1L job search / Public Defender's Office Internship - Good for a 1L?
« on: February 20, 2010, 12:04:57 AM »
Hey all,

I was recently offered a summer position at a very large PD's office (county), and I am leaning towards accepting. Before I commit, I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience at a PD's office and could shed some light on what an internship would be like, especially for a 1L.

Much appreciated. 

Law School Applications / Feb 1 -- too late to apply?
« on: January 16, 2009, 07:25:32 PM »
Got a very late start with my apps, and am wondering if it's simply too late in the game to apply.  Should I just wait for another cycle, or go ahead now?  As far as the schools I'm applying to, they are mid-tier schools, in the 40-80 range (i.e st. johns, brooklyn...)

Thanks for the help, you guys are the best.

Where should I go next fall? / 3.5 161 lsat...georgetown pt?
« on: November 03, 2008, 11:24:01 PM »
I know it's a reach, but according to the ABA, the 25% - 75% lsat is 160 and 167...
With a 3.5 gpa from a very good undergrad school, and good softs, do you think there is a decent chance of admittance?
With these numbers, do you guys have any other recommendations for decent programs I should look into..I feel like my numbers are too low for good schools and way above for a lot of crappier schools.  Thanks for the advice everyone.

Personal Statement / PS swap/review/comment

Anyone want to swap PS's and offer each other advice?

I have finished a first draft, so I would prefer to work with someone who is in a similar position.

Studying for the LSAT / LG section in the oct 4th test question
« on: October 08, 2008, 05:02:07 PM »
Hey everyone. Please excuse me if what i ask is banned material...if it is I will gladly send an apology, etc to whoever, but I think that this question should be kosher.

I took the oct 4th lsat, and am (like many of you) mulling over my performance.  I have been thinking about the LG section, in particular the last game, because I guessed on most of the questions due to time constraints, and marked C for the ones that I guessed.

My question is this -- for that last and final game, the complex one about the bus stops, were any of the answers C?  I'm not asking which questions were answered by C (if any)...i just simply want to know if the answer C came up at all.  Please be confident that you nailed this section of the test before answering, as it wont help me if you were in the same boat as me and guessed. 

Thanks a bunch.


Studying for the LSAT / experimental lr in oct 4 test

Hey all oct 4 lsat takers.

i have a simple q: my order of sections was lr, rc, lr, lr, lg

I'm wondering what the experimental section was, and how you are sure?

thanks, and i hope that the test went well for everyone!

Studying for the LSAT / help with a plateau in studying
« on: May 12, 2008, 01:57:41 PM »
Hey everyone,
I'm currently a student over at kaplan enrolled in a great course.  I really like the professor and my score has dramatically improved (started out cold at a diag done by kaplan and got a 145) but my test last week was 161. The problem is, with both my studying and my testing im stuck at a plateau.  I keep on missing several LR, a couple of science RC, and then games are always like going into uncharted water for me. 

Truthfully I dont think i can study anymore than I currently am (around 3 hrs a day).
So can anyone give me some advice on how I can break through this nasty plateau?  I'm considering getting a powerscore logic games bible, but do you think that would just confuse me since i'm in a different course? 

what did you guys do if you hit a plateau?
