Studying for the LSAT / predict your reactions on friday...
« on: December 18, 2007, 11:42:06 AM »
what will be the first thing you do if your score is...



Bad: Feel my heart sink.  Tell myself, "f***kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk" over and over again.  Tell my family the bad news.  Then drown my sorrows in an all-night boozefest.

Good: I will be totally shocked, scream shouts of relief and happiness, and be grateful I never have to take a preptest ever again. Tell my family the good news.  Then celebrate with an all-night booze fest.

Studying for the LSAT / the cancellation verdict...
« on: December 07, 2007, 02:24:42 PM »
I am officially ON for the December 1st LSAT Score Waiting Game.  ;D

My rationalization: I realized that either way, I'm only giving myself 1 more shot to take the test (I ruled out a cancel-score-score) and nail my target score. I also realized that I would rather have a mediocre score than a "cancel" as my first shot. Anyway, I know I'm going to kick ass on the test next time so I might as well just see how I did with this one and learn from it.

I sure am glad I can't back out now.  It definitely feels MUCH better to NOT have a choice!!  Now, if only I could figure out how to keep from going crazy the next few weeks...

Studying for the LSAT / i miss you LSAT. too soon to get started again?
« on: December 05, 2007, 04:49:58 PM »
it's been a few days since I saw the LSAT, and I think I'm actually ready to get back to studying again.  Is this a bad idea?  Retakers: when is the recommendation for starting up again after taking the 1st time?  It's not like I'd be forcing myself against my own will - I actually enjoy studying for the LSAT. I just want to get something in return.  :-\

after all this b****-ing and moaning about december's RC (myself included), I actually am looking forward to seeing the whole section again.  I'm quite curious as to whether it was really all that bad, or if what we have hyped up to be the godzilla of all RCs will turn out to have just been a disappointing product of our test-day nerves + a somewhat difficult, but possibly-not-terrible passage... regardless, i think our reactions and anxieties have been magnified x10000000 through the lens of LSD discussion.  The more I think about it, I don't think it was as bad as riddled basins - although it was definitely a less-than-desirable passage and section overall to encounter for the real thing.  I wonder what post-riddled basins chatter was like actually... anyone know? 

Studying for the LSAT / Foreign scale: myth or not?
« on: December 03, 2007, 03:01:27 PM »
I remember for the September 2007 test, there were several LSDers who had taken their test outside the U.S. and claimed that their scales were different from the U.S. one.  Was this ever verified?

Studying for the LSAT / Why does the February test have such a bad rep?
« on: December 03, 2007, 02:49:19 PM »
I'm aware that it's non-disclosed, but other than that, is there a reason why people are turned off by the February administration?  Is the scale traditionally tougher or something?

Studying for the LSAT / Advice: I'm in the cancellation boat
« on: December 02, 2007, 06:45:45 AM »
I am seriously considering cancelling my score... and would really appreciate some advice.  I was scoring mostly low to mid 170s on PTs, and was hoping for the same on the real thing.  The RC on yesterday's exam, however, has me extremely concerned.  While I'm confident I did well in both LRs and the games, I really struggled with the RC for some reason... RC is usually one of my stronger sections, but my focus was just not there.  I didn't find the topics particularly challenging or even the questions... my timing was off, however, and my brain wasn't digesting the passages at all.  I know I am capable of scoring well high into the 170s, and I refuse to settle for anything less.  On the other hand, I would really like to apply to law school this year... Anyway, so my main question is:  How bad does cancelling look to T14s?  Is it worse to cancel and then get a 170+, or get a sub-170 and retake for a 170+?  I am guessing the latter, since apparently Harvard and some other places still average.

that f-ing RC.
