Studying for the LSAT / Re: How long was your writing sample?

I also loved that.  It got quite a few snickers from people in the room because of the way she said it, "And by the way, the writing sample must be in ENGLISH."  I wanted so badly to reply, "But I want to write it in Japanese!".  But I resisted the urge to do so.

I would try to help but everything from this morning is a blur. After the test I drove home, incoherently rambled at my roomate about the test while he stared at me like I was an idiot, then I left and drove around for about an hour with music blasting, then finally made it back to my apartment somehow for a long nap. Now I have a headache and I feel like LSAC raped me.

Any contribution that I give will probably not help much.

I hope they at least got you drunk first.  As for me, after the test, I had lunch with an extremely beautiful and sweet girl, who will never be my girlfriend because I'm not Jewish.  To make it worse, the ONLY reason she won't be my girlfriend is because I'm not Jewish.  So, today, I have had to deal with two things that are just out of my reach, law school and a woman who can be described only as a goddess.

Convert. Just because we don't actively proselityze (sp? that one always gets me) it doesn't mean we don't want you. We like playing hard to get.

There's one thing, and really only one thing that I won't do for anyone, and that includes a woman I love, and that's convert to another religion.  I may not be a big time Bible thumping Christian, but I know there's a line that you just don't cross and for me, that's it.  If she had asked me for ANYTHING else, I'd have done it, but that's just one thing I can't do.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Anyone cancelling their score?
« on: February 05, 2006, 02:03:46 PM »
My practice scores ranged between 156 and 167, with 167 being an extreme outlier.  More commonly they ranged between 156 and 161.
Another thing that's keeping me from cancelling is my GPA of around a 3.9.  Even with a slightly lower LSAT score, as long as its within the 25/75 I still stand a good chance at being admitted to the schools I applied to.  I'm pretty much assured of U of D.

I hope it will be like October's scale or like June's would have been if it had been scored at 100 points.

About a page. I had about 10 minutes to spare and made sketches of the proctors on the scratch paper. I doubt anyone will read the essay.
Were they evil sketches or nice ones?  Did you show them to the proctors afterwards?

I think around 3/4 to 4/5 of a page.  I saw some people taking up all of both sides.  I'm sitting there thinking to myself, "What on God's green earth can they be writing about?"  Like my English teachers always told me, never say in 10 pages what could easily be said in 5.

Not as far as I know, but LSAC in their infinite wisdom requires everything to be done in a very specific manner.  Remember, departing form the norm is evil and is a path that leads to the devil.  If we don't all do everything in exactly the same way, there will be utter chaos, and the world will end.

Studying for the LSAT / On a more funny note...
« on: February 05, 2006, 09:41:08 AM »
Something just came to mind that I forgot about in my depression yesterday, that I thought was quite funny.  When we had to write the certifying statement, someone actually asked if it had to be in cursive.  When the proctor said yes, he said that he didn't know cursive anymore because he hadn't used it in years.  The proctor was like, "Well fake it or something, just find a way to connect your letters together and they might not care.  Come on guys, you're supposed to be lawyers, or going to be lawyers."  I guess I probably shouldn't have thought it was so funny, but I couldn't help it.
