Law School Applications / Re: Another Waitlist Question
« on: June 01, 2008, 02:40:55 AM »
iku07, same here.  I got off two waitlists by doing almost nothing at one and sending a LOCI to the other.  I've visited two other law schools and sent them LOCIs in person but have not gotten off their list yet.  It is all a matter of standing out at this point.  Law schools are loathe to hand out acceptances to people they arent sure will attend.  Additionally, most schools use the WL to round out their class numbers, so splitters benefit greatly.

Yes I have.  They have been disclosing rankings since May 15.

GMU will not lose its accreditation for at least 6 more years.  Here is the WSJ article:

Being a minority myself, I'm discouraged from attending GMU because of this mess.  Good job ABA.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Unusual question

Then I'm sure you've gotten this before as well, "Thanks a lot, I wasn't aware that it was already addressed."

Studying for the LSAT / Re: We're next! So who is taking in June?

It doesn't matter if the test is hard.  The LSAT is scored in relation to the performance of all test-takers, so what matters is the quality of your peers.

Studying for the LSAT / Unusual question
« on: May 04, 2008, 05:08:53 AM »
Basically, I've run out of preptests to take.  I know many of you don't like Kaplan, but their LSAT preptest library is pretty sweet.  They had a bunch of preptests on hand, which they let me use, and now I can't seem to find full preptests that I have not already taken at least in part.  I've checked preptest 7-45 and I've taken all but like 8 of them.  This will not be enough to tide me over until the June LSAT.  So my question is, are there any books that have "fake" full LSAT practice tests?  Or are there any realllllly old preptests (1-6) available somewhere?

I'm in, thought I didn't want to take it again.  I figure I have very little to lose and a lot to gain.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: diagnostic score versus actual score

Cold Turkey:  149
Practice Range:  153-167
Actual:  164

What really helped me out was repeatedly taking full practice tests.  That taught me effective time management and question selection skills.  Once I broke the 160 barrier, I never dropped below it.

Wait List / Re: WL dilemma(s)
« on: May 03, 2008, 01:59:35 AM »
Thanks a lot everyone, I really appreciate the input.  As for vandy, I've already done pretty much all I can to express my interest in the school.  So at this point, I think it is out of my hands.  After I graduate, I'll pay a visit to the schools to which I've been admitted and will probably make a decision afterwards on whether I'm going to law school this year.  I probably will attend, though, as both are good schools -- just not the ones I had my hopes set on. 

Btw, I want to keep you all updated on my situation.  However, I wonder if any of the admissions people read this stuff and decide to scratch my name off the waitlists if they know that I'm also being waitlisted at so many other schools.  Any thoughts or am I just being paranoid?

Wait List / Re: WL dilemma(s)
« on: April 27, 2008, 02:29:41 AM »
Thanks a lot, that was very helpful.  Part of the reason I'm having such a hard time managing this waitlist list :-\ is that I don't have much information on these schools.  If (hopefully) I get off the waitlist for some of these schools, I'll need to have as much info as I can get to weigh my options.

So are there any other people who would like to share their opinions?
