Welcome!

This thread was inspired by the original Exile LSD thread, but my hope is that this version of Exile will be completely uncensored. It's my intent that the posters in this thread feel comfortable to discuss whatever they'd like, without the need to be concerned about what anyone else thinks. There are no negative repercussions for posting in this thread. Your standing within society will remain intact.   

If any topic or post is against the rules of this discussion board, the posters in this thread would appreciate a moderator's explanation of those rules. I'm hopeful that a common topic of discussion will be related to legal issues, but the topics are in no way limited to any particular subject.

I may very well end up being the only poster. Hold on to your hats! 

* In the upcoming days, weeks, and months you may find that the thread is in-between topics. Next time you see it up there at the top of the 200 prelaw unreads, then you know we're ready to go.

*Sometimes things pop up..and you have to change your plans just a bit. But, if you guys bear with me, I think we'll be just fine. I'm still considering possible additions to the scope of this thread, as well as the format of the thread.

All of these changes will be detailed derailed right here!

I have authorization from someone who has said "write me a draft, I'll look it over & make changes and then send it in"

I hate this idea. I've read the Montauk book & Ivey & Estrich..but the bottom line is that I've never written a recommendation for someone, and it's especially hard to write one for myself. I've never been able to really give myself a good pat on the back..and this is something that requires that ability..

I've given this person tons of info on what a good letter should look like (made copies of the relevant portions of all of those book), and I provided them a LONG list of my qualities and ideas for what should be on the letter.

This person also knows me extremely well.

Any direction here? Have you done this? What helped you? I'm about to work it to where either they write the letter, or I just go to someone else.

I just feel really stupid trying to put my own words in someone elses mouth.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / GPA - 25% median question
« on: April 19, 2009, 09:23:49 PM »
Hi LSD'ers,

Is it true that the GPA of an accepted student that is below the schools 25% median is not considered in that school's US News ranking calculation?

Thanks!

Studying for the LSAT / Games in PT 23 are hard
« on: March 12, 2009, 04:58:47 PM »
Game 2 was sent from hell. The most difficult thing about them, with the exception of game 1, is that they are very time consuming.

I'd love to hear from someone who finished this section on time and with decent accuracy. I got -4 in 45 minutes. Pathetic. I jumped ahead and looked at the scale: 84 for a 170..that made me feel a little better.

Also, if you did ok on this section, how did you learn games? LGB...TM course..

Thanks!

Studying for the LSAT / All Star Test Prep
« on: January 07, 2009, 07:34:50 PM »
LSAT All Star is a great poster. It's pretty obvious that he/she knows the LSAT quite well.

I'm wondering, has anybody purchased the books for sale under 'All Star Test Prep'?

I'm considering it, and thought I'd check for opinions before I do.

Thanks!

Studying for the LSAT / Answer sheet in actual test booklet
« on: August 04, 2008, 08:46:47 PM »
This may be a stupid question..

I'm curious about the answer sheet. I'm assuming the actual LSAT comes in a booklet similar to the PT's, with an answer sheet in the front of the booklet.

Is that correct? I understand the different strategies of either bubbling in each individual answer, or bubbling after each page, passage, or logic game. I'm figuring that because of this group bubbling strategy, the answer sheet must be STUCK to the front of the booklet & you have to keep flipping back and forth.

Thanks!

General Off-Topic Board / Search Function?
« on: July 08, 2008, 10:05:50 PM »
Hi, just wondering where the search function is for the forum? I've looked all over...

I know search functions for forums usually suck..but thought I'd narrow it down a bit.

Thanks for any help!
