Studying for the LSAT / Ever seen anyone prep full time?
« on: August 24, 2007, 08:39:35 PM »
It seems that the majority of the people studying for the LSAT in LSD is at the same time either working full time, or at least part time, or in school. Is there anyone, like me, who is going full time LSAT-prepping? I've been studying for the Sept. LSAT since May. I took a year off after graduation just to study for the LSAT. I am aiming for 170 but haven't reached it yet.

Am I overdoing it...?
Not worth it?

Just a small grumbling out of half jealousy and half frustration of the fact that some people would get great scores prepping while in school or work.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Plans for Summer
« on: April 14, 2007, 11:33:03 PM »
Hello soon-to-be 1Ls,
This would probably be the last free summer you can enjoy.

What kind of things do you do, or plan to do from now until school starts?

Work?Travel?Party?

- Just a curious 07-08 applicant -

PS. Those who are already 1-3Ls are welcome to share what you did the summer before!

Oh Canada! / Lower LSAT scores in Canadian Law schools
« on: April 13, 2007, 03:16:04 PM »
This boggled my mind for a while...

UT law school, one of the toughest to get in to in Canada, says they have an average LSAT score of 166 for the admitted students, which is like similarly equivalent to US schools ranking in mid 20's.

Why do you think this is?  ???
1. Knowing that Canadian law schools don't put too  much weight on the LSAT as much as GPAs, do applicants just don't bother as much in getting a +170 score,
or,
2. the applicants in Canada just can't keep up with the high scores that the US counterparts achieve?

Any ideas?

LSAC and LSDAS / Masters GPA counted?
« on: April 13, 2007, 03:00:31 PM »
Does LSAC take your graduate school grades into GPA calculation?

I did my undergrad in Biochemistry, I am completing a Master of Biotech program soon. My program is a professional program, so we take biotech/business courses instead of research project. The thing is I did okay in undergrad (3.5 GPA), but I did worse in my graduate years (~3.3) I have 1 year of work experience.

I heard that a Master's degree does nothing to help in your admission, but does it hinder you if you did worse than in undergrad?

Thanks,
