Law School Admissions / The Story of a Dismissed Law Student...
« on: October 04, 2006, 07:52:13 PM »

Tonight I came across a link to "The Story of a Dismissed Law Student" buried deep on a page of other articles to help you get through law school.  At first I figured it would be some amusing tale of a guy who drinks too much and skips class, basically someone who didn't think law school would be "that hard".  I start reading, and it's actually kind of sad.  Granted, I didn't read his whole journal, so there might be some strange twist, but he's your basic guy who tries to balance work, family, and a PT law program, only to realize that if one of the first two fail, you'll inevitably fail at the third.

Kinda keeps things slightly in perspective as we all fret over these next few weeks and months.

Anyone here going to UT Law Day this week?

Studying for the LSAT / Crazy things you saw/heard today...

overhead before test began...

Guy:  So how long does this usually last?
Girl:  Well, it's 5 sections of 35 minutes each.
Guy:  Really.  That's long.

Do you think he even read the LSAT registration book!?!?!

Then there's the character who held us up on the certifying statement. It took him an ADDITIONAL 5 minutes longer than everyone else to write it out.  I can only wonder what his writing sample was like.

Studying for the LSAT / Noises during the LSAT...

A few days ago people got all up in a roar because of someone asking if they could bring a watch that quietly beeped when he pressed start. 

To all of you LSDers who basically threatened his life over a tiny beep, I would like you to know that I will not be using any sort of beeping devices.  I have a perfectly silent timer. 


I will be eating chili for dinner tonight and leftover chili for breakfast tomorrow.  Oh and my break-time snack will be some hardboiled eggs.  I hope the sound of my colon ripping open doesn't bother you too much.   :-*

Studying for the LSAT / #50 - RC topics -- what do you want to see?
« on: September 28, 2006, 04:59:29 PM »
Assuming you're using LSD to fill your time instead of last minute cramming...what sort of RC topics do you want to see Saturday?

Since I took way to many years of Latin in HS and liked the women doctors passage in #49, I'll say another piece on Roman or Greek cultures -- kudos for a piece on mythology.

I'll also take a piece on UFO's.  That would be interesting, especially if they talk about people who claim to be abducted.

For my science piece, let's go for something about bio/chemical warfare, infectious diseases, etc.  It's the closest science area that I have the most experience & interest in.

Hm...and #4...I'll go with a piece on steriod use in sports. 

History, triva, science, and sports -- well-rounded enough for a trivial pursuit game.

Law School Admissions / Class of 2010 - Ponder this...
« on: September 27, 2006, 03:14:28 PM »
I just met a girl today who's interested in going to law school next fall, and graduating in 2010.  Great!  Just like me.  I start asking her about the LSAT, and she goes on to tell me that she's not worried about it because she's more concerned with finishing up her Bachelor's first.  Um...ok.  Continuing on...I go on to tell her about this program can be stressful at times, but LSAT stressful -- anyone can get a 180 with enough time, same thing with some of the situations we have.  She then goes on to say how she'll do great both in the training program and on the LSAT (that she hasn't started studying for) because she is such a logical thinker.  She then tries to explain an LG to me, and how that proves she's a great thinker.  I don't think it ever sunk in though that I've actually been studying for the LSAT and taking them in 3 days.

Law School Admissions / Resume Format -- looking for affirmation here!
« on: September 01, 2006, 05:51:01 AM »
I'm looking over Anna Ivey's examples, and I definitely grasp the concepts of pulling out highlights from minor situations, use less words to express more, etc.  However, I just don't like the visual setup of her resumes.  I've gone through plenty of resume writing workshops over the past year, and am leaning towards using another format -- still tying in WE and soft factors. 

Anyone else using a different format?

Studying for the LSAT / Partial Credit
« on: August 18, 2006, 09:56:23 AM »
Oh how I wish the LSAT gave partial credit.  I just took a prep test and BOMBED one LR section (50% wrong, other LR was ok), but all of those 50% were answers that could be classifed as "runner up" or "second best".  If only I could get half a point for picking the 'almost right answer'.  :::sigh:::

Ok, I'm putting the crack pipe down.  And now back to reality.
