Studying for the LSAT / Not much progress
« on: July 10, 2009, 12:34:54 PM »
I took the (real) LSAT in 2003 and scored a 145. This was with no prep no study.
This past year I've decided to take it again. I took a pt after reading the lr/lg/rc bibles and scored 145 again.
I read them again and just scored a 147. My plan is to take the ps virtual course in August and take the LSAT in September. my goal is to get to a 155, i'm hoping (actually counting on) the virtual course to get me over the hump.
Any advise? Or is any in the same situation?

i'm struggling with the games (obviously) and I seem to be up and down on LR. RC is probably my wild card, although RC seems tougher than when I took the test in 2003.

I'm married with a three year old. My job is pretty flexible and would probably allow me to transfer.
I plan to continue working to support my family however I may take a step back to relieve some stress.
If I took anywhere from 9 to 12 hours and worked 40 hours per week when do I get my studing in? After class at night? On the weekend? I'm guess both.

Just wondering if anyone knew someone who juggled both.

Studying for the LSAT / Here is my probelm
« on: February 28, 2009, 05:49:24 PM »
I took the LSAT during my senior year of UG. Literally walked into the test room and took the LSAT. (no prep) Made a 145. I wasn't serious about the test at all. I didn't really know at the time if I wanted to go to ls. Well 6 years later I've changed my mind. I recently purchased the powerscore bibles and have gain a ton of knowledge I didn't have my first go around. I plan to take the LSAT in October. I plan to take 20-30 pt after the bibles, and maybe take the powerscore virtual course in May.

Is it possible for me to ge to 160s before October? I'm sure anything is possible but with the prep I'm planning is it really possible for me to get between a 160-165?

Choosing the Right Law School / 40hr work week and part time?
« on: February 15, 2009, 01:34:07 PM »
Does anyone have experience with working a 40 hour work week and going to LS part time?
The way I see it if you would have to take 9 to 12 hours per semester, this would be 6-9pm at least 4 days at week.
Is it possibly to get all your reading in? I know you have the weekend but getting in all the required reading during the week must be tough.

Financial Aid / Credit Scores for Grad Plus and Private loans
« on: July 28, 2008, 06:12:03 PM »
From what I'm reading your credit score for a Grad Plus loan doesn't have to be stellar. But what about private loans? I had a friend who took all private loans out for ls and he didn't have much credit history before school. Is there a particular score that you need?

Mine is in the low 700s with a couple of bureaus but only in the mid to upper 600s in another.
