I found the Susan Estrich "How to Get into Law School" book to be inspirational, you might want to pick that up and at least read the LSAT chapter.

The heights by great men reached and kept / Were not attained by sudden flight, / But they, while their companions slept, / Were toiling upward in the night.

--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Read this quote everyday and watch Rocky and Hoosiers back to back on LSAT eve.

On the morning of the test, drink a few red bulls, do some shadow boxing, then cruise into the test center parking lot blaring "Eye of the Tiger." You'll be ready to kick some A$$.

I have great faith in fools; self-confidence my friends call it

-Edgar Allan Poe
quote Stanley J. Watson III
you are doomed in the fated sense, but that's completely irrelevant because that's only from the viewpoint of someone who is not constrained by time. since you are temporal, for all intents and purposes you have the power to change your future

My sister knows a professor at UC Hastings..... she set up a call with him for me because thats where I really want to go. This professor is really crazy... wakes up at 3 every day to run, and get started on his day early. Anyhoo, I asked how he studied for the LSAT and he said "I quit my job a month before, and studied for 8 hours a day straight. If being a lawyer is what you really wanna do, then do it."

He made perfect sense.

Anyways, Nietzche read till his eyes bled........
