Incoming 1Ls / Re: Debunking a Myth
« on: March 03, 2008, 09:00:52 PM »
Current 1L here, at my school it is quite the opposite. If you miss class, there are about 10 people asking you if you need notes. When we work on our writing projects we collaborate, the thought process is that we are all scared of not having what we need, so if we all share then no need to worry that someone has something you don't. For all of our legal research problems, whoever got to the books first circled all the relevant information as he went, so that everyone after him got right to the point and was finished earlier. The fact of the matter is that if you withhold info from someone then later on you might need that person, and then you are just screwed. Trust me, there is no need to try to sabotage people, they will do it on their own.

Law School Admissions / Re: 3+ LSAT scores: how are they considered?
« on: July 23, 2007, 11:17:47 AM »
I took the LSAT three times. Before doing so, I spoke with the admissions people at some top 25 schools. I was told that it would not be looked down upon as long as I explain my reasons for taking the test. One told me that as long as I was actually changing my study habits and improving my score they were even more impressed because of my dedication to improving my score. I will mention one thing though, the third time I took it was to improve my score so that I could get better scholarships, I was already accepted at most of my schools.

It's not ideal, but you won't be out of the running. A February retake, however, is much too late. Some schools won't accept a Feb. score for the upcoming fall.

While some schools might not take Feb retake, that is not true for all. All of my schools accepted it as long as you already had your application to them. It helped me get more scholarship money.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Law school enrollment continues to decline

Sounds like the net affect is that the average law school student is becoming ever so slightly less qualified.

Strange that medians have been going up over the last few years.  Hmmmm.

Yes, this is what I was thinking. If the applicants are less qualified, then why are the numbers rising?

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Multiple LSAT scores... What were your results??
« on: June 13, 2007, 01:16:01 PM »
I went from a 156 to a 163. But I attribute the first score to nerves, I did practically have a nervous breakdown on the way to the test. It was very bad. But I do think if you change your style of studying you can greatly improve, jus tbecause everyone learns differently so you may have to try a few methods before it really sinks in.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: REGISTRATION DEADLINE?!
« on: May 22, 2007, 07:17:31 AM »
Yeah I knew these are the responses I should have expected from potential law school students, but then again I also expected for people to not be so "by the book." There are tons of reasons why they would let me still take the test--

1. Surely theres plenty of people who are in my same situation
2. The oct/dec tests are more popular than the feb/june tests, so the liklihood that the feb/june tests are completely full is not as high as it coul dbe
3. LSAC easily could have something along the lines of a "waiting list" for people that fail to register by the deadline-- spots open up when kids change testing centers (unless of ocourse you can only change testing centers if there is someone that wants your current testing center), and surely not ALL testing centers are full since some are probably in unpopular cities. I dont care if I have to drive 2 hours to get to the testing site.

Always would have preferred if you didnt respond unless you actually knew what would happen rather than saying "oh the deadling is the 18th so you cant take it"-- dont you guys f-ing take the arguments section on the goddamn LSAT? Jesus christ, there could be billions of potential reasons why LSAC would let you register for the test. Is there anybody out there that actually KNOWS of a situation like m ine and what the outcome was? Thanks.

Before you start bashing people on this board you might want to stop and think, maybe just maybe they know someone else this happened to. Just by chance I do, and they would not let him register, LSAC said late registration is over and you missed it. He had to wait to take the test.

All I know is that I will take my tier 2 school with a tiny amount of debt over my other choice a tier 1 school and most likely 150K in debt anyday!
