Where should I go next fall? / Day to Day LSAT

Hey guys,

I need some help. I'm trying to improve my score before I write the Feb LSAT. I'm seem to be stuck at the same score. Anyways, if you guys or girls, don't mind can some of you list your day to day study plans. For instance, would you work on game for a week, and then arguments then next. I usually work on little bit of each during a day but it's not helping. How many timed drills would you do per day? Some of ya'll who score a 160 let me know.

Ez, Peeps

It's been a while since i've posted. I got an offer of admission for Franklin Pierce. Does anyone know anything about the school, faculty, speciality programs, and so forth? Any info would be great. I am aware that they have an IP program ranked 7th in the nation.

I received admission to Franklin Pierece Law school. Is anyone else on this board attending FP. I'm a bit weary of the school because it's a small private school that only teaches law. FP, has an excellent reputation for Patent and IP law. It ranked in the top 3 in the U.S. news 2002 report for IP schools. Furthermore for the past ten years it has ranked no less than the top 6 for IP law; infact, in 1996, 1997, 1998 it was ranked number one for IP law.

Also, is it important to attend a large University that teaches law, along with various other acadmeic disciplines (ie medicine, undergrad programs and so forth) compared to a school that teaches only law such as FP.  

Any help would be grateful because I've given up med school to pursue a career in patents. I hope I made the right choice. My numbers were 148, 3.63 Honours Science Major. My last two year at school were 3.96. Thanks.

Where should I go next fall? / Windsor

I just wanted to share some great news: I am accteped to the 1L law program at Windsor Law school. Infact, I'm elated I thought I had no chance of admission to a Canadian law school; however, I guess the hard work paid off. 1700 people applied and the accepted 150 students. I'm not sure if i'm gonna attend as I may defer admission for a year in order to write the MCAT; however, I'm glad that a CAD school accpeted me. No offence to any Americans I  ;Dalways wanted to stay close to home. I already defered my admission to Franklin Pierce and I am wait listes at Case Western and Ottawa but I think Windsor is the best fit for me....

To anyone who doubts themselves work hard and push your self. Nothing is easy in life and we must stuggle for what we want the trick is to enjoy life along the way.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / LSAT  Guidance
« on: December 09, 2002, 06:26:22 AM »
Hi y'all,

I was wondering if anyone was willing to offer some advice. Lsat year, I decided no to puruse medical school despite good academic credentials: my MCAT (80th percentile) and GPA (3.63).  I was getting tired of studying tradtional sciences and I did'nt want to spend another four years memorizing organ systems and learning obscure microbial names. To make a long story short I decided to pursue a career in law specifically patent law. Patent law would allow me to stay close to the filed of science without having to do all the clinical aspects of science. Furthermore, the compensation in this field is compartive to the medical profession so it seemed like the next logical step.

Anyhow, not to be cocky but I'm fairly intelligent. I graudated with on the Dean's Honours list in molecular biology but I can't seem to achieve a decent score on these paractice tests. I have taken three thus far, and the highest I have scored is 145. I've never been able to read or think fast and I think  that is the problem. I am concerned because I want to achieve a 160 but that seems well out of reach.

Has anyone improved drastically from their first few practice tests or should you be scoring reasonably high if you want to achieve your target score. For instance, in order to realistically achive a 160 should'nt my current score be in the 150's. I guess I'm discouraged because the MCAT seemed much more tougher, yet I can't even achive a respectable score on the LSAT.

Furthermore, does anyone know a good strategy for attacking assumption questions. Also how can I improve my Reading comprehension speed. Currenly I can attempt two passages with 100% accuracy. I usually run out of time before I can begin the third.

Can anyone provide some guidance......

Thanks Kindly.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / How Long To Prep For LSAT

« on: February 08, 2003, 07:26:49 AM »
Ez guys, I just wrote the Feb 8, LSAT.

I had the RC section for my experimental. I talk to several testakers and found out which one was the experimental.

The experimental RC section included a science passage about brain physiology and temporal relationship. There was alot of Jargon but the passage was easy. In the context of the passage "temporal relationship meant" timed intervals. I think discerning that was the key. There was a law passage on an organiztion called CITES. It was managable; however, the last few questions were tough. I can't recall the other two passages.

The Games section:

THe first game was easy. It involved assigining side effects to 4 drugs w,x,y,z. THe side effects were f,p,s,h. The game was easy because of the clue limiting that F&P can never go together. Infact, the only possible side effect that W had in common with X was H.

Game 2 was easy but tricky. The best setup was a two tiered diagram using rows assigned to named roller coasters and row two was to decide if the coaster was wooden or steel. This game also involved ordering. The key to this game was to figure out the location of H. After H exactly two steel roller coasters followed it. There were 7 roller coasters so it best to use a number diagram 1 through seven. 1 = a Steel roller coaster, you could deduce that 6= a steel roller coaster and 7 = a wooden roller coaster. 6 = a steel roller coaster because no two consecutive roller coasters could be wooden. P= 2.

Game 3 was easy if your good at conditional statements. THey were fairly straight forward. Mostly if then statements. It invlvoed assigning a doctor to a 7 story building. Can't recall the detials. I'll write more later my head is pounding.
