Yup!  :D I'm done with it!

I think they use a different exam. They don't disclose the ones used outside of the US, Canada, and the Caribbean.

So the problem was that Yonsei had no idea what we were talking about... I guess that makes sense ??? anyone planing to complain? cancel scores? My fingers are crossed for everyone!

LSAC and LSDAS / Re: LSDAS GPA
« on: June 13, 2008, 10:23:39 PM »
I don't know if they do it differently because it is from a different country, but within the US I believe an A from one school is weighted the same as an A from another school (4.0) even if the first one was a 95 and the other one was a 92.  As long as it is an A on the transcript, it is going to be counted as an A I would think.

I have never seen a transcript with number grades on it, it wouldn't make much sense because different places have different scales and it's all relative.

Anyone agree/disagree?

LSDAS computes international transcripts differently: they know. I'm not sure how they do it exactly, but they do have a system for "normalizing" international grades for the adcomms. It would definitely be worth asking if any other canadians know exactly HOW LSDAS reports scores from canada.

The problem with things like the "Smartpen" is that they require special paper the companies usually charge a ton for.

Do any of you use... paper?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: My First Practice Test

I have the same problem. I finish with time to spare on the LR and RC. I think it's just a reading speed thing for me, I read pretty fast, so even the parallel reasoning questions with really long answer choices don't take all that much time. I've found that if I force myself to go a little slower, I still finish with extra time, but miss fewer questions.

For the games section I recommend the bible, as a starting point. Some of their suggestions seem a little cumbersome. The main thing is PRACTICE, and learn your own system, LGB will help give you a good system to work from but don't follow it to the letter.

The other problem I had with the games section was getting bogged down on one question. If it feels like I don't know HOW to answer a question right away I skip it. Usually, when I come back to it later, the answer is a lot easier to find. (Maybe that's just me; if it weren't for the time limit I would actually enjoy the LG section).

HTH

Does anyone else wish they would just give us the whole test as one section, so that we could play off our strengths on the time? If I could use the extra ten minutes I have from RC and LR on LG, I would get a much better score ;)

*Correction Made*
 :-[


Sorry about that, I had an over-zealous English teacher in Highschool. He HATED the whole affect/effect vs. impact thing, so I've been over-correcting ever since. The Funny thing is I just had a conversation about this with someone last Friday. Regardless, the question still stands (gammer-nazis are free to join in as well ;))

Since the June LSAT is now just a week away, I thought I'd give everyone something else to worry about ;).

What do you think? My vote is pure conjecture, if anyone has read any articles or has data on this I'd be curious to read it.
