Law School Admissions / I WANT TO DIE.......
« on: September 09, 2004, 11:41:20 PM »
.....OK Not really, but this LSAT thing is getting me really down and depressed. I keep getting quips about how learnable the test is and how I can learn from the mistakes, but the only thing I am "learning" is that my answers ARE mistakes. Is there going to be some "spiritual enlightenment type moment" where every question will make sense? I look over each question and see why its correct but I don't see why my answer is incorrect. I know that there is more to life than law school, but it is something I want to do and I am hating the fact that ONE stinken test is keeping me from a quality job. Why is everyone here making leaps and bounds on their scores or claiming that "if they had a couple of straight months time, they could hit a 180" and I am stuck in this "black hole" of 150 (or worse). Ugh, I sucked on the SAT and ACT but did well in college and people keep telling me I have the qualities of a good lawyer (I would also like to think that I have a good personality but thats a different issue), but these people keep thinking that the LSAT should be a no brainer for me. And what sucks even worse is when I am in my Princeton Review class and the teacher tells us what we SHOULD have gotten (or in layman's terms: where only a stupid idiot would pick something else) and I choose a different answer than everyone else in the room. It's like this whole test (except games, for some God only knows reason, I am actually better in this section) is in a different foreign language. OK, well this concludes my "2:30 AM LSAT rant," I'm going to go to bed before I go try looking for a bridge and seek out a "It's a Wonderful Life" Christmas special moment. Please continue with your "I suck because I made a 170 LSAT and received one fee waiver from W&L" comments and the belittling comments against the Cooleys and other unworthy schools of law (or my future law school, as I so often like to refer to). I am going to continue practicing and re-examing each test and just pray because there is no way that I am going to get anything higher than a 150 in October at this rate.

First off, thanks to all those who read and critiqued my PS last time. I have since revised it and would like feedback on the new version. No worries, its down from 1300 words to under 700 words, so its a quick read. Just want to see if it gets the same impact as before and seeing if it "flows." Thanks in advance. When you post your email, tell me if you prefer if I send it as an attachment (word document) or if I should just paste it in the body.

Law School Admissions / Speed typing
« on: September 05, 2004, 07:48:51 PM »
Not sure if there has been a thread regarding typing speed but I wanted to know if there is a program out there that y'all can recommend. I know people say that you should just practice with chat rooms, but I can never get an interesting convo going that would require much typing.

I finally got my PS down from 1300 words to 600 words. Not perfect though, still kinda jumps to different points but is still coherent. Gotta keep working to get that "natural flow of ideas."

Studying for the LSAT / Concentration on the LSAT
« on: August 29, 2004, 03:06:47 PM »
I just wanted to know if anyone out there has problems focusing on the LSAT; the Reading Comp section in particular. I don't think I have A.D.D or A.D.H.D but I might have to read a sentence three times before I get the general idea. I was wondering if any of y'all take something before the LSAT (other than Aderol). I was thinking of the coffee/caffine route, but milk does a wierd number on me and caffine will sometimes induce a headache. Has anyone taken Gensing or some organic stuff that works (for not only the LSAT but in general)? I'm hoping I can get out of this "scoring rutt."

Studying for the LSAT / EYEQ Help

Law School Admissions / Speed Reading
« on: August 25, 2004, 12:56:42 PM »
I know its too late to get a software program, book, or take a class to teach speed reading before the Oct LSAT, but I wanted to know if anyone on here has taken a class or know of a good program. My business law professor said that any program or class teaching speed reading is a MUST for law school. I am reading a few novels on my own, but I think I am going to need to take a specified program. Please suggest something and if you have taken something, divulge into what you thought of the program.

Law School Admissions / Tinky Winky vs. the State of Virginia

Check out Falwell's new law school:

I don't think Tinky Winky and La La are going to be having a marrage any time soon  ;)

Law School Admissions / Rejected 15 times, what's 15 more, right?
« on: August 22, 2004, 04:08:02 PM »
OK, I was trying to start this year's application cycle by not being stressed out but I think I just hit that point. I did crappy on my first real LSAT so I am taking the Princeton Review right now. I just took the first diagnostic test and I scored LOWER than I did last year! WTF! Apparently the rest of my application is good because I was waitlisted at 2 schools, but the damn LSAT is keeping me from law school. Hope everyone else is having better luck.....

Law School Admissions / Do I still qualify for fee waivers?
« on: August 21, 2004, 01:04:07 PM »
I still dont know if I will get any this year. I applied last year and was only waitlisted, so I am reapplying this year. I called LSAC and asked them if I have to "renew" my CRS or LSAC info and they said "no, since I registered for the Oct LSAT." Is anyone out there in a similar situation?
