General Board / Re: Mid-range LSAT score and okay grades.
« on: September 07, 2004, 01:24:09 PM »
Hey.  I am from Oklahoma and know a little bit about Tulsa.  While OU is the top law school in OK tulsa seems to have a respected program and I know that they place many lawyers in the tulsa area.  Im not sure what a TU degree would do for you outside of OK but its definitely worth something in tulsa and OK city.  Good luck

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Tulsa?
« on: December 07, 2004, 08:04:38 PM »
Hey all.  I was born and raised in Tulsa, and I have to say that I think its a really nice city.  Like others have said, it doesnt have as much as some other larger cities, nevertheless I think it has a lot to offer.  In my opinion it is a clean city, with nice restaurants, bars, shopping, and culture.  From my experience, TU, while not as highly regarded as OU, is still well respected in the Tulsa/OKC area.  In fact, a benefit of it is that it is the second best school in the state.  I know lots of people who have had sucessful careers with TU degrees. 

PS Hey dignan, I went to Bixby.  "FFA FFA You will work for us someday" is one of my favorite high school memories.

LSAC and LSDAS / Re: I hate to beat the LOR dead horse, but ...
« on: October 25, 2004, 01:07:44 PM »
Im not sure if you guys saw, but there was another thread that said that they had some LOR problems at LSDAS.  I guess they were understaffed and the process is experiencing some delays.  My second one took 22 days to get posted. 

Also, on the LSAC website, can anyone decipher a report that simply says "letter of reccommendation"?  It has L2 in the letter box.  I sent my first letter and apps at the same time.  So, I think schools got my first letter with the apps.  Does this report mean that my second letter has been sent to all the schools?  Thanks

"the die is cast", I haven't looked at anything since I sent them in.

Me too.  I promised myself that I would not look at them at all once I submitted them.  So far, so good.

Law School Applications / Is Adderall like steroids for the LSAT
« on: October 24, 2004, 11:28:13 AM »
Last May I took the Kaplan course.  In it, there was a group of guys I knew vaguely well and who were all consistently scoring in the mid 150s.  Then, very quickly, they all started scoring in the mid 160s.  After class one day I was congratulating them, and they told me that the reason their scores improved so much was because they had bought, and were all taking, adderall.  Toward the end of the class, one of them offered to sell me some.  Now, Im the kind of person who is generally weary about taking tylenol, so there is no way I was going to take adderall. However, I think there is a more important issue.  Is taking adderall, if not prescribed by the doctor, cheating?

Law School Applications / Re: addendum, etc... advice needed

If the LSAT predicts success, then i think that a 166 means you will do well.  I Just feel like the AdComms may think that explaining a 166, for whatever reason, is silly.  That being said, you may be able to pull it off well.  I'm not on the committees.  Just my thoughts.  Bests

I know that at least one of the KAPLAN books contains questions they wrote.  I took the class and am looking at the book right now.

Law School Applications / Re: Really Need Advice on LS App!!!
« on: October 23, 2004, 11:49:28 PM »
IMO an MIP is not that big of a deal, and if deal with efficiently is not a major problem.  However, I think you run into problems when you try to explain/justify with a long and sketchy sounding story (Im sure its all true, but I'd bet the AdComms would be suspicous).  I think you need to give the facts and illustrate how the failure to identify thing is a joke. 

If it were me, I wouldn't go into the story about a gross margarita and a forgetful waiter.

Yeah, your GPA is a huge plus.  You can check school applicant breakdowns here.
