Studying for the LSAT / Re: Feb Results
« on: February 27, 2009, 12:31:18 PM »
Wow! I haven't been on this discussion board in ages. Anyway, I decided to check in because I took the Feb. test and I was wondering if people started getting their scores yet?! I guess not. Last time I took the test (Dec. '06) scores didn't start coming out until after 5:00 EST (several days before the listed date of arrival). I got my score around 7:00 EST.  If they do come out today (and I sure hope they do--so I can get this over with) it probably won't be until later. I think.  ???

This is torture. On the other hand, though, I really don't want to rush it.

Good luck to all of you waiting.  ;)

I guess it depends on how quickly you learn and retain the material.  I would say, though, that you need more time than you've given yourself.  BUT if that is the only thing you are focusing on, there might be a chance in hell for you yet.  ;)

p.s. It took me months and I still didn't get it.  :'(

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Kaplan is great

Now I'm scared to take Kaplan.  Actually I've always been scared to take Kaplan, but it's the only prep-testing service that fits my schedule. Hopefully, I'll take something(s) away from the class that will be useful on test day.

"Embrace the uncertainty."  I wish I could.  I don't want to graduate and not have a job, I have rent and bills to pay (unfortunately, I don't live at home so after I graduate I need to make ends meet).  However, I will take it all in stride. 

Thanks for providing the link.  I've never been to my school's career office (always thought I knew what I was going to do with my life), but I will definitely check them out when we go back for spring semester.  Thanks for posting the link to your internship, I'm going to check into that now.

OP: You are putting a lot of pressure on yourself.  You scored in the high 140s, and you want to get to the high 150s, and you want to do it in two months.  I believe that we can do anything that we put our minds too, but at the same time we have to set realistic goals.  I postponed the September test to take it in December because I thought two months would have been ample time to study -it wasn't!  Do I regret taking it, no, but at the same time I wish I would not have put that much pressure on myself to do the unthinkable.  Now I'm stuck with a suck ass score, and exploring other options.  I'm still going to law school just not next fall.  Maybe you should take a year off and work (lovebutton had a good idea about the public defender intern), or maybe even go to grad school, go teach abroad (these are all the things I'm considering).  Just don't pressure yourself and think that in two months you'll get the score you'll want.  What happens if the score comes back the same or only a little higher?? 

Take some time off, and trust me I know how you feel.  Coming to this decision to take a year off from school was NOT easy, but I have to do what I know is right.  Whatever decision you make Good luck to you.  ;)


Good for you, survivor!  That is definitely a tough decision to make, but your time off will only enrich your law school experience.  We're young!  Now is the time!

 

Thanks!  It was a difficult decision, but it's for the best.  I have no idea what I'm going to do with my life for the next year or two, but I'm going to kick ass at whatever it is.  How did you find your public defender internship? That sounds like an exciting (and rewarding) experience.

I thought it was the general concensus that Rittandocho is a flame...

A flame?  This is news to me!

It's over for you. The sooner you accept this, the sooner you can look into other options.

Hope this helps,

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! You got that score up to a 179!!! I'm proud of you!  It must feel really good, I bet you feel like the smartest man on the planet. :)  So where are you off to now?  You're pretty much in anywhere.  ;)

Aww thanks, Joe!  I appreciate that.  I wanted me to do well too.  Guess I need to work harder for the next one.  I'm just BLOWN because now I feel like I have nothing else to do with my life.  :'(


So are you going to take the FEB test and apply this cycle? Take a prep course again?  Apply next cycle? It sucks. I was so set in taking and doing well on the december test.

I froze on the games. Cancelled. Now i have to take a powerscore again and apply next cycle. Hard work does not always pay off. I guess working smart does. I have learned that the hard way.

With school and a full-time job taking a class will be a lot, and I really want to devote a lot of time to studying, not studying, school, and this kiss-me-ass job.  So I'll prep over the summer and take the test in September.  God, I've low days before, but I think this is the absolute LOWEST!

However, congratulations to all of you who did well...conrats on your 171 lonewolf...YOU DID IT!!! I'm proud of all of you...this test is a b^[email protected]#, so be proud.  :-*
