Hey guys.

So I applied to mostly PT programs and have been accepted to them.

I didn't apply to FT programs, but a couple gave me the choice to go FT if I wanted.

These are all second tiers.

The schools I got in as a PT student are far superior.

My goal is still to land a degree in a Top 25 school.  So yes, my goal is to do well enough as a 1L to be able to transfer out.

My question is, if I go to a PT program, can I transfer into a T25 fulltime program?  Or would I have to wait until I take my classes I'm lacking my summer after my first year?

I don't know if I'd meet the minimum requirements to be able to transfer, let alone meet the deadlines for transfer students once taking the classes in the summer.  Or can I apply with my summer classes pending?  Any insight would be great!  ;D ;D ;D :D :D :D :D :D

Law School Applications / Accepted to PT, but wanna go FT?
« on: April 16, 2008, 10:27:08 AM »
I just got accepted to a 2nd Tier school to a PT program.  I got accepted to other 2nd Tiers FT programs.  The one I got accepted to PT, is the one I want to go to.  However, I didn't even apply to their FT program. 

Just wondering, how possible is it to get them to reconsider me for FT admission?  Is it even worth asking for?  I hope they wouldn't put me into the regular applicant pool and then reject me.  That would suck.

Any input would be great guys.

I only slept for 2.5 hours before the exam...just couldn't fall asleep.

I found this test pretty easy compared to most of the recent LSATs I've taken as practice tests.


BUT...I got caught in a downward spiral of negative thinking after the first section [the only section I aced, or even finished].  I wasn't used to taking the test in rapid succession of sections, and couldn't concentrate during the start of the next section. This triggered me into a terrible testing mode that I've never experienced before.  I knew of all the positive mantras to keep yourself confident, but they just didn't seem to allow me to refocus and if they did, it was way too late by then.  I hit wall after wall and everything I had read, didn't register.  I had to re-read question after question and was still unable to pick an answer confidently, something I was able to do during practice exams.  My average during practice has been in the 160s, but combined with a new environment and this inability to pick myself up, I absolutely know I had performed a lot worse than any test I have taken, including my diagnostic.  By the time was up for each of the next 4 sections, I wasn't able to get to at least the last 5 questions.  Sooo, I know I MUST cancel this test...

My GPA from a top-15 undergrad school is incredibly low, making this test my only saving grace...


I can't wait another year and apply next cycle, that is not an option I am willing to consider.  This leaves me with the Feb. '07 administration as the sole opportunity for giving me any chance to get into ANY law school. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I know at least some law schools accept the Feb. LSAT, and was wondering if I would have any chance of getting into them.  Can anyone direct me to people who have submitted only their Feb. LSAT and still got into schools for the immediate coming cycle?  Have any of you done so?  My GPA is a 2.6.  What score would I need to be able to get into a tier-2 law school?  Also, what schools are known not to widely discriminate against a Feb. LSAT. 

I am aware that competition at this point is extremely high, because most schools have rolling admission and have already secured many of the available admission slots. 

I just want to know if I have any realistic chance for this cycle, or are my dreams for '07 pretty much crushed...

Studying for the LSAT / OMG WTF...Dilemma! Help!
« on: September 25, 2006, 07:37:59 PM »
I know there are tons of postpone threads out there but my situation is a little different.

So I'm signed up for the Sept. LSAT and find myself underprepared, scoring around 160.  I've only taken 4 exams so far, and am obviously needing more practice.  I graduated in '05 with a 2.5 GPA from a top15 undergraduate school and have been doing oddjob public interest things since then.  My goal was to rock the Sept. LSAT with a 170 or above and then be able to apply early decision to some 1st tier schools that I feel I can be able to get into, despite my low GPA.  Since my whole plan was to become a splitter, and now that I don't think I will be able to become one as of yet, I'm seriously thinking about postponing my LSAT date to Dec.

My question lies in determining the cost/benefit of taking the test now and getting a lower score but still being able to apply early, or to postone the test and getting a higher score but not being able to apply early.

Please help out this freaking out freak... :-\


Did I mention, my LSAT score is a do or die situation for my hopes of getting to any tier one schools....
