Studying for the LSAT / Re: Break from studying?

By the way, thanks for suggesting those logic puzzle magazines. I picked up a Penny Press magazine yesterday evening and tried a few puzzles. Same logic as the LSAT, but a lot harder! I was surprised. Whenever I saw those on the newsstands, I figured they were simple. But these have a lot more variables and force you to make many more deductions than even the hardest LSAT logic games.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: bare minimum at Georgetown

I've just begun looking into all of these programs, so I'm in no way qualified as an authority on this. But I've been thinking about it a lot. GMU might be attractive to a Virginia resident, because it costs quite a bit less. It seems like the academic opportunities are excellent at GULC, GW, and GMU. But the big difference is employability. If you're looking to work at a big law firm, I can't imagine GW or GMU being a better choice than Georgetown, full-time or part-time. If you get good grades in the Georgetown PT program, there's not a big difference in employment opportunities than if you were in the full-time program. That's at least what a part-time student told me, so maybe he's biased. Granted, the PT program will always be on your transcript, even if you transfer to FT, and that might give you a small prestige ding. But still, the Georgetown name on your transcript is a huge benefit.

-Go through "The Big Fat Genius Guide to LSAT Logic Games".

What do people think of this book? I've already gone through the LGB, and I'd love to get another take on the logic games and more practice. But I don't want to get confused with too many different techniques and approaches. Are the LGB and Big Fat Genius Guide similar?

Thanks. Do you recommend any specific deductive logic books/workbooks?

I'd prefer FT, but I think it's probably a 50/50 shot whether I'd get into that program. I have a much better shot at PT, based on the statistics. If I apply for the FT/PT option, will it be harder to get into the PT program than if I applied for only PT? I'd rather go PT than not go at all.

Doesn't GULC have an option allowing you to apply to the FT and PT programs at the same time? Has anyone done this? How does it work? If they really like you, do they give you the option of either? Or do you just get assigned to one of the programs?

Studying for the LSAT / Break from studying?
« on: October 10, 2005, 04:53:49 AM »
I had decided to take the October LSAT in early September. I studied like crazy, and I raised my diagnostic score from 159 to 169 within the month. But I realized that I probably could raise my score if I waited to take the test, and I can't start school until fall 2007 anyway. So I rescheduled for February and am taking a full-length course starting in early December. I'm wondering if you think I should keep doing practice tests until my class starts in December or if it helps to take a break. I'm worried that if I keep doing a few practice tests a week, I'll run out of them by the time the test is approaching. But I also don't want to lose the skills I gained from practicing in September. I figure there are folks on this board who have postponed their tests, so I'd like to know if you suggest taking a break or practicing for four months straight. Thanks!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Anybody thought of waiting a year?

I was going to take it in October but rescheduled for February at the last minute. I had practiced, but not enough. And I hadn't taken a class. I figure that every extra point increases my chances for admission to a good school and for scholarships, so waiting a year is definitely worth it.

Why is February undisclosed? Do they re-use the questions on future tests? Or could I expect some old questions to be used on the February LSAT?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: February LSAT and Winter Testmasters Course
« on: October 02, 2005, 06:00:37 PM »
In my area Testmasters offers two schedules for the February LSAT. The early winter course starts the first week of December and is spread out through the end of January. The late winter class has the schedule you've described. I'm planning on the early winter class, because it seems less packed together.
