Personal Statement / Re: Abusive relationship off limits?
« on: May 31, 2012, 05:14:59 PM »
First off, why do you not want to seem like a victim.  When people abuse, they are the aggressor and you are the victim.  Are you concerned about appearing weak?  I'm not trying to condescend, I'm asking to understand.

Have you considered any LSAT study guides?  I dunno if that seems too obvious but I tend to think the best way to get over a hurdle is to use the right tools so to speak.

I think if you can describe "gone through" you may get more feedback.    ;D

General Off-Topic Board / Re: If I Did It

You can find it on Amazon.com (amongst other places I'm sure.)  It is called "If I Did It" and the "If" is buried inside the I and is very tiny. You can kinda see it in his picture in the first post. It's that grey smudge toward the top of the "I".  It's got 3.5/5 stars so maybe it's at least a good read.

Much of that depends on your personal learning style.  For me, I learn better in groups.  Discussion and interactivity help keep me focused.  If I'm left alone to just study and read, I tend to get distracted by shiny objects. :)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Sincere Inquiry from a Starter
« on: April 03, 2012, 12:02:32 PM »
I am entering college in 2012 fall and long to become a law school student for graduate school. I am planning to major in International Relations or Political Science in a women's college (admission results are coming out in March), such as Mount Holyoke, Smith or Bryn Mawr College.

I know it is definitely too early for me to do legitimate LSAT prep, but I want to know what type of course I should choose to benefit my college education in preparation for law school and the LSAT test? Or, anyone has good advice for starters?? Thanks!!

Getting back to the original post, a lot of people have suggested Econ for an undergrad, but the bottom line is, if you aren't interested in Economics and aren't very good at math, you may really struggle to keep your GPA up. This will inevitably make your college experience terrible. You want to be able to enjoy this time. If you've got a legitimate interest in another field and feel that you will do well and enjoy the classes, go that route. In the long run, the job market will get better. So don't stress about that either. Enjoy yourself in the present while you keep one eye on your future!

I agree with, Iching. But giving us the full question would help tremendously.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT prep books for sale

I have all the official books released by the Law School Admission Council for sale. All of the books are brand new, in perfect condition, and have never been read.


The Official LSAT SuperPrep

10 Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests

10 More Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests

The Next 10 Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests


The price for all of the books is $50.00. I live in the North Shore suburbs of Chicago. Just send me a message and you can either stop by to pick them up, or I can drop them off if you would like. I would also be willing to ship them.

I hope this means that you haven't given up on taking the test. Hopefully, you found you didn't need the materials after taking a practice test. Good luck to your Mavericks!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: my score has hit a plateau...what do I do?
« on: April 03, 2012, 11:49:04 AM »
some things that really really help: once in a while take untimed tests and see how you do. This will help you determine your actual best possible score. Also, when you are taking tests, mark each question that you think is really difficult and whether you get it right or not go back over them and see why you got them right or wrong.

I agree with the untimed test advice. This is the only way you can determine if your brain is not getting enough time to thoroughly process the information or if you truly don't have an accurate idea of what the questions are looking for. I think this may be a good step in your preparation. Good luck!
