Choosing the Right Law School / 3.51/148 Should I even apply?
« on: October 18, 2009, 12:28:02 PM »
Target Schools: Howard, UDC, University of Baltimore, Catholic, George Mason, George Washington

Tentative Plan: Apply early to the first three above and retake the LSAT in December in hopes of improving my score to have a chance at the last three above.

Also, I had a 3.75 GPA but LSAC recalcuated my GPA to 3.51 based on some courses I took like 10 years ago. So I guess the 3.51 is what counts but do law schools see both GPAS?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Absent vs. Cancel Score
« on: September 23, 2009, 09:39:53 PM »
Absent = I scheduled something and didn't show up and didn't give notice. Not good. Relatively uncommon.

Cancel = I choked/was sick/something unusual happened and I exercised good judgment. Reasonably common.

But couldn't you be exercising good judgment by being absent? For instance, suppose you have a death in the family, swine flu, etc. Obviously, that's not the case for us but how do they distinguish who exercised good judgment and who didn't among the people that were absent?

From what I've heard it's better to be absent because you are never exposed to the test. I was planning on being absent but now I'm having second thoughts. ???

This is how I have it diagrammed:

                                                   >   O   
N/S   >   K   >   IL   >   G
                                                   >   P   H   S/N

Why is (A) the correct answer choice - "the fourth, the fifth."

I get why Gimena could be in the fourth class. But the fifth? I'm stumped.

Thanks in advance.

I'd wait until some more experienced folks chime in but here's my guess:

Couldn't you have the following two scenarios?

N/S > K > IL > G > S/N > PHO

N/S > K > IL > S/N > G > PHO

How are you supporting them now, and why can't you do that another year?

That's the thing I'm not.........they are currently supporting me while I prepare for the LSAT. Sure I could go to work and take another year to prepare but my goal is to get in next year. I have nothing but time to prepare right now so it just feels right to pursue it now.

I definitely can't wait another year. I'm getting too old. It's now or never for me. I already got accepted to grad school but I deferred my admission because I just couldn't live with myself without at least trying to get into law school.

That's also why I'm afraid to reschedule because it scares me to just have one shot at this thing in December.

Oh please.  One year isn't going to make that much of a difference in the span of your legal career, I don't care what your age is.  More importantly, restricting yourself to this idea that December is your "one shot" is not going do you any good, because the fear of failure will be hanging over your head.  If you really want to be a lawyer, you'll do what it takes to achieve that goal, and if that means studying an extra year, so what?

Yes I agree but I have a family to support so it's not all about me and what I want.
