Yeah, I am pretty sure there is the CSP Supported place and also the full-feel place, which is like 90k to 100k.

Any idea how much the CSP would be? And how to obtain it?

EDIT: Also just out of interest: would the Melbourne JD course be different between students who completed their undergrad at UoM (since they never did law before) compared to someone who completed a law undergrad at Monash, for example? Does the latter student have to sit the LSAT?

Haha, thanks Erinyy! Yeah I understand the above paragraph. 2.5 Months? I have heard people who dedicated a good few years of their life for it!
I think I'd go crazy if I did that. But hey, if you can study for years, go for it! Especially if you really want to do law.

Someone who does the LLB at Monash doesn't have to sit the LSAT and entry is pretty much based on ENTER alone. An LLB is equvilant to a JD in terms of what you learn and what it allows you to do, but the JD tends to be more condensed/intensive so that student finish quicker. Thus, someone who did law undergrad at Monash couldn't do a JD anyway.

Right...I think I was getting confused between JD and masters...

Makes sense now, thanks.

I don't know how helpful this is, but my Dad said he just did a whole lot of past papers, and he did really well on them, better than those who did LSAT prep sessions (which probably don't exist here anyway). Also, his background was politics and history. However, that's just one person, and it was a fecking long time ago.

Yeah. I think there probably are people who benefit from LSAT prep companies and stuff, but I don't think it's really necessary to do well.

I'd recomment the PowerScore LSAT series - theyre good books which you can probably torrent for, i know this is kinda late, but i felt the urge to let others know of it.

The LSAT is a standardized test used to get into the Melbourne Juris Doctor. I dont know if you have to study the LSAT to improve in the UMAT. It could improve your logic and reasoning so maybe thats probably its only advantage. Unlike the UMAT though the LSAT is preparable. You can improve through practice. I am actually sitting it this Sunday coming.

No I didnt say I am sitting the umat. I am just saying lsat sounds a lot like the umat. Yet ppl say u can study for lsat but not the umat. why is that? They are both aptitude tests arent they?

Theres rules in the LSAT.

For example in the section Logic Games sometimes you get examples of conditional reasoning. Which allows you to presuppose things. You would not learn to do this by not studying. After grinding out examples one would be able to differentiate certain conditions in an example by using such logic thats not appealing to the eye after the first go.

Its a timed test as well, so you can definitely improve in your 'time' that it takes to complete a test.

Hey guys, this LSAT prep thread was quite informative for me. I too will be taking this test soon so will need some tips and guidelines to pass the test. I would like to use Mobile LSAT Prep Course. If anyone here has recommendations, please let me know.
