This is great it's you guys are stressing out but I still have 13 days left. I feel like a person who was infected by the zombie virus watching people who were bitten before me begin to turn.

Then 27th rolls around and you all will be chilling in the waiters thread, and I will just be here shitting my pants alone.

Happy Monday Y'all.

Really struggling to get over the 165 hump...Took 3 practice tests over the weekend and I have become remarkably consistent(163,163,165), but I am struggling at breaking -10 total for LR.
I keep going like 13/14 to start a section and missing 4 out of the next 5 then finishing perfect.
RC i'm missing on average 1-5 questions, and the games is super in flux.
So i am gonna take a gamble, and stop prepping reading comp and just tighten it up on LG and LR...

Seem to be failing to master sufficient assumption and parallel reasoning questions... any tips for solving these questions?

On the plus side, my Eagles are 3-0 :o

Resist! We have five days left. It's the last stretch. You can do this!!


But I have certain things I have to get done before Thursday, so I'm thinking of just getting most of it done today so I have less to do and less work stress on Tuesday and Wednesday. But yes, LSAT >>>>>>>>> everything, especially work.


Need is all relative, BJS.


You are awful. I have several meetings I have to be prepped for, and several volunteers I have to make sure are running through the weekend. But regardless, all work stops Wednesday at 7:30pm. I am feeling a bit run down, so sleep takes priority over prep for this week.

I had my first LSAT nightmare of the week. we were about to start the test but I didn't hear the proctor say "start" so I just stared at him while everyone worked on the first section. when I realized I had to start I had one of those moments where I'm telling myself to do something in my dream but I couldn't move. woke up sweating lol

I'm about to start PT C

Sup Bill,

Yeah Friday night(after work), saturday morning, sunday morning... Reviewed saturday and sunday tests in evening.
I do quite well, comparatively, on NA as i negate them and turn them into weaken questions..
PF is also an issue but it is usually easier for me to spot the MR, MN, etc.

Idk IMHO that's quite a bit of PTing obvs the test is sat so PT schedules r largely out the window at this point
Do u miss a certain type of SA those things r pretty mechanical usually involves a term shift or gap where the gaps vary in their level of obviousness there was a SA on 71 that was kinda weird that u don't see very often I know I used to have quite a few probz with SA but once I started approaching them the same way as NA life got better
Do u have the PF packet

Edit also made a wrong turn while writing that omw to work

I just bought 3 LR packets based on the question types I tend to miss (parallel & assumption).

I don't think I'll improve on RC in 4 days so I'll be practicing my LR weaknesses and LG drills.

Am I missing out by not doing full PTs before Saturday?

Thanks guys.


JerryLundegard I would assess which LR question type you're consistently getting wrong and just buy the packets.

The September Thread wrote:I really enjoy the way Bill clothes his thoughtful commentary and occasionally elevated diction in textspeak. I see it as a kind of High Street/couture approach to language; there's a genius in the mixing. And some fairly august linguists even liken switching back and forth between textspeak and orthodox language to bilingualism. So in a way, by forcing us to toggle back and forth as readers, Bill is treating us to a more complicated experience with language.

However despite this apparent respect for language in the highest regard, Bill and others like him have encountered a high level of criticism. Those who see this language usage as an abomination can generally be seen as falling into two types. The first type is those who have a genetic predisposition forcing them to only be able to read sentences with proper punctuation. This is a very rare deformity and basically an anomaly. Therefore the focus should rely mainly on the second type: those with such a level of pretension that every utterance that comes out of their mouth must be bombastic in nature.

A recent study by Jerry B. Knowitall has provided those who consider this criticism to be unfair with additional ground for countering the skepticism regarding the value of the unique combination of thoughtful content and a form free from the constraints of grammar and spelling exhibited in the works of BillPackets and others. In the development of the Ur-Germanic language from which English and other continental languages evolved, a similar pattern of language use occurred, and Mr. Knowitall contends that the introduction of this pattern has helped spur the development of the English language as we know it today. Instead of seeing it as regressive (or worse, degenerate), we ought to embrace the wit and elegance that is packed in textspeak as a crucial step towards the future development of English.

Of course, despite the historical impetus behind the development of the English language that is well documented by Dr. Knowitall and others like him, we should not expect the current forces that are pushing the English language into a new epoch to be readily accepted among all members of society. Indeed, throughout history, the evolution and changing nature of English has been fought and derided by those in positions of authority, and in particular by those who possess a false sense of what the English language actually is e.g. an "unchanging, holistic pattern of communicative sounds". So, while it may seem that textspeak is the next logical direction for the English language, given the influence of technology on society, we should not be surprised that some will hold onto a 'traditional' sense of the English language and attempt to fight the inherent changing nature of the English language.
