If you recieve accomodated testing on the LSAT, should you write an addendum or address it in you PS. Do adcomms really look down on it?

Studying for the LSAT / what if i can't do well
« on: December 26, 2004, 04:20:24 PM »
What if no matter what, you couldn't get a decent score on the LSATs?

This is my big fear. Despite hours of studying, several prep courses, and tons of practice, I have this sinking feeling that I am doomed not to do well. My first test proved this point. I know in general that the LSAT is suppose to be a good indicator of how well you succeed in law school, but I truly believe I am an exception to the rule. My SAT score was laughable as well, though I almost finished with my undergrad, finishing in the top 3% of my class, been selected as student of the month, and mangaged to get almost all As while be plagued with several severe mental illnesses (which I think are best not best mentioned to schools). I just wish there was someway to bypass the LSATs or be let in on some type of special consideration to prove that I can do well.

Law School Admissions / Under represented states
« on: October 21, 2004, 08:23:26 PM »
I can't remember where I heard this but is it true that law schools try to take students from every state. And if so, does that mean that people from little states like Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Dakotas, etc have an advantage, almost like an URM?

Law School Admissions / Academic Summary Report

How long after your transcipt has been processed does it take for Academic Summary Report to show up?

Has anyone used any of the "starting from scratch" or questionnaires services for developing a personal statement? I am kind of stuck on what to write or moreso for to structure it. If so was it a good or bad experience? I don't want something that sounds like it comes out of an essay bank.

My professor sent me a copy of my LOR, I didn't ask him to but he did anyway. In the very first sentence he mispelled my last name, put an R instead of L. I don't know how noticable it is, except to me, but I do have  an uncommon last name. He knows me really well and it was just a simple typo. But do you think it might hurt me or look bad, or will law schools not notice.

Law School Admissions / Admission Index Information Sheet
« on: October 08, 2004, 12:21:22 PM »
On LSAC, they have this admissions index, which takes your lsat score and gpa and multiplies them by some factor and adds a constant. Does anyone know how law schools read this index number? Or why my school isn't listed?

Choosing the Right Law School / NU interview

Anyone interview at Nortwestern? I have mine coming up and was curios if anyone knew what kind of questions they asked. Also do I need to bring my resume or anything?

Studying for the LSAT / annoying proctors
« on: October 05, 2004, 02:18:44 PM »
My proctors were so annoying. They spent the first half of the test flipping through pages and shuffling around in the fron of the class. Did anyone else have this problem? It made it impossible to concentrate, and my mind just went blank. I thought they were suppose to sit there quietly and not do anything, that is what they do at the GMAT.

Studying for the LSAT / for those that cancelled
« on: October 05, 2004, 02:11:16 PM »
For those of you who are canceling, doesn't it bug you not to ever know how you did? I think it would drive me insane. Like I would almost rather know that I got a 177 and made the stupid mistake of canceling rather than never knowing at all.
