Oh Canada! / Re: Joint LLB/JD through Osgoode/NYU

From what I know there are three joint JD/LLB programs, Osgoode/NYU, Ottawa/Michigan State and Windsor/Detriot Mercy, there might be another but I do not know.

The better Ottawa program is with American University's Washington College of Law.  While this American institution comes nowhere near having the prestige of NYU, it is a better school for employment prospects than either MSU or Detroit Mercy, I would think.

The Detroit Mercy JD doesn't go all that far in the States.  I would advise you to think very carefully before plonking down a large amount of your money to study at the University of Detroit Mercy.

If one were planning to apply this fall in the hope of matriculating next year, would a score from the February 2005 LSAT be acceptable for schools that want a score from an LSAT taken in the last three years?  I'd like to know whether such schools want an LSAT score from within three years of your date of application or if any score from 2005 and on will do.

Hi, folks.  Has anyone reading this thread used a tutor for one-on-one intensive LSAT preparation in the weeks leading up to their test date?  I am in a foreign country and do not have access to LSAT tutors over here.  At this point, I need a major boost in my score and I cannot do it on my own.  As much as 50-60 hours of instruction may be required, but LSAT tutors may have other ideas.

I propose to fly to the States and get what I need over there.  Within reason, I am willing to go just about anywhere; I just want the best bang for my buck.  (The "best bang for my buck" requirement should all but rule out TestMasters, Powerscore, etc.)

As I am quite busy with work and I will be using my vacation time to prepare, this is the only viable option for me.  Right now, I am thinking about the three-week or so period leading up to the October administration.  Owing to their lengths, regular commercial courses in the States are not an option; I don't have that much vacation time!   ;D

Recommendations, anyone?

Studying for the LSAT / Kaplan LSAT Summer Intensive Program
« on: June 29, 2008, 02:41:42 AM »
Does anyone know people who have taken the following program?  I'm trying to figure out if it's worth the outrageous price.  There is no decent test prep (in either tutor or course form) in the city where I currently reside, and I may have to do something like take this kind of program to prep properly for the LSAT.  Self-prep is not an option.  The LSAT is the very bane of my existence.   ;D

That's a helpful suggestion, Jeffort!  I have so edited.

Studying for the LSAT / Average length of prep time for LSAT
« on: May 25, 2008, 07:20:49 AM »
From reading the posts of many in this forum, it seems that my efforts to cram all of that LSAT learning into one month may have been unusual and not recommended.  (Particularly for someone who is not an "LSAT natural".)

How long did you take to prepare for the LSAT?  If you're not shy and you wish to contribute honestly, please add to the thread:

  • the length of time you spent preparing;
  • your diagnostic/initial LSAT score;
  • your method(s) of preparation;
  • your dedication to your LSAT test preparation/discipline; and
  • the score that you achieved on the big day.

This information could prove to be useful (inspirational, even) to people struggling with modest LSAT scores to date as they search for optimal preparation strategies.  Yes, I know that people learn and test in wildly different ways, but it can't hurt to help set some goalposts, guidelines, benchmarks, etc., even if the stories are anecdotal and the sample is not statistically significant.
