Studying for the LSAT / logic game must be true questions
« on: February 06, 2009, 04:14:25 PM »
I am pretty good at answering the must be true questions that also give some background info but I am terrible at answering those that in a single sentence say: "which of the following mus be true?" And no other info.

Can someone explain the procedure? Thanks!

Law School Admissions / small mistake on application
« on: February 06, 2009, 05:24:19 AM »
I thought I reviewed my applications thoroughly, but due to my Jewish luck I realized a small error on one of the applications. I forgot to put an 'x' in the box where it asked if I was born in the USA or not, but then on the next line it asked where I was born and I wrote my birthplace.

What should I do? will this error be taken heavily??

Can somebody please read my PS. It is the first draft and I think it's kinda weak. I just need some feedback from someone other than my parents at this point.


I'll forward it to whoever is interested.

Question 1)Does each school require its own personal statement or do I just write one standard one and attach it to my applications?

Question 2) How long does it take to fill out an application (time wise)

Question 3) I am retaking the LSAT in February. Should I have my applications in before then or wait till I take it?

Thanks everyone!

Studying for the LSAT / Terrible LSAT--Retaking in Feb?
« on: October 26, 2008, 06:31:02 AM »
I dont think I will have enough time to study for december. February is a safer bet. I got a 155 on my first lsat and I still want a 162-168. If I retake in Feb, can I still get into law school for  the fall 2009 semester?

Law School Admissions / Is It really THAT fast?

Does getting accepted/rejected really happen within the same month that you send in your application?

To those that read my previous post about LSDAS, I finally registered, and I don't know what took me so long but I was under the impression that acceptance/rejection letters only come in the spring. Don't ask why I thought this but I did.

Law School Admissions / A pretty general question
« on: September 30, 2008, 12:03:13 PM »
I am taking my first LSAT this saturday, and am pressuring my professors to complete my LORs by sometime soon (maybe 3rd week of october)

Is it ok that I didnt register for LSDAS yet? and that I didnt start filling out applications? It is ok to wait until I see what I get on the LSAT?

Thanks everyone

Studying for the LSAT / Bubbling In questions and technique
« on: September 29, 2008, 06:05:17 AM »
I'm so scared that I wont have time to finish bubbling in a few answers.

what is your guys' technique for each section. I think the best way to go about the games is to bubble in after each game, but I have no set technique for the other sections.

Also....say the proctor calls time and u missed bubbling in 2 or 3 answers but you remember them by heart, or write them down somewhere. Can you sorta slide your hand over to that sections bubbling area and sorta fill it in as you are doing a different section, or will my score be cancelled forever?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.


Law School Admissions / General Application Questions
« on: August 26, 2008, 08:46:49 AM »
A few questions:

I am taking my first LSAT this October, and plan to enter law school in September 09. When should I register for LSDAS and fill out applications and the like?

Also, how many personal statements do I need? Should I just write one general statement or write a new one for each school.

What is considered a good recommendation letter? I have a few attorney friends who will write them for me, as well as a few professors? should I camp outside the local congressman's office for his recommendation as well? =)

Thanks for your help guys!

Studying for the LSAT / General LSAT question
« on: August 13, 2008, 12:33:10 PM »
I know most people take the LSAT once or twice but is it ok to take it more than that? What if I don't like my scores on the first and second try?
