Studying for the LSAT / Improving LSAT VOCAB
« on: September 21, 2006, 11:47:38 PM »
One of my weakest areas seems to be reading comp. After reading most of the essays I find myself thinking WTF just happened when I look at the questions. Part of the reason may be some of the tricky vocab assocaited with the reading comps. Anyone got a good idea on how to improve LSAT vocab over 8-9 month period???

Studying for the LSAT / OVER KILL STUDYING
« on: September 21, 2006, 11:31:30 PM »
Hey I was wondering what "amount" of studyign people usually do. Is doing 2 full timed tests in a given day over kill or are there people out there having success with this "cramming"??? Bear in mind im taking the June LSAT so I'm not in a cramming 1 week away LSAT mode like everyone else. For those who are good luck!

Studying for the LSAT / Powerscore LR study guide useful?
« on: September 21, 2006, 11:17:10 PM »
Hey all! Can anyone say if the powerscore logical reasoning text is worth the money or gives out the same info all the other prep guides do? Also does anyone know of any prep test aides in reading comp? I seem to be struggling in that area the most right now. Thanks! ??? ??? ???

I definitely recommend doing what  you think will get you the best score. If you think that means taking a full timed section before the exam then by all means do so. Just remember its a LOOOOOONG test so maybe limit it by just reviewing a section you've already done before or something.

Right now I'm kind of in a tight spot. I'm not thrilled about settling for a school thats not in the top 40. (usnews ranking) I go to Temple University undergrad and have a 3.47 overall and 3.97 in Criminal Justice major and 3.5 in Psychology major. Temple law is a good school but its not the best I could do and I really want a change of scenery. My dream school really is Fordham or George Washington U.

Right now I'm registered for the Sept LSAT but my diagnostics are only hitting high 150s. I know I pretty much need mid to high 160s for a school like Fordham. Should I just cancel taking the test in Sept and wait, take a year off, and practice for the LSAT? In addition my senior year grades will be averaged in bringing me up to a 3.57. (This is assuming I get all As which I have been doing the past 2 years, my freshman year was an array of Cs in sciences) I was thinking of still taking the Sept LSAT but I'm too worried of still only getting in the high 150s and having that score linger around for such a long time and then have to be averaged in with any subsequent test scores. Should I just take the test and see how I do or just wait til the June 07 or October 07 LSAT to take it the first time?

Finally, I would really have to find something to do in the year off between  undergrad and law school. Any suggestions about this and the previous? Thanks for your input!!!
