...I have a friend who is working as a patent agent right now.  I have no idea how you pass that exam without any background in law (he was a science nerd like me).

I'm also the science type.  The exam questions don't seem so difficult, though; they don't seem to require real knowledge of the law.  Just knowledge of the Patent rules.

What's the work like as a patent agent?  I had never considered that, but I guess it makes sense - just pass the test and you are one.

Come on - you've had a week to recuperate!  Only 14 months until 1L!!

Only two T1 (and 1 T14) programs? And a bunch of T4? It just seems like a very random listing.

That's actually exactly what I would expect.

Cornell has a whole pallette of cool-sounding programs.  For one, you must be fluent in French to apply, and then you spend a year in Pairs.  You get some kind of double degree.  Also a German variant.

Obviously you have to do what's right for you but if I'd been consistently missing only about two questions on practice tests and I suspected that I'd missed 17(!) on the real thing, I would cancel.  No question.

Hmm!  Interesting.  Yeah - I was really thinking about it.  I did mean 2 per section, by the way - so that's 8 or 9 misses compared to possibly 17 on the June test.

But now I'm holding off on canceling: 

1) I actually relatively good about my performance.  I mean, I made one dumb mistake that cost me 3 on LG, but besides that, I believe the test accurately tested me.  I ask myself - what would I change?  Well, I'd work on my pacing.  But aside from that, not too much.

2) Now there's the new ABA rule wrt the highest score.

So, taking those two together, I've decided to "let it ride" and see what I get.  I'm guessing that a lot of others are doing that too.

Yep.  I also agree about the Princeton Review.  IMO, their rankings give much more info about the "feel" of a law school.  They have a lot of useful info online - these rankings, place feedback from students.  And they do appear to provide both the positive and negative feedback.  For example:

26 had a motherload of parralel questions... ESPECIALLY on the last two pages. Those bastards.

That actually sounds like a good thing.  I think I remember that, too.  I ran out of time on the last few questions, like I'm sure a lot of people did.  So, this is the way I'd prefer to have it - the hardest questions at the end.

"In law school, having feelings is seen as a weakness..."

"You got pwned!"

I know!  It's pretty funny.
