I'll be honest, I'm not the person that wrote that first comment that you have on here on May 8. Someone else must have used my name to sign that message. I didn't see it until now because I don't check my LSN that often. I would, however, like to echo what he/she wrote, in that you should remain optimistic and continue striving for your goals. I wish you the best of luck.
hey...I don't actually have a 180 (yet) I have just been playing around on here to see what would get me in where. I take the June LSATs and my highest in practice so far has been a 178, sorry to be misleading.
I called them up and asked - several sent me forms to fill out proving that I'm broke. Some schools just gave them to me by mail. Good luck.
hey! sorry that it has taken me so long...i haven't been on the sight much lately. I took the kaplan course to help me with my score...in the course of the class my LSAT went from a 160 to a 175 (on in class testings) and when I practiced on my own I peaked at 178, and never went below a 167. I think the thing that helped me the most was just practicing individual sections of the LSAT. This is good because practicing individual questions is rarely realistic and often discouraging. practicing whole tests is time consuming and tiring. I also would really reccomend writing down a lot of stuff on questions, especially ones you aren't sure on. for example, on LR sections if the questiong asked for "all of these could be true except" I would write a T on the letter choice for all of the ones that could be true instead of just x-ing them out. This made a big difference for me. Now when I go back to check questions, I know why I was left with 2 particular choices or whatever. Also, if you can't take a class for $$ or time reasons, the Kaplan online instructor is really engaging and easy to listen to. I liked being in the classroom and all but I sometimes thought the online instructor was better. sorry this is so long but one more thing: Something that always helped me to keep from getting nervous on test day is to think in your mind that you are much smarter than the test makers. Think about it..why are they making tests? well they probably couldn't make it as lawyers. They are bitter and boring. If you see every question as a battle of wits between you and the testmaker, and you know that you are smarter then you know you can win, and its not as much of a big deal. It is more of a game or a contest and less of a test. hope this helps and good luck. By the way, I took the test on monday (june 12) so I will know my real score soon...so sometime the first week in july my score on this sight should be accurate.
I'm sorry to hear the last school didn't accept you. But if you look at it this way, this cycle you will be a pro on how to apply to Law school! A friend of mine suggested calling the admissions offices of the schools who rejected you, and asking what specifically in your application put them off from offering you admission. Usually if you are really polite, and make it clear that you are not bitter, and just trying to improve your aplication, the are willing to help. I hope your LSAT score improves enough to get you into your top choice!! Best of luck!
thanks for the kind words! goood luck
Hey, thanks alot for the kind words of encouragement. I really appreciate it. Yeah, the LSAT can be very scary.....but just give it your all b/c in the end that's all you can do. But it'll be well worth the "sweat & tears". Stay head strong....which I'm sure you will and you'll go far in your pursuance of the law profession. Be Easy.
If I were you, and if you are really struggling on logic games, you should pick two of the four games and really focus on them. This should allow you to get most of these questions correct, since you will have about 30 minutes to complete 2 games. The rest you can guess on. If you apply this strategy well, you can end up getting 65-70% of the section correct. You should be able to get about 90% of the 2 games you focus on correct if you practice enough, and even guessing you will get 2, 3 or 4 right out of the remaining 2 games. This is if you are REALLY struggling on the games and no matter how much you practice you are still only getting a few right out of the 22-24 questions. If you have the time and patience to focus and practice, you can get your games scores up. This is the most learnable section IMO. Best of luck!
Logic Games are something a lot of people really struggle on. Happy to hear that this advice helped. If you already know that you just can get through all 4 games, there is no reason to beat yourself up. Mental energy you waste stressing will carry over and slow you down on other sections. Any idea how you did? Best of luck this cycle, get those apps out as early as you can.
Thanks for the congrats. Touro accepted me early last week. They never notified me that I went complete or anything.
Hey Barbara, Thanks and good luck to u too. i have been calling them but there is still no decision. i do hope we both get in as well.
Hey, thanks for the congrats. I actually did withdraw as soon as I was sure, which was a few months ago. I am just not too big on updating fully until after the cycle. I wish you the best of luck with your decisions!
Yes, I just was accepted on Tuesday. Sent in deposit. Hope you hear something soon. Good luck.
Hi thanks for the comment! Concerning the LSAT vs the SATs, I would suggest writting an addendum, and including SAT scores, which demonstrates that you are not a good standardized test taker. Then go further, and display through your undergrad grades, that the areas in the SAT which were weak, in real life were strong. I hope you get into your remaining school!!! Best of luck!
