Pain

As I sit here typing this right now, I am sitting in a classroom with another friend of mine watching him study for the LSAT.  He’s sitting there thinking out loud.  I didn’t realize how painful it is just  to watch someone study for this bloody exam. 

How am I ever going to get into law school?  I think it’s time to start filling out applications for McDonalds.  Maybe I can get further ahead in the fast food industry than I can with Law.

Still LSATing

June 27, 2008 1 comment

So as some of you guys know, there was an LSAT exam that I was busy studying for for just about a month or so prior to it (June 16).  That date came and went.  I ended up paying 30 dollars and pushing my exam date up to the first week of October.  I was totally not ready.  Since then, I haven’t touched any practice exams or anything that has to do with the LSAT.  I’ve decided to take a break from it for a while.  I will probably begin studying again some time in July.  If I begin my studying sometime during the first week of July, I would have pretty much exactly three months to prep for it.  So that’s pretty much the plan for the time being. 

Other than that, this coming school year, I will be busy trying to boost my GPA to a level that law schools look at my application, laugh hysterically, pass it around the office so others laugh at it hard, if not harder and then throw it in the garbage.  Ive decided that instead of rushing to finish school, I am going to take my time and make sure I do everything properly.  Ive been getting a few second chances as of late and I really need to take advantage of these little opportunities I am getting.  After all, these days will never come back ever again.  So I might as well make the most of it.

This is going to be a longer and harder road than I had originally planned.  I guess I am still a naive BA student.

Some Good Advice For The LSAT

So last night I was studying for the LSAT and came home feeling bombed and depleted.  One of my biggest weaknesses is the Analytical Reasoning section. It’s the section where you are given a puzzle or a game to solve and you have to use diagrams.  I just can’t do them for whatever reason at this point in time.  So I came home early from studying and just randomly looked on youtube for some people posting advice for the LSAT exam.  I found this one girl who got a 173 or 172 on the exam…which is like amazing.  Just to put that in perspective, the guy who taught my LSAT prep course got no higher than 172.  She posts various videos regarding the LSAT and Law school and out of all the videos I viewed last night, she had the best.  She didn’t address a specific strategy for tackling the puzzles other than to just practice a lot, which makes sense.  So I am going to post two videos up for you and hopefully you will get some benefit out of them. 

Good luck and enjoy!
