Studying for the LSAT / Re: Increasing LSAT speed - EyeQ

Is this an Advertisement for a speed reading program? Speed reading should NOT be used on the LSAT.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: TimMitchell

I know. I always enjoy Tim's posts and find him quite helpful. I felt bad for him since I'm sure he's capable of doing better. Ah well. I think he said he was going out drinking around 4 PM....(and yes, that makes me freaky for remembering this stuff and then mentioning it offhand like I know him).

Since when is a 165 a bad score? Doesn't that place someone in the 93rd percentile. Sure it won't get you into Yale, but it will get you into most schools.  ::)

You have much to learn about the ways of LSD, young butterfly.

Apparently so. I only got a 160 and recently graduated from FSU Law and could only land a job that pays six figures. I guess If I would have made a 170 or higher I could have started out making 7 figures.

Oh well that's life I guess. I'm bound to be a failure in law because I dind't live up to some ridiculous standard set by imiaginary people on LSD  :'(

I definitely don't think it's a bad score, it's just disappointing when your last 5 practice tests are 170+ and you drop 10 points on actual. I'm keeping my chin up for the Halloween LSAT. I'm  thinking I'll wear an "LSAT" ninja shirt like someone else was talking about.

TimMitchell is the Wallace Stevens of the 08-09 cycle.   :P

He must have been before my time, considered I registered in May or June. I'm in for the next three years, though. You guys are great... Plus I'm starting up a blog called MitchLax.com and I'm hoping I can get my hit count up by posting articles here.

Good Luck in October bro! You'll be fine. It was nice stressing out with you in the hours leading to score release. PM me if there is anything I can do for ya in the coming months.

Cheers,

Oooh, I know the answer to this "flaw" LR question...

D. BudLaw makes a generalization on the basis of a small, anecdotal, sample that may not be representative of the broader population.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT Analog Watch Tip
« on: July 05, 2008, 01:36:23 PM »
I don't see how studying for the exam properly and becoming comfortable with using an analog watch of your choice are in any way mutually exclusive. Clearly, however, using 3 watches for one test is not going to be productive.

If you are going to buy a watch for the LSAT, I'd reccomend getting one with a moving bezel. You can pick one up at Wal-Mart for like $35. That is my personal preference that I developed by taking about 50 preptests over the course of a month or two. That is one of the little things that I did that I felt contributed to getting a 177 on the real thing.

If you don't agree, then set your watch to noon and that will work fine too. Either way, find a watch of your preference... and use it... over... and over... and over... and over while taking timed preptests.

180 = 99 to 101
179 = 98 to 98
178 -----
177 = 97 to 97
176 = 96 to 96
175 = 95 to 95
174 -----
173 = 94 to 94
172 = 93 to 93
171 = 92 to 92
170 = 91 to 91


f-ing difficult scale.

I love my life.



That's a difficult scale?  I got frikkin 7 wrong and had a 171.  I would kill for your scale.

Yeah, looking at it again, it isn't too bad... I'm just sad that 97/101 was 177 and not 178.

[EDIT] But, Overall. I'm really stoked. Not trying to put a negative spin on scoring 177, just letting you know why I felt it was a tough score. -4 = 177 is pretty tight as far as I'm concerned.

Well... I screwed your girlfriend.

And your GPA screams "Try-hard striver feminine hygiene product."

I guess to each his own...

Haha, I love you too.
