Oct. LSAT study buddies in Korea?

Postby caffedriade » Thu Jul 11, 2013 12:22 pm

Hey y'all,

I'm taking the Oct. LSAT in Seoul.

I think study groups would be extremely beneficial, no matter your level, for techniques and strategies definitely, but mental support most importantly!

Lemme know if anyone's down! We can start a Google group or Katalk chatroom, whatever...

Hey I'm currently at new york but considering the option of taking oct test at seoul.

Was wondering how you are managing your study plan? Are you taking any prep courses?

I took a course in March, which is useless if you don't drill -- so I'm drilling now! As of late, my focus has been on LR.

The worst part of the course is how questions are "wasted" and not allocated in a smart manner. Ideally the prep course would have all of the questions from PT 1-45 in there, but this is not the case most of the time.

Agreed, man. PTs below 45 because are all tainted with questions I've already seen before, FML. I tried to avert this by NOT doing the assigned drilling homework which was a fail because I just ended up not drilling with tainted PTs in the end. FFFFffffuuuuuuuuu

Did you take a course in Korea?

Do you guys know if the test or curve is any different for those taking the LSAT abroad? Considering taking it in Colombia.

Nah, bro...I am American, though.

Teaching English + studying for the LSAT = bye bye circadian rhythm

Info about international exams is really limited. The international test is usually an unreleased one from the U.S. though, or so I've heard.

Also heard LG is a bit harder on the international one (rumor from a friend who got into Yale this year).

Apparently, where you take it makes no difference...and it shouldn't.
The only real difference it would make that I can think of is for the June one in which you can take in the P.M. in the U.S.

I also heard the rumor that LG is harder and RC is easier in Korea, but I don't think there's enough info.

Btw, please let me know if anyone in Seoul wants a LSAT tutor!

That's an unsubstantiated myth. Actually, when you consider how the LSAT is designed and curved, there's no way it could be true.
