Studying for the LSAT / LSAT Study Partners- Online
« on: September 17, 2008, 08:40:31 PM »
Well I'm scheduled to take the LSAT in December, and I'm actually studying for it as we speak.  I just figured out that I think it might be good to discuss the test with other people as the test date approaches.  Ya know, everything and anything LSAT.  So, if anyone else is studying for the upcoming test and wants to study/talk about this test, please post your AIM screen name and I will give you an IM here soon.  Good luck all!

Thanks guys for all your work.  Site= very useful.

i'm hovering in the 165-168 range with approx. one month left, and I have about 13 practice tests left.  I started with a score of 158 on my first ever PT (although it wasn't a "cold" score, I've been studying with several different LSAT books)

My target score is 170+, ideally 171 or above.

I've done about 20 full PTs (most of them timed), and have yet to break 170 (my highest was 168)

frankly, I can't see myself suddenly scoring 3 or 4 points higher.

my LR and RC scores have been stalled since I've been focusing on my arch nemesis LG for about a month and as for LG...welll...

I'm still struggling to finish all 4 games on a consistent basis. (-6 to -7 seems to be the norm, since I end up guessing on 4 or 5 questions).

will I ever be able to break 170 and even beyond?  I'm losing faith in myself and everytime I try to pick myself up from the rubbles and open another PT I hear voices in my head saying "what's the point"?

I need some words of encouragement.  please help!

First of all, that's a great starting score of 158 for your very first test!  I think you are in a perfect position to hit the 170 mark for sure.  You're in the 4th quarter right now, one month to go!  It's officially crunch time.  Step it up a notch or three and hit the questions as hard as ever!  Now's the time and you can do it.  Best of luck!

Past, present and future...

for example: talking about what led you up to wanting to get into law school, what you are doing now, and what you want to do with your degree...

best of luck!

Hey people, so I just found out that I have a 30 minute screening interview tomorrow over the phone with a pretty large NYC firm.  I've had quite a few interviews, but I've never done any over the phone.  Any suggestions or advice?  Any ideas for good questions?

Smile when you're talking on the phone...

people can sense the upbeat attitude when you do that...

good luck!

december test be hardest ever.

Do you know why that is the case JF?

Also, are old LSAT materials and practice tests from a couple years ago just as good as new ones in the book stores, or should you only look at new material?
