Studying for the LSAT / Re: June 2011 Thread
« on: November 27, 2010, 08:31:33 AM »
I'm also starting to study for the June 2011 test. I took the September 2009 exam after studying for about 3 months, during which time I was also recovering from a spine fusion, and I didn't do as well as I wanted. This time around I'm healthy and giving myself plenty of time to study.

Whoa! I was considering getting spinal fusion for my L4-L5 region but decided against it because I didn't want to miss out on the December test. Now that I'm postponing to June, I'm re-considering it. Might do lots of back exercises instead and hope the problem goes away by itself.

How did you do in Sept 09 and what's your score range at the moment? Also, how did you bust up your spine?

Good luck!


153 in Sept 09. Wasn't happy at all. I thought about retaking the exam this year, but had some other life changes going on this year and moved to Boston from Western NY. I haven't started studying yet, I just received a stack of test prep materials in the mail this past week and I'm coming up with my study plan today while I'm home for the holiday. I return to Boston tomorrow and I'll start studying on Monday.

No idea how I messed up my spine. I played sports throughout high school and always had back pain. After high school I spent some time in the Marines and Marine ROTC and it was during undergrad that I had my first surgery on L4 and L5. Lost my ROTC scholarship to medical disqualification. The problem returned and I had the fusion last year. I feel great now, I have rough days where it aches pretty bad, but I'm satisfied with the outcome of the second surgery.

How many months did you study BikePilot? I'm home for the holiday but returning to Boston tomorrow, so today I'm coming up with my study plan to start hitting the books Monday. I work 6 days a week (half-day Saturdays) and M-F I'm commuting and working between 7am and 7pm.

I'd be glad to take a look. I've only written a little over a page so far, but I'd be glad for some cc as well.

Personal Statement / feedback on ps

I've written a little over a page with one of my ideas. It's not the PS I would use for every school. Just not sure if I'm heading in the right direction with it. Anyone want to look it over?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Just got my score.. Looking for advice

I scored a 153. That was after about 6 weeks of prep time while working full-time and overtime. The only prep materials I used were the PowerScore Logical Reasoning Bible and the LSAC Superprep. Would it be reasonable for me to break 160 on the February test with more prep time and materials? I only did about 2 or 3 timed practice tests prior to the September 09 test. I have a book of 10 practice tests that I didn't even get to because I ran out of time. I don't think I have enough time to prep by December.
