I am studying the LSAT again
« on: July 02, 2012, 12:46:36 PM »
I went through some books I used when I took the LSAT for the first time years ago.  I remember back then I found Powerscore especially helpful.  I must've taken dozens of practice tests.  I am thinking about going through all the books and practice tests again and seeing what else is out there today.  It's been about 7 years since I took the LSAT for the first time.  Although I cancelled my first test, the second time around I scored a 166 and that helped me get into some law schools, including the University of Southern California Gould School of Law where I attended before I dropped out.

That's not a question. Sounds more like boasting.

My goal now is to go to Boston University and get a second bachelor's degree.  This time in economics.  While I am doing that, I'll study for the LSAT again and prepare for another run at law school.  I have a feeling if I were to take the LSAT now, cold turkey, I'd get at least a 160 or 161.  Although I've studied a little bit the past couple of weeks.  For example, the other day I did one of the analytical reasoning games and got 5 out of 7 correct.  On the actual test, when I got the 166, I think I aced that section.  The section that troubled me the most, if I am not mistaken, was logical reasoning.  I got like 22 out of 26 correct on both sections.  Something like that.  So I would have gotten something like 24 out of 24 on the games section, 44 out of 52 on the logical reasoning sections, and maybe 21 out of 25 on the reading comprehension section.  I don't remember exactly.  Unfortunately, my LSAC membership expired and I can't access my LSAT anymore.

I'm just curious, why bother with a second B.A., especially at a private school like BU? It'll cost you tens of thousands of dollars and is entirely unneccesary for the purposes of law school admissions. If your goal is to go to law school anyway, why put it off for another couple of years? I don't know you and I have no idea what your personal situation is, but would you maybe be better off spending that time preparing for the LSAT and applying to law school?

Well, Roald, I want to get back into the swing of things.  I have been out of work for a couple years and I want to get back to work.  I can make tons of money.  Why do I want to go to BU?  I like to learn.  I like to achieve.  I'd like to have sex with women in Boston.  And I think it would help me get back into the swing of things instead of walking around aimlessly in Bangor, central Maine.  It's not necessary, but I think it could be fun.

Ok, will do.  I tried to fill out the Common Application for BU yesterday, but apparently it's passed the deadline.  So what I am going to do is call BU and ask how I can apply.  Because I have a bachelor's degree, I'll be a transfer applicant.  I'm looking at starting college again spring semester 2013.  I want to study economics.  I plan to explore the farming industry and study for the LSAT again.  I am unsure about the farming industry at the moment.  I am an '80s metal guitarist, too, so I bet $100 I'll dedicate my time to practicing guitar.  And I'd like to start making pornography.  Perhaps BU offers a class on the the porn industry and I could take sex ed at the same time...LOLOLOLOLOL!
