Studying for the LSAT / Re: 5 Days until September Test Day!

On another note. What do you guys think of resetting my wristwatch for every section?
Anyone else do this? Anyone choose not to do it? If so, why?

This is my plan.

And in other advice, relax. Breathe. In, Out. The test is the test. You can't do anything but take it and give it your best effort.

Law School Admissions / Re: Do second semester grades matter?

yes, they'll ask for transcript updates. scholarships may be conditioned on your GPA and some schools may rescind acceptance / kick you out based on low GPAs too.

Law School Admissions / Re: When Taking a Year Off is NOT Beneficial
« on: September 21, 2009, 06:50:24 PM »
You answered your own question. If it's NOT beneficial - to your applications - then don't do it. This will answer itself if you ask "will it benefit me?" Because if you can answer yes to that, you can explain that to law schools and then, in turn, it becomes beneficial.

I was scared of taking a year off and screwed myself by not. Long story short, I ended up taking 3 years off in the interim and have "grown up" a great deal since then. I'm turning that concept - and all of the little achievements and stories that come with that - into my Personal Statement.

A year off can do wonders for someone's maturity and real world knowledge. That said, you may be very stable and mature right now. Only you know where you're at in your head and life. Answer those questions and you'll have to your answer.

Law School Admissions / Mail Call: What are they thinking?

Got a postcard from Penn State today...

with their football schedule.

Now, I don't know about you, but a football team is going to be the last thing to persuade me to attend a law school.

(That said, I REALLY hope I get into the University of Washington because I dearly miss sitting in the student section during games...and after the USC upset, the idea is sounding very sweet.)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: The LSAT Breakfast of Champions?

My job requires 6-7 hours without appropriate nutrition, and I rely on Luna bars to get me through the first half of my days - that and a soy mocha. This has translated well into studying for the LSAT - i feel very alert - so my plan is that with a multivitamin, plus another luna bar with a little water at break.

guy gets really scared or girl starts freaking out wanting to shop for baby clothes ---> girl wants guy to buy an EPT ---> girl needs said hygiene product ---> Girls monthly mail man skips a visit ---> guy is very relieved

Only you guys could turn a discussion of my period into something LSAT related. And here I was, afraid my tampons were going to scare you. Little did I know the men in the room would think, logically, "oh, good, shes NOT pregnant!"

wallet, hygiene and medical products are allowed....I've discovered "they" will fit in my glasses case with my back-up glasses.

and Thales. 3.5 isn't my fear. It's waiting another 2-3 hours that could potentially cause a crisis (considering I'll be leaving my house no later than 7 a.m.).

Studying for the LSAT / my plastic bag

1. should I hit the back-to-school aisle and find the cheesiest, most ridiculous Disney-star ladden pencils I can find (I'm thinking a combo pack of Hannah Montana and Jonas Brothers)...

...or stick with yellow #2?

2. has anyone had success bringing a nalgene bottle into the testing room?

3. and maybe this would work in my favor, but I don't want to scare any men in the room, and I'll be so unlucky as to require hygeine products in my (clear) plastic bag on testing day (as if I could have planned that better, I know.). this is actually really bothering me, and I can't think of a solution.
