Where should I go next fall? / Re: 3.86 / 155... where should I go?

If you make around a 160, try DePaul and Loyola Chicago, you'd have a good shot.

Law School Applications / LSAC Forums
« on: September 30, 2009, 07:48:50 PM »
Is there any advantage to attending an LSAC Forum?  I know there is one coming up in Chicago, which isn't too far away for me. 

Has anyone heard of attending one of the forums helping their chances? My friend met a Dean there and received a personal email from him afterward.  Do you think it is worth the time?  I'll make the trip if I think it could help my chances at a top school.

Law School Applications / Re: to write or not to write?

I agree with violaboy, it's not going to hurt anything explaining your situation.

I have an identical situation. Just try not to come off as pretentious by criticizing your 3.55

I am submitting an add wherever allows it.  If you want any advice on writing it, PM me and I'll let you know how I went about it, or anything else I can do to help out.

Personal Statement / Re: A request for Personal Statement critiquers

I'd be willing to help as well, mine is finished, so no need to trade.  I'd more than happy to send you mine if necessary...anything that might help you out. Message me if you'd like to arrange an email.

Personal Statement / Re: please butcher my PS
« on: September 25, 2009, 11:20:47 AM »
That's not particularly the case - it's just really difficult to critique a personal statement on a forum. 

You may want to talk a little bit about WHY you'll be a good lawyer, or WHY you want to go to law school.  Otherwise, it's a good narrative.

Diggz, that's exactly what I did.  Works fine.

Law School Applications / Fee Waivers
« on: September 18, 2009, 02:50:38 PM »
Is there any sort of trick to getting extra fee waivers?  I have received a couple, but I am applying a lot of schools and it's going to be terribly expensive.

Any advice would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: a stupid question

Applications for your cycle will become available in the Fall of 2010, generally in early September.  You'll have from September to February (for most schools) to apply.

Most people suggest getting your applications in early though, so it's good to set a goal once that time comes around.  You've got some waiting to do though, so I wouldn't worry to much about it yet.

I think the best thing you can do now is stay relaxed and confident when you go to your testing center.  Maybe it's just me, but your confidence walking into the test plays a big role in your score.

Keep studying like you have and you'll do fine.  Panicking never helps, so just keep up what you've been doing.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: JUNE 2009 LSAT Vs. Previous Prep Tests
« on: September 11, 2009, 01:28:56 PM »
Stop worrying, you're going to do great.  You've been consistent..ignore a small bump in the road.

I made a 156 two days before my LSAT and I couldn't believe it.  Much like you, I took it late in the evening and I wasn't focused.

Good luck, best wishes.
