Hey everyone! I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a write up of my experience/thoughts on studying for/taking the lsat. I got a 180 on the October test (still can't believe that happened and I keep thinking it's a mistake) and so much of the credit goes to the inspiration and helping words I found on this forum that I want to find a way to give back a bit, since I mostly lurked while studying. I wanted to gauge the interest before I spent a couple hours writing the thing, would people be interested in that? What would you want to know, if you are interested?

Edit: Here it is!

    Would love to hear about your general approach for each section, and details about plateau's and breakthroughs during the course of your prep. Congratulations on the 180, and enjoy having law schools make it rain scholarship money all over you.

    Congratulations on scoring 180, you should be very proud of yourself! Yes please nbrick11, that would be incredible if you could do that. If you could please also share with us what your original cold test score was and how long you spent studying. How many months, how many hours a day, and how many practice tests you did prior to the Oct exam. Any specific study techniques that you found helpful and what you think helped you the most with each section of the exam. Also if you have any specific advice on what you think others could do to increase their scores the most. Did you use the BR process?, drilling? fool proof method? etc. Thank you in advance for any tips or advice you could give the rest of us.

    That would be amazing. My biggest question would be: how did you conquer RC? Did you have to work up to it was in just a natural talent? If you had to work for it, what did you do? Because I SUCK at RC.

    Great! I'll try to hit all the points you all mentioned here. I'll start it tonight and hopefully wrap it up tomorrow after work. If anyone thinks of something not mentioned above I'd be happy to incorporate that as well.
