Studying for the LSAT / Are timers necessary?
« on: April 20, 2006, 01:05:00 PM »
Hey, I'm just starting to study for the October LSAT and I've seen a lot of talk about timers. I'm currently the owner of a watch with a stopwatch and have been using that to time myself on practice tests. On test day, my plan, right now, is to start the stopwatch when the proctor says that I can begin the test, and use that to see how much time I have left. I see a lot of talk on the boards about buying these silent timers, and I was wondering:

a) how helpful they are during test time
b) would their helpfulness warrant me spending the $30 on it as opposed to just sticking with my watch

so basically, "does my method suck?" is the real question.

i am so in love with YLS. you cant even imagine. i went to Yale last summer to take a course and i fell in love with the university. i dont want to go there because it's #1, i want to go there because i feel like i belong there. the people are wonderful. and a great change of pace from superficial and artificial Los Angeles people. yuck.

I'm currently a film student at USC (so I really get around that "LA" mentality) and a midwestern girl at heart. What you said about the LA mindset is part of the reason I'm so gung ho about going back to the midwest for law school (especially U Chicago). I love Los Angeles as a city (weather, how there's so much to do, etc.), but I wish people weren't so obsessed about how they look, how others look, and what kind purse/shoes/sidekick/etc. everyone owns, to the point where it's considered unfashionable to swim in the ocean when you're at the beach (bc seriously, if I wanted to tan, I would have sat outside, not sat in 45 minutes of traffic and paid 15 dollars for parking).

My dream school is UChicago. I'm applying there ED. Hopefully I can pull off a killer LSAT score to offset my 3.6 GPA (probably puny compared to many other applicants).

I'm currently a Trojan (undergrad, but pre-law). If any of you are looking for housing, I'll have an open room in my apartment bc both my roommates are graduating next year. I'm a non-smoker, I'm fairly clean, I don't throw wild parties or anything, and the building is one of the more reasonably priced for the area (and the apt is in good condition). e-mail me if you're interested: pfeldman@usc.edu

and Fight On!!
