Law School Admissions / Free Law School Admissions Seminar
« on: July 20, 2007, 09:36:43 PM »
How's it going everyone. Just wanted to let you know that you can take part in a free law school admissions webinar on Aug. 4. Go to  and follow the directions on how you can get a $150 web seminar absolutely free.

What's going on everybody? I wanted to let you all know about a recent interview I conducted with Saira Rao, author of the Chambermaid. Chambermaid is a comedy about a federal judicial clerk. If any of you plan on being a federal judge clerk, I'm sure you'll find the book humorous. You can read the interview here:

Getting to Maybe is a good one as is Law School Confidential. I flipped through a new book called Law School Insider. It looks like it has some good advice as well.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Is this a fluke, or have I nailed it?

I scored about 4 points lower on the real test than what I was practicing at. No matter how much you try to recreat the testing enviornment, you can't do it perfectly. Just keep working hard and stay relaxed on test day.

The games are definitely easier. But I wouldn't slack on preparing for the games. Those are easy points!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT Superstitions

When I took practice LSATs, I'd wear the same T-shirt and drink a Diet Mt. Dew. I did this on the the real deal as well. I think it was done more out of developing a rhythm than superstition.

I've seen it happen before. Someone who's not ready to take the LSAT does any way. Their head instantly explodes as they take on a hybrid grouping/sequencing game. Not only is the person dead, but everyone else in the testing center resents the distraction that head exploding person caused. As soon as they get home, they get on LSD to rant about head exploding person. Don't be head exploding person. Put off the test.

To the OP:
 I think most people have given you solid advice. Sell your car, your house, and all the crap you bought. If you really want to go to law school, you're going to have to start all over.

It depends on where your score is at right now and where you want it to be. If it's low and you want it to be much higher, you're going to need more than three months.

Financial Aid / Re: Best Way to See Credit Score?

While you do get a free credit report, you usually have to fork over some money to see your FICO credit score. If you want to get a free estimate of your FICO score, check out the following link:

It asks you 15 questions about your financial history. In the end it gives you a pretty close approximation of your credit score.
