Studying for the LSAT / Re: This board breeds paranoia

Actually, I think we're the ones who are paranoid.  Perhaps we are reversing cause and effect, or perhaps it's a feedback loop.  I'm thinking it's the latter.  I agree with the above posters who say that this is an outlet for their frutstrations.  Let us unite in our impotence.  And yes, LSD is a support group.  Where else would I find other obsessive, compulsive, controlling people to commiserate with me?

Hi, was just curious to see if anyone else received an e-mail from Northwestern offering a deadline extension?  And just how much do they penalize you for not having work experience?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Apps at the deadline--any thoughts?

Hey Winslow,

I also decided to apply to NW last minute, since they take the highest score and I think I improved this last LSAT.  Hopefully they won't count it against us.  Good luck :)

Wow, you're in a difficult position.

1. What kind of timer are you using?
2. What score are you aiming for?
3. When are you applying to law school?

I think you are only able to take the LSAT 3 times in a given two year period, but there was another post with a link saying that you could take it again if a school allowed you to.  But still, you have to ask yourself whether you won't freak out even more on the third LSAT because so much will be riding on it.  I don't think you are the only one who missed on games, either. 

I took last June and yes, it was nasty.  Also, it was in the afternoon and the test center was all hot, but maybe for you it will be different. 

About time management, perhaps you should try setting the timer for thirty minutes instead of thirty-five, that way you will leave yourself the five minutes you might need in the real test.

Also, I find that the silent timer helps because you can budget time for each individual question.  This calms me because I know just by a glance how I'm doing for time. 

On cancelling, my biggest mistake last year was not cancelling the June score  :(  So it's all up to you.  If you trust yourself to do better and you know you can improve, go ahead.  Oh, I also saw someone on lawschoolnumbers who had cancelled twice and gotten, I think a 170.  Look at the people with 170 and try to find him and ask him this question.

166-171 is my predicted score band.

RC: 3-5
LR: 1-3
LR2: 1-3
LG: 0-4

I found the games section to be much easier than usual, reading a bit tough, lrs average.

Oh... thank goodness this wasn't a LR question or else I would've missed it :P

The same thing happened to me in June.  I get a Games section, actually FINISH it, go on break all happy.  Until I come back and take the real section and miss an entire game +. 

You probably are just being hard on yourself.  It is the first day after all.  I think we're all still in the midst of decompressing.

I'm usually good at estimating my performance (by counting up the number of circled questions in each section).  But the second logic game was the real one, so you should be happy  ;)

There was a question about whether modern philosophy should concentrate on esoteric problems that were "solved" by ancient philosophy.  It was an argument between two people asking what they disagreed about and I said "Whether modern philosophy should concentrate on ancient philosophical problems" or something like that, think it was answer a.

yea!!!!  :)  Wasn't this the third game?  I think it was 1) bands 2) teachers and schools 3) campers 4) hats.

Hey, this whole ordeal is kind of funny.  I feel like we took part in some experiment where they inject you with a drug, say heroin, make you watch a film clip and then separate everyone out so that they can ask questions about what happened.
