Studying for the LSAT / Will this study method work for 148 -> 160's?
« on: August 11, 2011, 05:44:37 PM »
Hey guys,

I just took my first practice test out of a Princeton Review book today, and I scored 148. I had no idea what was even on the LSAT - that's why I took the practice test! It probably wasn't the smartest thing to do, considering I didn't know what to expect at all, but at least I didn't completely bomb it.

My goal is mid 160's, and I think I can do it considering that 1) I know what to expect, 2) I have until December because that's when they're administering it at Purdue, and 3) I have the easiest class load I'm gonna get in my last four semesters of school. I'm planning on spending 4 hours a day, 4-5 days a week in the library working on homework, and once I'm finished it's LSAT time. I've scheduled a few lessons out of the Princeton Review book a day, and between now and December I will have taken between 4 and 6 practice tests.

I'm really looking to get into some good IP schools on the east coast - something like Fordham, UNH, even BU (I'm a chemistry major at Purdue, so pharmaceutical IP interests me!). Can someone either tell me if I'm on the right track or suggest alternative methods?

Thanks a lot,

Incoming 1Ls / Slightly Discouraged Science Major

I'm majoring in chemistry and minoring in professional writing at Belmont University, a liberal arts school in Nashville, TN. I transferred from Purdue University in the fall, mostly because I wasn't a fan of the environment, and I also wanted to pursue music (I have one demo out, a concept album I wrote, with more on the way).

I currently have a 3.0 GPA - it won't get any lower than that, probably a max of 3.3 - and I realize that isn't nearly good enough for most good law schools as defined by U.S. News and the like. I have overcome great adversity, culminating with just recently being diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. I am expected to graduate Fall 2012, and will be preparing for the LSAT most likely starting light in the fall, then continuing through to the summer before graduation.

I was wondering if there's any real chance of me getting into a good school for IP law (and more specifically, patent/grant writing) with credentials like a 3.0 GPA. Will a great personal letter or addendum make up for that GPA, considering what I went through my first 2 1/2 years? I'm confident with the LSAT material, and I definitely want to prove that my GPA is not reflective of my ability.

Thanks for your help in advance!
