Studying for the LSAT / is using a private tutor worth it??
« on: October 27, 2008, 01:31:25 PM »
i'm sure this question has been asked several times, but i keep getting that weird version of the home page with no search option.

i'm debating using a private tutor, maybe 1hr/wk from now to december.  i've posted this before, but i took the lsat in oct 07 and made a 163.  i didn't study very much that time around, so i invested as much time, money & energy as a full-time working person can invest in doing better on the oct 08 test.  took 30+ prep tests, a kaplan class (before i learned how bad of an idea that would be), lr bible, lg bible, etc.  you name it, i've done it.  anyway, in oct 08, i felt great after the test, but to my surprise only scored a 164 on the test.  this was after months of prepping at around a 172 level.  i'm definitely retaking in december and definitely applying this cycle.

i'm really not sure what else i can do to make sure i do better in dec, so i was thinking of going the private tutor route.  it's ridiculously expensive, but if it makes a difference, obviously it's a good investment.  because i really can't afford to go so much, i'd probably go for one hour slots one time/week. 

has anyone used a private tutor and had really great results???  i would really appreciate any feedback y'all have.  i'm going to meet one guy tonight for a trial run... i am so dedicated to get a better score, 170+!!!!!

Studying for the LSAT / Three times???
« on: October 25, 2008, 09:42:06 AM »
How does it look to take the LSAT 3 times, assuming there is any sort of improvement from 1 score to the next?  I've already taken twice but KNOW I can do better than my current score, which is out of range for the schools I want (164).

Law School Applications / early decision v. regular?
« on: October 22, 2008, 03:18:34 PM »
hey y'all,

i can't find a recent topic like this, so i'd be curious to hear people's thoughts.  i'm so lost as to whether apply to early decision or regular decision!

is applying to nonbinding early decision (NOT binding, i'm not doing that either way) necessarily a bad idea?  everything i've found seems to say that it's a disadvantage financially to do this, since it inhibits your ability to negotiate extra $$ from the school later.  does this apply even if it is nonbinding?

are there more benefits to applying ed if you fall in a certain lsat/gpa range (e.g., the school's 75th or 25th percentiles)?

is the best idea to apply under the regular decision process, but just apply early in the cycle (nowish)???

thanks for any help!!

Law School Applications / Resume abbreviations question
« on: October 15, 2008, 10:37:29 AM »
What do y'all think about periods in abbreviations for resumes?  I know different stylebooks have different recommendations, in general.

Currently, I consistently use all caps and no periods (e.g., BA, GPA, etc.) throughout.  My understanding is that whichever way you do it (e.g., B.A. v. BA, G.P.A. v. GPA) is ok, as long as you are consistent throughout your resume.

What do y'all think?  Is this right?

Personal Statement / to the experts: how important is it...
« on: October 14, 2008, 08:18:51 PM »
how important is it to weave the topic of "why i want to be a lawyer" or "why am i fit to be a lawyer" throughout the ps? 

based on the ivey book & other sources, to me i thought it was not necessary or a disadvantage if you didn't explicitly use this as a big part of your ps, unless you are writing a "statement of purpose."

Personal Statement / Another PS- Critique or Trade Please??
« on: October 13, 2008, 08:40:13 AM »
Let me know if you'd like to trade or critique my ps.  I appreciate all the help I can get!

Edit:  ok so maybe nobody would "like" to trade or critique personal statements.  I should have said if you are "willing" to look over my ps, I would reeeaaallly appreciate it!!!

Studying for the LSAT / do think this plan will help me?
« on: September 24, 2008, 10:20:40 AM »
morning all- i posted something about 2wks ago saying that i was having big inconsistencies in my scores (10 pt drop!), mostly due to lr.  i have since risen back up to the 171/2 level, but last night got 163, entirely bc of lr (i got -1 in lg and -2 in rc).  that is a big dip, esp. for one area.  granted i was tired, no caffeine, pt was at like 10pm after work, etc.  but still, i've taken other tests in that condition & scored higher.  the mistakes were stupid & mostly on easy questions.  i think it is partly burnout, but i also don't want to just assume that and not try to improve this problem. 

in the other posting, folks said to take pt's and really be sure i know why every answer is right/wrong.  i do that already.  so, my new idea is to redo the lr bible, some lr mastery questions, and possibly some lr sections alone.  along with some pt's too, of course--i think i only have 6 or 7 left to do before next sat.  the question types i miss are not restricted to 1 section... there are a few i never get wrong (e.g., main point), but the others vary.  i would skip the ones i never get wrong and do all the other chapters. 

so, what do y'all think?  is this a good use of time?  i stupidly have been staying off the caffeine too (no reason really), but as of last night that policy is nixed!!!
