The night before the LSAT, I had a dream about taking the test. I opened up the test booklet, and the first section was logic games. BUT there was no logic to them. For instance, there would be a set of lines _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ and you had to figure out what the word was and fill it in - there was only one right answer, and no indication of how to figure it out, except maybe one letter filled in beforehand. I woke up so confused and had to look at one of my practice tests to convince myself the logicless logic games weren't real : )
I find Philadelphia to be a really charming place. A world-class museum and a fantastic university are countered, however, with less-than-stellar public transportation. The only things I really dislike about Boston arethe sky-high rent and (although I am a Sox fan) the fanatical mood that surrounds the sports world there. To wit: It is virtually socially unacceptable to go to a bar in March and not be able to discuss the Sox's spring training schedule.

I didn't take any courses - I think they are probably a waste. I bought a Kaplan book, read through it and picked ou the good tips. Then I bought a couple of the "Ten Actual, Official Law School Admissions Tests" (or whatever they are called) and took 11 or 12 of them while timing myself and taking the break or two they offer you during the test. It worked like a charm, although it meant some really sunny summer days in the city library. My score went up at least a point with each test I took (save a couple. . . ). I went from a 159 to a 170 on the practice tests, and scored a 170 on the actual test.
Penn was my top choice, but money is a formidable tool
I'm definitely going - and shopping and dinner with a Boston friend after. I hope it doesn't snow!
Where should I go next fall? / Re: How many (and from where) fee waivers from law schools have you recieved?« on: October 29, 2004, 08:49:57 PM »
I've received three so far . . . William & Mary, Notre Dame, and Baylor. Hoping for more! I'm starting to have withdrawal. . . fee waivers are addictive : )~
