Studying for the LSAT / Re: June LSAT
« on: June 17, 2008, 08:39:04 AM »
I had RC-LR-RC-LG-LR. The RCs were average, but time-consuming. LR was average as well. LG was definitely my WORST section.

I'm afraid my thinking might have been a little off too. However, I'll see how I did -- I'm not a fan of canceling scores. If I did THAT poorly, I still have three months to improve.

Had a number of proctors sort of rotating around. They all seemed fairly nice -- all fair and no problems at all. Only thing that really irked me was the fact that there was a thunderstorm during the middle of the test (when we started, it was clear skies and a Sesame Street sunny day), but you work through the distractions, I guess.

And not to be a pain, but I don't think we're allowed to discuss the content of the test.

I could definitely have done better on the games, but I decided not to cancel my score in the hopes that my LR and RC will save me.

Normally, it'd be the opposite -- I would do miss 1-3 on games and then proceed to get mauled by LR, but today, something wasn't quite right. I got through the first two games relatively quickly (the first game, I had a bit of an issue with one of the questions which I ended up guessing in the end, second game was pretty easy) -- I thought, "oh, I have 20 minutes to work out two games, this is terrific timing."

BAM. Third game came around, and after I tried setting it up and answering a few questions I soon realized I was running out of time. Skipped on over to the fourth game, did as many as I could and bubbled in my reasonable guesses for the rest (in games 3, 4, and one in game 1). I would say I answered about half the questions in Game 4, a little less than half on Game 3.

Fingers crossed.

Hm. I was going to say A, but all the other choices are equally tempting.

Is there a choice F?

I'm coming out of a nasty cold (mid-Summer?) that's kept me from practicing often these past few days. I'll do some studying between today and tomorrow, then sit down and enjoy a few rounds of FIFA '08 in between.

To me, resting the body to be well for test day > any gain in marginal utility that studying would give me during that time.

Unless I'm at work, I'm going to hide underneath my desk until it's time to take the LSAT.

I scored a 171 on the December 2006 Preptest. I'm thinking it's an aberration, but I'm going to do a couple more Preptests to see if I can repeat the miracle. Maybe I've finally shaped up my LR skills.

Oh, boy.

I've just finished study abroad in the UK (early June), and have been studying for the LSAT during the middle of exams (since February, on-and-off, but more intensely in late March onward). I've been scoring between 164-167, but am hoping to get a slight boost in terms of point rage (maybe 165-168 in the next few tests?)

I've been scoring very well on logic games and reading comprehension -- missing one to three questions in most of my practice tests. Logical reasoning -- haven't been doing so hot; decent enough to score in the 165 range.

Fingers crossed.

I'm guessing you have to report all manner of sins (e.g. university infractions... yes, even if you got written up by your RA for drinking on St. Patrick's Day.)

I had a related question (sorry to hijack the thread...): does it matter at all if you attended the undergraduate institution of the law school? (e.g. Georgetown SFS for GULC or GW Elliott for GW Law..) Thanks!
