Studying for the LSAT / Re: Question regarding the games section
« on: May 25, 2005, 10:48:39 AM »
Thanks for the advice, just the other day i ordered the Logical Reasoning Bible the other day. I wish i would have taken Powerscore or Testmasters instead of Princeton Review. However, I am trying to stay in the 160's because I am aiming for University of Arizona, USD and St. John's. It just seems like  waste to see those 5 questions become a game of chance knowing that i could get them correct. But, you guys are right to focuse more on LR's. Thanks

Studying for the LSAT / Question regarding the games section
« on: May 25, 2005, 09:00:16 AM »
Currently, I am scoring in the high 150's with some 160's here and there. However, the thing that kills me the most is that I am unable to finish the games section. I get all of the answers right from the games questions that i do, but, i only do three games. Are there any suggestions you guys may have? I know if i can grab those extra 5 or 6 questions and get them right I will be in the 160's and above from now on. I am just suprised that people are able to finish all four games, maybe they can offer me some advice.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Should I postpone??!?!!

I think a lot of people gave good advice in regards to postponing or taking the June LSAT. Perhaps, the best advice was to see if your score would be good enough to get into the law school of your choice. A score in the low and middle 160's is not that horrible, as others may say, for example St. John's but it would be considered horrid for example Yale. Also, look at what you want to do with your law degree. If you want to be a public attorney, perhaps, amounting 90,000+ dollars in debt to go to Yale may not be the wisest option. In any case, I wish you the best of luck on whatever choice you make. A friend of mine that took the Feb. LSAT got a 163 and got a 90% scholarship to Chapman University, however, he wants to be a public defender.

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Re: Am I minority?

I personally think that there are a lot of people that have taken advantage of AA that may not deserve it. AA should be geared more towards first generation Americans. I am not just saying this because I am first generation Mexican American but because people of first generation face more adversity. From personal experience, I not have the luxury of having a parent that graduated from high school. My dad went up to 7th grade and my mother just finished 3rd grade. Not to mention, that no body in my household spoke English making the homework extra hard for my sister and myself. Can you imagine that I almost got kicked out of a Catholic school in first grade because i did not know enough English? Lastly, I apologize if this offends anybody but the system should be aimed at helping the people in need.

I think the perks associated with minority status decrease farther along the generation chain you are. However, i could be wrong. I am not sure, but i agree with the person that said "if you have to ask, then you probably are not." Furthermore, minority status is aimed at people that have faced adversity due to their minority status. First generation Americans face a greater challenge than a third or fourth generation, lets say Mexican American.

I have also begun to take an LSAT every day and review the missed questions as ESDAD mentioned. Seriously, a lot of people think that the big "jump" is over but that is false. For example, i started in the mid 150' and gradually rose to the high 150's and my instructor said "you made your jump." My most recent tests have been 163 and 162. So, worst case is that you squeeze two or three more points out of the LSAT. That is definitely worth the two weeks of hell you will endure to get ahead of a couple of people. Good luck.

I started at about 151-153 but i have progressed to 157-159. Furthermore, I am planning on taking the June LSAT hoping to get an extra two or three questions right to push me over the top.
Goal: 160+

I am also taking the June LSAT test and the recent exams look promising. As a tip for anybody that feels drained after 3 sections, you may like to put some starbursts in your pocket to consume a few during the 10-minute break to gain some energy.
