I just spoke to them about when id be getting my OCT. 2005 LSAT in the mail and they told me there were no guarantees i'd get it before the december test...i remember someone posted the test on these boards, does anyone still have it and is willing to be kind enough to email it to me? :'(


I'd be interested in finding someone with the PDF too, if possible.

I called LSAC on Wednesday (11/16) and the lady said that they hadn't even gotten the Oct 2005 preptest in the office yet!!!! I probably won't order it.  :o

For those of you who ordered the 10/05 test through LSAC, have you gotten it yet in the mail?

Amazon.com has it listed as to be released on Nov 30th, although LSAC has removed their "will be available in late November" blurb from the website. I wonder if LSAC will be able to get it to us in time if their estimated shipping is 3 weeks???

Studying for the LSAT / Re: who's getting nervous?

It's the really wordy games where instead of the variables being "A,B,C,D,E" or "Larry, Mo, Olive, Pat, Randy" they are "2 oval wool rug, 3 rectangular wool rugs, 1 oval sil rug, 2 rectangular silk rugs"...you know, really wordy and hard to juggle.

And I dunno what my problem is with RC; I think I read to slow. Which is a drag b/c I was a poli sci/rhetoric major and thick theoretical reading in college.

I just can't process it as fast as I need to.

Have you gotten more wrong on RC with the recent tests or with the old ones as well? I used to get 0-3 wrong on the older RC's, but now I'm getting 7+ wrong (2004 exams and on) and it's really driving me nuts!

For me, I flip flop between 159 and 163-4. I find that I'm missing a lot less in LR, but I make up for it by missing more in RC. I used to only miss 2-3 problems per section, now it's 7+  >:(

Personal Statement / UC Hastings LEOP statement
« on: November 05, 2005, 07:46:36 PM »
According to the UCH handbook, the LEOP statement is "supplemental" to the main personal statement. Does anyone know if the two essays will be read together or should each one stand alone by itself? I'm asking this because I've left out the "why I want to go to law school" stuff in my LEOP statement b/c I've already covered it in the main PS. But I'm not sure if people in the LEOP committee will be able to see my main personal statement, or if it's necessary to repeat stuff within the two statements. Anyone know?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Official Dec 05 LSAT GAME PLAN/Strategies
« on: November 04, 2005, 11:51:27 PM »
1. Go over LRB at least one more time
2. Erase and re-do every single game in the TM books by test date
3. Do several LR sections/week, timed. Analyze mistakes.
4. Take a timed preptest/week (although I only have two more 2005's left... anyone know if Oct 2005 will be out before the December test date?)
5. Go over preptest results, analyze wrong answers, why I got wrong answer, etc.

That's about it... I'm secretly hoping Dec won't be as brutal as Oct or June but I don't want to fool myself and be unpleasantly surprised come test day  :-\ I'll just study hard and expect the worst, I guess.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: What books do you recommend? What helped you?
« on: October 17, 2005, 08:15:03 PM »
Logical Reasoning Bible
Logic Games Bible

They probably won't be at Borders.  They're made by Powerscore.  Order them online, either from Powerscore or (I believe) from Barnes & Noble online.  Forget the other books--these are all you will need.

Agreed, but I'd get them from Amazon since they qualify for free shipping and handling. The LRB helped me SO much, even though I already took the Testmasters course a year ago. I don't plan on getting the Logic Games bible, but if you haven't taken a course or have no clue on how to set the games up, I'd get it.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How many points would be worth it?
« on: October 17, 2005, 08:06:58 PM »
If I score anything in the 160's, it'll be worth it. A 160 sounds so much better than a 159, even if it's just a one point difference.

Recommendations / does the author of your LOR really matter that much?

Personal Statement / UC Hastings LEOP essay
« on: September 23, 2005, 02:35:39 PM »
For those of you applying LEOP, what are you planning on writing your statement on? I have a fairly good idea of what I'll be focusing mine on but I'm not quite sure what direction to take it in.
