Choosing the Right Law School / In at Brooklyn!
« on: March 16, 2005, 03:36:32 PM »
I'm in at Brooklyn! Right after visiting the campus too.

Does anybody know how they notify about scholarship money? Would it have been in the email they sent me or could it be in the formal packet that comes later? Any input would be much appreciated. I saw a number of people on LSN with similar numbers who have received awards, so I'm curious.

Choosing the Right Law School / Apps at the deadline--any thoughts?
« on: February 14, 2005, 04:22:35 PM »
I'd like to solicit some opinion on this, if I could. I've already applied to 8 schools, all in my sig below. But I just retook the LSAT on Saturday and I'm guesstimating my new score will be between 166 - 170, depending on how many guesses I end up getting right and the scale's difficulty.

In any case, I thought I might apply to some of the school's that will either look at my higher score only, or would be good with the average from 158. Thinking about ripping out apps to Northwestern, BU, BC, maybe Georgetown though I know that's especially a long shot. This being so close to the deadline, I know I'm obviously at a disadvantage--but do you think the slim chance it might pay off is viable enough that I should just do it?

Studying for the LSAT / Interesting test prep (or lack thereof) results
« on: February 02, 2005, 07:34:40 PM »
I am retaking the LSAT in Feb. In October I got a 158 which was lower than I expected, by a considerable margin. My average scores during practice ranged from 165-168. I think that my intense amount of prep before the October exam may have damaged my actual performance, and I know others here have witnessed similar results. I took a bunch of practice tests in a fairly short amount of time.

Before the October test, my scores were as follows (from first time taking it, blindly, all the way up to the actual test): 162, 159, 155, 161, 164, 168, 167, 168, 165, 168....158.

For the Feb test, I decided forget it. I haven't practiced at all, haven't even really thought about the test until tonight when I decided, ok, I should at least get back in the saddle a little bit before exam time.

Took the practice test tonight and scored 174. Way higher than ever before. Whether this can be sustained, I'll have to wait and see. But I felt way more confident tearing through that test tonight now that I'm not so driven on practicing constantly.

Choosing the Right Law School / Brooklyn Law's evil trick

I opened the mailbox tonight to see a big fat envelope from Brooklyn Law. I was super excited because it's among my top choices. I open it up and grab the cover letter which reads, "We are pleased..." (really getting pumped now) " offer you, an applicant to our school, a copy of Brooklyn Law's magazine, Law Notes."

What a letdown.   :-\
