Take any advice Ruskie is sending your way. Shes a Boalty (a.k.a Berkeley Law). In regards to LSAT score, keep taking the practice exams... take every one of them. The games will become rediculously easy... (I started at 4-5 right per sections and ended up with only getting 1 or 2 at most wrong). The RC will always be a challenge, i wish i could give you advice on it but i bombed it (16 out of 28). LR requires a lot of practice but eventually it becomes second nature. Keep fighting, dont get frustrated, stay relaxed, have a good laugh everyday and you will do just fine. - Mikey
Ah ha! Finally a Russian thread!!!I'm not Russkie by birth, but by marriage... though to be fair, we did meet when I was purchasing my ticket to Moscow via cell-phone at a cafe; I studied Russian in college for a few years before I met my husband.So I take it your main focus, W.R., is Immigration law? I'm interested in trade, specifically oil law... with regards to Russia/US relations... hence why I started down this language path in the first place...Kaest4: It's said that Russian is a hard language to learn, but I had an easier time with Russian than I did with Italian (and that was after four years of Spanish)... I think it depends on the person. What I liked was the different alphabet - it was like learning a secret code, or like how kids passed notes in code, with the letters all scrambled... We can't use cyrillic here? It worked on another forum I'm on... here's my mandatory test of Cyrillic:(здесь?)
Thanks, I looked into a study abroad language program in Russia, maybe I could take a summer semester before I start LS in the fall of 2007.
