LSAT, Here I Come

I took the SAT in 1995. I studied for weeks, maybe months. I had two textbooks and a workbook for the math and a workbook for the verbal. I worked through all of them from cover to cover. I can remember sitting at the dining room table at our house in Winter Park pouring over problems.

I did pretty well. I got two wrong on the math section for a score of 780 and I got a handful wrong on the verbal for a score of 690. I remember answering every question on the test and not leaving any blank. My combined score was a 1470.

The only reason I bring this up is because I just took a practice LSAT. I didn't do as well as I had hoped. Let's just say that I'm barely above average.

Up until now, I was kind of hoping that the LSAT would be a cakewalk. I'm glad I figured this out now, instead of when I was taking the test in June. As soon as I computed my score I started to think about all the time that I put into studying for the SAT.

Looks like I'm going to have to do the same thing to get my LSAT score up.

Bummer.

I took the SAT six times. My strategy eventually turned into focusing on just one section math/verbal per test... I hate standardized tests...

oof, the lsat. good luck with that. all i can say is that i'm SO GLAD mine's over with. so stressssssful, that thing is.

it's wicked easy though once you realize that the wrong answers are, 99% of the time, completely obvious if you know what you're looking for.

but yes, good luck. lots of good luck.
