Studying for the LSAT / Re: tips for improving timing?

Shaz,

When you skip around, when do you bubble your scantron?  I've been bubbling as I go, but when I skip a question I always seem to screw up my scantron.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: October or December?

If you register for the Oct. 2 test, you can change the test date as late as Oct. 4 via fax, phone, or online.  By mail the latest is Sept. 13.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: scholarships/aid at top schools

Jen,

A graduate from my school with a 3.83 gpa & 165 lsat got $15,000 in scholarship money to George Washington.

My first diag was so horrible because I had NO idea what to look for on the lsats. I was answering questions based on common sense, not logic. Then I started to learn more about the lsats and on my own I went up 30 pts. My biggest weakness was type 2 questions and the games. Once I learned how to do the games it was over. While I was doing testmasters, everyday I focused on mastering the material taught in the previous less. I really started. Needless to say I didn't have much of a social life those three/four months. Everyday i put in 2-3 hours of studying. Most people aren't willing to do that. Then I made flash cards for certain terms like suffiecent/necessary, logical opposites, rules for cause and effect, and negation techiques. Even after I understood the concepts, I would always review the information. On average I would spend 15-21 hours a week studying on topic of school work, intership and my other commitments. That's why I said if you are willing to put the work into the lsats, you can do very well.

Regal,
You are my idol.  I totally believe one can improve his/her score immensely as long as he/she puts in the hard work on a consistent basis.

Law School Applications / Re: part time lawyer?

dsong,

It seems to me that you really want to be a lawyer.  I think going part-time is an excellent idea.  I'm not sure what type of work you do, but since you're the sole breadwinner for your family, you must make pretty good money with a fair share of responsibility.  I believe law firms will want someone like you who has good WE and supported your family while earning your JD even without summer intern positions.

I guess my motto is: "Don't give up on your dreams."

Law School Applications / Re: International Law?

I haven't thought about going into intl law, because I'm only fluent in English (at least I hope so).  I've heard it is a booming field and believe it's an excellent specialty to get into.  I hope you love to travel cuz that's another requirement.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Octobers - Will you buy LR Bible?
« on: August 10, 2004, 05:12:54 PM »
I will buy this if I can find it. Will they stock it in book stores by September?

I doubt it since I couldn't find LG Bible in any bookstore.  I ordered both Bibles yesterday from the www.PowerScore.com.

The way I see it the thicker the book the more I get for my $$$ .. that is if the price is the same as the thinner books.  Plus, sometimes a book is so good that you just don't want it to end.
