Studying for the LSAT / Re: Adding a 5th Section
« on: August 19, 2008, 08:53:28 AM »
I'm going to do the following:

-White-out the section numbers at the top corners of each section.
-Make copies of each page of the actual preptest, front and back. 
-Make copies of the 5th section, front and back.  I plan on using sections I haven't taken before.  I will be using reading comp sections b/c they are my least consistent. 
-Put the 5th sections somewhere in the mix randomly. 
-Put a thick cover sheet over the top of each of the sections so that I don't know which section comes up next. 
-Divide the 5 sections into a pile of 3 sections (before the 5 minute break), and a pile of 2 sections (after the 5 minute break).
-Dive in with strict timing!

You can't get much closer to emulating an administration of the LSAT than by following the above!

I'm trying to start my PS, but I'm finding it difficult to come up with a coherent theme. 

I can't decide if I should write on 'why I want to go to law school', 'why I would be a good law student', or something more unique...  What have some of you written about?  Have you chosen one aspect of your life that you think illustrates your potential as a lawyer, or have you told a more chronological history of your post-secondary educational experience? 

I am having a bit of writer's block.

I belive my highest score was a 176, but I averaged around 171.  I got a 166 on the lamest LSAT in the world - June '07.  I'm focused on keeping my raw score consistently above 91.  A given raw score corresponds to quite different scaled scores depending on the test, but given the historical data for scaled scores, a score of 91+ should equal at least 170. 

I suggest focusing on consistently scoring a raw score within a certain range.  The 88 that I scored on the June LSAT only yielded a 166 while on some tests it would have gotten me a 171.  Shoot for the raw score that you need to get assuming the toughest curve possible.
