Studying for the LSAT / October 2nd LSAT
« on: May 30, 2004, 12:49:31 PM »
This is the "Idiot" from the previous post, and I'm quarrelling with paying $29 to change my test date to October 2nd. Like I said before, it's likely that if I take it in June I'll be lucky to break 150.

My question is, is there anyone else out there graduating in May of 2005 and taking it in October? I could still start applying by November right? Does anyone have any thoughts about this whole deal, I'm sure I'm not the first to come across this. This message board is better than academic advisors man. In case anyone's curious, 3.2, BBA in Economics...any business majors out there?

I hate the Lakers.

Good point on postponing the test, and I have considered it...but I mean the feminine hygiene product bags at LSAC charge you 30 bucks to change it. Also, in the fall I am taking 15 hours of school with a very difficult load (senior year). I would have to put my preparation on the backburner. I mean the potential is there for me to put all my eggs into one basket, then royally @#!* up and be screwed for applying for fall 05. I could take it now, screw up, then take it again and risk the averaging of my two grades...i dunno. Why can't I be taking the SAT again.

Does anyone have experience moving the test date to October? I've been told June is the best time to take it, but if all these people are right, then I can bring my score up 15 points between now and then if I keep on truckin. I'm two weeks away and not feelin too good. I mean I just can't afford to get a 149, although my buddy got that and got into law school. Who knows. Any insights are greatly appreciated! (is anyone in Atlanta having a massive kegger after the LSAT?)

Here's my story...I've been studying now for over a month...with my highest score on a self-administered (using the cell phone timer, didnt cheat i promise, probly should have though) practice test being a 147. WTF?! First off, i took a free practice test from Kaplan in February that was proctored in an environment similar to the real LSAT and got a 150. Ok great I thought, I don't know s*** and I got this, the sky's the limit after I study. Nope, I'm still stupid.

I know all of you on here are really smart, and I like to think that I am too (Economics major, 3.2)....but WTF!? I would KILL for a 160. What's your strategy? I've tried slowing down and not rushing, doesn't work...I'll go through a test UNTIMED and get a 153. My arguments are hovering around 50-60% right. I kick ass on RC, games are a female dog. I talked to a lawyer and he said just relax, have a beer and go take it. I'm starting to wonder if there's any way you can dramatically increase your score on this test, almost as if its pre-determined on how inherently smart you reallly are. I'm taking the test on June 14th, and I'm considering going in wasted, I'd probly do better without any inhibitions. Damn this test man. Does anyone else want to break something at some point during studying?

I need to chill out I know, but I just can't fathom scoring a 160 and being like, "well coulda been better". I'm obviously in a different percentile rank, but hopefully some of you will throw some advice my way. I'm not lookin to get into Harvard here, I just want to go to a decent law school. You LSAT vets know better than I do, so share the knowledge. I'm gonna go burn the Princeton Review book that I bought.   ???
