LSAC and LSDAS / No Awards :(
« on: October 17, 2007, 03:40:52 PM »
I have never won anything in my whole life - so I have to leave a whole paragraph of my app blank, feel like a loser. Very sad very sad. :(

LSAC and LSDAS / Leave Parents Info Blank?
« on: October 17, 2007, 03:21:07 PM »
On the app I am working on right now it is optional to fill in parents info - I want to leave it blank. Would that be bad?

Is there a Web site or a thread here that has a comprehenensive(ish) listing of the PS prompts for all schools? That would be helpful...

Studying for the LSAT / LSAT Ritual
« on: October 12, 2007, 12:48:39 PM »
Did anyone else have a ritual they fell into for LSATs? I became strangely superstitious, way out of character for me, like a baseball player that refuses to shave/change socks until after the season. Did anyone else develop something like this?

I did the same ritual for 11 weeks of Saturday morning practice tests, and the same on test day (btw it sounds crazy to me now):

Week before:
Run every morning before work - because being healthy could improve my score.
Run every night so I can tire myself out enough to actually get some sleep
Keep house way more clean than usual - because clutter could negatively impact my score

Friday Night:
-Pack survival kit, lay out clothes, turn off cell, bed by 9:30

Saturday Morning:
-Wake up waaaay too early at 5:30am
-Walk dog one time around the block (counter-clockwise)
-hot bath with lavender/chamomile/menthol bath crystals-  to open sinuses and relax muscles (Allergies in Austin suck!)
-Drive to my favorite coffee shop for latte and force down a breakfast taco
-Sit in car do practice problem

Wore same outfit for every practice test and on test day which consisted of all my favorite bum-wear which should have been tossed out 5 years ago: grubby sweatpants, worn-thin vintage tee (the kind with the really soft cotton), and my lucky long-sleeved tee for layer. I do think the ritual helped though, will know more when I get my score but it was calming - I guess I probably have mild ocd...  :D

--When my sister came to visit the weekend of the test she said: You look skinny! So interesting side effect of the LSAT - I lost weight and organized my entire house including closets. Now it's back to cheeseburgers and couch surfing and piles of laundry.

Studying for the LSAT / LSD Acronyms
« on: October 10, 2007, 02:31:55 PM »
Can we have a thread about LSD-specific acronyms? Apparently I am elderly and do not get the internet speak very well. I keep getting confused by the TTTs and TITCRs and the what-not.

Please define these and list more that I am probably overlooking.

Studying for the LSAT / real time for results
« on: October 05, 2007, 11:23:22 AM »
One of my friends who took the LSAT a couple years ago - not sure which test it was - said that they ended up getting their scores about 2 weeks out even though LSAC told them it would be 3-4 weeks.

Any one else hear about LSAC releasing scores sooner or later than the estimated 3 week wait-time? Any ideas if that could happen anytime soon? My nails can't take anymore gnawing.
