February 2013 LSAT Study Group

Postby LSAT Blog » Mon Oct 22, 2012 2:17 pm

Since the February LSAT will be here before we know it, I figured it'd be good to start a thread for folks specifically preparing for this test to meet, offer advice, motivate each other, discuss study plans and strategies, etc.

If you're taking the February LSAT, keep everyone posted on your progress and find study partners here!

I'll chime in from time to time to offer study advice, tips, answer questions, etc.

Hey LSAT B
Let me kick off it out by asking you a question. In your LG videos (in & out games) I have notice you use a doted arrows. Why is that ---->


Thank you

Checking in, since I think I'll take December and retake in Feb...

Are any of you applying for this cycle? or everyone for 2014?

I use dotted arrows to represent rules where "or" appears in the necessary condition of a conditional statement. Hope this helps!

Here for a retake in February 2013. Was shooting for December but my PT scores aren't in a good place. Did anyone else already submit applications this cycle?

That is similar to what I am doing. I've submitted all of my applications already but hoping that February will be a game changer for $ or any waitlists.

I'm taking the Febrary 2013 LSAT. I just started hardcore studying a couple weeks ago even though I've been looking over the material on and off for a while. How is everyone going about studying? I'm doing self-prep with the Powerscore Bibles and a lot of practice tests. I'm going to start taking one a week every saturday starting this week until test day. Good luck everyone!

I was going to do Oct 2012 but I realized I am not ready. I put it on for Dec. but that looks like a long shot to be real! I'm still scoring in the 150s. I'm lucky if I get it up to to 170 but starting November I'll be studying all day and night! Though, I don't know how I will fare with the holidays. I guess it's just some sacrifice eh?

If anybody wants to study partner PM me and want to have study sessions in LA - PM me as well.

If I take the Feb LSAT the only school that'll take applications still is Yale. So, I don't think I will.

I love more on the North East LA going towards Glendale.

February will be second time around for me (last took it five years ago). Going to give this another shot. Just started LSAT Blog study plan and so far so good (I needed a detailed plan laid out for me due to my work/family schedule). Good luck everyone.

I am planning to take June 2013 LSAT. But I would like to join you guys.


Since I am in a full-time job I would need to start a little early.

1>Motivation
My biggest issue is motivation . Sometimes I am totally motivated but sometime I simply lag behind.
I assume there might people around here facing the same problem. I'll have to tackle this issue. Any suggestions would be appreciated

2>Logic games and logical reasoning
I've learnt it the hard way that -- more than trying to solve the problem what is important is applying the concepts you've learnt. Once you are at ease with the concept and its application, you can modify it according to your requirement.

3>Reading Comprehension
I have no idea what to do with it guys. I am trying to read a few articles here and there but what kind of an impact it would have. I know I miss questions and I have to find a way get them correct.

How do you guys plan on studying? I scored fairly well, but below my PT range and I want to retake. Considering I've already gone through prep books etc, is there anything you guys recommend?

was PTing pretty high and absolutely bombed the oct. test to the point of not even wanting to take it again (still in disbelief how bad I did when I thought I was gonna do good), but I think I'm gonna man up, retake in feb. and roll the dice and still apply this cycle

Definitely in the same boat as you. For motivation, check this site's forums for all the sucess stories just before leaving work. Hopefully that will empower you to put in 3-4 hours after work.
Also get into a routine and set up a schedule of what you will do! If you know that each day you will complete and review 3 old games and 2 new ones, drill (w/review) 15-25 LR questions and complete one RC, I think you will find you are more likely to study even on days you dont feel like it because its become a routine, and because you know there is an end in sight as opposed to just studying aimlessly.

For reading comp, I read something on this site (I think it was this site anyway) that has helped with confidence if nothing else. Try starting your prep by reading the passages and answers untimed. With the extra time you have, underline, circle star, or somehow mark the part of each pasage that led you to select the answer you did. I've also been writing in the margins what I thought at the time about that particular part that led me to think it was relevant to answer the question I used it for. Finally check your answers...twice! Once right after you've done the section, but an hour or two later (esp for the ones you got incorrect) go back to it. Look at the notes you made in the margin and to the parts of the passage that led you to select your answer. Do they still make sense!? If not, try again to link the passage to the correct answer. THE ANSWER IS ALWAYS IN THE PASSAGE! We just have to be find it!!

Again, this was someone else's idea, not mine. Just thought it may help!
