Minority Topics / what race to mark on LS apps?
« on: December 01, 2005, 11:34:23 AM »
For any type of applicatons I usually just put asian but technically I am half chinese and half west indian (cant narrow to one country there), so should I just conform to what I usually do with my race or should I check other and write asian/west indian?
Will putting both races give me an adtantage over just putting one race?
thanks

Wanted to know if:
St. Johns
Fordham
New York Law School

take the average or the higher score if I take the LSAT twice? Or do I need to beat a spread for them to take the higher score?

im looking into their PT programs as I will have to work while in law school.

thanks

thanks for your replies. to add a little more info, i took the oct 2005 lsat and got 150...yes i sucked. I prefer to retake before I actually apply to law school. The thing is right now im still paying off my loans for my undergrad. Through my job I am able to get some funding for law school and the difference id have to pay outa my pocket. I dont mind that but at this time it doesnt seem ideal to be paying for law school outa my pocket while still taking care of my loan. Since i am in an engineering position, my job will cover probably full cost for an engineering degree (MS) so i figured ill kill two birds with one stone, get my MS while i pay off my loan, then take a crack at law school. This plan actually works better for wut i intend to do, that is take the PE exam. I wont be eligible until around 2008 (need four years design experience) and i would prefer not to have to study and take the PE exam while im law school. The way I have it planned out, after finished the MS, I would have time to take the april PE and then start the JD that fall. Another side note, my job offers a PE review course for free and taking that while in law school would prob not be possible. So yea sorry for the long story but my main concern was would the admission process question as to why I took the LSAT in 2006 but am applying in say 2008. A strategy I was comtemplating is commenting on that in my personal statement somehow.

but yea I see wut SCgrad is saying

I am going to put off law school for like 2-3 years and do an MS in EE since itll be mostly free and i need time to pay back my undergrad loans.

with that said the earliest I will be applying to law school is for Fall 2008.
Will it look bad if I take the LSAT now either feb 2006 or june 2006 but then apply in spring of 2008?

The LSAC account last for 5 years so that will be within the time limit of it but do the scores last that long and will the schools I apply to question why I took the LSAT and then waited 2 years to apply to law school?

any comments will be appreciated.

thanks

Where should I go next fall? / Re: LOR, how long are they good for?
« on: October 29, 2005, 11:18:44 AM »
yea thats wut i was getting at, theyll still be on file with LSAC, but will the LS's actually pay attention to the year the LORs are from or just the actualy content. My LOR's didnt get processed and placed on the system yet so i dont know how it will appear, meaning does the LSAC post the date that the LORs were submitted?
