167, 159, 171, 168. I'm hoping to get back up into the 170s. Even though LSAC says 170 and above is the top two percent of test-takers, looking at comments on this board it seems very hard to get into a good school without being in the 170s. I just started TM, and it's very helpful, if only to be forced to focus completely on LSAT strategy for four hours.

I began studying over the summer for the October test, but then I decided I couldn't begin classes until 2007, so I rescheduled to the February test. I had done about half of the available practice tests when I stopped studying in September. I didn't look at LSAT material in October or November, and I just started studying again. Some of the questions, I think, have been on tests I've already seen. But it doesn't help me very much (especially on LG, but also LR and RC), because I don't remember what the right answer is. I always have to work through the problem and look for the flaw, assumption, etc. So I don't think it will hurt you much to do the same questions over again.

Law School Applications / GULC PT feb. lsat?
« on: December 05, 2005, 02:36:03 PM »
I'm taking the February LSAT, and I was planning to apply to schools for the 2007 entering class. But now I'm considering sending in applications for the fall of 2006. I'm most interested in GULC's part-time program. The deadline is march 1, and the Web site says it accepts Feb. LSATs, but it's strongly encouraged to take it later. How much more difficult is it to get into the GULC part-time program if you take the LSAT so late? If it's much tougher, I'll just wait a year.
