Unrelated note, but I'm surprised at the BDNCG w/ money dominance in this poll. See you guys at ASW, I guess...

Oh to go -0 in an LG section...

Congrats. I'll get there.

I used the LSAT Trainer and found it useful with RC, as well as with all the other sections.

-7 total, somehow that was a 177 on this test.

I thought the games were really tough on this test, but after reviewing it I just missed an inference on the second game that would have saved me a lot of time. I missed the very first question of the section too, pretty disappointed in myself for that one. This PT was really a reminder for me though that its a lot better to be relaxed than tense/anxious...I cooled off after the first two sections (LR1 and LG) and of course did a lot better on the final two. I also did almost zero marking up on RC. I can see marking up being useful when you're actually in law school and you need to go back days/weeks later to review what you've read, but at least for me personally it doesn't help me much in this time crunch/when I only need to keep the passage in mind for 5 minutes or so.

Let's hope our curve is that generous too, I mean wow -14 was a 170 on that one somehow.


That LG section is the hardest I've come by so far. I might print that one out and try redoing it tomorrow. Oh, and congrats on the 177!

The moment when you grade an LR section (PT19 S2) and grade from the section 1 answer key and think you got 7 wrong in a row.....

Almost had a meltdown and almost canceled my PT for tomorrow

The curve really doesn't matter. In fact, the curve exists to ensure that every test has the same level of difficulty.

I've got my resume and LORs set. I've been brainstorming PS stuff, but haven't put anything on paper yet.

And a shameless K-JD checking in.

30+. Everything (PS/DS/resume/addendums) written last cycle. Going to be doing heavy editing - or starting from scratch.

cant agree with this more. I've def had obstacles to overcome in life, but I'm worried my PS will just become a depressing list of things.

I just really think I'm not an interesting person. Like someone said above, I've never backpacked across Europe or founded an orphanage or anything like that. I'm just a poor(ish) suburban white guy who's really good with language and logic.

Haha we might be the same person. I havent decided if overcoming financial struggle is a decent topic. My mom raised our family and she never finished HS, but like I'm the youngest and my siblings went to college so i cant pull the "first person in college" card.
