Studying for the LSAT / Re: Game One rules
« on: June 13, 2005, 07:21:06 PM »
G was either in 3 or 4; or 1 and 4.  It's been a while but I'm going to bet on the former for now rather than the latter.

And that's all I remember now.  I WISH I COULD REMEMBER MORE!  Good luck.

Hi.

Just wondering has anyone or have you heard of anyone starting LS in the fall semester where either he/she/they retook the lsat in June?  I cancelled my feb. score and my apps. have been in for quite some time now; however, most of the seats at most of my designated schools are filled.  It's not looking to promising at this point, but not that I expected it to with a June lsat.  Regardless, I'm just wondering if anyone has ever been granted a seat so late in the game?

Thanks in advance.  :)

BlondeLawStudent,
I completely agree with you about this test. I also had LG last, and felt like it was my weakest section. Most people on this board seem to agree (as do I) that if LG is your weakest section, this LSAT was optimal, because there were only 22 questions on that section, and the LR was somewhat easier than normal.

My love/hate relationship with this site basically has to do with fact that nobody can take any of these posts as the gospel truth. Even consistenly high practice test scorers don't know everything. Some of these questions were debated so extensively that I lost sleep over it.

I actually had a dream last night that my friends and family talked me into cancelling because they said anything less than 180 was unacceptable!  And believe me, I did not get a 180.  Anyway, relax and just hope for the best.  

Regards,

Hizzle


Damn Hizzle, Your family has some high standards, which is a good thing.  But anyting less than 180?  I mean, has anyone in LSAT history acheived this score?  If so, I bow to he/she.   :)

Lava and everyone else:

Thank you so much for sharing your experiences.  :)

You know, I asked something similar a while ago and the most sagest advice I received was to go by my initial reaction after walking out of there.  I sat outside after the test (b.c. it was so nice and I didn't / couldn't drive at that point yet) for like 45 min. and reflected.  But instantly, before I reflected, I know/knew where my strengths were and were not in the test.  I know I screwed up part of RC and part of Games, which really sucks.  On the other hand, I know I rocked LR.  So, as you, June 27th will be a really great or horrible day.

Try to think back to how you felt the day after the test.  Also, if you already haven't, and it's not too late, craft up all the details you can remember from D-day,like a self reflection list and I mean detail it.  After writing it, look at it tomorrow and see how you feel.  That should help.  At least this helped me and hoping it will help you too.

Good luck.  hth  :)  -V

After the first test, I came out thinking I got my ass kicked.  I didn't answer all the ?s, which I am usually able to do and felt insecure about my bubbling, but I was unable to bring myself to cancel after having spent the prep money (and time).  My friends reassured me that everyone feels awful afterwards, but I should get over it.  I went on LSD and thought that I actually would end up OK.  I seemed to be doing well with regard to LR questions posted.  (Which, I should warn people, if you are anything like me, is an indication that you may not remember your final answer as well as you think.)

This time, the test was definitely easier, I answered ?s with ample time left over, and only became unsure of myself after I learned that everyone else thought the test was a breeze.  Hopefully from these experiences I'll learn that, at least for myself, the feeling after the test is the most telling.  I would say to trust your intitial impulse unless you have good reason to doubt it.  3xs is a lot.




lava,

are you saying 3xs immediately after walking out of the test center; or 3xs after days after with sleep and reflection?  btw, thank you for your details.  I really appreciate it.


Lilli:

I had THE SAME PROBLEM for Feb's test only I was an insomniac freak for weeks preceding the test and that definitely contributed to my poor performance, as well as other factors.  The afternoon test is indeed so much better!

I think LR is the best test of intelligence which is important for any mentally demanding work, but I agree that the RC is more like actual legal work (not that it is that much like it).

I actually asked a recent LS grad this q and her response was:  'undoubtedly, RC.'  After thinking about it moments after, it made sense.  LR would be secondary yet definitely significant.

This is a link to an interesting article about the subject of the LSAT vs. MCAT.

My roommate was took the MCAT while I was studying for the LSAT and we frequently got into debates about this exact subject...


...then we decided to team up against education majors and their "basic skills test" they all freak out over.


LOl :D   You know that test is not that easy and the title is definitely a misnomer; but so far for me, LSAT has been the most challenging exam.  And I have never taken nor plan to take MCAT.

Studying for the LSAT / Attn: Retakers who took LSAT before June 6th

I am genuinely interested in hearing from those who took the lsat 2X or more, assuming you're willing to share.  Can you please describe your initial inclination and vibes after immediately walking out of the test center v. the after thoughts with sleep and time to have reflected from a few days after D day.

So if you would, please contrast/ compare your thoughts of your 1st lsat v. your 2nd or 3rd even.

Thank you much in advance!  It will help me decide whether to keep or not.

Lord, please forbid a 3 peat.  Thanks, -V
