Law School Admissions / Deferring and retaining scholarship $
« on: June 12, 2007, 09:10:05 PM »
If a school offers you significant scholarship money- let's say a half to full tuition scholarship- will they generally allow you to defer admission for one year and retain that scholarship offer, or do things have to be renegotiated? Thanks.

Law School Admissions / Pre-law advisor leaving...
« on: February 09, 2007, 11:07:13 AM »
I went to see the pre-law advisor at my school a few times before (once a year). Apparently now he's leaving...he'll stay on til the end of the semester and then they will split his duties among several deans.

I'll be working on apps this summer and applying in the fall... is this bad news for me or is it not going to matter much?

Studying for the LSAT / Another LSAT study plan Q...
« on: May 11, 2006, 08:18:24 PM »
I will be away for the summer, coming back in the middle of August. I am planning on studying on my own over the summer with practice test and powerscore books. For a couple of reasons, one being money, the other being I have an EC I can't miss on Mondays and Thursdays, I am not planning on taking a course. Am I going to regret this? I know this is a ridiculous question...but I had to ask.

Law School Admissions / Prestige v. price- thoughts?
« on: May 11, 2006, 07:36:16 PM »
I would love to hear anyone's thoughts on this topic- whether law school is only 'worth it' if you go to a top or near-top school, or whether if you can get a free ride (almost) anywhere, take it, or whether it really depends on your career goals. I am going to be facing this question when I apply to LS and I would like to know what other people have decided or thought about.

Law School Admissions / Really need advice
« on: February 16, 2006, 06:45:12 AM »
I decided recently that instead of going straight to LS after senior year, I am going to take a year or two off. I recently signed up for the June LSAT, figuring I would get it over with. I took a practice test about two weeks ago and I want to raise my score about 10 points. I'm realizing now, however, just how hard it is going to be for me to squeeze in practice time, with classses, a job, community service, and other stuff I'm involved in. I signed up so early because I will be in DC this summer and wanted a good test center, but right now I'm thinking I should hold off until at least October, if not after graduation. I think I would have much more time to study over the summer. I think I thought that taking the LSAT in my junior year would be evidence that I wanted to go to LS even though I took time off.... is this even a big deal at all? Do you guys think I should hold off? Oh, I would like to avoid taking a course, especially if I take it in June. Thanks!

Also, I get the impression that if I didn't want to take the test in June, I could only get a partial refund from LSAC. Am I right?

Studying for the LSAT / High Diagnostic-->Bomb real test?

Does this ever happen? You get a fairly high score on a diagnostic test, or even repeated practice tests, and then bomb the real thing?

Law School Admissions / When to sign up for test?
« on: January 20, 2006, 07:13:32 AM »
When should I register for the June test? I am in the processs of applying to internships in DC and I'm not sure when I will be certain of a position, although I'm fairly confident that I'll get something. Should I go ahead and sign up for a test center in DC now? I'm not sure know how early I have to sign up to be assured of a spot in my 1st choice test center. Thanks.
