Law School Applications / Who started in community college?
« on: January 07, 2008, 03:16:18 AM »
I'm feeling a bit disheartened after learning that my gpa will be adjusted by some schmucks :P to better represent me.

I started out in high school not giving a care in the world about school. I probably pulled a 2.0 if I'm lucky (have worked hard to forget those years lol).  School didn't matter to me because I was going to play baseball in college and was already all set up. Well as the story normally goes, I got hurt and baseball went down the drain. There I was with no options left but the local community college. At the time I didn't think anything of it because it was cheap and gave me time to figure out what I wanted to do.  :D Well after my first semester performance of 1.9 and a similar second semester, I realized that I was going to be a garbage man if I didn't get my poo together.

The next year I was at the same place but worked hard to bring my grades up to 2.8. I then decided that I needed to get out of the poo hole school (actually top CC in the country ahahahhaha) to a more respectable 4 year. I ended up at an expensive private school and have gotten all A's since I've been here. I'll end up with probably a 3.4 when it's all said and done.

I realize a 3.4 is bottom shelf around here, but I'm hoping a great lsat will get me somewhere.

Now, I'm curious how much my gpa will be adjusted considering my time at a community college. Most of those credits are included in what will be my graduating gpa so I'm kind of clueless. By the time I'm done I'll have 3 full years at a good school with 2 at a "good" :D community college. I'm hoping the extreme grade trend will make up for my early time in CC.

What do you guys think? Anyone else a dirty CC scumbag like me?  :P

Studying for the LSAT / What should I do before LSAT specific studying?

I've got slightly under 2 years until application time. This means that I have about a year and a half until test time.  I've read all over that it's not good to start studying more than three or four months ahead of time for fear of running out of materials to actually study.

With that in mind, what can and should I be doing to prepare myself in the mean time? Obviously reading and focusing on comprehension are important, but other insight and advice is appreciated.

Best,
Tyler
