Studying for the LSAT / Re: Who is SICK and studying for Dec.
« on: November 05, 2005, 01:50:05 AM »
How long were you two together?

It's actually all good now. I took the day off and went out to see her. We hung out and talked a lot and everything cool now. I let her now how I still really care about her and all. We're just gonna be really close friends for now.

It's all good. I'm stressed out about the whole emotional situation, but now I feel a lot better about where we stand.

I'm sick psychologically. It's kind of weird, actually. I took a 'break' with my serious girlfriend just so I can take like a month and a half to study for the Dec. test, and 2 weeks later she was already with another guy and that is driving me crazy. I still study, but I always have the cra# on my mind.  >:(

I think the real problem might just be that I have the test coming up pretty soon and I am worried that this might have a negative impact on my score, as opposed to worry about the actual situation because I don't really want to be with her anyway.

I hate girls.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: transfering from part-time to full time
« on: November 03, 2005, 11:18:09 PM »
I'm not in law school yet, but I was wondering if it is possible to transfer from a part-time program to a full-time program at a different school, after, say a year of classes.
If is it possible, how do you make up the classes that you missed going from part time to full time?
Last question - if you're part-time, in year 4( maybe even 3?) are you expected to work/intern somewhere, and if so, how do you swing this while still working your current job.
Thanks.

you can transfer after the first year. you make up the classes in the summer. you dont have to do any work.

I can't believe you're taking the test again man but I tip my hat off to you. Good luck.

Thanks.  I just wasn't content with my 155 and I know with better studying and the LGB that I can get at least bring my average to a 157.

To elaborate, here is my breakdown from October: -8 LR, -12 RC, -11 LG (if this matters to you at all)

Do you think you did worse that you thought because of nerves or was it just like bad luck or not enough preparation?

Stage 1: Hate games and very bad at them

Stage 2: Start to understand them, still bad but showing signs of improvement/understanding

Stage 3: Get down methods and diagramming and still some disdain but nailing some games

Stage 4: Nailing most if not all games and enjoy them because they just feel easy.

I am at Stage 3. How do I get to 4? I have been practicing for a long time now and I have already completed the LGB. Some games just completely puzzle me even though I know how to diagram them and such. Other games I find pretty easy - especially if I hit a key inference or something and them I'm like, "JACKPOT!"

Studying for the LSAT / Re: 30 minute sections: pros/cons

Thanks for the input. I am taking in Feb so I have more than enough time (Powerscore weekend course this weekend, yahoo!).

Given this advice, I may bump up to 32 minutes.

Are you applying this cycle?

I have partied more this semester than any before.  I'm still kicking ass in class, I just have figured out how to succeed in undergrad.  I have no classes on Fridays so I'm going out every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights.  My girlfriend is studying abroad for the semester and all my close friends are single guys.  I must admit I am having so much fun.  Maybe it's because it has been so long since I went out like this.  I must say my body probably isn't loving it.  I just figure next year and the years after are going to be tough so why not give it one last go.  I have been able to convince myself a number of different ways that it is alright to be partying three nights a week.  I have been very faithful to my girl, I do enjoy seeing if I can still get girl's phone numbers.  I mean come on, everyone wants to feel like they still got, hey I still got it!  So next year will probably suck, that is next year, this is now.

Why are you still in a relationship with her if she's away? That's stupid. I would've just taken a 'break' with her.

Law School Applications / Re: Feeling Crushed
« on: November 03, 2005, 01:53:35 PM »
I don't think it's that big of a deal considering you have great stats. Just apply to more safeties, like T2 in your case, and you should be fine for law school next year. Don't wait around 5 years because you can probably solve your problem in as little as a couple months or so...

But yeah, a drinking problem is only going to hurt you in the future, whether you are a stressed out law student or a stressed out lawyer. You could drink, just keep it reasonable or else you will be the loser in the end.

I dunno.  Honestly, I don't really see the point of cutting off the 5 minutes... why not just set it for 35 minutes and then say "Ok, I hope I finish in 30 minutes... that's my goal!"  It seems unnecessarily stressful to say "I have to finish in 30 minutes, or else I'm counting the ones I don't get to wrong."

When I first started out, I would routinely have to use a full 34-35 minutes on all the sections.  Eventually, I noticed that I was just naturally getting faster without even trying.  On test day, my RC section was done in about 28 minutes (which was a good thing because I really had to go to the bathroom!), my LR sections were done in about 29-30 minutes, and my games section was done in about 20 minutes.

Dude, you're really smart for finishing the games section in 20 minutes. WTF??? You are crazy smart.

I ENVY YOU.
