Could someone post the answers if they have them? I'm working, and I forgot to bring the answer sheet.

Thanks Michael

"Your score on the September 29th LSAT exam: 168"


Wow, that is a terrible dream better yet, a nightmare, what will you do with a score like that?  Retake or kill yourself?  You're the individual that was scoring consecutive 177's and looking for that extra help, right?  Whoa, you're going to need therapy and medication -- for life!

168, pfffft!

Typical LSAT snobs who think everyone on this site falls in the 90th percentile.

Typical fourteen-year-old girl that does not have a sense of humor...

Love the title....

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Powerscore Virtual Course
« on: October 01, 2007, 07:30:24 PM »
Powerscore is overrated. Online there has been a consensus that powerscore and testmasters are great. They are not great. They are just better than Krapland. Much better.

.... babbling

Powerscore and testmasters are not bad. But  if you talk to most people who took them. ( Not on LSD) You would see they get average scores.

OP: this guy is a clown.  His expectations are: buy book, read once, score goes up.  If it does not fit that mold, he says the methods are "crap."

Not sure about the virtual course since this is its first offering, but I took the full-length course, and I would have easily paid double -- the info was superb.

Anyone know how long I can access the online material after completing the full length course?

My guess is permanently. I received this today:

"1. The Online Student Center:  There are some incredible tools and resources on the Student Center, so be sure to use the site for more than scoring your practice tests!  For example, there are chapters from our Logic Games Bible and the Logical Reasoning Bible, Setups for every Logic Game in the take-home Supplement, LSAT writing samples, and the most recently released LSATs."

Funny, because instead of doing the LSAT, I was printing everything on the website like a madman.  I love the homework explanations for each question.... great stuff.

I am a senior

As in college or life?  I'm guessing life since this is the nontrad forum...

I really need a mentor because I feel like I have none to talk to at my predominately white school.

I highly disagree with "hidey" because if you're a URM and/or apply yourself on the LSAT, you'll be fine.

Your potential yearly salary versus debt is not an indication of success.

The minor tickets (punk in drublic, no insurance, etc.) will not harm you; although, the DUI conviction may, so I'd use the rehab to explain the DUI away. 

As far as grades, just do a comparison on lawschoolnumbers.  A strong LSAT will overcome any gpa.

8:30 rolls around and they start checking people in - I left my drivers license at home. I ran to the parking lot and was about to ride my bike home to get it, when I saw a man dropping his kid off to take the test. He drove me home and back to get my ID and I made it in plenty of time. I felt like an idiot.

Interesting, may I ask, are you male or female?  Either way, what a cool guy for offering a ride.

... in the end though, I'm thinking that we really only have two choices...option one involves pills and re-working the monthly budget to accomodate for a significant increase in the purchase of alcohol;) or option two means forgetting today and preparing for Dec. Honestly, we can't let one bad day wreck our lives...we'll beat this thing in Dec. No worries.

Use option one for this weekend, then, start option two.
