Studying for the LSAT / Re: suggestion of sources for simpler logic games
« on: February 07, 2007, 11:03:23 PM »
The GRE used to have simpler logic games.  If you can find an out-of-print GRE book for sale somewhere (must include the old analytical section) it'll serve as a source of simpler -- yet accurately written -- logic games.

I'll bet those used to be in the GREs of 1985-86.  Yeah, I remember taking those GREs...

Well, he could run (even run for his money), but he would only die tired.   ;)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: PT 51 ordered-not yet rec'd
« on: February 07, 2007, 03:19:54 PM »
I ordered PT 51 (Dec '06 test) through LSAC.org.  The site indicated it'd be available in late January.  No notice, yet, of it being available.  Is it somewhere online that I can download?  I'd like to get it before sitting for the test Saturday.

Thanks!

Got mine in the mail yesterday.  I ordered it on January 21.  Don't know if it can be downloaded from LSAC.

yaa.. i am doing 1 last PT today.. 50..

PT 50 today, 51 tomorrow and just a couple of sections in the AM on Friday.  No booze until Saturday night after the test.  Broiled salmon and cottage cheese for dinner Friday night; yogurt and grapefruit Saturday morning.  Multi-vitamins, fish oil capsules every day.  Lucky hat and a bazillion No.2 pencils...gotta get my game face on.   ;D

Going without ten cups of coffee Saturday morning will be hard to do, though...

General Off-Topic Board / Re: 5 simple things you enjoy
« on: February 05, 2007, 10:04:31 PM »
OK, for real:

1.  Listening to my significant other breathe while she's sleeping.
2.  Listening to my four pugs snore.
3.  Watching a deer approach my stand.
4.  Enjoying a cold beer on a hot summer day.
5.  Eating a fresh, warm glazed doughnut.

Non-Traditional Students / Re: Acceptances/Dings for NonTrads 2006-7?

In at Toledo today.  My first one!

Congrats!  I applied to Toledo--maybe I'll see you there.

Are you familiar with Toledo?  Good food choice--Tony Packo's.  You know, just like Klinger described on M*A*S*H.

1. Quiet evenings at home with my family
2. A good bottle of wine and conversation with someone I love
3. Cuddling
4. Mashed potatoes
5. Making small children cry (okay just kidding...Minnesota lake shores at dusk)

1.  Quiet evenings at home with my significant other--about all I have energy for now.
2.  Yes!  A good bottle of wine!  Doesn't even have to be with someone I love, but it does make the wine taste better.  Right now I'm enjoying Robert Mondavi Private Selection Sauvignon Blanc (overpriced, I know, but good nonetheless).
3.  Cuddling...uh, not really.  I have an aversion to too much touching.  Must be because my birthmother didn't get to hold me immediately after I was born.  I run away from hugs.  ;D
4.  Gawd, I'd kill for a plate of mashed potatoes!  With butter, sour cream and kosher salt.  Give me a BIG spoon!
5.  I love making children cry.  I hate children.  T'ain't worth nuthin' until they're eighteen, they get jobs and move out.  (At least that's what my Dad told me!)

Non-Traditional Students / Re: Acceptances/Dings for NonTrads 2006-7?

I know ther is a seperate board for acceptances, WL, dings, etc...But would it be of any help to start this kind of thread for the non-trads?  We could list the perceived relevance of 'soft' factors, background, work experience and such.

I'm taking the LSAT this Saturday and will post my result as soon as I get it (3/5 at 1000 hours, according to LSAC).  The rest of my story is here:

http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com/display.php?user=rugercaptain

I'm thinking a nineteen-year fire service career that includes three promotions, a successful grant writing record (+$400K from DHS/FEMA), and a non-traditional leadership position (for a woman) has got to be worth something as a soft factor.  I believe my three LORs are helpful, too, especially the one in which my recommender wrote about our battalion's response to a suspected bomb incident.  Finally, in my PS I compared my preparation for law school to my preparation for deer hunting.  Thought I would continue the "non-trad" theme throughout the application--age, career choice and favorite recreational activity.   ;)    

If I can score well on the LSAT maybe UM will throw me a bone.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: God bless all the February LSAT takers
« on: February 03, 2007, 08:39:33 AM »
God's not real. But I do appreciate the support. I'll probably get FUCT on the real exam for saying that. I'll take my chances.

Ya know the saying, "There are no atheists in foxholes"?  There aren't any in LSAT test centers, either!   ;)

(Ain't none in burning buildings, either, but that's work-related...)
