Incoming 1Ls / Laptop Sleeves v. Bags
« on: July 23, 2006, 01:28:46 AM »
just got my new laptop today, so i obviously now need a sleeve/bag to protect it. im leaning towards a tumi sleeve, so i can consolidate my books and comp into one backpack. but would that take one huge backpack? also, im wondering if i will end up carrying my laptop in the sleeve out of the pack because my backpack is too jammed with books. so now im thinking id be better off having a messanger type comp bag and a medium sized backpack for books/supplies.

what is everyone's take on this?

Went here for undergrad and have been accepted for the fall, 90% sure this is where I will end up come August. Pretty good school, great location and first class in a brand spanking new law school! Anyone else planning on going here?

Will the proctors allow you to wear earplugs while taking the test?

Studying for the LSAT / Tough Decision by Tomorrow
« on: September 29, 2005, 08:10:32 PM »
I am all signed up for Saturday, but having second thoughts. I just finished Testmasters and here are my practice test scores: 142,144,154,157,151,154. I would be happy with a 155+ on Saturday and that may not happen based on these scores. I guess my question is how much can one expect to improve on this test. Testmasters tells me if I take the course again, get private tutoring, and work even longer and harder I can get better and better, but I don't know what to think. I have kind of decided I am not the best at this test and will just have to be happy with a low 150's score, maybe better, but who knows. I guess my main question is, based on what you know here, do you think I could keep improving if I work more and more?

Studying for the LSAT / Time b/w Sections
« on: September 28, 2005, 06:45:53 PM »
I know there is a 10-15 min break between the 3rd and 4th sections, but is there any time between the others or does the proctor literally say, stop section 1, begin section 2?

Studying for the LSAT / This Saturday Test Hard
« on: September 28, 2005, 12:07:08 AM »
Considering the June 05 test was an easy test and people did much better than the writers would have liked them to do, is that any indication that the Oct. test is going to be a killer?

Law School Admissions / Applying W/ Dec. Test
« on: August 23, 2005, 09:38:49 AM »
Are you putting yourself at a big disadvantage if you take the Dec. test? Most schools I have talked to say get your apps in sometime in Nov. I am thinking of postponing the test until Dec so I have a better chance at reaching my goal score, but I don't won't to completely disadvantage myself by turning my app in late. What are others thoughts on this?

Studying for the LSAT / Cheating?
« on: August 20, 2005, 04:40:09 PM »
My friend who took the test in June and happened to get a very good score knew that a person next to her was basically copying directly from her, she said she tried not to worry about it but felt it effected her because it upset her to know she was giving someone else who wouldn't get a good score, normally, a good score. Do you think this is something that happens frequently?

I have a rather unusual story that entails overcoming great diversity. To make it short I was in an accident and suffered a spinal cord injury and was told I would never walk again, but overcame that and walk now. Since this shows overcoming adversity I am using it in my personal statement. My lsat score is very mediocre,  right around a 150, give or take a few points. How much weight will a personal statement like this carry for me when applying?

Studying for the LSAT / Private Tutoring
« on: July 20, 2005, 03:47:16 PM »
I am currently in a TM course and I had a pretty poor first diagnostic, 142, but know I can improve. It seems to me that just continuous studying and getting familiar with the material will pay off for me because my biggest problem is definitely endurance. Do you think private tutoring is a big benefit on top of a course or just my continious time and dedication to the lsat good enough?
