Studying for the LSAT / Powerscore full course and misc prep quesitons.
« on: January 29, 2009, 09:03:38 PM »
I plan on enrolling into PowerScore's April-June full course in preparation for the June LSAT. No need to tell me self study as personally I am pretty set in my mind that it is worth it.

Anyway in the last few weeks I just started studying. I borrowed and went though Kaplan's 2009 comprehensive program book (instruction portion was rubbish but 3 practice "tests" were useful). Right now I plan to average at least 3 practice tests a week for the next eight weeks in getting myself ready for the class(pretending the 1st diagnostic is the real deal).

Since I'm taking the PS class anyway should I bother buying the Bibles? I'll already be thrown into PS system anyway so is my time better off just hitting as many tests possible or should I use this time to look at the bibles as a preview?

I guess as an example is it better if say only took 20 tests and have gone through the bibles prior to the class? or 30+ tests?

Also does the material in the full course PS prep package come with all three bibles?

LSAC and LSDAS / LSAC transcript questions
« on: January 15, 2009, 03:03:28 AM »
A few basic basic questions. Thank you in advance!!!

1. Does the transcript that schools see from the LSDAS show courses in their chronological order or just their own calculated GPA?

2. I already graduated from UG(june 07). If I take CC courses now to replace certain pre-req classes from my miserable first year of UG and I send those transcripts to LSAC, will it still show up on my LSDAS transcript or because it was taken post graduation they just ignore it completely?

I totally understand I am not "truly" replacing the grade since the grades i received were in the C range and that I am graduated already so technically my UG record is closed.

I guess the heart of the question is, is there any point to taking more classes post graduation just to have it seen on transcript or should I just include whatever I accomplish in my CC in the addendum?

For example in my first year I got a C- in elementary stats,  C in Calc B and a C in macroeconomics. Would there be any point in re-taking those classes now other then what I could discuss in the addendum?

3. How do classes/grades look from classes taken after grad? Are they just attached in a notes section?

Bonus question, just for kicks if anybody knows this answer as well.
I plan on going the joint degree MBA/JD route.

Does anybdoy know how B-schools interpret the above situation (re-taking courses of UG post-grad). Obviously B schools will be much more quant heavy so I'll need A's to show taht I can do it but aside from what I could say in an essay do B-schools take in the new grades as replacements or do they also just see it as a bonus note?
