Studying for the LSAT / Re: 1 week till test day, woohoo!

Stressed?  Who is stressed about next Saturday?

I am so relieved that I can turn my attention towards interpreting multinuclear NMR of organometallic complexes once this silly LSAT thing is over...

Yeah, I'm Canadian and I'm not really clear on this...

From what I understand about the U of Calgary, law school is considered an undergraduate program.  Technically, this means that you can get into law school without an undergrad degree, though they do specify that you need at least 2 years of post-secondary education before you can apply.  In reality, very few (<<<1%) of successful applicants to the law school actually get in without having an undergraduate degree, so in this way, it definitely isn't a regular undergraduate faculty, either.

And I think that most schools in Canada operate the same way, though correct me if I am wrong, because I'm not really certain.

BTW, I'm gonna apply with 2 undergraduate degrees under my belt  8)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Writing Sample

Heh, I love the writing sample.  It is the only written exam I have ever had where I have the liberty to spend half the allotted time just "planning" what I am going to say, and half the time actually writing the thing.

I mean, it's only 28 lines long, and there is so much ground to cover...

I have been thinking a lot about the recent terrorist attacks in Russia this past week.  My heart goes out to the families of all those people who died, especially the children.  An ever-present reminder that the terrorist threat worldwide is definintely not over.

Also, my condolences goes out to all those affected by the 9/11 attacks in America.  We Canadians were deeply affected by what happened.

Hmmm... commerce students, I suspect  ::)

Hey Matt, don't get too discouraged!  In golf, school, and life, I never worry about flubbing a practice swing/test.  Sometimes you have to get the bad performances out of your system so that you can serve up your best performances on the real deal.

Think of your final practice exams leading up to the test as a cleansing exercise!   8)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: MCAT vs. LSAT
« on: September 10, 2004, 09:45:44 PM »
All I can say is that I am glad that I will never write the MCAT.  I get stressed out over studying for my Chemistry and Physics exams enough as it is. 

Oh, and they have to wait 6 weeks to find out their scores, which is twice the amount of time that we get to wait for ours  ;D

Thanks!  I hope they go on tour again, I think that was the best concert I ever saw, and I've seen some pretty damn good concerts.

Ah yes, the adventure we had going back "home" after the concert, through the streets of Vancouver on mushrooms, was also a riot   ;D

Ah man, I really hate Cowboys.  Does this make me a bad Calgarian?

For the record, I still like the rodeo, and actual cowboys that ride bulls...  8)

Alright, the silly Canadian is going back to her better-than-American-beer-cause-it's-brewed-in-Canada-with-a-higher-alcohol-content beer, now...
