Studying for the LSAT / Re: New to the Forum: June LSAT taker

I just bought a cheap digital stopwatch and disabled the speaker.  It's easy to do:  It looks like tiny spool of thread.  Just pull off one end and the wire coil.

If you want other options, I know this topic has been discussed recently on this board.  You may want to scan through the earlier threads on this board, or do a search for timer.

Back in the dark ages when I didn't know what the abbreviations meant  ::), I found them pretty easily on Google.

I admit, I didn't think of Googling these terms.  An interesting idea... And guess which site leads the results of a Google search for TITCR: LSD terms defined

I guess they're good for something after all.  ;)

;D. Exactly.  You are closer to learning the meaning than you realize. 

Oh I get it.  BAFF was coined after this guy instead of the other way around.  Now if at some point I actually find out what it means I'm afraid that will mean I'm spending too much time on LSD.   :P

On the Dec 05 LSAT I actually thought the fourth game (rock/folk bands) was the hardest of the group.  Were you satisfied with your setup on the repairperson game?  I thought this game was pretty easy with a good diagram.

I got the letter today too, also didn't get a complete notice (and I applied December 22nd).  Good stuff.

Congrats JPhilmore!  From the looks of your LSN I'm sure you'll have a few more coming your way.

Just to scare us all a bit:

Dear Applicant,

   We were very impressed with your application as a whole.  Your LSAT score and undergraduate GPA were commendable; your personal statement was insightful, displaying exceptional depth and maturity; and your recommenders were convincing in their portrayal of you as a most unusual candidate, in whom the intellectual breadth of Bertrand Russell combines with the humanitarian values of Mother Teresa.

   As is our custom, we have cross-referenced your profiles on LSN and LSD.  Unfortunately, due to your significant and growing habit of contributing useless posts on these sites, we regret that we must deny you admission.  We are certain that we correctly matched you to your online identity, as you are the only one-armed applicant this year who is partnering with Peruvian NGOs to develop the internet market for alpaca wool.

   Enclosed is an list of addiction counseling centers in your area.  Please seek help.

Hm. Something I did was to make a thermos of hot tea whenever I sat down to take a preptest.  I guess I equate drinking tea w/relaxation, coziness, etc.  I brought my thermos of tea in to the testing center.  A la Pavlov I think it helped me get in the LSAT mindframe.

When I missed LR questions in my preptests it was b/c I was reading too fast and misinterpreted either the stimulus or one of the answers.  You think this is what you're doing?

Personal Statement / Re: Opening paragraph too bland?

That's great!  Your revised intro is much more compelling.  You come across right away as a person who is interesting, engaged in your activities, and grateful for your experiences.
