Studying for the LSAT / Re: How long did you study for LSAT?

What did you even study for 600 hours? There are only so many available test questions 5000+ or so. 

Debriefing tests is more important than just racing through them and repeating same mistakes.

There is also a high number of immigrants in California so, I also think that people that haven't totally mastered the English language would have a hard time with the LSAT.  So many of them don't even consider a career as a lawyer. 

That's too bad since so many of them have so much experience in international law. Sprinting across the border that is.

Do they check to see if transcript really came from your school or is return address good enough?

Studying for the LSAT / How much is diversity worth to schools?

US schools talk about valuing diversity of the student body. Is it mostly for PR or will it really add some points to a good story-teller?

What I have to sell is a history of fighting poverty while growing up in a closed city of a totalitarian country, suffering a severe personal injury caused by a hate crime against me. Large portions of the epic will be supported by great references from professors.

My undergraduate degree is in law (possible in my country) with a GPA of 4.0. English is not my 1st or 2nd language that's why I don't hope to score as high on LSAT as some of you guys.

If my LSAT score is slightly lower (let's say 160) than median at the school to which I'll apply (163), will being a minority make up for some of it? How much are personal statements and references worth against LSAT scores?

Thank you very much!

5 months of study...4-8 hours per day...no kidding!

So that's over 600 hours. How did your score improve?

Is it possible to draw on reverse sides of test pages? Are they blank?

Scratch paper is not allowed on Logic Games section either? How do you manage to solve these games w/o diagraming?

After receiving a horryfying 147 on my practice test I signed up for Testmasters and decided to invest another 100-150 hours in addition to the class time.  Do you think it should be enough to bump my score up to 165+? English is my 3rd language, so it takes me a bit longer than a native speaker.

How many hours did you put into preparation and how did it change your score?
