Studying for the LSAT / Re: Take this poll tommorrow!

I picked option 3...

Considering that I am sick with a headcold and that the proctor tried to take away my timer during the first section of the test, my gut instinct tells me that I got a 163.

Not stellar, but nothing to be sad about  :D

In the RC section, the nerve growth passage had 6, and the other 3 passages had 7 questions each.. total=27.

I remember because I always do the RC passages with the most questions first ;)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Which section was experimental?

Section 2 was the experimental.  It can be LG, LR, or RC- everyone is different.  How it works is they give all the other sections in the same order, and then the experimental (in this case, section 2) can be any of the 3 different types.

yeah... what's up with that?

Oh, and did everyone else write their writing sample with pencils and not pen?  That was weird.

Mukhia, if I was in your shoes, I would postpone... you know that there is no way you can deliver a peak performance if you vomit all over your score sheet... I mean, that would probably wreck the scantron machine, and the buddy sitting next to you really isn't going to appreciate it if some lands on his shoes   :-\

Seriously girl, postpone and save yourself the stress  :-X

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Filling in bubbles after time is up.

I try to not get caught with blank answers, but hey, once in a while, I @#!* up on a practice test and forget to bubble in my guesses 2-3 minutes early, then run out of time before I get to them.

If this happened on the real test, I would do it... I didn't think a course on ethics was prerequisite to taking the LSAT.

That I cannot help you with... In Canada, those numbers are good enough to have a shot at pretty much every school, except maybe UofT.

I assume you aren't coming to Canada for law school, though...

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Who the hell scores 140 and below?

Yeah, I think you guys with Kaplan got taken for your money.

I didn't take a course, I just bought 30+ preptests and did about 2/3rds of them.  Explanations?  I found that I could eventually explain every question to myself.  Quiet place to study?  The library on campus worked for me.  They have study carrels on every floor, and every even-numbered floor is designated a "quiet study" area.  They even have a direct phone line to security, with this cute sign that states:

"To report noise, or any other security concerns, use this phone to call security"

Heh, or you could jump up and down and scream "SHUT THE @#!* UP, mofo" at anyone making noise, whatever works...

I'm not sure that we can call Matt "level-headed"...

After all, he wants to live in Edmonton for 3 yrs while going to Law School!  What is level-headed about that?  Someone, please tell me.

You know, I understand where you are coming from, and I really think that you should try to relax this week and spend your time convincing yourself that a) you will score in the low-to-mid 160's, and b) that you will feel great about that score. 

After taking Testmasters twice and studying as long as you have, what determines your score on the real thing is going to come down to luck.  You might get a 160 if you encounter a tough LR section and only do a couple of games on the LG.  You might get a 167 if you are on a roll in LR and score some easier games in the LG section.  Either way, no amount of studying you do this week is going to affect the result in a significant way.

I recommend doing 1 to 2 sections each day this week (NO full-length tests), in LG and LR.  I've decided for myself that this schedule, while keeping my brain focused on LSAT all week, will also prevent me from writing a bad preptest within the next five days, and screwing up my mentality for the test.

Good luck, you are going to do just fine!
