Law School Applications / Fee Waivers
« on: January 05, 2009, 06:27:27 PM »
I took the December 2008 LSAT with the intention of applying during the Fall 2009 cycle.  I've already been contacted by several schools, each granting me fee waivers for this cycle.  Right now, I couldn't even apply to these schools if I wanted to, as I haven't even sought out recommenders or started my personal statement.  Would it be safe to assume that these same schools would grant me fee waivers next fall, or should I contact these schools letting them know that I won't be applying to law school this cycle?  I'm interested in applying to a couple of these schools, and any money saved on application fees would be greatly appreciated.

Studying for the LSAT / Day before the LSAT...
« on: December 03, 2008, 02:52:41 PM »
I was just curious to see what my fellow December Test Takers plan on doing this Friday.

Me, I'm taking the day off from work.  I plan on sleeping in and taking one last PrepTest under simulated conditions.  Other than that, I might do some Christmas shopping since the majority of people will be at work.

Good luck to all of the December test takers!

Law School Applications / URM Status
« on: May 15, 2008, 10:27:23 PM »
I was wondering how the LSAC and LSDAS determine URM status.  Is it based simply off of ethnicity, or do other factors come into play?  Also, how the LSAC go about determining someone's URM status if only one of their parents would be considered an URM?  I've wondered about this because it seems as though scholastic institutions don't take into consideration those students whose parents are of different ethnicities.

Studying for the LSAT / Self-Studying Success Stories
« on: May 13, 2008, 03:56:02 PM »
I was hoping to hear from some people who went the self-studying route and decided not to hire a tutor or enroll in a prep course.  Do you regret the decision, or do you feel as though you were still able to perform to the best of your abilities on the LSAT?

LSAC and LSDAS / Double Major
« on: April 21, 2008, 01:53:25 PM »
Hello All,

I think I've already found the answer, but I'm hoping to get some clarification.  Here's my situation: I received both a B.A. in Communications and a B.A. in History during my five years of undergrad (both at the same institution).  I wrapped up all of the required courses for my Communications degree after my Fall 2006 quarter, and I finished the courses for my History degree after my Spring 2007 quarter.  My question is this: In the computation of my LSDAS GPA, will they include courses taken during my last two quarters (Winter 2007 and Spring 2007) while I was still working towards my B.A. in History even though I had already obtained one degree (a B.A. in Communications)?  Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Studying for the LSAT / June LSAT vs. October LSAT
« on: April 03, 2008, 12:12:08 PM »
I'm sure this question comes up quite frequently, but I'm debating whether I should take the June or October 2008 LSAT.  I'm currently registered to take the one in October, but I am thinking about re-scheduling and registering for the one in June.  The reason for this is that I've been reading a lot regarding the importance of submitting your application early.  I've been studying hard for about a month or so, but I still feel that I have a lot of room for improvement in the Logical Reasoning sections.

So, I guess what I'm wondering is whether or not taking the LSAT in October puts those test-takers at a disadvantage in terms of submitting "early" applications.  Any insight is greatly appreciated!

Studying for the LSAT / Reading Comprehension
« on: March 12, 2008, 12:32:48 PM »
I know that the Reading Comprehension section is probably the hardest section to improve you score in, but I was wondering if anybody could recommend any good books or strategies that have helped them improve their score.  I just took my first dianostic test and, predictably, I bombed the Reading Comprehension section.  I'm looking to improve as much as I can, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Has anyone ever been to one of these?  I just signed up for one that's being held on 03/22/08, and I just wanted to hear some experiences.  Thanks!
