I was trying to give the effect of whispering.

That would be shouting.  ;)

It's going to be rough to pay for that...through my company, I only have to pay like $6 per month.  I was researching comprehensive health insurance, and it's going to cost me like $7200 for 3 years...add that onto the debt...

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Kaplan LSAT classes

I don't see how you could "cram" for that test in 2 months, if you never did any of that type of work in college, such as the games.  Unless you study from morning to night.  Even at that, you can only remember so much. 

Well, I did it (not sure how successfully).  I was an Elementary Ed major in college, a Pharmaceutical Rep now...decided to finally take the leap that I'd been meaning to take in late September.  Started Kaplan Oct 18...and took the test on Sat.  I only took one philosophy class in college (moral reasoning) and worked full time while studying.  (sorry for the resume)

My final practice test score was a net increase of 10 points over my diagnostic score...so I'm hoping for the same or better when I get the official score in Jan. 

long story short...it is doable if driven enough.

Which you rather see the Eagles play at that point? (Steelers, I'd say, just because of Belichik and the rookie QB.)

The Eagles have no excuse not to get to the Super Bowl this year.  Now whether they can beat the Pats or the Steelers is another question. 

Yeah, I would rather play the Steelers (even though they mopped us up pretty bad)  That Roethlisberger kid is phenomenal.  Did you see his comeback win last night?  He is going to take them to the SB I think.  The Pats scare me more, though.  Brady has been to the show and is well schooled in how to win, so I would go with the lesser of two dynamite teams.  Really though, the Eagles have as many, if not more, weapons than either of those teams.  Its just a matter of Reid getting over the hump and actually winning when it counts.  Sorry I hijacked this board  ;)

GO STEELERS!

Everyone,

i know the Kaplan classes are helpful but are they worth the price? close to $900.

has anyone ever taken one?

also do u think just taking a philopshy elective will be just as effective as taking the Kaplan class?


currently, im a sophomore who wants to take the lsat at least once next year

be well,
claudia

I'll admit, i didn't read all of the above replies, but I just finished a Kaplan course.  Though I don't think it was worth $1200, I did benefit from the structure of the class.  Plus, you're paying for not only direct instruction, but also access to every published LSAT and the explanations for the answers (both right and wrong).  If I had faith that I could pace myself to cram for the LSAT in 2 months, I would have done it on my own, but since I was short on time, I invested in the course.  If you have a lot of time on your hands, which it seems you do, I'd take some practice tests and study on your own...see how you do on the actual test.  If you want further preparation, go for Kaplan.  I took the class in Pittsburgh, and I really liked my instructor.

I don't even remember my SAT score...it was only 6 years ago...is that a sign of aging...?

I'm dreading my 25th birthday.... :-[

prescription drugs.

I think you've got a solid foundation there already.   

Unfortunately "studying" in the literal sense...Simply part of my job...drug rep.  Can't wait to get out.
