Dude, PE is the nastiest darn ever. Period. I cringe to think of what really goes into the orange chicken.  I mean, it doesn't even taste orange-y!

Lard, flour, lard, animal fat oil, uh...lard, and...a drop of orangina. oh yeah, and a young chick too.

hmmm, there must be something wrong with me.  i eat panda all the time.  i bet its not too good for me though.  oh, my dad took me and my sister out for galbi tonight.  yum.  i think the reason why im going to law school is to order galbi whenever i want.

man~ PE is so nasty. I had to eat there once when I was back in the states for the holidays.. the comment about the orange-y chicken is so true. hehe.  now i'm in korea - and just had so much food for seol-nal. =)

LSAT horror stories / Re: Thinking about cancelling score
« on: December 08, 2004, 09:56:43 AM »
it all depends on what you want.

for me, it was a decision between weather i wanna go to law school (no matter wut skool i get into) next year v.s. getting into certain schools with particular rankings and all that.

i also took the dec. test. and i just sent in my cancellation request and just got it confirmed.

i also bombed the games section. lost my easy 5 points on the first game cause I freaked out and for the rules mixed up. though i don't remember too well, don't think i did all that superb for the third game v- maybe three out from that.

other sections - assuming 10 questions wrong in total (in the worst case - those were the number of questions i couldn't go back and check for cause i was rushing out of time)

so in my brief analysis - came down to about -18 points. which would very well suit into low 160s. which is not a bad score at all, but I felt it was not good enough for the schools I was aiming for.

I consulted a lot of people before I made my decision - people on this board(thank you all so much), close friends, professors, etc

They had differing opinions, but a lot of them said if it was the case I freaked out and did not optimize my potential - cancel the thing and retake it in June. maybe study a little more.

I know a lot of "what ifs" are there. It killed me to think - what if I got something like 168 - or what if I really screwed up and something like 155.

The important thing to remember is that the score is attached to your permanant record if you don't cancel.

It probably is too early to tell, but I think I made a wise decision, based on my goals and needs.

Think about this very carefully - make a realistic analysis.

it's really gonna suck to live in the "la la lsat land" for six more months... hopefully it will pass by quick...

LSAT horror stories / one more question to ask
« on: December 07, 2004, 03:52:04 AM »
I really, really appreciated everyone taking their valuable time to give me some inputs.

So, I think I am gonna fax my cancellation request tomorrow. and study again for the june test.

When should I start studying again though? I am still in college and my finals are next week. and there comes the christmas, and the new years.. I guess I start fresh from the new years?

I am having a little bit of motivation problems too. I know it was my mistake to be all freaked out at the real thing, and making such crucial mistake on the easy sequencing game. and the mistake should not be repeated, at least for the june test.

but i am still in the "depressed modd" after the bombed test. I really need to get remotivated..

I've already used all my 44 prep tests. I guess I will start from test # 1 from Jan. Maybe two tests a week with the comprehensive review. For the dec. test, I did do all 43 tests, but did the comprehensive review thing from test # 29 or 30 I think. I might as well set my goals a little higher if I decide to devote six more months of my life to this test.

I also admit I have a little problem with science passages. I get extremeley slow when I start to read them. I was thinking, maybe take a extra bio class next term for my elective requirement so I have a better understanding about the whole "cell diversion and molecules" typa things..

And maybe reading those science journals/magazines everyday - so I would be more familiar with the subject.

Could you give me some insights about the plans listed above?

Also, any other suggestions about how to study for this all over again, w/o any new materials?

Thank you...

Don't panic.  Get a good night's sleep and reassess tomorrow.  It sounds like you could be assuming things are worse than they actually are.  Misreading one set of logic reasoning isn't the end of the world.  When I took the LSAT, I ran out of time and had to guess on an entire RC passage - and still ended up doing just fine.  You can't be sure how many questions you missed until you see your score (provided you don't cancel).  At what point during the test did you start 'freaking out'?  How much of this is your nervousness about the importance of the score?  Are you sure you WANT to apply to law school this year?

All is not lost.  I'm not sure what I'd do if I were you, but I have a feeling it isn't quite as bad as you think!

thanks for the encouraging reply.. my assumptions are defenetely towards the worse end. but then again, even on the worse side - what if I got like 155. arg, i hate this feeling.

I wasn't super "freaked out" but i found my thought process weren't as clear, compared to when i was doing other practice tests, i was also running outta time immensely - didn't have time to check my answers (usually do have a minute or two at the end to check my answers). for dec. lsat, i was rushing.. also, i kinda freaked out more(my thought process slowed down) after the whole "there are 5 minutes remaining" thing got announced..

I was really hoping to apply this year. but it would be an option to work an extra year after graduating college before I start law school. provided that i study like crazy for another half a year and get a really good score.. i do admit my reading comprehension level could be improved, esp speed wise..

i really don't know what to do. it would really suck to study for this darn test again.. yet by not canceling the exam i feel really bad on, im making a dangerous bet..

o boy.. what to do..

LSAT horror stories / Shoud I cancel..?
« on: December 05, 2004, 04:57:02 AM »
I freaked out at the real thing.

did okay on rc, two lrs, maybe missing 4 questions each (those were the number of questions i wasnt quite sure of)

i totally messed up the first game though. the sequencing game, i got the rule wrong. =( it was s-w-p, (don't exactly remember the two variable's alphabets, excuse me if im wrong) but i wrote it as s-w, p-w.. no wonder why the question didn't have an answer.. so im assuming i got most of the Qs wrong for that first game.

and the third game - i was just lost..

i usually get 168~170 on my practice tests.

I think i missed at least 20 questions on this dec. lsat. which should roughly add up to 160..

should i cancel, (which means i can't apply till next year) and take either feb, or june test and apply next year..

if i do retake it, should i take the feb test, or study for six more month and do the june test.

my gpa is quite strong - 3.91, im still in college - it's a medicore state college, graduating next may. i have a "sort of" unique status of being bilingual (korean and english - tho i don't think it's that big of a deal), and being from a economically disadvantaged household.. been working since 14 to support my little brother and grandmother after my parents left home. maintained a full time job throughout college, and graduating in 3 years..

those soft factors, i think, would help if my stats were great (gpa and lsat together). but with my estimated lsat score, i probably won't get into any schools i want to get into.. i was really hoping for boalt.. or even usc.

wow this turned into a big babble.. the lsat totally kicked my @ss... i really would appreciate any feedbacks.
