As it was so poignantly stated by Anonymous, it's time to get to work.
And if it wasn't Anonymous who said it, then Anonymous said it. Or perhaps it was Anonymous. Eh... I lose track. Doesn't matter though. I'm just glad it was said.
In fact, it's actually beyond time to get to work. It's more like "Time to get back to work after the morning break."
Regarding my previous comment about not using a tutor for this go-round. I'm taking half of that back. For a couple of reasons. The biggest reason that I'm going to get some help is that my scores went down from July.
There. I said it. God, that was tough. It hurts like hell but I'll try it again.
My. Scores. Went. Down. From. July.
Blah. Blech. Ugh. Painful, that is.
My score was still in the 1300's, but I went from the middle of the top half to the middle of the bottom half. So I think I need to do more than simply get better at what I'm currently doing, because if I get too proficient at my current style I'll easily work my way into the 1200's. (;-)>
Not only am I going to have to work on my writing, I'm going to have to make a major change to my essay structure. This is much more than simply fixing a leaky roof and putting on a new coat of paint. There's mold in the walls. I'm going to have to take it down to the studs and rebuild it. (Pardon the construction analogy, but it seemed to fit.)
The next biggest reason I’m hiring help is that I don't want to do a major remodel like this without expert guidance. I need direction from someone who knows what the Bar is looking for. The choice now is between two programs, both of which specialize in writing and are staffed with people who have years of experience as graders.
When I said that I’m taking half of my statement back I meant that I’m avoiding the programs that feature a review of the substantive law. Any time spent in an organized program listening to a lecture on, say, the Rule Against Perpetuities is a waste of my time.
So, there go ya’! Every day’s an adventure from here through the end of July.
