Studying for the LSAT / Re: Retakers are more relxed or is it just me?
« on: January 26, 2007, 09:51:07 AM »
I don't know.  I don't feel all that freaked out about the LSAT and it's going to be my first time.  Yesterday I had a horrible test (based on where I've been going) and I just kind of blew it off as I was having a bad time and didn't let it get to me too bad.  After that one I had two of the best individual section scores I've ever got.  Maybe for some people it just takes realizing that you're going to get what you're going to get.  Oh yeah, and the whole notion that you can retake is generally calming to me.

I think you can do it LaineyY.  I have faith.  I know my studying appears to be paying off and I feel like the norm around here so I'm certain you can push that score up there especially if you have the help of a Testmasters course.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Who would sign up for a 160+ score right now?

Say you can sign up for a 160+ right now on the condition you can't take any more LSATs. It can be a 160 or it can be a 169. Would you take it?

If only because of the huge, HUGE difference between a 160 and 169, no.

I have to admit that I wouldn't for the exact same reason.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT Account Expiration date, anyone know?

I assumed you were talking about the LSAC account.  But yeah from what I understand LSDS is only good for a year but the LSAC account will renew for five years to match your most recent LSAT score.

you could always move for three months.  i moved to LA to take the TM course they offer there.  it was well worth it.  i think TM's best of the best teachers are in LA and NY.

Now that's dedication.

If I remember right after you take the LSAT you account is renewed for the next five years from that date.  But I could be wrong.

This is why I've decided to try and take the test in February instead of studying another 5 months for June.

My most recent preptest is in the region of what I want to score on test day.  I wish I were in Patrick's shoes but I can't say that.  All in all, if I could add 4 points to my most recent scoure I would be thrilled and I do intend to hit the practice hard that last week (I'm taking a week of vacation and have graduated so the LSATs all that I have to worry about that week).

I'll go with lonewolf on this one.  I was faced with the same situation and have decided not to take a prepcourse.  It is starting to look like its working out alright for me.  Additionally, if they are horrible (which both supposedly are) then your taking one is only going to take time which you could better use studying the bibles or taking more preptests.

I'm going to have to agree with Liz on this one.  To me that first (awful) score served more to motivate me and show me where I needed to improve.  Also, you can always take another diagnostic (and I would recommend it over and over and over, lol).

After that I would recommend studying games because that is typically the easiest area to pick up quite a few points.  Also, in studying games and continuing to take practice tests you will probably begin to understand the patterns in LR because of taking quite a few tests.  This will make the LR bible a LOT easier to digest as opposed to just studying it without having seen quite a few LR questions already.
