Studying for the LSAT / Re: How to deal with... parents.
« on: September 23, 2008, 12:04:39 AM »
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

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?

Man, I wish I could devote eight hours a day to studying. It would sure beat devoting those eight hours to an actual job (no joke.)

I've performed well on my practice tests so far (taking it on October 4th - have been studying consistently since may and on and off prior to that), but I certainly hope I'm not at a terrible disadvantage because I couldn't devote every waking hour to preparation.

This isn't a criticism of your advice. I'm simply wondering if anyone else was in a similar position and still managed to perform well (let's say, 165+)?

Studying for the LSAT / Studying without the experimental section?
« on: September 22, 2008, 12:19:54 AM »
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?
