Law School Applications / Forgot to attach my PS...
« on: October 15, 2007, 07:45:07 PM »
So, I forgot to attach my PS to the very first application I submitted.  What do I do now?  Can I email it to them or should I just wait until they let me know that my application is incomplete.  Pretty stupid move, but it was bound to happen at one of these schools that wants a DS, PS, resume, addendum, and explanation of every traffic ticket you've ever gotten.

Thanks in advance!

Law School Applications / Addendum or not?
« on: September 20, 2007, 02:56:18 AM »
I had to retroactively withdraw from all of my classes during one semester because I had to have emergency surgery during finals week, and one of my classes didn't allow any makeups of the final exam.  So, one of my semesters is all W's.  Should I write an addendum or is the note on my transcript enough?  It doesn't specify the exact circumstances of the semester withdrawal, but it does explain that the withdrawal was non-punitive.

Studying for the LSAT / Should I retake?
« on: August 28, 2007, 12:57:42 AM »
So, I took the June 2007 LSAT and scored a 160.  I was scoring 158-166 in the weeks leading up to the test.  I'm wondering whether I should retake or not.  I know the deadline is August 29th so I need to decide soon.  I have a ~3.30LSDASGPA and want to go to either UF, Tulane, or FSU.  I totally bombed the games section (missed 10 of 23).  I REALLY don't want to go through the hassle of sitting for another LSAT (I actually took the Dec 2006 LSAT and canceled because I was worried about the scale--ironic considering how the June 2007 scale panned out).  Any thoughts?  UF and Tulane still average I think...

Studying for the LSAT / Actual LSAT scores vs. preptests
« on: June 05, 2007, 04:03:00 PM »
For those of you who have actually taken the LSAT, was your score lower than your average preptest score?  I'm expecting mine to be marginally higher than my average, because the real thing is going to be in the afternoon (which is when I've been scoring my best practice scores).  Likewise, because of the type of test taker that I am, I feel like I will be able to "get up" for the real thing better than I have been able to for the practice tests that I have taken.

I don't understand why people feel that a 3-5 point drop during the real thing is likely.
