Studying for the LSAT / Re: Logic Games Bible vs. TM games techniques
« on: September 06, 2005, 03:16:58 PM »
Usually b/c I have no idea, but I've been working on past logic games problems with the TM techniques.

I currently have the following letters on file from the last admissions cycle:

1) letter from my graduate student instructor/TA, who knows me and my academic work very well;


2) letter from a well known/respected professor, whom I've met with once or twice but does not know me as well, but wrote my letter with the help of my graduate student instructor/TA who does know me well.

I had a FT summer internship in the Capitol (Sacramento) and my supervisor is willing to write me a letter of recommendation. Since I'm reapplying this cycle, I'm thinking of swapping one of my current LOR's for this new one. However, I just graduated and I'm not sure if I should stick with my academic LOR's or opt for one from a work supervisor. Any thoughts?

Studying for the LSAT / Logic Games Bible vs. TM games techniques

Are the techniques in the LGB different enough from the techniques taught in the TM course to justify buying it? I usually get +/- 5 wrong in the games section and I'm not sure if it's worth shelling out an additional $45 if all I need is more practice with the tricks I already know.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: TM Online Diagnostics

If I remember correctly, one of the TM books has several complete LR sections that you can substitute as your 5th section. I did this for a few tests and I was very glad I did b/c when I took the real LSAT a year ago I ended up getting a 3rd LR as my experimental.

LR is easily my weakness, and the techniques I learned from taking a Testmasters course don't seem to really work. I mainly have problems with question type 2 (and 2N's and 2S's). Is the Powerscore LR bible any good for this? I've been going through my old TM materials but it seems I'm still getting the same number of LR questions wrong on diagnostics (approx. 18 per test, putting me in the 159 range). So.. is the LR bible effective and worth getting? I'm planning on studying 2-3 hours/day and re-taking the LSAT in December 2005.

Law School Admissions / Last Semester Workload
« on: January 24, 2005, 12:31:09 AM »
Do law schools care about what you do your last semester in college? I'm already done with my degree requirements and am doing another semester "for fun". I'm currently enrolled in 10 units but plan on dropping a class, so I'll have 6 units. Will this negatively affect my chances of admission because I'm not working as hard as I could be? TIA!
