Law School Applications / Application help please...
« on: December 05, 2004, 08:20:34 PM »
I could use some help in determining how i should go about this entire application process.  Real quick with the background info, I took the LSAT Saturday and am pretty sure I'll score in the low 160's as I have been in practice tests.  Within the next month or so, I plan on leaving NY for a bit and head down to Charleston to change things up and actually live a bit before law schol shuts me down next September.  My question is how I should go about all this?  Can I apply to law schools without my score?  Due to situtaions beyond my control, I'm probably moving shortly after Xmas while the LSAT results won't be in until Jan 4.  I won't have comp access where I'll be living so i would much rather have everything sent out electronically before I move.  Can I do this?  Will the law schools just start reviewing my apps when the LSAT scores come in or do I have to wait until the results are released before I submit my apps?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance..

Law School Applications / When should I expect decisions?
« on: November 25, 2004, 07:47:51 PM »
Can anyone give me a ballpark time frame as to when i can expect a response from law schools?  I'm taking the Dec. LSAT and I would assume, if I do as well on the real thing as I'm doing in practice, that I'll score within the low to mid 160's.  I have a 3.2 UG GPA with excellent LOR's and PS (as does everyone else) and plan on applying to UPitt, Case Western, UDenver, Tulane, Brooklyn, Cardozo, St. Johns and a few others.  LSAC has processed everything except my PS and I have yet to submit any actual apps, which I plan on doing electronically through LSAC.  I'm guessing I should have all my apps sent out and ready to go so that the LSAT score is the only thing needed to make my file complete.  Any idea of when i may here back from schools?  I know it's a busy time and I've gotten a late start on the whole admissions process.  Thnaks in advance...

I just found out my transcript got processed today by LSAC.  My computer is a little messed up so I couldn't access the page that describes what everything means.  Could someone tell me the diff. between my degree sumary GPA (3.51) and my cumulative GPA (3.17)?  I'm expecting the worst....

Studying for the LSAT / Help with "study schedule"
« on: October 05, 2004, 05:23:28 PM »
So I took the Kaplan course and still ended up cancelling my score on Saturday's LSAT.  On the word of some folks in here, I just bought the powerscore LRB, LGB, Ult. setup and the "Next 10 LSAT" book.  Any suggestions as to how I should handle the next 2 months?  Is there enough material in the Bibles to last for 2 months or should i hold off on them until i get closer to test day?  Thanks...

Studying for the LSAT / Suggestions desperately needed for Dec LSAT...
« on: October 02, 2004, 05:15:48 PM »
I took the LSAT today and to be real simple, I plan on cancelling my score.  I took the Kaplan class in preparation but nerves and I'm guessing unpreparedness totally killed me today.  During practice exams over the last few weeks, I had been scoring in the mid to high 150's, eventually topping out at a 161 last Thursday.  Today i can guarantee that I didn't break 150, if I let my score count.  I guess the rational option would be to take the December LSAT but I almost feel like it's pointless considering I stdied like I've never studied before and still drew a blannk on test day.  What can I do to prepare this time?  I refuse to take the Kaplan class again bc I didn't find it all that helpful now that I look back.  And I've basically ran through all the practice LSATs in the "10 more, 10 actuall..." books.  What should I do here?

Where should I go next fall? / University of Denver?
« on: September 25, 2004, 11:21:13 PM »
This is only one scenario I am kicking around during the application process but I was wondering what your thoughts were on UD?  I have lived in NYC or Long Island my entire life and have no real desire to stay around here for law school.  Is it naive to base my choice of school on my deisre to get out? I graduted with a 3.58 and will probably score in the high 150's, maybe 160 or so if all goes well next week..  The University of Denver comes to mind only because I absolutely love the area and could see myself really enjoying my law school experience out there. Would I be guaranteeing future employment only in that region if I choose UD?  Am I being ridiculous?  Can anyone sugesst any other schools that would suit my needs?  I have no real idea of where I plan on practicing following graduation but I certainly don't want to limit myself either.   Thanks in advance...
