Affirmative Action / Do Blacks/ people of color really need the boost?
« on: February 17, 2009, 08:58:34 PM »
I'm Black, and accept for the fact that I was probably the only black person in about 95 per cent of my classes, I do not think I have been particularly disadvantage. I went to a great public university. I have always been one of the top people in my classes, even higher than many whites. And with regards to my LSAT (which I'm still studying for) I'm scoring just as good or better that my white/ non-minority friends.

Don't get me wrong, if i get a 166 and can still get into NYU,I will be there...but I can;t help but feel a little uneasy.

I guess my question is, why do blacks or African Americans or People of Color get the extra boots?

Thanks peeps!

Studying for the LSAT / Feb. LSAT
« on: February 08, 2009, 09:20:49 PM »
I just took the Feb LSAT, a day ago. Am I  the only one who felt  it was easy...even if my nerves got the better of me and I have to most likely retake.

Tell me if I'm wrong but are the Feb. and June test the easiest? I always find the Oct. and Dec test the most difficult

Law School Applications / Cancelling Scores??? Colleges
« on: February 08, 2009, 09:12:29 PM »
This is most likely an oldies questions,  but do colleges know if you have canceled your test score? Because I have a canceled score and two actually scores... one a 155 and the other a 166

Law School Applications / Taking the Test in Dec. WHATS WRONG W/THIS?
« on: September 13, 2008, 05:26:54 PM »
I singed up for the Oct. test but I just don't feel ready. I have a great GPA and I don't want to waste it on a 150something all for the purpose of turning-in the app on time. What do you all think about this, do the negatives outweigh the positives?

I'm in a venting mood and here it goes:

I'm taking a testmasters course, and I have the LR bible, but after a month and a half of studying my freking LR score keeps going down.

I'm get about 97% of the answers correct on LG and RC, BUT...that darn LR is trying to ruining me.

Are there any suggestions about the LR that anyone can offer to me. Also, my biggest problem is in the "must be true" sections.

Thanks my fellow LSAT-studiers

Studying for the LSAT / I don't get it, why is this happening...
« on: July 13, 2008, 10:37:11 PM »
So the strangest thing is happening...after studying for like a month, I'm starting to get only about 3-2 questions wrong on ever section, EXPECT the freaking LR section(I miss like 8-9). I started out doing horrible on the games, but even that problem, SEEMS fixed, at least for now. But no matter what I do, the LR keeps tripping me up, I thought this was my strength, but as time goes on, this appears to be my weakness.

Are there any suggestions about how to better study the LR sections, because I'm getting kinda scared, if this problem does not get fixed by OCT? HELP!!

Studying for the LSAT / What's up with the timing when Practicing
« on: July 07, 2008, 12:53:55 AM »
Ok so I have been taking the preptest but they have all been un-timed. Actually, I took i timed once but usually by the time I got to question 16, I ran out of time.

I don't know if I should keep practicing un-timed for another 3wks and try to work on comprehension first then work on timing.

I have been studying now for like 3wks, I understand the test better but I don't think my timing has improved. I'm taking the test in Oct.,so I still have time (i think) and I'm taking the testmasters course, so I have that. But nonetheless, I'm getting a bit worried.

Does anyone(or two) have any suggestions??? Thanks peeps!

Law School Applications / WHATexactly the FU** is a GOOD SOFT FACTOR
« on: July 05, 2008, 11:04:05 PM »
I hear people say, I have a good soft factor...isn't any EC thing one does outside of academics good?

Am I wrong?

Studying for the LSAT / 2 questions please: Time and Score/changes
« on: June 30, 2008, 11:01:43 PM »
So I am studying for the Oct. LSAT and I'm taking the testmaster course(starts on July 28)

My two questions after self-studying is this:

Q1:I am slow as hell...how do I speed up and not run out of time, because I usually get most questions correct but by the time I'm at question 16/17 my 35mins is up...I'm getting discouraged and actually stuffed my face out of depression. SO not only I;m I slow, Im now 10 pounds heavier

Q2: How long does it take to start seeing improvements/results in ones score I'm not seeing anything great at all right now, even though I feel like I understand this stuff a lot more than I did when I took my first practice test in Dec (kaplan)

Side note: I have only been studying(semi hard) for a week, but still I want results NOW!!

Law School Applications / WHERE SHOULD I APPLY GPA:3.6, LSAT:???
« on: June 21, 2008, 02:10:26 PM »
Hello All,

So I'm taking the October LSAT, but I want to start on the applications as early as possible, like now!!!

I have a 3.6, which is okay, but I'm hoping/ working on getting a 170 (or better) on the LSAT, but since I have not taken it yet, I don't even know what schools to set my eyes on yet. I'm in kind of a limbo..does anyone have any suggestion of what to do?

Thanks
