Studying for the LSAT / Re: For those that have already taken an LSAT..

Awesome site, thanks! Where I'm taking mine is the highest ranked for the area. I laughed at the comments regarding the university I attend, though. "Cold", "too cold", "so cold." Yay, Rochester.

Huh, when I think of auditorium style seating I think of those foldable "desks" that don't have much space. That's my worry.

Studying for the LSAT / Sick - modify prep?

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!

The LSAT is a legal problem ;)

Tied my highest score.


Pregamed with 3 High Lifes and celebrated the end with the remaining 9 high lifes in my 12 pack.
I'm gonna get so crunk afterwards...

At this point I don't feel it as much anymore. I studied for months and shelled out the cash, so I'm taking it regardless. Worst thing I can do is go in there and have to take it twice. Despite my obvious aversion to that and desire to do well RIGHT NOW, it's ultimately not the end of my life if I have to postpone things. There's no point in panicking now because, outside of minor tweaks, there's not a whole heck of a lot you can do but have confidence in yourself and the amount of work you put into it. I mean, hey, you know that your highest score is at least do-able and within reach, even if it's not necessarily a given. [/guidance counselor]

So how's everyone doing?

I feel like I'm coming down with something today.

It may be the weather... at least I'm hoping it isn't viral.
Wow, you are like my Canadian half or something, because I had the beginnings of a sore throat last night and it's really hurting today. I don't feel 100% sick but worry it'll blow up into something bigger.

Same problem, here. I was scoring upper 160's and broke into 171, then ended up crashing to 159, 157, and 159 today. I was never great at logic games, but I went from 1 or 2 wrong in LR to ~6-8 wrong. I decided to take the night off, go to classes tomorrow, do some review (independent test sections, not a whole timed test) to try and isolate what my problem is if it's not stress. Hit the PTs again on Thursday.

That's my plan, anyways.

I've been spending about 20 hours a week in court for the past month & I talk to a TON of attorneys/DA's/judges, and, seriously, I've met like 1 or 2 from the T25. One of my regular questions to people I talk to is "what law school did you go to", and I've been nothing less than shocked at the number of low Tier 2's & Tier 3's I hear. That has relaxed me a little bit.
It's always comforting to hear that your future isn't completely doomed if you're not in that 170+ range, but Powerscore's LSAT-to-future-salary list is still a little intimidating :P

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How to go from a 147 to a 169

Thanks. Though, one last question, is it normal to do progressively better and then suddenly have a few bad tests? My practice tests went from 151, 157, 159, 161, 165, 165, 166, 167, 167, 168, 171 to 159 (this past Saturday) and 157 (today.) Like, literally on the nose went backwards. I'm fairly certain it's a mental block but I is it common to have a little pre-fog? How did folks get out of it?
