Studying for the LSAT / Houston Area LSAT Prep
« on: February 04, 2011, 09:17:26 PM »
I just learned that my internship dates down in Houston don't match up with any Powerscore or Testmasters course dates, so I was wondering if anyone on here knew of any excellent tutors in Houston who offer private lessons.  I'd prefer if he/she taught a Powerscore or Testmasters course at one point or still do because I've heard that the Powerscore/Testmasters method to test-taking yields the best results.

Woah.  That was unnecessarily long.

Shorter version: Can anyone recommend a tutor in the Houston area who has taught or still teachers for Powerscore/Testmasters?

Where should I go next fall? / Engineering UG

Hey.  I'm an Energy Engineering UG (effectively ChemE, but focused on energy systems) who is contemplating law school.  I plan on taking the LSAT in the fall, but wanted to know if I was wasting my time before I began a few months of intense studying.

These are my "stats:"
-Penn State
-Schreyer Honors College (Penn State's HC)
-3.85 GPA (I am wondering if law schools will understand why it isn't closer to a 4.00 because I'm doing engineering.  Hoping to find that out here!)
-Research Experience
-Written Thesis
-Internship Experience

I am contemplating Energy Policy, Environmental Policy, Patent Law, IP Law, etc.  Does anyone have any insight on whether or not I'm somewhat qualified and what LSAT score I should be looking for to get into a top law school?  I'd like to stay in New York, or maybe go to Boston.

Thank you all for your time!
