Law School Applications / Anxiety
« on: March 04, 2009, 05:17:07 PM »
3.5 GPA/ 162 LSAT.

I have applied to 6 schools: UC Davis, UC Hastings, UC Irvine, McGeorge, Santa Clara and Loyola (LA).  I have gotten into the last 3, but waiting for the three UC's.  The 3 schools I've gotten into require me to tell them my decision to go there or not by April 1, but I really want to wait to hear from the other schools. What can I do? And also, I turned in my applications in January - has anyone heard from UCD, Hastings or Irvine yet? Thanks.

Law School Applications / disciplinary probation
« on: October 27, 2008, 01:03:01 AM »
hello all,

i've been really paranoid about this and have posted about it before (i think). but during my 2nd year i was caught intoxicated on campus and got placed on disciplinary probation. this probation is on my CONFIDENTIAL file, but i know that i should still admit to it - right? do schools have random checks on random applicants? and even so, that information is closed to the public...(it says so on my letter, at least). and if i do admit to it and write an addendum, how much details do i include? any input would be greatly appreciated.

Law School Applications / in need of some advice
« on: October 26, 2008, 05:54:42 PM »
GPA - 3.531
LSAT (oct.) - 162 (i will be retaking in december)

i have also received disciplinary probation my 2nd year of college for drinking on campus, and am pretty sure i have to include an addendum about it. how badly is this looked upon? and how much information about the event should i include?

note - i am not looking to go to a t14 school or anything, my goal is uc hastings.

Studying for the LSAT / Kaplan Practice LSAT
« on: August 09, 2008, 12:17:12 PM »
There's a Kaplan practice LSAT being administered later this afternoon, and I signed up for it but is it really worth my time? I think I've read before (on this forum) that these practice tests aren't even real LSAT tests...true or false?

Studying for the LSAT / what do you think
« on: March 04, 2008, 11:38:15 PM »
would it be a bad idea if i took the june lsat, prepping by myself? i am taking a prep course over summer with blueprint (i am ignoring all this litigation nonsense, my friend got a 174 and took blueprint) and am also planning on taking it in october. but i feel like i'll be really freaked out just having that one shot with the test. most of the schools i'm planning on applying to take the highest score, but a few do average. what do you think?

Studying for the LSAT / what books to buy
« on: February 14, 2008, 02:31:48 PM »
hey, i'm going to be taking the blueprint course over the summer for the october test, but i wanted to buy some books so i can kinda get started on my own earlier and just get acquainted with the test. my mom bought me a cliffnotes book and somehow i feel like that it's not gonna cut it. are the LSAC issued books any good? and does it matter what version i buy (i.e. the latest edition or from a year ago...it's quite a cost difference)? i was thinking of not bothering with the powerscore bibles b/c it's probably way different strategies than blueprint would teach me...right? any input would be most appreciated, thank you!

Law School Applications / Question...
« on: November 28, 2007, 03:36:18 PM »
I'm a junior at UCLA. I did a very stupid thing the beginning of my sophomore year and was put on disciplinary probation for a year. I know most law school applications ask about this and I'm wondering if this would really hurt my chances of getting into law school. The probation was resolved and it's supposedly "confidential." I asked our dean of students and he said that I have to say "yes" to the question because then it would "not be telling the truth." Any wisdom on this subject? By the way, I have a decent GPA that went up after the incident (I definitely got my act together) and I'm hoping to get a decent LSAT score when I take it in October. Any ideas or comments are appreciated!
