Recommendations / Will these LORs from the following people be sufficient?
« on: December 28, 2007, 03:42:10 PM »
So far I have three LORs processed, none of them from professors, and I am mulling to get a fourth one from a professor.  I wonder if getting that additional one is worth the extra time.  The LORs I have are from the following people:

1.  State Supreme Court Judge that I interned for
2.  Prosecutor that I interned for (I interned in a foreign country, at the foreign country's prosecutors office)
3.  Partner in a patent law firm that I interned for (multinational firm, interned in a foreign country)

All 3 of the aforementioned wrote a recommendation on my writing and reasoning abilities.  Do you guys think an LOR from academia is necessary?

I took this past LSAT and received a very good score.  Subsequently, I have been receiving e-mails from various law schools inviting me to apply and, as an incentive, waiving my application fee.  All the e-mails were generic, mass-mailings targeted to those that had a certain test score.

My question is this:  Does receiving e-mails from various schools increase my probability of acceptance, should I apply to these schools?

Studying for the LSAT / Did I take a completely different test?
« on: September 30, 2007, 10:17:58 PM »
I took the September 2007 LSAT at a foreign location.  It seems to me, after reading posts about the September 2007 LSAT on this forum, that I took an entirely different test.  None of the reading comprehension or logic games that are mentioned in posts about the September 2007 LSAT were in the September 2007 LSAT that I took. 

The two reading comprehension passages that I had on my September 2007 LSAT dealth with (the ones that I can remember):  an economic explanation of crime; Darwin and scientists that defy the status quo (comparative passage); a famous contract case that addressed the issue of interpretation (comparative passage); women in Native American societies; a theory about Bach; and semiconductors.  The logic games that I had on my September 2007 LSAT dealt with:  camping equipment, types of hats, and teaching languages.  Did anyone else have a September 2007 LSAT that had these reading comprehension and logic games?

I know the rule of thumb is that applications should be turned in by the end of November, around the time of Thanksgiving.  Will an applicant's chances be that diminished by a December application - i.e., one turned in right after receiving the December LSAT score?  For example, will an applicant with a 170+ LSAT that turned in the application at the end of November have that much of a higher chance of in getting accepted to a t14 than an applicant who has the same score but turned in the application at the end of December?

I know that by the end of December law schools have less spots to fill, but will it be that much more difficult for a 170+ LSAT applicant to be accepted?
