I finally managed to pump out a bit of a PS. I'd be interested in having others read it. I'm willing to PM, or if it'd be easier to just post it here. Give me a shout if you're interested, I'd be very grateful!

Studying for the LSAT / LR - diagramming conditionals
« on: September 30, 2008, 06:45:51 PM »
So I've gone through the LR Bible and the chapter involving diagramming conditionals many times. I'm flat out not good at it and seem to be at an impasse. I could easily save myself a good two or three questions on the LR section if I get things to click.

I realize this is incredibly vague, but anybody have any tips/advice that wasn't in the LR Bible? The things I do wrong are all over the place depending on the question.

Studying for the LSAT / Sick - modify prep?
« on: September 30, 2008, 05:34:05 AM »
Hey all,

I'm definitely under the weather at the moment. My original plan was to take two practice tests this week - Tuesday (today) and Thursday - but now that I'm sick (and exhausted as a result) I'm wondering if I should tweek this a bit. I am pretty sure I'll take the PT simply to get it done and go to bed (I work 8:30-5), risking a bad score before the actual LSAT that might not otherwise be an accurate read but would still undermine the confidence/work I've put in so far.

Right now, I've taken multiple PTs and feel ready to attack the LSAT from a stamina perspective. My two concerns are 1) Get better (don't want to be sick on test day); and 2) stay nimble. Perhaps it would be wiser to do a timed section or two and review the Bibles as opposed to a full on PT today? I'm taking a PT Thursday, regardless.

Feedback is appreciated, thanks!

Studying for the LSAT / Studying without the experimental section?
« on: September 21, 2008, 11:19:54 PM »
Hey all,

I've been taking practice tests fairly regularly, using the "10 Actual, Official LSAT Preptest" books. The thing is, they don't supply the experimental section so, excluding the writing section, I'm only prepping with four sections. 1) Do you think that this will adversely affect my performance on the test day with a fifth section (because of endurance issues); and 2) is there any way to mimic that fifth section? Should I just find a random LSAT section to take alongside the actual preptest just to get used to it?

Thanks again.

Law School Admissions / Honors program?

As far as applying to law school is concerned, is it worth taking on an honors program? That is, is the work I'll put into it worth it relative to how much more competitive it'll make me?
