So why not go to harvard? lol he was Skull and Bones at Yale. Oh well, I do not think it matters now. He got hired in Middlesex DA office at 32. He went into law school at 29[/quote]

What are you trying to imply in regards to age comment? That he is too old. lol

How is drilling coming along?

We are becoming a family here.

We should have big Skype party lol

Drilling is going well. No exceptional breakthroughs or anything though. I actually weirdly enjoy LG, so it's not even too tedious.

I'm down for a waiters' Skype/tiny chat (because I'm lazy and don't want to have to get a Skype haha)

Oh that is the main reason. Companies are profitable and the Dow has soared, yet, there is no real need to hire people. Milking people for all its worth. But again, this is not wrong, because legally, the shareholders and owners of the corporation are doing what they are supposed to.

Ethically, that is a whole other can of worms.

How many games did you do? I enjoy them as well. I can literary spend a whole day doing games.

When i drilled them, and finished up my last set of 40's, i wanted to dig into 50's sooo badly.

Well I was in class until past 6 and then I had to cook because I'm spending too much money eating out all the time. Those are my excuses and I'm sticking to them!

Would anyone say there are many differences between 50s vs 60s RC passages?

I'm putting 110 hours of prep into the next 10 days

8-11am - Games (reviewing the videos)
12-4pm- PT
5p-6:30p- Review PT
6:30p-9p - Games

What you think?


Nicolena there isn't a big different. I'll say the biggest difference in new exams is there seems to be one really long passage either the third or fourth and also there seems to be a passage with eight damn questions

Sorry about the run on sentence my m key is messed up

Bad idea. Cramming doesn't work for the LSAT but trying to do it is almost guaranteed to cause horrible burnout and greatly diminishing returns with a schedule like that. 13 hours a day focused on LSAT with only two hours of break time is waaayy too much to be a productive use of that much time.

This depends a lot on where you are in your prep as well.

I could do games all day every day, and nothing. I don't get burnt out. Reading comprehension as well. It doesn't take a toll on me. LR on the other hand does.

Like i said in one of my earlier posts, LSAT has become so repetitive for me that its nothing. If i don't do something LSAT related it feels weird to me. I will spent the whole Thursday and Friday studying the same way your are. Literary. Then PT. 2 PT'S-3 PT'S over the next three days.

I work full time, and go to school so i love days when i can devote to studying as you described. Go to the library and just study. Thats a dream day.

Does anyone know of a game like pt62 game 3?

@withoutapaddle why not just study and if you feel like it's starting to burn you out take a break. Know your limit. Like miracle said, if games don't effect you then that shouldn't really burn you out. I could do games all day. It just feels like I'm doing a puzzle/Sudoku.

This is okay, but for the last 2-3 days before the test take it easy. You want to go in rested on test day.

I'm finally feeling better. I had to take the last two days off because I have/had the flu, however I'm making up the time I missed this weekend by doing 6-7 hours of prep a day and back to back PTs on Sunday and one PT on Saturday. I've been studying hard since August 1st and I am NOT letting the fucking flu stop me from getting my goal.
