Hi all,

Should one mention a learning or a visual disability in his/her statement? On the one hand if one's scores and achievements are high, mentioning about the disability would be a plus, because it would be a proof of will to succeed. On the other hand, the admission officers might have concerns about these applicants' ability to succeed through the program, hence they might deny admission. Any comments?


Law School Admissions / How about assistantships?
« on: July 10, 2002, 03:16:59 PM »
Hi all.

I was wondering how often law schools award merit-based assistantships/scholarships? What part of tuition could be thus waived? Any possibility for a 100% tuition waiver + stipend? If such aid exists, could it be granted before enrolment (for the very first year)?

Hi all,

I already have a graduate degree: MBA (GPA=3.6). How will I be treated if I apply to law school?

Hi all,

Any rumor about Schools that encourage foreign applicants? Can a foreign applicant hope for a 100% tuition waiver?


Law School Admissions / Can GMAT substitute for LSAT?
« on: May 19, 2002, 06:55:02 AM »
Hi all,

I am a recent MBA interested in applying to Law Schools.
I was wondering if the LSAT is an absolute requirement. I have a valid GMAT score. Would some universities accept a GMAT instead of LSAT?


Law School Admissions / Late (February) LSAT disadvantages
« on: December 03, 2002, 09:29:11 AM »
Hi all,

I am wondering whether a late (February) LSAT is a great disadvantage.

Any comments about the "admission on a rolling basis policy" and late LSAT? How about Boston University?

Thank you very much,


Studying for the LSAT / Scratch Paper Question
« on: July 07, 2002, 09:47:02 AM »
Hi all,

The LSAC website says we'll be given scratch paper only for the essay. However, the instructions under section 3 of the sample test say we can draw a diagram if we want. How could we draw a diagram without scratch paper???

P.S. Is there a computer-based LSAT, or currently it's only paper-based?


Studying for the LSAT / Can I opt for a computer-based LSAT?

Hi all,

From what I hear I understand the LSAT is only paper-based. No possibility for a computer-based test (like the GMAT for instance). Is that correct?


Studying for the LSAT / What is the Test Book Size, Font&Layout?
« on: July 29, 2002, 02:25:33 PM »
Hi all,

I wonder what is the actual test book size, text font and text layout? Are they the same as in the sample sections in the Registration Book: small print in 2 columns on a large page?

That is important to me since I have visual problems. I need to know what to expect.

Thanx a million,

Studying for the LSAT / Urgent Answer-Sheet Question
« on: November 25, 2002, 09:10:04 AM »
Hi all,

I am taking the December LSAT in 2 weeks. I would be happy if any of you shared his/her experience with the answer sheet. Should I fill in the ovals simultaneously? Or should I mark ALL the answers in the test book first and copy all of them to the answer sheet when I am finished with the section?

Any comments would be very helpful.
