I don't know about you all, but this process is painful.  Can the first year possibly be any worse than this? 

Law School Admissions / Waitlisted at what?
« on: April 04, 2007, 02:05:44 PM »

So I retook the LSAT in Feb. and am still waiting on a number of schools.  I am in to BU, but my first choice is Fordham (a lot of reasons, including I currently work in NYC and live near the school and would rather not move).  What should my next step be?  My Feb. LSAT was a 165, so in their range and my GPA from a top 15 UG is a 3.62 and a 3.91 for my degree in Poli. Sci. 

I sent a letter of continued interest that they received on Monday.  I don't know if they received it before they made the decision or not...  I only know I am on the waitlist because of the status checker.  I have not heard anything from them (not surprisingly).

Basically, just curious if anyone has any good ideas or if anyone knows what the odds of getting in are off the waitlist. 



Law School Admissions / Withdrawing

Hey everybody,

This might have been discussed before, but what is the proper way to withdraw from a school?  Is email considered rude?  Is a phone call the way to go?


I know I could go to all of the sites individually, but...

Thanks a lot.

Hey everybody,

So...I asked schools to put a hold on my apps, so that I could submit my Feb. LSAT score. 

Now, I check this board periodically and see everyone discussing acceptances and dings, and waitlists Oh my! 

First, are there other people in the same purgatorial state? 

Second, how long should I plan on waiting?  As in, does it make sense for me to check my email every ten minutes or not?


Law School Admissions / Score Report Question

Hey there,

Does anyone know how long it takes a feb. score report to get to the schools?  When do they know my score? 

Thanks everybody.

Studying for the LSAT / This is Killing Me
« on: March 01, 2007, 10:24:01 AM »
So...the anticipation is killing me. 

I have become jittery and aggressive.  Not more than 10 minutes ago, I assaulted a clown for smiling at me. 

I blame this guy:

"A Frenchman, the psychologist Alfred Binet, published the first standardized test of human intelligence in 1905."

Please, discuss.

Studying for the LSAT / The Lights
« on: February 26, 2007, 12:09:05 PM »
My story begins in downtown manhattan at the location of my Dec. 06 test.  I was put in a room with 20 or so other students.  We sat at small desks.  The desks were so small that I clipped my LSAC-approved timer onto my jeans.  Needless to say, I wouldn't recommend doing that as my timer hit the ground and shattered at some point during the 3rd section...

The lowlight of my test taking experience, though, revovled around the lights.  At my test center, the lights were motion sensitive.  Apparently, test taking does not require a lot of motion, for every 15 minutes or so, the lights would go out, the room becoming pitch black.  Everyone in the room would shake their arms rapidly and the lights would jump on a few moments later.  The proctor never found a way to remedy this and so, for the entirety of the test the lights would go out at various times.  I am not sure what is worse though.  The fact that the lights went out or the constant worrying that they were just about to. 

My performance could have been better, and while I am not blaming the conditions, I would like to think that my retaking of the test in Feb. went somewhat better.

The moral of the story?  try to sway back and forth while taking the test...just in case...
