On an LSAT-related note:

I haven't bought any Cambridge packets. I'm typically -2 for each LR section. My three weakest areas are Strengthen, Weaken, and Parallel Reasoning. I'm thinking to buy all three packets and also the hardest questions one. Or should I just stick to PTs and whole timed sections? Please advise.

He's wrong, but its funny how people react to logic games with "WTF NO."

Although I showed RC to my friend who took the MCAT and she was like "awww only four passages?"


and Hillz, trust me I've read that, but I thought 'medical supplies' would be more stuff for a pre-existing condition like asthma or something. I suppose it makes sense.


No, lady, you can do what you want! :D At my center, they didn't bother looking at what anybody brought in. I'm sure that's not the case everywhere, but...I don't think they'll care much what kind of pills you bring. You can even bring a pouch (for hygiene stuff) and they're not gonna look in.

I find Ticonderoga Blacks everywhere in my life now. I even carry them with me at work and prefer to use them in meetings versus Pilot G-2s.

I'd buy those 3 packets since you know exactly what your weak areas in and I'm guessing you'll see some progress/higher comfort level after drilling those. Still do PTs, but add drilling.

I like to imagine that this rule is in place because a test taker used a clickity-clickerific mechanical pencil next to someone who snapped.

never in my life have i heard of a standardized test that didnt allow for them lol

btw, just worked on section 2 and 4 from june's LSAT... holy shit. I thought the LR in 2 was incredibly difficult. Probably one of the hardest LR's I've ever done. IDK if section 3 was easier, but fuck man.

Yeah, my husband was a CS major and got a perfect on the MCAT. So, he's basically my own personal MLSAT forum. Oh well, at least I'm better at cooking. And I look better in a dress.

i always thot it was something much more mundane, like the scantron wouldnt read mechanical pencils for one reason or another.

but i hope it was similar to the hypo posited by grey:

click...click click click...

*shakes to test for lead*

click...click.....................click

person next to mechanical pencil-er: "omg that m pencil is gonna drive me nuts..."

*looks over, annoyed. person w/ m pencil is now erasing furiously. wonders if m pencil-er is trying to start a fire*

click...click...click...

*more shakes. nods head, as if visibly signifying that pencil still has lead*

*erases furiously again, realizing diagram on game 2 is incorrect*

neighbor: "did this person even study? why are they erasing so much on games? dont they know thats a big no no...wait, am i messing up this game? am i missing something? SHOULD I BE ERASING!?!?!?"

*looks over, sees m pencil-er tapping foot at a rate of ~100 taps/minute*

*anger is growing, neighbor is visibly shaken by the amount of clicks and eraser noises*

CLICK...CLICK...

:evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

diiggidy wrote:I've recently decided to go to graduate school before law school as well. I'm in my final year of undergrad at a top 15 engineering school, and am planning on getting my M.S. in Electrical Engineering. I've done research with a professor here in undergrad, and will probably continue working with him as an RA. My reasoning is that I'd like to get more engineering experience, and this will give me time to decide if I truly want to go to law school. Also a M.S. in E.E. would be very valuable for patent law, which is what i'm interested in getting into anyways. However, it's going to be pretty difficult to balance applying to graduate school and fellowships and taking the LSAT at the same time. I also need to take the GRE, and will probably end up taking it around Sept. 15th. I'm currently averaging around 168-169 on PTs, with a goal of 174 but timing is also an issue for me still. I'm wondering if I should continue studying (I've pretty much been strictly studying for the LSAT this summer) this hard with the hopes of taking in Sept., or delay the LSAT and focus on applying to grad school. My scores have been between 167-170 for over a month now. Any advice?


why law bro? you can make bank with an MS in EE.



True, but I could also make a lot of money as a patent attorney as well. But it's really not about the money for me. I've had internships and done research and all, and just don't think it's really the right career for me. I'm considering taking the patent bar in the winter and then I could work for a firm as a patent agent (they make more than engineers typically anyways) during grad school, and then go from there.

So not spamming or anything but I found them on Instragram, its a LSAT prep Iphone and Android app, they have a free 14 day trail of their course for $1 and they send you two free watches when you sign up.

Again, I'm not spamming. I just found them on instagram :)
