Law School Applications / Why is Drexel Law so selective?
« on: May 24, 2011, 03:44:57 PM »
I can't imagine how this school attracts LSAT scores in the range 156-162....

It is a T4 school

The Law School itself is only about five years old

Saturated Legal Market

I'm just surprised people would go there without serious scholarship offers.

What a joke this test is....

Studying for the LSAT / I'm giving up on Law School....
« on: May 05, 2011, 11:54:00 PM »
I have applied to 13 schools, and got rejected from 12 of them (Widener University was the only school that admitted me, and they initially waitlisted me so that shows how little they thought of me). ....

With a 150 LSAT and 2.7 GPA, I simply am not Law School Material.

I am currently enrolled in a Kaplan test prep class, and it has been an eye opener. Despite driving 30 miles back and forth 3 days a week in addition to an $1800 investment my LSAT score hasn't improved one bit. In essence my score is what it is, and evidently it is not good enough to get into law school.

Moreover.... I give up.... I don't want it badly enough anymore...... They say I'm too stupid..... Maybe I am? Maybe they are wrong? In the end we will never know for sure. Case and point as to why the LSAT cannot accruately predict law school success. People with low LSAT scores simply aren't given the opportunity to fail.  If getting into law school is this difficult, I can't imagine the struggle it must be to get a job. It just seems like the cards are stacked against you.

At this point I am going to begin to re-test the job market, in the hopes that I can land a position that leads to a successful and satisfying career. It's been an awful first year out of college that has featuerd rejection from both the workforce and academia. Perhaps the rejections have been blessing in disguise. Eventually if I live long enough someone is going to give me an opportunity, and when they do, I will not take it for granted...


What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore--
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?

I just took a Kaplan diagnostic exam...

150 score same as my LSAT

I got 76% of my Logical Reasoning questions right

35% of Logic Games

41 % of Reading Comprehension

I had one Logical Reasoning Section which I got 21/25... On my RC and LG combined I got 19 correct answers...


What does this tell you?

Law School Applications / How do you defer your application?
« on: March 09, 2011, 11:57:38 PM »
I am new to the application process...

I applied to a few schools, before the LSAC has published my Letters of Recommendation. I also want to revise my personal statements. Can I call the Law School and ask them to put my application on hold?

Is this good enough to get into a T3?

The worst decision I have ever made in my life thus far was the decision to apply to Law School.

Four months ago, I was fresh out of college and enjoying life. I had a job, a girlfriend, hobbies, etc.....

When I decided that I would try law school I'd never imagined the negative effect that it would have on me as a person.

 I have spent all my free time studying for a stupid test that I don't have the capability of doing well on. In the process I have performed poorly at work, lost my girlfriend, and have become lazy and unmotivated. 

I have dropped over a thousand dollars on the LSAT, CAG, Transcripts, and test material

The LSAC refuses to authorize my transcript, because I took a class for shits and kicks during the summer of my junior year that had no impact on my overall GPA or graduation at a different institution.

Lawyers are a dime a dozen anyway..... I mean, the law is the law..... It's not open for interpretation....

I'm giving up on this crap...... I'm going to University of Pheonix law..... I'm going to take my classes online.... Earn a JD on my own time....

Who needs the ABA? Also... How about all the law school urging me to apply, only so they can reject me and boost their percentages? I don't mind if a Tier 4 school does that, but when I see schools like Notre Dame and William and Mary trying to trick me into applying, I had to reply "Go @#!* yourselves, you aren't getting any of my money"!!!!


I'm not going to spend my entire life studying for a test that you can't study for. I'm ready to LEARN MATERIAL....

I'm not going to continue pouring money into an industry that wants me to fail....

Law School Applications / My Personal Statement What do you think?
« on: February 15, 2011, 12:15:09 AM »
Dear Admission Counselor at University of Baltimore (I live in Baltimore, and want to be home),

I scored low on the LSAT/ Hath not a Low LSAT candidates  eyes? Hath not a low LSAT candidates hands, organs/ dimensions, senses, affections, passions; fed with/ the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject/ to the same diseases, heal'd by the same means/ warm'd and cool'd by the same winter and summer/ as a High LSAT candidate is? If you prick us, do we not bleed?/ If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you/ poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?

THUS (You law people like this word for some reason)

I am the every bit the same as a high LSAT candidate.

Sincerely,

LSATFailure2011
