Studying for the LSAT / Re: The Feb LSAT SUCKS
« on: February 23, 2008, 09:35:38 AM »
It looks like you need to wait until next cycle for law school.

And study alot more.

I usually study during lunch hour and when I get back home from work around 6-7PM to around 9PM mostly each day.

During 1 hour lunch ill do 2 sections (30 min per section for practice) of the exam then same day after work I go through all the problems in detail.

During weekdends I try to do full simulated exams.

In any case, I dont think studying 8 hours per day over 7 days is a good study habbit anyway, you have to have give time for knowledge to settle, not to cram, burnout, and forget.

Non-Traditional Students / Re: Getting into T14 with my situation?

Thank you all.


I'll set my high mark for Columbia and will try apply to all T14's below it to cover all bases.

Thank you for response,

My undergrad GPA suffered on my 2nd year in school due to some personal issues, but in my final semester it was 3.85 and was on high rise trend through my final years in undergrad.

I also have some research and real world work experience. 

Hopefully the "soft" factors do help, I wont be dissapointed in getting into lower part of T14 either.

It is good to hear that I have a chance of getting into T14 school!

Non-Traditional Students / Getting into T14 with my situation?
« on: February 17, 2008, 02:09:30 PM »
My first post, so excuse me if I'm in a wrong board.

My situation is that I have finished my BA some years ago with low GPA of 3.2.

I then proceeded to get a MS degree from the same university, this time the GPA was 3.9.

I have not yet taken LSAT, but I have taken the "sample" test to measure my performance and scored 169 on it.

I am planning on taking LSAT preparation course (this May) at a local university and will continue to drill myself for coming couple of months with study material.

I am personally aiming for mid 170's and with some preparation I am confident I can achieve it.

If I do achieve that LSAT score, my goal was to get into a T14 school.  How real would it be for me to get in?

My main concern is my relatively low undergraduate GPA.   Would the graduate GPA, which is reasonable, have any weight on their decision?

I am from Ukraine/Soviet Union and speak 3 languages if that makes any difference to acceptance procedure (possibly minority status?).

edit:  I am looking to practice Corporate Law.

Thank you,

D. Beliy
