Unless Jeffort can accurately attest to someone who has been studying for 2 years vs. someone who studies, lets say, a few months, then compare and constrast the individual performance on a test, then he has as much merit as I do on the subject of how long to study. If one studies a head of time then he/she maps out what their weaker areas are and can improve upon them, thus they have more time to work on weak areas, make their stronger areas even better, and study more for the LSAT.

Him tutoring a bunch of children is an irrelevant point as I am merely suggesting study tips. People are different, thus they have different temperaments, etc.., Jeffort saying "you will burn out" is an unfounded statement and his personal opinion on the matter. The OP may not burn out and from what he is saying, I can more accurately assume he won't, than Jeffort can assume he will.

I like that you find life similar to a game. In the essence of playing games, you are now 0-2. ;)

Don't listen to Jeffort.

I have also been studying for the LSAT for two years now. By studying this long, I have not become "burnt out" nor have I declined. I sparse my prep-tests out until new editions arrive and then I buy those to take more prep tests. For over a month now I consecutively score in the high 170s, and I even intentionally answer some questions wrong as I don't want a perfect score (a quirk and funny joke of mine about the paradox of perfection). But, to say the least, the test has become second nature to me. When looking at the different types of logic games, I know how to map them and solve them easily. The logical reasoning portion seems like kid work to me now. The practice tests have become easy for me to pass now and I feel that the test may be just as easy due to some practice tests being actual questions from the real test.

In any case, I may just score in the high 170s if I keep my pace of tackling each test as if it were my last. That doesn't take away my notion of them being easy for me now.

T3 and T4 does not matter, but T4-T2-T1 does matter. Going to a T1 or T2 would be more beneficial to a person career wise.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Is Cooley Law School That Bad?

Largest Lawschool in the nation, largest library and better than most T-1s just view the Rateings section on their page to see for yourself.  ;)   

Largest student body because the school accepts just about anyone. Largest library because of the amount of students it accepts, it generates large sums of money. Better than most T-1s due to them ranking themselves. Lmfao, you Cooley students are just delusional.

I am rarely using the internet and when I do use it, I am doing work and on this forum. I just take intermittent breaks between work and this site. I then check my portfolios and track the markets. So, I am b.sing a 3rd of my time.

Affirmative Action / Re: Why Affirmative Action is Justified

I see bigs viewpoint and agree with it. MY friend who is black got a 165 on her LSAT and GPA was 3.7. I just believe their are minorities who can handle pressure and those who cannot. Just like white people.

Don't worry, we won't be going to the same law school.

 You'd be amazed how a jump in intellect would have served you if it weren't for your television and all of its b.s. propagating your mind with a bunch of inane nonsense. Think about it, you are basically watching a box in color with humans interacting with other humans playing dress up. That couldn't be more stupid than it already is. Why the hell watch 3 to more humans play fairy tale land in costumes? It is STUPID. I'd rather read Dostoevsky and listen to Mahler.

1L job search / Re: T4 with intern

If you got a 155 on a logical reasoning test, then no, you would not ace every single class in physics at Carleton unless you understood the concepts. I understand the philosophical concepts of law, therefore would ace classes at the top schools of law. You do not have a great scientific background, and from what I am assuming, you aren't good at math, so you will probably do well in the very basics of biology, whereas the advanced courses in science, you would perform less that average.

I know for a fact some students at Harvard did nothing close to what I have done and merely got good grades and a great score on the LSAT. They still got in with just that. I am doing the things I have listed because I have many interests and wish to apply them all to the law. It also differentiates me from other students. I couldn't care less about what you have accomplished.

At least I had parents who weren't constantly on drugs...
