Law School Admissions / Decision time estimate for late december apps?
« on: January 23, 2008, 11:23:31 AM »
Hi eFriends.  I sent in all my apps the day the dec lsat came out (dec 21 i believe). I've gone complete everywhere as of last week.  A lot of the talk of acceptances and decision dates has seemed to revolve around those who applied in Sept/Oct.   Does anyone have an estimate of how long it takes for those slightly longer in the cycle?  (Obviously some people applied in September and still haven't heard, I wouldn't expect to not hear for 4 months.... or should I?)

Many thanks

Studying for the LSAT / Second Thoughts on February LSAT
« on: December 27, 2007, 01:54:35 PM »
I was originally set on retaking in February in order to try and boost my chances of admission at my upper tier school choices.   However, in doing this, my applications (submitted a week ago) would be held and cycled to the back of the line, potentially meaning that it wouldn't even be complete until mid March or later when the scores will be obtained by the schools.   I know I'm not the only one in this situation;  I even argued for retaking in another thread.   But now I'm debating whether or not this is a good decision.  Of my two reach schools (my first choices of course), only one will consider the score.  That means I'm basically taking it for schools of preference #2,3, and 4.  (5,6, & 7 I'm leaving them open as I'm pretty confident of my chances).   I'm confident of improving my score, but worried about coming in so late in the cycle.

Does anybody else have any insights they could lend?  Much appreciated!

Law School Admissions / Work experience + time away from undergrad
« on: December 20, 2007, 08:57:16 PM »
How much does this minimize my GPA?  Its less than 3.2    I've been out for more than 4 years in a non-legal but professional career and done extremely well there.   From law school friends I keep hearing "That will help!  Your GPA isnt that important since you've been out so long" but ultimately isn't it mostly just a numbers game?  Won't I get indexed and potentially rejected before a resume is even reviewed?  My LSAT is lower than hoped but in my target school range, it's just my GPA from back when that's giving my heartburn.   I'm planning on retaking the LSAT to try and increase my initial index just so I'll get reviewed.  Any thoughts?

I've got one more app to get added to the cart.   The page became nonresponsive while I was adding the last one, now I can't get back on there.   This happened about an hour ago.  Anyone else having this problem?  Not sure if this is LSAC getting hammered for December score release, or if my user account is now botched.  Thanks!

Law School Admissions / LOR sent friday...

Sent regular USPS from the west coast.

Anyone want to play the "will it make it to LSAC in time to be processed before they go on vacation for weeks?!?" game?

Studying for the LSAT / Experimentals Irk me
« on: December 05, 2007, 09:54:01 AM »
And this is why:  The last two times I took the LSAT, I had a brutal RC experimental in the first two sections.   And I mean the passages in my mind were def harder than the real deal on this Dec.   I know that it's a part of the system, and it's not going to change, but man, what an awful feeling to start off that poorly in the test.  And that is why experimentals irk me. The End.

Studying for the LSAT / Prep Test 43 (June 2004) Relative Difficulty?
« on: November 22, 2007, 10:56:14 PM »
I know I know, theyre all suppossed to be equally as difficult.  However...   I just took this and easily topped my highest practice score.   I even aced games, and thats never happened before.  Anyone have any feelings on where this test sits in the LSAT spectrum?

Studying for the LSAT / I'm back and working towards December
« on: October 28, 2007, 07:06:45 PM »
My studying started again today.  After a month off, I feel really rusty!  I'm glad I had the break, but maybe a month was a tad too long. Anyway, here's to December!
