« on: February 12, 2011, 07:51:54 PM »
For anyone who took the LSAT at that test site in 2010, 2011--

Big lecture room or small classrooms?

Long desks or floppy desks?

Profesional proctors?

Noise level outside or inside the room?

Thank you very much.

Studying for the LSAT / NYC LSAT Study Buddy
« on: October 11, 2010, 07:18:21 PM »
Hello, my name is Vicky and I am currently looking for study buddies to study the LSAT together on weekdays.  At first, I created the facebook LSAT Study Group <- feel free to join

and a bunch of members can only meet after work at 6pm or so and on weekends.

So now I am looking for someone that can study with me the whole day on weekdays; it can be once, twice, or three times a week, whenever you are available Mon-Fri.

I love the Bryant Park Library (42nd st & 5th Ave) so if you want to study there, that's perfect.

If not, the 18th st Barnes and Noble has cafe area with chairs and tables.

I can also meet at any NYPL (New York Public Library) in Manhattan.


Looking for study buddies to study on weekdays in Manhattan.

Thank you and please email if interested!!!

So I went to the law school forum yesterday and discovered that some law schools do not need letters of recommendation at all.
I was pretty surprised.

Now, I need your help.  Please tell me all the law schools you know that do not required LOR.  That you so much for your help.

Should I call the university ?

I am a peculiar, sensitive, and picky person.  I do not do well on small floppy(?) desk so I am sort of freaking out, and I'm also a lefty!  :'(  Should I try the pre-law department to see if they know?

I don't even the exact location in the university.

The location is Pace University btw lol... does anyone know if it's a good test location?

I also have a small question.  Has anyone try to bubble in the questions you cannot complete from other sections?  They say you are not supposed to do anything once a section is completed, but is it possible?  Since the scantron is right in front of you?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: If I cancel my LSAT score

Because I believe a cancelled and a high score is better than a low score and a high score.

Studying for the LSAT / If I cancel my LSAT score
« on: June 08, 2009, 09:00:18 PM »
what happens to the writing sample?  It doesn't send to law schools right?  I have to make sure.  Thanks!

I am absolutely not ready to take the LSAT this weekend and I missed the deadline to change my LSAT date. What should I do? I never understand why others say only take LSAT once? Why? Does it look that bad that I am taking it twice?

LSAT instructor told me that I should just take this LSAT then cancel it, and take the Sept one.

Should I cancel it?

What about if I don't cancel it? I have a whole summer to prepare for my Sept LSAT and what if my score went up a lot? Like if I have a low score and a good score, wouldn't that be a good thing?


I am so freaking out..

I am a quiet student and don't really bother or converse with professors so I don't know my professors well.

The downside of this is of course I need to ask professors for recommendation but I really forgot how...

I don't go to professors' office hours or email them or contact them.  So my question is that I want to know if there is a checklist on getting a good recommendation from a professor?

It'd be weird to just tell them your life story or your passion in law *laughs*.  Do you just speak out in class constantly and make sure your professors know your name the first class?  How do people do this?

Thanks a lot!

from a clueless student.

Choosing the Right Law School / low gpa . . . does it REALLY matter?
« on: February 14, 2009, 03:52:11 PM »
I am currently at a university that I absolutely hate.  Why?  because it is in a place that is full of crime, bar fights, etc.  Last year, a student died as a result of a gun shot wound in a bar downtown.  It's a depressing place and commuting sucks if you don't have a car. 

Because of that my gpa is really suffering.  I started very high with a 3.64 in the first semester and it's dropping and dropping.  Now I think I am going to graduate with a 3.3 gpa now that is very low considering that my dream school is Boston University law school.

Any advice?  I plan to take the LSAT soon and if I aim at around 170+, would that matter?  I am so depressed right now and I fell hopeless to bring up my gpa because I only have a semester to go. 

Thank you.
