Studying for the LSAT / Re: experimental
« on: June 08, 2009, 10:21:21 PM »
I had two LR (1st and 3rd) before the break and one LR after the break.
Hopefully, the second LR (3rd sections) is the experimental.
what's your thoughts?
It's usually easier to know which one is experimental. It is just that this time 2 LRs occurred before the break.

i had the same version of the exam. i think the first one was the experimental one because when i added all the sections not including section 3 (1, 2, 4 and 5) the questions were over 101 and when i added it without section 1 it amounted to 101 exactly. leads me to believe section 1 was the experimental which is good because i bombed it because of my nerves.

good luck though to you and everyone either way!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSD- Really sad (Advice Needed!)

I wanted to thank you two for your responses. This journey has been so crazy for me but to be honest you two have been there answering my questions every step of the way despite having your own troubles to deal with.

Im still a little emotional about the situation because I felt I was so ready for law school and reading your responses really brought tears to me again.  :'( I wanted to say THANK YOU so much and that I know, just KNOW, that people like you will have nothing but success not only in law school but in everything you do. There's something to be said about how people treat one another and you two have been nothing but so kind to me.

Thank you. I hope to come back in June and really have some great news to give to you guys and hear about how amazingly excited you are to begin law school. Ive taken your advice to heart and Im going to probably end up re-reading it many times during these months ahead as a reminder. Your words never go unnoticed with me!

Thanks Blue and Heartbreaker  :)

Studying for the LSAT / LSD- Really sad (Advice Needed!)
« on: December 07, 2008, 11:51:45 PM »
I really want to hear especially from some of my favorite members BlueSkies, Heartbreaker, and Earlcat if possible but basically here's my situation-

I signed up for the October LSAT and freaked out during the exam, blanked, and canceled by the time the first section ended.

I signed up for the December one this past weekend and the same thing happened.

I now have 2 cancellations and have come to terms with (though many tears were shed) with the fact that I wont be able to proceed with this cycle. I have all of my LOR's processed, my PS and DS are done and ready to go, and pretty much everything was set financially to apply to all of my dream schools.

I wanted to see what you thought of my situation in terms of postponing to work more (full time job obviously since i have already graduated college) and then putting things into perspective (i.e. it's just an exam and i need to go in there relaxed and not get nervous when they start section 1) and then re-taking in June. im worried schools will see the 2 cancellations as a sign of incompetence. i know i fumbled here but i tried my hardest- i studied and studied and then studied some more. i gave 6 months of my life EVERY single day to the LSAT. i quit my job, never worked a day in 6 months, hardly saw friends etc. and look where it got me. It's definitely upsetting and Im very disappointed in myself for letting the exam get the best of me when I clearly was performing well at home in timed conditions (even with the proctor dvd).

Sorry if Im rambling. I wanted to join you guys in law school in August but I think mentally I might not be prepared for February and with rolling admissions/money being handed out already I dont think it would suit me for that time.

What do you guys think? I appreciate you guys so much. Thanks in advance!

not to take away from your acceptance but i had an aquaintance who went to Mich. State and had the worst things ever to say about it. i did my own research as well and the consensus on that school isnt a good one. it's actually pretty horrible. i would consider postponing law school and maybe re-applying next term. i know it sounds insane but if it's either MS or postponing i doubt many here would tell you to go to MS esp. when you get work experience, save money, and then move somewhere comfortably.

youre missing way too many LR questions- youre around 10 missed for each section. you need to work on those the most right now since your Games score is alright and the arguments comprise of 50% of the exam. do what Earl said- study each question and methodically break down why it's right and why it's wrong. more importantly, why the answer YOU chose is right and why the others are not.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Good enough for SMU part time?
« on: November 17, 2008, 09:42:12 AM »
in general, are there any glaring disadvantages to applying PT? does SMU still allow you opportunities for summer internships and law review?

No disadvantages. They absolutely allow PT students just as many opportunities for summer internships and law review.

Thank you so much for your reply Holden. That's great to know! Do you know if this is the norm for schools or do they really approach it differently in terms of the disadvantages of doing PT?
