Studying for the LSAT / LGB & LRB: How did you use 'em?
« on: December 01, 2005, 02:04:09 PM »
Glorious knights of LSATtery,

I've recently picked up the Powerscore books. I'm up to the first big test in the LGB, haven't started the other book yet. It occurred to me to ask how others used the books. How early did you start on them relative to your LSAT date? Did you continue to take tests while going through them? Did you sit down one weekend and go through both, or take it a few pages every night for a month or two? Have you reread them since finishing?

I'm not going to pretend that there's an optimal way to use the books, but I'm curious what your experiences were.

It's so friendly. Every time I go to post, it's all, "'sup?"

And I'm always like, "Not much. 'Sup wit you?"

That is all.

Just got mine back. Ugh. Long story short: my score dropped six points from my previos [first] practice. I know about measurement error, regression toward the mean, etc... My question is, has anyone else tried this test? Is it harder and/or did your score go down from your average?

I'm not trying to be a conspiracy theorist; I've reached acceptance and I know 158 is now my baseline to which I'll compare my scores once I start prepping, but still. I'm just curious.

Law School Applications / Taking an "easy" semester?
« on: November 13, 2005, 04:21:05 PM »
Do adcomms notice/care that some of us take a really easy courseload the last few semesters before applying? I'd like to boost my GPA, and with that in mind I'm thinking about pushing all my 400-level courses to finish my minor back to senior year. I might do a 100-level intro to logic, for instance (I've been meaning to take that for a while), maybe some other easy stuff.

I imagine this is pretty common. Do adcomms care?

Law School Applications / Fall 2007 Roll Call!
« on: November 07, 2005, 11:35:35 PM »
Everybody who's getting an early start on preparing for the F'2007-W'2008 round of apps, sign in! I've just started thinking seriously about preparing myself for the LSAT, etc. in the last week or so, and this board has been a godsend. I imagine I'll take the LSAT in June 2006 after prepping full time in May and (hopefully) a few hours a week before that. Then I should be able to get my apps in as soon as they open the gates in the fall... Right now, it just feels good to have plenty of time ahead of me to do it all.

I'm blogging the whole, yearlong process (in my sig), but I'm not trying to pimp my own site, I just want to get an idea of who else is on the site right now with the same timeframe?

Law School Applications / What subjects does LSDAS remove from your GPA?
« on: November 06, 2005, 01:40:56 AM »
So I understand that I've got to submit my transcripts to LSDAS to have the GPA refactored, and that one of the things the steps of that refactoring process is the removal of certain subjects deemed irrelevant. Which subjects are these? I've got the odd Musicology course, some Stats, and some (mandatory) natural science hanging around on my transcript. Will they stay there once LSDAS gets through with me?

Also, something I thought of while writing this post: what about the credits I took while in high school? They were at a college near my home, and I'm not sure now whether they were graded or not. If they were, though, I'm willing to bet it wasn't at the A-level... how vital is it that I include these (they were entirely unrelated to my major).
