Studying for the LSAT / Re: Third times a charm?
« on: October 17, 2009, 06:11:07 PM »
Taking the test a third time is, I am sure you have guessed, frowned upon but I'd still study. Study harder, you said you did no outside studying but if you know how important LSAT is then put in the time. If in your practice tests you are scoring within that 170 range, then go for it, even if you don't get into your desired school it can be major savings in tuition.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Sept. '09 LSAT...TODAY IS THE DAY!!!!

Got my e-mail....

semi disappointed. Happy that I got a score slightly above my average, but compared to how I felt coming out the test I thought it would be a bit better.

Good luck to the rest.

Whoever is retaking see you in June!

It makes no difference, as the scale is matched to ALL tests of the previous 3(possible 5 I forgot) years. Also its well known, thanks to our resident Julie Fern, that February be the hardest test ever.

Test didn't seem too bad. Then again I'll wait till I see what I get.


People at my test center didn't really seem to read the ticket info. Couple dozen people brought with them cellphones and ipods into the test center. One person even brought a laptop, of course to the laughter of the line waiting to register. Seriously.....

Wow I wish I had your problem. I barely finish on time (games/RC) and usually have to guess on one in the LR sections. This is when I try to speed read too!

I took Powerscore in San Jose that meets at the Marriot near the SJ airport. Instructor was Kristin Poolos and she has taught the class six+ times. She is personable and comes prepared. I liked her a lot.

In addition to Lsat prep it was also useful to hear her perspective about law school and the field itself. She was a Duke undergrad in English, 175 LSAT, Harvard Law graduate with 5 years as a lawyer.

Recommendations / Re: LSAC Misconduct for Letter of Recommendation

I'm a 0L so you can take my comment as you will, but Nola even IF your acceptances still stand I would seriously take some time to contemplate how badly you want to practice law.

You could be spending three years of your life, working like a dog, come out with a mountain of debt and fail to pass the bar. From what I have read on this forum, even the smallest of fabrications on law app seem to haunt ppl years down the line when it comes to passing the bar. Your situation is obviously much more serious with clear intent so do you want to take on that risk?

Good luck. I do hope things work out for you. Even though this is one event and does probably is the tip of the iceberg to the rest of your character, people do make mistakes. As long as you learn from it and take the consequences then all is good.

Well since I can't go back in time I won't be able to enroll in the January classes.

I guess what I may have to do, depending how far my score progresses through the class, is to postpone my test until September and save 10+ of the more recent tests to practice with PS techniques.
