i think a retaking the LSAT will certainly help you out...and since your GPA is not the best, anything to help will do. I mean if it does not hurt your application, then I would say go for it. Just study as hard as your little heart can take ans retake the darn thing.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: October LSAT

As Nike says...Just do it!! It's better to get the nerves all out in the open NOW than in late Sept. I signed up for it yesterday and I got really depressed today about it. But it might also be because I'm a broke-ass college graduate that is depressing

Honestly, as much as this site is helpful, it also builds the anxiety when you hear people say it is all about your numbers and that's it. I think I'm going to try to stay away from here as much as possible until after I take the test.

I don't need to keep hearing that numbers is a do or die thing.

I don't mean to be a glass half empty person(since this phrase was mentioned above) but how can YOU predict what school you will get into. Yes everyone on here says its all about the number, no matter what, the number is 90per cent of the application/acceptance process.

The truth of the matter is, I think this notion that your number is 90% of the process is BS...yes the number matters maybe like 60% but to think that all they do is look at your LSAT and GPA, then you are in or out, I think you are setting yourself up for a failure.

Most people forget that there are other aspects to the process.

I mean I am going to study my butt off to get a great LSAT, but I would never ever think that my numbers, no matter how great or not-so-great they are, will automatically get me in or out of a school.

All I'm saying is, it sounds kinda egotistical and whatnot to say "oh I know I'm getting into Duke, UCLA etc" even before the application opens.

I know everyone will disagree with me on this, because like most people on here, we are all number obsessed freaks, but I just had to put in my thoughts. Carry-on!!!

You know you've been studying too long when you dream about the LR section AND everything people say, you start to draw assumptions and logical conclusions (my sister finds this really annoying)

Studying for the LSAT / I don't get it, why is this happening...
« on: July 13, 2008, 10:37:11 PM »
So the strangest thing is happening...after studying for like a month, I'm starting to get only about 3-2 questions wrong on ever section, EXPECT the freaking LR section(I miss like 8-9). I started out doing horrible on the games, but even that problem, SEEMS fixed, at least for now. But no matter what I do, the LR keeps tripping me up, I thought this was my strength, but as time goes on, this appears to be my weakness.

Are there any suggestions about how to better study the LR sections, because I'm getting kinda scared, if this problem does not get fixed by OCT? HELP!!

Studying for the LSAT / What's up with the timing when Practicing
« on: July 07, 2008, 12:53:55 AM »
Ok so I have been taking the preptest but they have all been un-timed. Actually, I took i timed once but usually by the time I got to question 16, I ran out of time.

I don't know if I should keep practicing un-timed for another 3wks and try to work on comprehension first then work on timing.

I have been studying now for like 3wks, I understand the test better but I don't think my timing has improved. I'm taking the test in Oct.,so I still have time (i think) and I'm taking the testmasters course, so I have that. But nonetheless, I'm getting a bit worried.

Does anyone(or two) have any suggestions??? Thanks peeps!

BT,
according to your LSN you scored an impressive 170, unless you think/know that you will score in the 175+ I suggest you forget about taking it again A one point gain or even two will not be that big of a deal, in my un-expert opinion

Your LSAT is great and so is your GPA,

What exactly did you do to get a 170, which is my goal, I have almost a similar GPA? I need to know so I can reproduce that.

« on: July 05, 2008, 11:04:05 PM »
I hear people say, I have a good soft factor...isn't any EC thing one does outside of academics good?

Am I wrong?
