Studying for the LSAT / LSAT-related emails
« on: March 01, 2006, 11:56:43 AM »
Have you all been receiving emails from law schools congratulating you on your score and offering fee-waivers?

My favorite so far:

Greetings and congratulations on your performance on the February LSAT!

We are pleased to announce that the University of St. Thomas School of Law has received full accreditation from the American Bar Association. The American Bar Association’s House of Delegates voted on February 13 to grant the accreditation at its midyear meeting in Chicago-- six months ahead of schedule. In addition, the University of St. Thomas School of Law has been ranked the No. 1 law school in the country for “Best Quality of Life” among students, according to the Princeton Review’s newly published book, The Best 159 Law Schools. Read the full article at:

We encourage you to take a look at our law school at Because we are convinced that you will find our mission and vision compelling, we have waived your application fee.  Simply click on the following link and complete an electronic application:

Please feel free to contact me with any questions about our community or our admissions process. 


Cari Haaland
Director of Admissions

Let me get this straight, Cari. The most important thing you want me to know about your school is that it's accredited? I find this incredibly amusing...

2 relax. The last three times scores were released, many posters received them before noon, and most received scores between noon and five. Not one poster has received his score yet today and it's already past one.

So go see a movie. See a show. Take a jog around the park. I'll call you when they're in.

Studying for the LSAT / Tutor
« on: February 14, 2006, 11:06:18 AM »
For all those who have used a private LSAT tutor:

1. How much did (s)he charge? Did you feel you got your money's worth?
2. How long did your sessions last? How many times a week?
3. Where did you meet? Your place? The tutor's place? A nearby library?
4. Did (s)he have a lesson plan or was it less structured?
5. What would you change about your tutor? What was the best thing about your tutor?

If you could help me out, I'd really appreciate it. I'm tutoring my first two students next week!

Studying for the LSAT / LSATisfied?

What'd you all think? I thought the test was more difficult than recent tests (more forgiving scale hopefully), but I felt I performed fairly well. Especially on the writing sample!

I'm planning on taking 3-4 tough reading comp sections this week to ready myself for the test next Saturday. Can anyone recommend specific tests that have tough RC sections? 'Twould be much appreciated! :)

Studying for the LSAT / 179
« on: January 15, 2006, 09:26:38 PM »
I just got a 179, my best score ever!  ;D

This thread doesn't really have a point, but I had to share the news with somebody. Everyone else is sleeping....

Studying for the LSAT / December or February?
« on: October 26, 2005, 06:05:05 AM »
I have been enrolled in a Powerscore course for the past month with the intent to take the December LSAT, but am torn whether to actually take the December test or wait until February. I have been working 60 hour weeks, and will continue to work long hours until the end of the year, after which my job will slow down significantly. My reasoning is that if I wait until February, I will have two months to review all of the concepts I've learned in the Powerscore class in a relatively stress-free environment. I won't be applying to law school for a few years, so there is no admissions benefit for me to take the December test. The deadline for the December LSAT is in a few days, so I would appreciate your advice. Is there any reason not to wait until February?

Studying for the LSAT / Actual LSAT vs. Diagnostic
« on: October 14, 2005, 08:32:14 AM »
Has anyone ever received a lower score on the actual LSAT than they got on their initial diagnostic? I feel I may be a trailblazer in this respect. For some reason I aced my initial diagnostic, and have been f-ing up sections ever since.....
