If this is difficult for you, law school might not be a good choice. From what I've heard, it's harder than being able to count to 35.


Oh for fuck's sake, I already have a 170 on the LSAT and I've taken multivariable calculus. It is just something that doesn't come naturally to me, and I've always suspected I have dyscalculia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyscalculia.

I don't see why this watch is so ridiculous, especially for the highly neurotic.. like me. In December, I used a regular analog watch and my hand slipped slightly whenever I was pushing in the crown and my time ended up being off by 2 minutes. The price is pretty ridiculous for what it is, but a watch like this can provide assurance that mistakes in time tracking won't happen on test day. It's not for everyone, but I think I could benefit from this.

I bought one, so what, haters gonna hate. I think its cool. It will always remind me of that period in my life where I studied for a test for almost a year lol. I'm going to frame it when I graduate from lawl school.

I'm gonna go to Target today to buy a watch with a rotating bezel. If you just rotate it to 0 wherever the minute marker is there shouldn't be a problem.

i used a timex watch i got for 30 bucks at target. it had a large analog face. i found the large face to be very helpful in timing with the long hands and such.

I don't think it's weird at all. Pacing is something that many people find difficult on the LSAT.


Protip: Wear a normal wristwatch. Reset it to 12:00 after every section. You don't need an AUTHENTIC, LSAC APPROVED ACTION WATCH WITH 50% MORE HOT LSAT ACTION.



So I should buy a shitty watch that I'll never wear again rather than an LSAT-specific watch I'll never wear again?

For some of us, the decision is a pretty easy one. None of my actual watches can be set that quick (Citizen), so paying a whopping 27 dollars for something that helps me immensely on tests is well worth it. Do what you want, but don't act like you understand every possibly scenario.

I am considering ordering this because I think it'll help a lot when considering pacing. Would this be allowed?



there are cheaper lsat watch sites that do the same thing. http://lsatwatch.webs.com/apps/webstore/

you can also pick a background.



Can't recommend this one enough.
