Studying for the LSAT / Studying with a study partner
« on: September 15, 2006, 11:06:35 PM »
I finally got a study partner and I am at a loss as to how to approach studying in preparation for the LSAT.

We both have the bibles and the preptests. So, should we take a test together and then debrief it? What do you guys do? I know it seems obvious but I want to make sure I make the best of our time and making sure that the study time is worthwhile and helpful for the both of us.

Studying for the LSAT / Need help in setting up a spreadsheet
« on: September 15, 2006, 10:54:02 PM »
For those of you who has set up a spreadsheet to help them keep track of their performance on the preptests could you please give me ideas? Or send me a sample of your spreadsheet?

I am trying to figure out if I should it up with titles from the bibles. For instance have a column for each of the chapters of the LR bible. I wanted to put the items that I miss in the respective columns so I know where to concentrate.

Would appreciate any suggestions.

Studying for the LSAT / TM RC homework
« on: August 01, 2006, 11:30:18 PM »
OK this is bugging me. When I am doing the RC homework I can't stand it that they don't say what the right answer is, ie: a,b,c,d,e instead they give the word at the beginning of the sentence and the last word of the sentence where the answer should be.

Am I reading it wrong or what?

I have been corresponding with the Admissions office of my dream school. I guess I asked one too many questions and all of my emails were suddenly answered by the Dean. Nothing bad, he was very nice and had invited me to have a meeting with him. I will take this opportunity and meet with him.

Do you guys have any suggestions on what to ask/point out?

Of course I plan on wearing a nice business suit and I think I will bring copies of my resume. diversity statement, personal statement and GPA addendum. Should I bring all that stuff or just keep it informal? I know I will be nervous because this is the one and only school I will be applying to due to my job, family etc.

Suggestions would be appreciated

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Low GPA
« on: June 12, 2006, 01:01:44 PM »
I am wondering if my low GPA is going to keep me out of law school. It has been 26 years since high school and I have been attending college off and on since then. From 2003-2005 I finally worked my butt off and got my degree. Degree gpa came in at 2.93 but according to LSAC my cum gpa is a lousy 2.67!!

I have taken the LSAT once before (2005) and the score was very low. My practice scores are hitting at the 144 range. I will retake the LSAT this Sept. I am aiming at the very least for a 156 (hell, I really want 160 or higher of course).

1. Is 156 a decent score to aim for (lowest)given that my gpa is low?
I know I have to push myself to study harder and better this round, I am just tired (burned out) on the LSAT studying. I feel like I am spinning my wheels and my confidence is definately going for a spin. I know, I know, I gotta think positively in order to kick butt on this test.

2. When writing my personal statement should I address the low gpa? Do I explain the 4 classes that I got an F on individually? (Actually two of the classes were online and I totally forgot about being signed up for those classes) the two others happened when I was married and I had to abruptly quit the class cause I had an insecure husband - going to school caused too many problems between us. My last two years before obtaining my degree I pulled a solid B average so should I include that too?

Thanks in advance
