Studying for the LSAT / Is this weird???
« on: June 04, 2006, 09:39:27 PM »
I took a Kaplan diagnostic(but not the course) in December and got a 154 now I take a Princeton Review and get a 147 after a little studying.  I think i might have rushed as I also did on the first test but this time it was worst.  I dont think it is all the concepts but the time for LR that freaked me out.  It was Preptest 43 and it seemed way different from earlier Preptests. I was dissapointed with a 154 but a 147 I'm about to throw away that Kaplan book I bought.

I was looking there for undergrad. Also im a black male. They recruited me for basketball and i did an overnight and it was terrible.  I only saw like 4 black people there, and i really looked for them too.  Every1 seemed like so rich and preppy.  Than i went to a couple of frat parties which was good cause the girls there were really good to me.  Honestly i was just scared,the people in town when they walked by me would act as if i was a criminal.  Then at the parties i went to the keep acting like it was a big deal i was black, it came up numerous times.  I am also the type of guy who speaks his mind and lexington scared me because it is so rural and i felt if i said the wrong thing i could end up strung up on a tree.

yeah sounds about the kind of excited about it though-im looking at it as a challenge. I really wanna see if i can break 170. And with hard work and dedication i think its possible.

I have read it isn't the best test prep. But i think the structure and set test times will greatly help me, and it is the only one that fits my scheduale as i plan on going to Italy for basketball for two weeks late august.  Is Princeton Review that bad???? Or does it all depend on instructor and the such.... I took the diagonostic for Kaplan totally cold and only got a 155 which isn't good considering my 2.85 gpa, also a urm. I want to get my score in the upper 160's so i can at least attempt to get into a good law school.
