Studying for the LSAT / Re: Hold on LSAC Account
« on: December 23, 2006, 09:08:06 AM »
I had a hold on my file for the Oct LSAT b/c my fee waiver was still being reviewed.  It took a couple of days for them to take the hold off and when they did it took an additional 4 days for my score to go up online, BUT it was available through telescore before that, for a $10 fee!  $10 was worth it to avoid those anxious days!

I don't think you're nuts.  I did the same thing in Sept and I'm doing it again for the Dec test.  I don't have the most reliable car (ie, she only runs 20% of the time and when she's running she overheats if I try to drive more than 15 miles) and I didn't want the added stress of panicking b/c my car wouldn't get me to the test on time.  I picked a hotel that was walking distance from my test site (i also happen to work there so it's free for me ;-) ).  

I agree about finding out about sports teams/fraternity conventions/high school reunions going on in the hotel.  On your reservation specify that you need a quiet room, away from elevators, ice machines, stair wells, and NOT a connecting room (these rooms are soooo loud if there is someone in the adjoining room!).  Put comments in your reservation about why you need a special quiet room.  I work for a 4-star hotel and when we're blocking rooms we block rooms with specific requests first.  Also, when you check in, tell them again why you need a quiet room and ask nicely if there are any concierge floor rooms available, these floors are usually business travellers and least likely to have families with crying babies, plus you get the appetizers at night and breakfast in the morning!

Depending on the hotel, the bed in the room may be more comfortable than yours at home!  Starwood and Hyatt hotels have rolled out pillowtop beds in most of their hotels, and Marriott is following suit.  I love the Heavenly beds at the Westin!!

Studying for the LSAT / What were conditions at your test site?

Let's hear how good/bad they were!

I definitely lucked out this morning (I'm hoping all my luck wasn't used up before the test started though!).  I took my test at Eckerd College in St. Pete, FL and I have to say that it is probably the worst site, if you're unlucky!  There is an auditorium with about 200 OLD school desks that are so small that you can't even fit your test book on it NOT opened!  They were expecting above capacity for the test this morning so the first 20 people were taken into a small room with BIG desks, comfy chairs, and a lot of room between each person.  Even though it was 30 min before the test was supposed to start, I knew i couldn't sit outside anymore listening to people talk about how many PTs they'd taken and how much they learned from Kraplan so I went in!  Was one of the last people into the "good" room.  :-D.  If I decide to retake in Dec. I hope they use this room again!!

Demingh, I know exactly what you mean.  At work, any free second I have I pull out my LSAT stuff and do a few questions.  Everyone knows I'm totally stressin and they're all supporting me telling me that I'll do great, except one guy.  Everyday he asks if I'm still studying (well, DUH, I haven't taken the test yet!!) and then he proceeds to tell me that there's no point in studying, all I should really be doing is reading the newspaper and some political magazines, b/c he took the LSAT in the 80's and he never studied at all.  I want to slap him.  He makes me feel stupid that I'm not scoring a 180 yet and I actually ahve to study!  AGH!

I hate that the apps ask for information about our parents.  I have all the stuff for my mom, but all i have for my father is his name, dont' know his whereabouts, education, etc.  I've been asked more than once to provide add'l information proving that I have no relationship with my father.  Agh!!  What a pain!

PM it to me if you are still looking for readers.

I'll read it.  PM it to me :)
