Studying for the LSAT / Re: Feb. LSAT

Which one is more difficult, Feb or June? I heard curve of June test is very high. Does anyone have input?

I don't think it matters. LSAC has so many statisticians and other very smart people who adjust the curve so that if a test is more difficult, the scoring is easier.

Benadryl will slow you down on the test the next morning (trust me, I still have the lousy calculus grade to prove it).

If you really can't go to sleep, take a little valerian. It's an herb that's available in most nutritional stores. It helps get you to sleep within a half hour, and you don't feel groggy when you wake up.

Anyone else getting an early start on applications for Fall 07 and preparing for the February LSAT? If so, what are you doing to prepare at this point?

Does TM include a fifth section in its proctored exams?

Is that the real testmasters or the fake one?  Testmasters180 only offers courses in Arlington and Charlottesville for Virginia. 

I'm sure that it's the real Testmasters. Testmasters may only offer Virginia classes in Arlington and Charlottesville. But DC isn't in Virginia, so that's probaly why it doesn't show up when you do your search.

There's a TM class for the February exam in DC that starts in the beginning of December and runs through January. It's spread out a bit more. It's not in Arlington, but it's on the metro line.

That's good to know, because my diagnostic is 13 points below your LSAT.  I'm taking the February one though, and there's no options for winter, so it's crammed into the end of December and January.  Oh well, I'll start studying beforehand and January will be like the bootcamp of LSAT training, lol.

I agree with what Typhoon wrote. The book isn't something that can be easily summarized - it gives you a new way to think about the logic games. Obviously, it won't guarantee perfect scores on the games sections. Some people just don't get the games, no matter how hard they try. But I found it more intuitive than the LGB. I no longer waste time looking for every deduction I can think of. One caveat with this book is that you have to be willing to put in the work to absorb all the material. It has a lot of narration throughout the exercises, and you have to read all of it a few times to really understand what the author is doing. Frankly, it's worth the small price. At best, it will help you smooth over the rough spots and bring you closer to a perfect score. At worst, it won't help you and you'll be out $30 or $40. When you think about the cost of law school and the fact that a few extra points can get you a scholarship, it's a pretty small cost.

Studying for the LSAT / Big Fat Genius guide

I'm taking the February LSAT, and I already worked through the Logic Games Bible. I'm signed up for a class, but it doesn't begin until December. So I took the advice of someone on this board and ordered the Big Fat Genius logic games guide. I was skeptical at first, because the author plays down the value of deductions, but I have gone through half the book now and I highly recommend it. The author has a very efficient way of approaching the games, and it's helped me speed up while acing the section. If only there were something like this for the RC section...

Does anyone know if this is definitely going to have a scored writing sample? Or is that just a rumor? How long would it take for them to score all of those writing samples? I'd imagine it would take a while.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: bare minimum at Georgetown
« on: October 11, 2005, 07:33:28 AM »
GULC is near Capitol Hill, near Union Station. The area is perfectly safe during the day and just a little sketchy in the evening. They offer free shuttles to Union Station at night, so safety really isn't a problem. And the area is really developing nicely. Of course, I wouldn't wander around lost there at 2 a.m. It definitely doesn't have the traditional college campus feel that you get when you're on the Georgetown main campus.

Georgetown is 4 miles from their regular campus, that is true.  But I'm not sure whether it'll matter all that much unless you want to do a joint degree.  And GW is in a nice part of town (not sure if it's historic or not).  Georgetown is on Capital Hill and GW is near Foggy Bottom, so if you look on a DC map you should find them both pretty easily.  Both are nice neighborhoods actually, but since I'd like to work or volunteer at an NGO as much as possible, being near the capital is nice as many I am interested in working with are close to there.  But I wouldn't say GW isn't in a great area, just that someone said earlier that Georgetown is on the edge of the ghetto, which is definitely not the case.  Both neighborhoods are full of things to do I think.

Is that the Law School that is on Capital Hill?  Also, I heard Foggy Bottom was a historical district.  I am only going on what I have heard, I have not been to DC since I was in in 8th grade, don't remember much.  Also, being with the reg. campus gives more of the college feel, which some people enjoy and some would just as soon do without.  Just sayin.  Mainly, please answer my first question.
