Studying for the LSAT / Maryland Test Centers
« on: February 01, 2012, 01:11:01 PM »
What are the best test centers in Maryland for the June LSAT?  I can't seem to find the Kaplan test rater site online anymore.  Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!

Is it too late to postpone my test with LSAC?

Thanks tortNretort, 

The 2 - 2 1/2 hrs was an estimate but it makes me realize I might be over thinking some of the answers.  I don't have a problem identifying the questions, it just takes me a long time to pick an answer. 

Your categories are very helpful, esp. last one.  : ) 

I have all 50 plus insane tests, so I will intensify my efforts.  Man, this test is all work and no play.  ;)  Yeah, I will have to work on all the tests.  Honestly, the more I study, the more it races in my mind and can't sleep. 

The one thing that still nags me are the flaw questions.  It's difficult to see where to go and how to approach them. 

Again, thanks for your honest reply!

I appreciate your reply, tcwhat.  However, I disagree with you about my LSAT aspriations.  : )  Thanks anyway. :)

I just started this method, so maybe it's all new to me, but I do go over each question wrong and try to understand what happened.  It seems I have difficulty with flaw questions and assumptions. 

What is the real benefit to working each section untimed?  If this is not working for me, should I try another approach? 

Anyone else have advice on this?

I've worked with PR and PowerScore, a while ago.  The process if staight forward, I think.  I just make sure I get through every question and it usually takes me a total of 2 or 2 1/2 hrs.  Afterwards, I mark what is correct or not, then review each question.  After all of that I fight the urge to get a glass of wine.... ???

Any ideas?  Comfort?  Scolding?

I've been working on the LR sections and seem to be getting worse.  I started to do section by section untimed but my scores rarely change, timed or untimed.  Does anyone have any advice, I've seem to hit a wall.   :-\

Yes, having a child in law school is possible.

Just remember one thing, nothing can prepare you for "parent's guilt.."  You can never do enough to feel like an adequate parent and if you toss that in to the equation going to law school just makes matters worse.

On the other hand, I have read about a few schools that are conducive to those wanting children.  Hey, if you want it badly enough you'll find a way to achieve all your dreams.

What really helps is having extended family around.  Trusting on just you and your spouse .... well, the two of you will need your rest.   ;)
