Studying for the LSAT / LSAT as compared to the other one I took
« on: June 08, 2009, 11:59:39 PM »
 ;D :D

I was much more prepared, and without talking about the content on the LSAT. There was 1 game section on the LG that was completely impossible and it was impossible in that they asked questions on the guy who didn't get defined and that's all im saying without giving anything away which made things completely hectic. The other 3 games were basic and nothing special. Hoping for a 20/23 on there.

The LR sections were below average and probably some of the easier ones I've seen from PrepTest 30-38.

Had a RC experimental section, I knew as I was doing it that it was the experimental because of the question count. There was no way that they were going to allow that many RC questions on the test.

Having LG be my first section made me excited, but the one game disappointed me so.

Finished all the sections, our proctors even let us drink water and eat during the LSAT. It was great. Most relaxed atmosphere ever.

The RC with the Fractural Geometry was not as hard as most people are making it out to be, a lot of it was easily deciphered in the text and really could have been anything written there, the fractural geometry was just there to throw some people off because it was math. If you found the conclusions, you were fine.

Other than that, I'm just hoping the curve is fair, because it was not that hard of a test.

Studying for the LSAT / Reading Comp Section Prep Test 44, Section I
« on: April 17, 2009, 12:41:30 AM »
Taken from the Kaplan book, I took a pacing section tonight. I have been doing relatively well, scoring -6 and -5 on sections, way better from the previous times of -9 to -11. I digress.

The point here is, there is a passage in which it is talking about The Survival of Nerve Cells...and I realize that most of us struggle when it comes to Physical Science passages and I am not one of them that claims otherwise. But, this one seemed more ridiculous than usual. I have looked at the answers, I dont have the actual explanations for them. I was wondering if anyone could help me out in sorting this reading comp section out...it just made my head spin  :o :o

Its about Levi-Montalcini and her discovery of NGF.

Thanks,
Mike

I have studied for this test twice, the second time I did better than the first. I am planning on studying about 2hr a day for the June Test starting March 15th (my spring break officially starts and almost all my work will be done for the semester- yes I have easy education courses  ::) ). Anyway, do you think this will be enough time, too much time or maybe not enough?

Thanks,
Mike

P.S. I am taking a Kaplan Course on the higher-score guarantee. I got a 151 then a 154 (I could have studied more both times and I really just was not in a good place mentally then). I am going for a 160+

Studying for the LSAT / Hope y'all remember me! Need some new advice.
« on: February 04, 2009, 02:48:45 AM »
How's everyone doing? Some of you may not remember me, and some of you may. I need a new course of action.

I've taken the LSAT twice since 2007. I have signed up to take the June 2009 Test and think about applying for the September after that. I originally scored a 154 on my last time around and got accepted into Hofstra's program. After a lot of thought and tough decisions...I decided not to go. I attended my original undegraduate and have been taking courses to gain my Education certification.

I studied a lot last time, but I need a new method. I Know a lot of people come on here and ask - well how should I study? Yadda, yadda and so forth. That's not really what I've come to ask. I know that the books from powerscore help and all that.

I need a new method. A different way of approaching this test. Other than Kraplan courses and the like. I don't think a course was really beneficial, it raised my score, but I think I could have done that on my own. Now, with all of this knowledge I have gained in the past, is there anything anyone here can suggest that would be different than reading the books, or taking a course?

I'm open to all suggestions and wouldn't mind an email if you had the time: TJCCARDCO@aol.com

Thanks in advance guys!

Where should I go next fall? / Goin to Hofstra!!!
« on: July 02, 2008, 02:20:05 AM »
Hey guys!  ;D ;D ;D It's been a really long process and finally the worst part is over. Now it's time to study!  :'(

Thanks to all of you who have helped me start with an idea of taking the LSAT, to taking the LSAT, to making it into law schools, to choosing the right one.

Hofstra Class of 2011. Anyone else on the Hofstra Class of 2011 band-wagon?

There are several rumors on the Internet about Hofstra and I even may have helped further a few of them a few months ago. I heard about how it was such a terrible area and how the school wasn't nice and this and that. I am here to dispel those rumors. It does not matter for most as a majority of you have already decided where you were going (well it was longer for me, so back off! hahaha - Billy Madison).

I am not doing the whole publicize my school thing, because I am not a homer like that but, I do enjoy a lot of the criticism and heat that Hofstra has taken now that I have seen the campus. Number one complaint is about the area, and the streets around the campus are all fenced in, there's walkways that go over the highways around Hofstra and keep you off the streets. There is a personal police force JUST for Hofstra and they are licensed police officers. Not to mention, this is a LARGE university and it just so happens to HAVE a law school in it. The facilities are extremely nice and polished, the law library is very nice and the law school is tucked away from a lot of the undergraduate programs. It is near the business school and has two-three of it's own buildings. In those buildings, there are tons of PC's and wireless (pretty much standard I'd imagine at law schools) and also there is 20 or so places to eat JUST on campus.

I was extremely impressed by Suffolk when I visited there, and at Roger Williams when I went there. I was not impressed with Rutgers-Newark and the area there, but this area is Hempstead is not Newark, NJ (Hofstra). It certainly is NOT the horror stories on the Internet, it is definitely one of the nicer University campuses I have been on (minus USC and San Diego, but i Mean, come on).

The Library (not Law) is extremely nice as well and most of the people I came in contact with were very nice. The Admissions Deparment is amazing and I'm glad that I decided to go there.

And the beat goes on.....

Where should I go next fall? / I find this weird..
« on: May 08, 2008, 06:31:06 PM »
Has anyone else NOT heard back from schools yet?

I've heard back from every school I've applied to, except one.

Rutgers-Newark.

Anyone else not hear back from the dreadfully slow admissions department?

Wait List / The Wait List Blues
« on: April 26, 2008, 01:38:35 AM »
Anyone else dealing with what I'd like to call, "The Wait List Blues?"

I got waitlisted at:

Qunnipiac
New England School of Law
and
Hofstra University

What is the probability of coming off Wait Lists? I got accepted into Roger Williams and may attend there anyway, but I was just wondering how high the possibility is that one would come off the wait lists?

Thanks fellow LSDers

This wait is driving me up the wall. I guess its cool that I have not gotten rejected yet (to the best of my knowledge), but what are they waiting for? I had to send a seat deposit for RWU and I do not know if I definitely want to go there. The deposit was due the 15th of April, so I had really no choice, just in case I did not get in anywhere else.

Is it me, or do they make you wait, and wait, and wait, and wait some more?

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Hofstra Jumps in the rankings
« on: March 25, 2008, 11:42:47 PM »
All the way to No. 98!

I got wait listed there, this may make me want to go there if I get off the wait list.

Anyone else going?
