General Board / BarBri or Law Preview?
« on: July 22, 2007, 09:07:08 PM »
Don't know if this question has been asked yet or not....but since the "search" icon is gone, I'll just repost.

Has anyone taken the Barbri or Law Preview prep courses before starting law school?  Any opinions on these 1 week courses that are $1000?  Is it worth it, or a total scam?

Studying for the LSAT / Free wisdom for those who care to listen.....
« on: April 06, 2007, 05:23:05 PM »
I've gotten a good number of PM's from LSAT students requesting advice.  The questions ranged from....  How much can I improve? How did you improve? What were you scoring right before the LSAT? etc...etc...etc...etc...etc.. ..

I completely understand the stress you guys are under and how much you JUST WANT someone to TELL YOU WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN.  so it can make you feel better and take away your worries, etc..etc..

BUT...i hate to tell you this, but the REALITY is.....you have NO IDEA what can happen on test day.  as much as you would like all the cards to line up perfectly ...it doesn't always work that way. the REALITY is, that anything can happen...someone can tap their fingers on the table, distract you, and you go down 5 pts. 

ALL YOU CAN DO!!!!!!!!!!!!  is study hard, try to conquer everything you can, (like tuning out noise, like an air-conditioner, or fire truck going by), work on your weaknesses, sharpen your techniques....and worry about what YOU HAVE CONTROL OVER.

There are people who scored 159's on three test-preps before taking the LSAT and went in and got a 165.  There are people who scored 177's on LSATs before the test, and got a 165.  (ironic, both stories had 165.)  There was a guy who scored in the 140's on practice, and came out with a 156.  And then, there is me, with a 160's average score, who ended with 154 and Entrance to UW!

My advice...
Don't worry so much about your LSAT score and the schools it will get you into.  Worry about making yourself the best LSAT test taker you can be, and everything else will follow...   ;)

Studying for the LSAT / To all the LRR haters out there....
« on: April 02, 2007, 06:37:02 PM »
hey dudes.....you know who you are with your comments like..."i could do better than you in 2 sections than you do on the entire test."  or "i'm done shitting on you."  or "how the f*ck did wisconsin accept you?!"   some of you have even gone so far as putting my picture next to bin laden!!!

the funny thing is........i admit that you're smarter than me.  i admit that i make mistakes.  i admit that i took the LSAT five times and was defeated every time!  YES...I SUCK!!  my scores and story are all on here!!!!!!!  i admit that i use the dictionary often to post on this board....even when i used the word "oblique"....i had to make sure i was using it correctly. and sure......who knows?? bin laden just might share some of my mirror-cracking features.

so.............i don't know what else you want from me?  cause, i'm not here to compete with you.  YOU WIN, I LOSE!!!

oddly, i'm reminded of the book "the count of monte cristo", when ferdinand was pissed off when he got a horse for christmas, while dantes ran off overjoyed that he got a whistle.

Studying for the LSAT / happiest day of my life!
« on: March 28, 2007, 02:27:07 PM »
hey kids....

i know this is the wrong board to be posting this. but i mostly post on this board anyways, so whatever....

i got my first letter of law school acceptance today!!!  i took the LSAT 5 times.  my scores were 150, 151, 152, 154, and one cancellation.  i have a 3.23 gpa from Penn State University.  my numbers are low, but i wrote a killer personal statement.  i got into University of Wisconsin - Madison.  I think it's a Top 30 law school.

just wanted to tell all you LSAT kids, that there is more than one way out of the jungle!  so if you're LSAT score sucks, find another way to get to where you want!

love,
lather

Studying for the LSAT / Taking the LSAT more than 3 Times
« on: March 05, 2007, 10:04:23 PM »
Well, I guess I am an expert at something pertaining to the LSATs!  This thread is in response to the numerous PMs asking "How did you take it 5 times?"

To bypass the 3 times in 2 yrs policy, you need to have a law school write a letter to the LSAC requesting to give you permission to take the test again.

After my third time, I went to X law school, and told them that my LSAT score is below their range, and that I'd like to take the test again to improve my chances of getting accepted.  They said Okay, and wrote a letter to the LSAC.

After the fourth time, I wasn't expecting to take it again.  I happened to be in the neighborhood of a particular law school that I am interested in.  Trying to kill time, I went to the dean of admissions, and asked "how can I get accepted to your law school?"  We hit it off and chatted for an hour!!  I called her the next day and said, "I'LL DO ANYTHING I HAVE TO DO (morally, of course) TO GET INTO YOUR SCHOOL.  My LSAT score is low, and I'll take the LSAT again, even if 1 pt will increase my .0001% chance of getting in.  I'll take the test again!!!"  She said, "Okay."

I sent her an email, with a draft letter written to the LSAC.  She signed it and faxed it over.
