Question 1

What the hell did you just read?


The RC strategy I've adopted (from the Trainer) has made me look at the text in such a superficial manner that I barely remember the passage an hour after the test. All about structure and short term memory.


Haha that's my problem. That's why I get all the inference questions wrong. Usually I have that what are you asking me look on my face. I have no clue how to make one since I don't remember...

Alcohol will definitely be involved.


I'm going straight to the on-campus bar/restaurant after the test.

Anyone know how to balance time on the LG

I am either being super lazy and going with the first choice that "seems" right, to save time, or I take forever and get them all right.

Any idea on balance?

Depends on the question type. For ones which can be solved by basic inferences of by referring to diagrams (e.g. a question asking "which person must go before M" when you know that S is first) absolutely pick the right answer and move on. For ones which benefit from hypos (e.g. local questions which would require drawing new inferences), I tend to go through and eliminate ALL answer choices on the off chance that I made an incorrect assumption. If I end up with two 'correct' answers, I know that I have to go back and check my work.

Edit: Also, if I am pressed for time, I will go with the first answer which I believe to be correct. I figure that, statistically, taking a 50:50 shot on one question and having time to answer another is better than spending all of that time on one question.

I'm in the same situation; I can get them all right if I take 10 mins a game -- but there just isn't that much time.

What has helped me is doing the 'just right' amount of work: i.e., not drawing six (slighty) different diagrams before diving into the questions, not developing unnecessary HYPOs; and trusting my gut enough to know when I've found the right answer choice (allowing me to move on to the next question).

You should definitely sign up for the mailing list of doom for the fee waivers. It can easily save anyone hundreds of dollars in app fees, and many schools don't take requests and only allow few waivers via CRS (aka mailing list of doom). I guess you might just really value the lack of spam THAT much though, haha.


I applied to 12 schools. havent paid for 1


I have LSAC fee waiver. :mrgreen:

Lol well truth is there are some GREAT mexican-style burgers here... But I want, like, an enormous, probably mostly uncooked southern burger with all of the fixings.

You're both awesome to oblige, though! Dinner-Skype party when I'm back in the states.

+1 for the as-rare-as-possible-please order

Speaking of Skype, when is everyone planning on taking 71? We could all go over it together Skype for some last-minute pre-test camaraderie
