Current Law Students / Another Issue Spotting Question
« on: October 08, 2009, 07:20:33 PM »
What is the best approach to exam taking.  I took a mock exam and decided to take the thorough explanation approach.  However, I only had time for very few issues.  Another student opted the a more shallow .issue approach.  He found more issues but lacked substance about those issues.  Which approach should one take?  This question is obviously for upper level students.  Please 1L's do not chime in.

Current Law Students / Bored already
« on: September 21, 2009, 01:38:32 PM »
This cannot be a good sign but I am bored already.  My motivation level has reached dangerously low.  What tha hell???!!!

If you had a full ride to Texas Southern would you go?  I am fully aware of the reputation they have.

I was just accepted to law school and was wondering what books or reading or prep course would be good for me going into law school?  What would you suggest that you wished you did or what did you actually do to help prepare you for the transition?  Thanks a bunch for taking the time out of your busy schedule.

please read ps and i will reciprocate.  private message me.  thanks

Black Law Students / Thread for LSAT 145- 149 scores
« on: December 30, 2008, 04:58:53 PM »
Ok if you have clicked on this link then you have the same questions and feel the same way as other 145's-149's.  The feeling is gut wretching.  The one question is who the hell will let us throw the doors with these scores.  This thread is for you.  I will begin by stating that I have scored a 146 on the December 08 LSAT.  I have a 4.0 gpa, however this has not been calculated by LSAC or LDAS (whichever does the calculations).  I have several "perks" on my resume/personal statement to include military disabled veteran, small business owner, and co-founder of a non-profit.  I say all this to say that in the end my LSAT is a 146.  This is all that may really matter.  However, I have not been admitted or denied as of yet, so I do not know if my "perks" mean anything.  Speaking of admittance this thread is made for a point of reference for all of us in the lower 30 (percent that is).  As always, as I am sure you have heard, your gpa will be a variable as well as your personal statement etc.  With that said please feel free to post your local law school that will accept us for info purposes. 

In Texas if your score is between 145- 149 you will have a moderate chance at the following:

Texas Southern U.,
South Texas (slightly less),
Saint Mary (San Antonio),
Texas Weselyan (Ft. Worth). 

In the neighboring states of Texas you will have a moderate chance at

Loyola Uni in New Orleans
Oklahoma City Uni

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / 146 lsat 3.0 gpa

I am just curious if any of you are in the same boat as I am...wondering who the hell would let you in the doors in '09.  I will start off by saying that I welcome the added "minority" clause in the admissions process.  I am a disabled vet and business owner.  I have also started a non-profit orginazation.  I hope this will seperate me from the rest, assuming my LSAT score does not subject my application to the immediate "next" list.  But seriously, has anyone ever heard of anyone being rejected from Texas Southern or Texas Weselyan before?  These may be my last hope.  For those in my shoes, where are you applying?
