Studying for the LSAT / Re: motivate?
« on: February 19, 2009, 07:31:54 AM »

Also, yesterday was my first time doing LSATs in 4 days because I have a 3 midterms.

well that's why you can't concentrate.  even though you stepped away from the LSAT for a few days you've been studying for three midterms!  studying for midterms alone will burn a person out, i can't even imagine studying for midterms and the lsat at the same time. 

i think it's reasonable to take a practice test before your break, but after that it might be in your best interest go off and enjoy your spring break without studying.  relax a bit and you'll come back with a clear mind and ready to study some more.  you might be rusty for a day or two, but it's february and the test is in june.  you have plenty of time :)

Law School Admissions / Re: Economy and law school admissions -- tougher?

I'm thinking that people might consider the job market more seriously and find all those scholarships more tempting.

i'm sure a lot of people will jump down my throat for saying this, but i happen to agree with you.  the most job growth is expected to be in the public sector, and government jobs don't pay as well.  aside from the obvious benefit of having to take out fewer loans (if you can even get approved for a loan) when you take a scholarship from a decent school, you have the option of taking a public position without stressing over paying so much loan debt.  larger firms are being hit pretty hard by the economy.  clearly some graduates of certain schools will never have trouble finding a great job, there are fewer options and firms are definitely scaling back.

IMHO, i've always felt that going to a T14 school guarantees much better and higher paying job prospects but you are absolutely locked into those $140K jobs since you just took out that amount in loans.  however if that's the kind of job you want, then go for it.

Forgive me for asking this, but why exactly does it take so long for LSAT scores to be released?  I understand the Monday for Sabbath observers, and I get that maybe they'd need a week after that, but it's a scantron!  Can anyone shed some light on this?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Which was the experimental section?

I don't think that's true for all test forms. I had two RC and neither was the first section (I'm allowed to say that, right? I didn't say which section was which number)

me too.  thankfully i know which one was experimental since one RC was in the first three and the other was not.  i really screwed up my timing on the first RC, so i think i got pretty lucky!
