Legally Blonde- Are We Making This Harder on Ourselves?
« on: June 23, 2005, 03:02:00 AM »
I'm sure there are members to this board who have seen the movie Legally Blonde...well, I've seen it once and if I remember correctly, doesn't Reese Witherspoon study literally for about one week or so for the LSAT and then ace it?  Granted, she hired a private tutor and worked to the max on those days, but has anyone heard of anything like this ever happening?  When I think about this movie, I wonder if we are all studying too much for the LSAT and maybe an intensive 1-3 week study session would work?

Does this mean that you are considering doing a video essay with yourself drinking pina coladas at the pool and perfuming your application, also?  :P ;D

And by the end of your 1st year, you will be trying a murder case. Of course, this only applies if you were a Hawaian Tropic model like Elle.

The first one was semi-entertaining, but the second one really sucked. Seriously with the whole 'Bruiser's Bill' and all that nonsense. They should have made her head legal counsel for a strippers union or something exciting.

I'm pretty sure they know that...

Is it a good movie?  I'm thinking of renting it.

Yeah that's great...now that I think about it, in a way it does kind of lighten the mood about the whole admissions process, I'd say it's worth a viewing for sure.

I watched Legally Blonde in the middle of my LSAT studying, and it was incredibly discouraging.  She went from not even knowing what the LSAT was to scoring a 146 or so to getting a 179 for real in a matter of weeks.  I found myself very irritated by that.
Whee!: Georgetown ($$), UVA ($), UMich, NYU, Indiana-Bloomington ($$, W), Duke ($), WashU ($, W)
Boo!: Yale
Sigh..: Columbia, Harvard
