Studying for the LSAT / PS, addendum and URM questions
« on: March 14, 2006, 05:14:38 PM »
I posted this on another board and did not get many responses, hoping I can get more answers here:

1. As I understand it, one must write a PS when applying to Law School.However, I have been reading about people putting in Addendums. When and/or what circumstance would require one to do write Addendum?

2. As far as stating about URM status, does one place that in the PS, Addendum or is that a different animal in light of the PS?

3.Does one submit the addendum the same time as the PS or at some time later after submission?

4. If I am of Asian/Pacific Islander decent would I be considered a URM here in California? I looked up in LSAC's FAQ's and they said that Asians are considered URMS but, someone mentioned that in California Asians are not considered URM's. Any truth to this? Can anyone confirm?

Studying for the LSAT / I think I am doomed!

I am begining to think that I must not be cut out to pass the LSAT thereby not having the opportunity to go to law school. Here's my gig: took the LSAT June 05 and scored a miserable 133! Took a course from one of those test prep places and my diags never passed the 140s. So I purchased the bibles (logical reasoning, games) and am a quarter way through both of them. Prior to reading these books I decided to take an untimed test to see if I had at least grasped anything and I got a 143.
Just last night I took a timed test and scored a miserable 134 (again). I am totally out of my mind! I can't be that dumb what is up? I have been studying daily since the 1st of February. So my plan of action now is to go through each chapter of both books again and try to devote a day for each chapter until the June 06 LSAT. Short of trying to memorize each and every chapter I fear that I will not be able to reach my goal of 156 or higher on the LSAT.
Encouraging comments and suggestions are appreciated. Rude and heartless comments will not be tolerated.

Studying for the LSAT / Suggestions and experiences with silent timers

Any recommendations to buy, avoid or whatever on silent timers?

Thinking ahead, I want to gather ideas for my personal statement. Any suggestions?

Studying for the LSAT / 5 min warning during LSAT
« on: January 12, 2006, 02:07:06 PM »
I am having a disagreement with my Testmasters instructor, he took the June 2005 LSAT in Northern California and I happend to be in the same location as he. Anyway, he claims that during the LSAT test they did not give a 5 min warning before the end of each section. I told him that I recalled the proctors giving us a 5 min warning because I marked answers to the items I had yet to complete.  Those of you who took the LSAT, did you get a 5 min warning?
