If math didn't exist I would be so happy. I'm not even motivated when it comes to trying to learn it. Pretty much any other subject I at least really WANT to learn about it, but mathematics...**** it. Geometry was the last math class I liked.

I've always been pretty good at math, but never liked it. Was always in advanced math classes in high school, but never had a foreseen practical purpose or use for it outside of the classroom, so I only took 1 math class in college. I'm actually taking an online harvard made class now with algebra, stats, and calc, and holy **** it's a pain to relearn everything, especially online. I can't wait to start the stats portion though. Killed that ish in highschool w/o ever studying. Hope it's as easy for me this time around.

Why are you so gun-ho about a major in math pelt?

Though for your information, I have already scored in the 98th percentile on an LSAT (strictly timed) and that was on my 9th LSAT. I plan to take the other 41 LSAT's that I have on my computer. After that I also plan to start recycling old ones before I even consider paying the $160 to take the exam.
Dont get so defensive man. Youre a smart guy, listen to viewpoints other than your own and I think you will only continue to help yourself.

Congrats on the practice score. You dont have to validate yourself, I'm just making some general statements that 99/100 people will fall short of the bar youve set. Point Im trying to make is not to discredit those scoring in the 90th percentile or something similar. Plenty of variables can change anyone's score on any particular test and you can't consider someone a complete failure off of one observation.

Nobody outside the 99th percentile has ever gone on to graduate school.

Because I truly enjoy math. I cannot even begin to put into words how Calc II makes me feel. Feelsbad that it took so long to discover my true passion in life. But I don't to sit around and twiddle my thumbs while looking demotivated. MIT open courseware has plenty of resources.

Yes I can, confidence is in preparation.

If you prepped enough, then you would know if you did bad and just cancel and try again later.

What kind of viewpoint is: "Oh I doubt you can score in the 99th %ile"? Okay, sweet viewpoint let me listen to that real quick. Kidding, that is not a viewpoint. Maybe you should listen to my viewpoint. That is, if you can't ever bother to sufficiently prepare for an admissions test, then you should not even bother to fill out an admissions application.

Sadly they have, which is part of the reason why we have jobless losers with PhD's, JD's and MBA's. And yes I know you were being sarcastic.

So if somebody scores in the 98th percentile, they might as well give up on their hopes and dreams? A test score and a GPA are the only indicators of successful employment? C'mon man. I get the concept of what you're laying down, but I think you are going way too far.

I mean, LEMUR was born of looking at ALL programs that produce excellent results, and finding the commonalities. It's not surprising that babyslayer's routine ends up looking similar, since he is getting really good results.

Where did I talk about employment?

I am saying for instance who is more likely to excel in law school? The kid with a 162 on his lsat and a 3.3 college gpa, who is having his tuition entirely financed by his family or student loans? Or the kid who got a 178 on his lsat and a 3.6 gpa?

Yes it is true the test scores and undergraduate gpa don't determine employment when someone has a graduate degree. Though you can bet your *** that someone who finished in the top 5 of their class at a top tier law school is going to get hired by a law firm. If you want to argue that, then provide evidence or else we are just talking bull****. All I know are the stories from my dad and stepmom, JD's who graduated 2nd and 3rd in their classes from top tier law schools.

Employment is the ultimate goal, so I went ahead and skipped a step or two.

Let me ask you this: With your standards so high for graduate school entrance, what about for undergrad programs?

I recognized your utilization of a straw man argument.

Yeah, I guess I am not even sure why I responded if you are just going to distort my argument and essentially attack a completely different position.

I just thought it was funny how he implements the same theory, given more volume on the heavy sets vs a pre activation (or is it scientifically called post activation?). I also find it a bit comical how each program works well on their own, but even better when implemented all together.

Yes, that's definitely what I was doing. I surely couldn't have been trying to expand the discussion and get your opinion on another, similar subject.

I want to shave so badly. The threats of the other lads on the team to sharpie it back onto me while I sleep is the only thing making my beard last until I start.
