Studying for the LSAT / Re: Dec 6, 2008 LSAT

I almost forgot how to write in cursive - it took longer to complete that certifying statement than it did to finish the writing sample at the end of the test!

Law School Admissions / Re: Are post-college classes taken into account?

I took a couple classes after graduation, and I get the same results through LSDAS ("SEE TRANS"). Kind of a bummer, because those classes would have increased my gpa!

2)PrepTest 34 (June 2001)- Section 4 Questions 13-18 (7 different trains arrive at Middlebrook).

3)PrepTest 31 (June 2000)- Section 1 Questions 14-18 (Operations, Productions, Sales).

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Mechanical Pencils NOT ACCEPTED??
« on: December 06, 2008, 01:28:43 AM »
I'm glad they banned mechanical pencils. I took quite a few timed PrepTests at the public library; I kept my focus through little kids screaming in the youth zone, older kids skateboarding right outside the window, and the intermittant chatter at the reference desk. Then came the girl with the click-pen. She sat at the table directly in front of me, and it started within 60 seconds of her arrival:


***click-CLICK***   ***click-CLICK***


***click-CLICK***   ***click-CLICK***    ***click-CLICK***   ***click-CLICK***


My heart rate increased rapidly; I felt my blood pressure soar. I panicked as I imagined taking the LSAT while being pummeled by a sporadic set of percussive sound waves bent on preventing me from reading anything longer than six words. It was the only distraction able to break my concentration during my training; I wanted to beat the crap out of that girl and blow up her click-pen. I had to remind myself that no-one will have mechanical pens/pencils at the test, and I nearly fainted in relief as I got up to vomit in the restroom.

Good Luck on the LSAT; remember it's no harder than any Practice Test you've already taken!!!

Although smoking isn't permitted in the testing room, neither cigarettes nor lighters are expressly forbidden by LSAC. However, if anyone asks, you will have to inform them that your cigarettes are either hygeine or medical products.

Good luck on the test!

Oh wait, I know this one!!!

Five digit product codes...I think it's from the June 2007 LSAT. Classic warmup game.

I still have to take PrepTests 37, 43 and 49 under timed conditions. I'm going to take two tonight, get to bed by 11, get up at 4 and take the last one right before the test. Then I'll warm up with some extra logic games while I'm standing in line.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Questions for musicians in law school

Are any/all of you working towards working in the entertainment/media law fields?  I'm applying soon, and working on my personal statement for applications.  I'm leaning towards a statement about how my experiences so far in music and the music industry have led to my interest in entertainment law (I currently work for a live music production/booking company, and previously interned for a prominent entertainment attorney/artist manager, and the Grammys), and I'm curious if anyone else has had success with a statement similar to mine.

I devoted about 1/3 of my Personal Statement to my music career (I sang lead vocals for several hard rock bands for 10+ years); I got accepted for Spring 2009. The general theme of my essay was accountability, and I highlighted my responsibilities for band behavior, live concert promotion and recording studio etiquette/efficiency to support that theme. You're welcome to read it, just let me know.

I would suggest illustrating not only how your experiences have led to an interest in entertainment law, but also how they have specifically prepared you for the study of entertainment law. Write a statement so compelling that the reader is rooting for you to succeed as an attorney. Just keep it real.

Good luck!

Ahhh, the famed Letters Of Recommendation. These constitute the part of your application over which you have the least amount of control, so it's natural to be nervous about them. I would suggest getting the request forms to your recommenders ASAP.

Oh, yeah, I almost forgot, you asked about the LSAT. Don't worry about it, and don't study Friday. Not even a little. Get to bed early, eat a proper breakfast, and do some gentle warmups before the test.

Good luck!

Some say Reading Comprehension sections are usually easier than your mind wants to believe. Find a way to avoid getting psyched out by them. I like to write a short note after each paragraph indicating the purpose of that paragraph. I also like to circle sentences that state a conclusion. If I come across a word too big for my vocabulary, I make sure I properly understand it within the given context. Slow down a bit to avoid skipping important details; I'd rather get through the passage in 150 seconds with a solid understanding than get through it in 85 seconds with a bit of uncertainty. Cheers!
