Now that you have more time ...

Work on understanding and accuracy first. Give yourself all the time you need to completely understand each type of question. Once they make sense, start cutting back on the time you allow yourself. I did quarters at a time at first (in other words, one game at a time, allowing 8 mins and 45 seconds, or one reading comp passage at a time), then moved to doing whole sections. I took whole tests one the weekends so I wouln't loose a feeling for what the real test actually felt like.

Think of it as a marathon. You will get better a little at a time, but you've gotta keep training the whole time!

Maybe you haven't hit on the stuff in class yet that you are having the most trouble with.

If you had asked earlier, I would have told you not to take the Kaplan class. A month really isn't that long yet - so keep practicing! And if you're not ready by test time, by all means WAIT till October!!

Will you always be working such long days?

I like micheladas as well, yum!

My mother likes her beer in a frosty mug with salt on the rim - half beer half orange juice! LOL...

If you dont want a margarita (yum!) or they don't have sangria, have a Negra Modelo (beer)!

YECK!  >:(

Hee hee ... you should try it, it's quite delish!

I suggest buying the book Guerilla Tactics for Getting the Legal Job of Your Dreams ... Regardless of your grades, your school, or your work experience! by Kimm Alayne Walton. Chapter 10 is titled "Help! My Grades Stink!"

The whole book is worth a read, but that chapter in particular might help you feel better about going on.

Good luck!

Indeed, what you describe is much more what I expect from a resume as well. Pictures are not required, but it is quite common, which is something I've always considered a bit "too much".

Unless you're a hot chick being interviewed by a bunch of men :D :D

Queen Cruella - I realize -now- that there are vast differences! Hee hee ...I guess my mother has been right all these years to harass me about my handwriting. I've always WANTED to write like a middle school english teacher (you remember the kind, right? Looks like they were the ones to WRITE those handwriting books back in kindergarden), it's just never quite worked out. I gave up trying when I learned how to type. :)

TO be quite honest, one of the big reasons I left my public school district and vowed never to set foot in a classroom there again was that they were still doing handwriting exercises for cursive in 6th grade. Meanwhile my state is tearing up the bottom of the charts in other areas like reading and math. Hmm--- see any problem here? Shouldn't kids be learning penmanship until around 3-4th grade anyway?

Oh YES! Penmanship should be learned waaaay before middle school. I can't believe that school was still doing handwriting exercises in 6th grade. They had use learning to type then ;) lol. I just meant that middle school english teachers have pretty handwriting THEMSELVES. I dont know why, but they all seem to have that pretty, fluid, perfect style.

I like hot chicks, good point indeed :) Your picture (assuming the avatar is you) would improve any resume in my eyes ;)

Haha thanks. It is indeed me at a flustered moment. I think including that particular picture might not do so well unless I was applying for a gig as the company comedienne!

Darn. I saw this thread growing and thought people were still actually being admitted.

Carry on. :P
