Studying for the LSAT / Re: I really did horrible...

I am going to take about 40 practice tests, re-read the powerscore books, and take a class, and hopefully I can improve significantly..

Seriously I cant stress this enough... skip the class.  Spend your money on a tutor.  The classes waste a lot of time.  You end up sitting through hours of review on stuff you understand.  The tutor will focus on your weaknesses.

1. Are classroom courses helpful? They are pretty damn expensive  I just want to know which ones are the best and if they are even worth the $1,000 plus you pay for them

I took a PS course and I'm not thrilled with my improvement.

Forget the course find a great tutor and spend your money wisely.  If you need me to elaborate search my posts.  I've been rallying against these courses for a few weeks now.

I tied off and shot some smack during the break.

Bet that took the edge off.

You know how every time there are high scorers completely surprised to score in the 160s?  I want to be the low scorer who somehow accidentally scores in the 170s.

Lets start a club.

Judging from your 'tar, you look like a pretty cute chick, but judging from your past posts, you sound vapid and your explanations are not good at all. The few acceptable explanations you have posted are just rehashes of other people's explanations. While I agree with you that a high lsat score doesn't necessarily guarantee success, I do believe that you have been bamboozled, hoodwinked, run amok! Led astray.

Ever consider that perhaps you were being conned by your friend "who scored 177" because he was out to tap some fine, young, asian booty? I do that all the time, with a nearly 100% success rate. When I'm interested in a girl, I pretend to be "simple and slow" around her so she doesn't view me as the manipulative womanizer until she's already given up the poonani. In fact, one of my most successful ploys (guys take note) is to get the girl to "tutor" me in some easy class, like the ones required for pre-med majors, long enough for me to make my moves. Once I've achieved coitus, I move on to my next target.

PS. Did your friend succeed in getting some poonani from you? I know I would had you in bed within a week. lol

Wow.  He knows what he posted is so uncool that he didnt even use his original handle.  Women take note that there are men like this out there in case you havent come across one yet.

I went to highschool with a guy like this.  Today he has 5 daughters.  Thats karma for you.

The books that PS supplied with the course had a great deal of detail.  The best aspect of them was that they organized the LR questions into categories so you could practice the techniques on groups of them at a time.  For explanations on the LR you might still have to come here or ask a tutor... the LG had pretty good explanations.  They also provide all the old LSATs in one of the books too.

I'd probably ask if theyve tutored for one of the big companies and if they havent what techniques are they gonig to teach you... do they have some for RC improvement, LG, LR?

If you read my posts most of them are trying to sway people away from courses and stick with tutors.  Ive heard bad things about kaplan and better things about PS and TM.  I took a PS class and it helped... my teacher was great and I recomend them regularly to tutor but the course wasted alot of my time.  Read my other posts if you need more convincing.  Go with a great tutor and buy some materials... 

This tutor sounds good since theyve got a money back guarantee, get it in writing, No course will do that for you.

I took a PS course and it helped me.  My teacher was excellent and I recomend her regularly for tutoring.  If your thinking of a course save yourself some cash buy the PS materials &/or the bibles maybe get the online access to everything.  Then find yourself a highly recomended tutor in your area.

In the course or the study at home course you will do loads of homework and if you want someone will explain it to you over the phone.  They do that here on LSD for free.  Usually your tearher will be very accessible.  In class you will work on stuff similar to what you do in the homework and it will be explained ad nauseum everytime someone has a question.  By the time the class is over you will have had things explained to you, that you already understand clearly, and end up wasting hours of your life.  Sure you will get some things explained that you need explained too but these items will be dwarfed by the others. 

Save yourself time and money and get a good experienced tutor.  Buy the materials if you must but if you have an ounce of self motivation, and I think you must since you found LSD, you will get much more for your money with a tutor. 

Read my other posts if you have time.

That is one itty bitty ring-bearer!  Awwwwww.

I think that kid is squatting to poop in his diaper while bearing the ring at the same time...  Talk about multi tasking!

I never even considered getting dressed up.  Comfort was my main concern.  I think everyone there had more important things on their minds than my attire.
