LSAT and Being Bored vs. Being Excited
« on: June 29, 2005, 05:46:28 PM »
How many of you here actually can pump yourselves up enough to get excited about studying for this test?  Any methods or ways you go about this?  Is it all a mindframe?  You see, I want to basically find out how you all can study consistently and intently with this withouth slipping up due to being bored?  Or do you ever take breaks or put it off because it is simply just not that fun?  Any and all thoughts are welcome here...

I thought it was ridiculously boring when I was studying on my own.  When I took my prep course I started to find it more interesting, and I began to absolutely love it once I got a handle on games.

Did you study outside of class with people you met in the class?

Nope, just on my own. 

The only time I had trouble concentrating on it after I started the class was when I was in London (which is, I believe, understandable).  So I just decided to put the books down and enjoy the city...(duh).

Anyone else?  How do you get excited for the studying process?

I found it useful to try to get excited about the schools i might be able to attend if i got the scores I want.  Or the money you would more likely make coming out of top schools (if money is what does it for you..).

Put it this way, in many ways a differences of maybe 5-6 points on this test could (i'm not saying necessarily is) worth 10's of thousands of dollars, if not more, in terms of scholarships/finaid or in a higher percentage chance to get a job with a higher salary.  Think of the amount you are earning per hour of study time in this regard, and treat it like a job.

Columbia and NYU are my driving forces  ;D
