Studying for the LSAT / Re: Liz's Guide to LSAT Links
« on: October 22, 2006, 03:57:39 PM »
Liz, you are the best!  I haven't posted much but I've read a lot of your posts and if Karma has its way you're gonna get a 180 when you write this thing.  (You and Jesus both have good things coming to you). Here's a link for any Canadians out there who haven't stumbled onto this site yet.  (too bad we couldn't combine Canadian school admissions requirements with first year salaries from US schools.)

Oh Canada! / Another Canadian Seeking Advice
« on: October 21, 2006, 11:18:53 AM »
I am in my third year. Mature Student.
I have a 3.7 GPA (no drops)
I have a 160 LSAT
Lots of unrelated work experience and pretty crappy soft factors.  Basically, I took 8 years off after high school to go snowboarding, so I have to figure out how to spin that into something good. ;)

I want to go to law school next year (before finishing ugrad).  I'm willing to go anywhere west of Manitoba.

Do I have a chance, or should I finish my ugrad and start volunteering somewhere?
Thanks so much for your help.   :)

Minority Topics / Re: Tony Blair's Comment - CNN
« on: October 18, 2006, 04:06:27 PM »

hopes-n-dreams -- you're right about everything you've said so far. This sort of topic just attracts the C-Span call-in types, that's all.

AHHHH, transforming an interesting subject of debate into a right/wrong dichotomy, and then resorting to an ad hominem.  I think I see a bourgeoning political career here!  ::)

Macphisto,

If I tell you that your argumentative skills are unparalleled, and you are clearly the most intelligent poster ever to have posted on LSD, will stop resorting to ad hominems and stop being so oddly combatative?  If so, then you do indeed have all the qualities I just mentioned and we are all in awe of your rhetorical skills.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: wait a year

I took 8! years off after high school to pursue my first career as a professional snowboarder. Granted, I never actually became a professional snowboarder but my god I had fun trying.  

I guess some people would think I've fallen behind and that I've wasted so much time, including some who have posted in this thread.  

They may be correct, but I've got 8 years of memories that I would not trade for anything.  Including the financial or career benefits I may have missed out on.  

Not many people have laid on their death beds and wished that they had worked harder or had started their careers earlier.  Some, but not many.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How does my plan sound?

Definetely, for me I was glad I saved the most recent tests for the two weeks preceding the test day.  The one thing I would recommend (though, who the hell am I?) is to figure out over the next couple of months whether you perform better after a couple days off or whether you perform best at the end of a three or four day test stretch.  That way you'll know exactly what to do the week just before the test.  I need a couple of days off to perform my best but I've seen some posters here who claim that they do better when they take tests back to back.

I know exactly what you're talking about.  However, I've talked to two lawyers (pretty small sample, I know!) about their LSAT experience and both of them said that they scored higher on the day of the test than they did on any of their practice tests.  On the day of the test you will not make those little mistakes because you'll be way more in the zone than you were for a practice test (no matter how much you try to mimic the actual test).  Keep the faith!
