Recommendations / My LORs
« on: April 17, 2006, 12:43:16 PM »
1. Owner of the company that I worked for is an SMU Law graduate. I have known her for 12 years.

2. School of Management career advisor who thinks highly of me.

Thoughts?

Big 4 Accounting/CPA vs Law School

Any thoughts? Pretty sure I am in with my favorite of the big 4.

I might be delaying my entrance into law school. It turns out that I have made the final four to one of the Big 4 accounting firms! That would be so fantastic!!!

Law School Applications / Texas Defer Conclusions
« on: March 20, 2006, 01:34:32 PM »
I have heard from a few people that they have received the conclusions on their deferments from Texas. (Sadly all dings) Just posting in the event that some are curious.

*Edit: When I mentioned all dings, I was only stating that the few I had spoken to had received dings.

Law School Applications / Gay
« on: March 16, 2006, 04:16:33 PM »
Just curious, does Gay get you as a minority? Do they check? If I wrote a PS statement as a struggling homosexual, would that help my application where any weak spots may be? Then when they see you on campus you can just say, "oh, well, I was confused at the time""

Studying for the LSAT / The Beginning
« on: March 09, 2006, 01:39:22 PM »
I have received my 10 Actual and 10 More Actual LSAT Prep Tests. My Powerscore Bibles are on the way, and should be arriving tomorrow. I believe I am going to give Vera's approach a try. I am 6 months out, and I am anxious to begin my work for the LSAT. I will be applying with around a 3.4-3-5 LSDAS from my studies in Accounting at UT - Dallas.

SMU or Bust!

Good Luck to All!

Studying for the LSAT / Powerscore Full Course - Text Only
« on: March 04, 2006, 02:31:24 AM »
Good Morning!

I am looking to prepare for the LSAT over the summer. I have searched through the topics, and can not find the answer to the question I have. I believe that Powerscore would be a fantastic route to go, however, there are different avenues to take.

Full Class Course: $1200
Full Class Text Only: $600
Just the bibles: $80

I am leaning toward the Full Class Text only option, but was looking to see if anyone has chosen that as well. Was it worth it? Do I only need the bibles and not the supplemental text and homework assignments? I work well on my own, so I do not think that I need a in class course.

Thank you in advance!

Studying for the LSAT / Diagnostic
« on: November 05, 2005, 10:07:20 AM »
I bought a Kaplan disc a few months ago. However, I will not be using it to study. There is a diagnostic test on the disc. I believe it is only 45 minutes to an hour long. Does the score produced from this diagnostic test a good representative to what your starting diagnostic score is? I bought two LSAT Test books. Would it be better to just sit down and take an actual test? I do not plan on begging to study for a few more months, but I am curious as to where I stand.

Law School Applications / Going All Out
« on: October 26, 2005, 08:05:11 PM »
I have decided to really take the plunge.

I am going to make a final stand on my GPA. I'll 4.0 this semester out, and I am going to take 18 hours next semester and 4.0 that out as well.

In order to do this, I am going to be giving my notice at a job I have had since high school. I have  been with the company for 3 and a half years, and I will be living off of my savings account. (I will probably pick up a part time job somewhere).

Also, during the spring semester, I will do the Kaplan prep(computer program), and in the summer I will take the PowerScore course.

It makes me a little nervous. I have been working full time and I do not know anything different.

Just going to keep my head down, finish as strong as I can, and wait for the envelope that says, "Accepted".

Where should I go next fall? / Strength
« on: October 23, 2005, 07:19:28 PM »
I will probably end up with a 3.25 or higher LSDAS

I am not sure of what type of LSAT score I will recieve. I have not started to prep for it.

I have been working full time as a Loan Officer all through college, and produced impressive numbers.

My GPA does not discount me from getting into SMU, correct? I understand that law schools look at the entire picture, but I suppose this is just one of those posts that is looking for a , "No, if you do well on the LSAT, your GPA and work experience will be fine."

What type of LSAT am I looking at to become a strong applicant for SMU?
