Agreed. Tho I might miss LGs bc i like doing them. Just not the other two sections.


Honestly I will miss the consistency in my life. I know I can sit down and complete a LG in under 8:45 and feel accomplished. I know I must finish a PT in 190 minutes. But writing a personal statement and completing the rest of the applications aren't structured like that, and I'm worried I'll let the distractions start to creep in. No lie, I have been more productive since July - particularly August - than I've ever been in my life. It feels amazing.


You are like me! All inertia! All you need to do is come up with a new LSAT!

Seriously, just find something to obsess over until it becomes a very solid, substantial part of your weekly routine. Structure your life around that. Done. Did.

I have seen one before, I believe, and I think it was from Powerscore. Basically, it's a run down of all the preptests questions classified . . . you know, like, Reading Comprehension, #7, Must Be True, or something like that. Thanks for anyone who can provide this. :D


Maybe http://top-law-schools.com/forums/viewt ... 6&t=108425?



I bow to you for your magnanimity. This LR questions by type will definitely come in handy. I knew this was somewhere but hadn't found it lately (bookmarked now). But I was seeking one for the RC, so if anybody has a list of RC questions organized by type, similar to the one provided above, that would be great.

Well, got through the first 70 pages of the LR bible, stuff is very basic for now, but here's what I think my plan of attack will be.

Do 2-4 question types a day (def will be able to do Tue/Thur/Sat) and i'll try Monday nights and Friday nights as well.
After I review the question types in depth, I'll print out the level 3 and 4 sets from Cambridge and do those. I usually get 95%+ correct on level 1 and 2, so I figure I've got the basics down, but it's the harder questions that trip me up somewhere, so I'll focus on those.

What do you all think?

I prefer LSATqa. I thought it was more focused on what I wanted - grading PTs and providing a comprehensive display and analysis of results. I thought 7Sage was more focused on the course, although I didn't play around with it long before switching to LSATqa so I'm not entirely sure. I've been more than satisfied with LSATqa though and it's honestly an indispensable part of my LSAT prep. While it helps in narrowing down my prep focus, it also hugely motivates me. I love seeing my averages change and the graphs improve.

I am going to take a closer look at LSATqa, then. I've only used them once and like I said, did not see a major difference, but you are right about 7sage, it does seem to be tied to their courses, maybe. Yet, . . . I'm trying to recall now, doesn't 7sage designate the problems by type? The problem with that is, since it is tied to their course, their classification may be a little unfamiliar.

I'm feeling left out because I don't have a state senate. I have provincial parliament and the one in Quebec is not one you want to ever be associated with, because it's basically a clusterfuck of corruption scandals.

Idk r internships cool? Idk if they're cool. If you're forced to sell your labor for free not so cool.

They seem like a really annoying stepping stone to underemployment

I met our counterparts from BC. Real interesting. I definitely formed some opinions about them, but I will say this: they can enunciate. It seems like their o's come out sounding like o's. Very defined vowels

I date all of my drilling material after I complete and grade it. Just finished my day's drilling and I was stunned the first time I wrote "9/1" - I can't believe this is the month! I know we're less than a month out, I know we're less than four weeks out, but it still stuns me that we are this close to the real test.

Grey can u confirm that at least some Canadians say their vowels in a very defined way, and if they do, do u think it's a reasonable basis with which to firm an opinion about these Canadians

VOWELS ARE IMPORTANT, OK?

But in BC it's probably because they want to make sure people understand when they're speaking Hippie. Or because they're high AF.

edit: lolling at the LSAT way you phrased that question

Ok so what I'm reading is yes some Canadians do and yes it's a reasonable standard w which to judge a Canadian bc they're probably stoned

Ty grey


I've also met Canadians from Alberta, and they have a real Fargo the movie thing going with their accents. You mentioned getting stoned, when they [edit: when I say they I mean the BC interns] gave a presentation to our group, they did it by subjects, and one subject was about marijuana. That portion of the presentation was boring af but it seems like the only one I can remember. That's sad.
