I'm taking a Princeton Review class (yes, I know...many people here aren't big PR fans, but thats not my problem) and I took my first diagnostic today. Got a 137 (I'll get a detailed report showing my weak areas sometime this week). I'm feeling VERY discouraged. I've never been a good standardized test-taker, and I'm afraid I won't improve as much as I want to, no matter how much I practice.
Any words of encouragement? (There's no need for the insults and meaningless comments that I've noticed are so commonplace here).

I transmitted my app to NYLS, and accidentally left blank the names of my recommenders. To remedy this, I sent a short letter along with my electronic certification sheet giving the names of the recommenders. Was this the right course of action?

Can you attend an ABA-accredited school if you've appplied to (but never attended) a non-ABA school? Here's my story. I'm applying to a bunch of ABA schools, and want to use Massachusetts School of Law (MSL) as an absolute las resort.
If, say, Nova Southeastern finds out that I've applied to MSL, would Nova not grant me admission simply for applying to MSL?
Thanks for your help.
I'm beginning an LSAT review course next Saturday (Princeton Review), and I've done very little studying so far. My thinking is that the class will help me to understand the way the test should be taken, and the way the questions should be understood, and thus, I'm waiting until I learn this to do any practicing. Of course, once I start the course, I'll get into a regular routine, but this is what I've been doing up to now. Anyone agree/disagree with my methods?
I wonder if people can give me feedback as to whether the following incident will hinder my ability to get into law school and/or be admitted to any State Bar:
As an employee of the Freedom of Information Unit in a local District Attorney's Office, I was asked to resign because I had made Freedom of Information requests to other state government agencies using the office resources (phone and fax machine). The information I sought was public, and no criminal action was (nor could it have been) taken.
After seeing some people here with criminal records, I'm inclined to think that as long as Im honest, it won't be a problem, as this is the only blemish on my record (except for 3-4 tickets for moving violations and an equal number of at-fault car accidents, but I don't think those matter.
Will my "Freedom of Information problem" hinder my ability to get into law school and/or be admitted to any State Bar?
Any feedback is welcome.
