LSATgirl...this was exactly the kind of information I was looking for: what is the LSAT point advantage for applying early. Thanks a bunch. I think based on this information I'm joining the cancel and retake in Dec support group.

I'm actually pretty undecieded what to do at this point. I was aiming for 170+ but, based on that amount of problems I guessed on in LG and RC and the amount I most likely missed in LR, I'm looking at least -14 which is more like 165. I know I can do better. My nevrves got the best of me.

I'm not sure if I should just wait and hope that I guessed pretty good or if I should just cancel and retake in Dec. Even if schools are now taking the highest score, I have a feeling that a lower score can still affect your chances. If I do retake, I plan on not doing anything until end of October/early Novemember and just hit the last 7-8 practice tests (maybe with some old hard games and RC as experiementals).

However, it appears I'm holding off on applying until Dec. I think it general, it's better to wait and apply with an LSAT 5+ points higher than earlier with the lower LSAT.

lonewolf...i thought at first that you were the only one that thought these games were tough. There is another thread somewhere where people were saying that these games were EASY. THat didn't make me feel comfortable. I haven't missed any on games the last 7 or 8 tests, and I ended up guessing four or five this time around. I'm hoping your theory that this is going to be a more relaxed scale bears out; it's my only hope for a decent score at this point.

I wouldn't change to much if I were you stradgirl. If you usually eat chocolate cake in the morning, I guess I would stick with that. If you don't eat that kind of stuff in the morning, you are better staying away. Pres_Bacca is right; its just going to cause you to crash and make you tired when you need to focus the most. Your best bet would be for some protien and a good complex carb like oatmeal or a whole wheat toast/bagle.

As for me, its egg whites, oatmeal and coffee just like every morning.

... you and your fruity cocktails, Liz

Cookie Monster hit it on the head; make sure you focus on how this "defining moment" affects you know. I also think, if you decided to go another direction, this would make a good diversity topic. I know I wasn't born in a foreign country, nor did I need to learn another language as a child.

Haha...ok Liz that works. Although, I should probably figure out what's in those drinks. I'm rather unsophsiticated when it comes to alcohol consumption.

Well, I've already modified it about 25 times, so I guess I could provide cocktail options. From my standpoint there is no need to mix fine whiskies in the problem with anything, but I see no reason to include something such as a Baybreeze. I could expand my horizons beyond what I would be inclined to drink (sans Amstel).

Maybe in version 2.0.

« on: September 28, 2006, 01:26:19 PM » too. Looking back I don't think so, but maybe. The first passage killed me. I think the reading wasn't that tough, but the questions themselves were, at least for me, at the time I took it.

All right, the difficulty of this game is pretty low (assuming I wrote the rules correctly, which is big if apparently), at least from what I think.

Now, I realized that I made yet another error in the rules. The second rule should read:

"Allroy does not have his first beer before his first whiskey."

As opposed to any beer before whiskey.

So, this joke/exercise has made me think that I should stick to solving the games (good at that) as oppposed to writing them (bad at that).
