Studying for the LSAT / Re: better under pressure?
« on: September 20, 2005, 05:36:28 PM »
Definitely.  There is a test mind lock that happens whenever the real event rolls around.  It happened in college, on the EIT, PE, and the first time I took the LSAT.  It's normal and helpful, and makes an 8 hour test seem like 1.

Studying for the LSAT / LR Bible: More harm than good.
« on: September 17, 2005, 06:37:47 PM »
Is it just me, or has studying the LR Bible caused you to slow down, overanalyze, and dissect every LR question.  I think I did better when I went on intuition.  I wish I'd never heard of a sufficent condition.

Now, I'm looking for conditional reasoning in the RC sections without thinking about it.

Studying for the LSAT / Any other anomalously high scores for LSAT # 21?
« on: August 27, 2005, 03:13:45 PM »
I practiced on #21 today, and got the highest score evar.  Is this test a known anomaly among the published lsats, or am I just that much of a damn genius?

old score is a 161.  I'm practicing in the 164 to 167 range.  Worth it to retake?

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Anyone else going to have a family with no income?

We just had our first kid two weeks ago.  My wife has quit work for the forseeable future, and I plan on applying for 2006.  There are four options for me. 
-Take on massive debt and neither of us work. (I hate this option).  aka the Nucular Option.
-Selling a resort property that I stumbled into, and will never be able to afford again (and take on debt for tuition).  aka the U of Maryland plan I.
-I go to school at night and take care of the kid/study during the day, and Wife supports us and lists us on her insurance.  We take on debt for tuition.  aka the U of Maryland plan II.
-I get a full ride scholarship and find a nice slack 40hr/week government job so I can work and go to school.  aka the Widener plan.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Likelyhood of full ride to Widener, Harrisburg?

166 and a 3.0 got me mine.   ;D

What's the GPA to hold onto it?  If'n you don't mind me asking.

Incoming 1Ls / Likelyhood of full ride to Widener, Harrisburg?

I've read a few posts by people who have gotten a full ride to Widener.  If I'm not being too forward, I'd like to know what grades and lsat score it took to go for free.  I'm the sole breadwinner for the family, so actually paying for law school isn't an option.  However, I do live near Harrisburg and could go to the evening program. 

I took the LSAT and got a 161, graduated in 2001 with a 3.0 GPA in Civil Engineering from NC State, and recently got my PE license, but I'm bored as hell with engineering.  Civils are also a dime/12, so my salary outlook is fairly low unless I go out on my own.
