[Choose as many as apply, but please be as specific as you can; obviously, we can't do everything.]
I'm slightly amending the OFFICIAL CHAT THREAD, to allow you to impact the format and direction of the group, and specify in detail what you'd like to discuss. It's your group, not ours. (And because I keep getting contacted with questions about it, consider this is the Official Liz info dump.)
I also need to change one of the details, as there are a couple AIM lSAT chats going on this Sunday; we don't all want to collide in the same room.AIM CHAT ROOM: LSD LSAT
6pm PST - 9pm EST
To find the chat room, go to: www.aol.com/community/chat
...and do a search for the room LSD LSAT
NOTE: If you have trouble finding us, by all means, send me or crooks an IM.LizPendensJDdirtycrookie
The prep test schedule, should you choose to follow it, is in the following linkhttp://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,65983.0.html
I've set up some poll options based on my own study this week to begin getting a sense of what you guys want out of the group and start a discussion. This is your group, after all. I'm just along for the ride. I chose some general topics that may be of common interest, especially for those just (re)starting as I am.
How do you want the chat discussion structured, if at all?
Do you want to use the set testprep schedule, or bring your own questions?
Do you want to focus on one type of section?
Do you want general discussion topics on section strategy?
Do you want to discuss specific questions from prep tests?
Do you just want to let things go where they go?
I've done these chat groups a couple of times, and have found some recurring problems. I'm going to suggest some ground rules that may make things work a little smoother.You don't have to follow the schedule to join in the chat:
If you wanna just hang and chillax, that'll be swell. I imagine the retakers, should any join, will much feel like thinking LSAT strategy just now.Join anytime:
You don't have to be there at a=every chat (hell, I'm not), or be there from the start of the session or stay till the end. Come and go as you pleaseRotating moderators:
I will not always be available, and I'll bet crooks won't either, and last time I did this for an entire span of time I burned out. You probably will too. Someone is needed to keep the ball rolling keep some some sense of order. We will need some volunteers. The time and the place will posted, but it's up to you to get there:
The chat invitation thing is a pain in the ass, especially now that it seems, according to chewy, that anyone with AIM can access a newly created chat room. We need an EXPERT!:
If anyone with solid knowledge of the LSAT who is/are able to explain specific test questions and/or strategy would be willing to participate, even if you wanna plug a business or product very subtly, will be most welcome. Let the person speak!
Try not to bust in while someone is holding the floor, especially if an explanation id being given. Let the questioner decide who to listen to.One at a Time, Please!
Let everyone have their turn in the sun before asking another.Try to stay relatively on point:
I'm not going to shake a ruler at you, but it can get very crazy and derail entirely if a topic dominates for too long or discussion topic the goes too afield.
We need an internet whiteboard for games discussions.
Does anyone know of opensource whiteboard software and/or enough ebspace to host it? I'll research this the coming week.
Here's a question for you all: What type of study/testing did you do this week?
