0mg, uuuuu bastarrdss!  ;D

when i first started studying for the lsat, i met this dude who was takin' a TM prepcourse and he would not even let me see his study materials or lemme see copies of the preptests or even any of his notes on the solutions. his 'reason' was that if i were to look at them out of the prepcourse context, it would end up hurting me more than helping me. i thought he was a total rat-bastard (meh, he was probably pissed cause his gf wanted to sleep with me by the end...and NO, i did NOT.)

he also started higher on the diagnostic (RC was his 'bread and butter') and whenever i would ask him for help, he would purposely give me a half-assed answer just so i didn't get the full benefit of his 'awesome intellect.' i would test him with some sample questions and caught him deliberately giving me misleading answers. ::)


anywhooooooo, we both took the june test and when he found i got a better score, he immediately started asking ME about MY homebrew stubby shalaylee methods. of course i helped him the best I could, and that really helped me too. The guy was an arrogant, argumentative fvck and trying to prove him wrong every time we discussed different problems and different approaches really motivated me.

well, u'd think he'd have learned his lesson, right? wrong. the guy still wouldn't share any info he got from his prepcourse with me, telling me he 'lost' the material, or that it really wasn't important, etc...


i really hope i don't meet anyone in law school like that (altho, i did meet a few d0uches at a couple of ASWs)

the upshot of all this... umm, be nice. help everyone you can. u'll probably end up learning a lot more from the process and you'll be forever blessed with rainbows and puppie dogs and ice-cream with gum-drops, o my!  :o

edit: ok, fine. i lied. i did mess around with his gf, but only after they broke up.. and she was nasty.

You are so bad! the name and the pic of Vince is pertinent.
On a serious note, i am not shocked by what you have written. People at my TM course are the same. There is this guy, whom i asked to explain the answer choice, who replied that he forgot how he got it. When the class resumed, he explained to the instructor and to the whole class who he got it.

In addition to becoming annoying, i am becoming a biatch as well.
My guyfriend and i will be taking Sept. LSAT and he does not get basic concepts. I try to explain and feel bad for him. On the other hand, i tell myself that i need more people like him to have a lenient scale.
The worst part is that  I am a nice person by nature...well not any more


The good thing is that you're there to help him.  Look at it that way.  (One person won't hurt your scale, of course.  And no one who takes it when you do will affect the scale whatsoever.)

thanks for making me feel better  :)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: energy drink?
« on: July 30, 2007, 12:05:25 AM »
the worst part of my homework time is when i when i forget certain important words in the stimulus and choose the wrong answer or sit for a long time picking an answer and when glancing at the stimulus see that remembering a certain word would have made me pick a correct answer earlier.

Guys, should i start drinking energy drink? does not increase concentration?

Simple formula to correct this.  It doesn't work with all problems but it is effective to combat a common long standing LR construction strategy.

When you get it down to two and are not sure, re-read the first sentence or couple of lines and the last sentence and couple of lines from the stimulus. 
Burying important details at the top of arguments (especially long ones) is very common with LR.  This strategy applies mainly to the LR questions in the 'death zone' that is roughly #15 to #21.

Quickly refresh your memory about the details at the top and the bottom and then debate the two contender answer choices you have left.  You can do the re-read in seconds and it can cut down the time debating the two remaining answers considerably. 

Structuring it so that the important pieces that you need to put together to make sense of the argument are at the top and the bottom and separated by garbage or distracter premises is also common. 

The text of the arguments is not presented in the best order to make it easy to see the connections and relationships.  Sometimes re-reading things in an order different from the way they are presented makes things click quickly. 

(notice that a lot of the explanations people post here are simple re-arrangements of the premises and conclusion that is presented)


Jeffort, i hope you and not your GF dumped you  :). THANKS man!

please PM me for my email? thanks

Common Dude.  WTF  ???

Posting a thread asking strangers in a public forum to pirate intellectual property for you?  Really?? 

If you are going to take that path at least try to make some friends and use PM's and email.  (I don't condone piracy of intellectual property JSIA)

You could simply lay out a credit card and order the book and have it by Tuesday if you want.

LOLLLLLLLLL

It  deceases focus for me . It makes you want to go out and take a jog. Or have fun with you friends

Its hard to sit down and do LSAT  problems when you have a lot of energy.


I have noticed every time i drink some type of thing for energy i end up just driving around, working out or  doing something useless. Its hard to sit down.

ok...it's just frustrates me so much that i miss words!! I feel that's my biggest problem.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: anyone else experiencing the same?
« on: July 29, 2007, 02:53:31 PM »
I have no social life right now and even when i communicate with my friends, i talk about the LSAT which annoys them. Should i chill out a bit? I feel like my social life is at stake

Studying for the LSAT properly <--/--> having a life

Being a law student <--/--> having a life

Being a lawyer <--/--> having a life

Annoying your friends by logically picking apart and arguing about everything they say --->  priceless

HTH


That is great!!!!

I'm annoying everyone, too.  I just told my husband the other night during a fight that his argument didn't logically follow.  He had murder in his eyes for a few minutes there...hehehe

lol

The ultimate cherry on top in that type of situation is to say something like 'why don't you just think logically instead of getting all emotional'

Works everytime, no matter whether a guy is saying it to the girl or vice versa. Watch out, fireworks time!
Just make sure all the kitchen knives and any other weapons you might have laying around are hidden. 


ughhh i hate when people say that cause that makes me soooo angry
