Studying for the LSAT / Frequent Preptests or Problem Type Focus
« on: October 27, 2009, 03:58:16 PM »

I am preparing for the Dec LSAT. I have taken a number of prep tests and have seen improvement. Timing is an issue for me and this is why I like taking the tests. I also like knowing where I stand. A friend of mine advised to STOP TAKING TESTS....and instead focus on a type of problem (this applies to LR mostly)...he says that getting comfortable with the type of problem will do more for your time than you may think. I don't know what to do....5 and a half weeks left...i still have about 10 points to go up for my goal. I feel like if I don't take a test for a couple weeks and then take one and realize that what I had been doing wasn't working then I would have wasted two weeks.

I started out at 148
I am currently at 157
I want to get to 167-170 range


Law School Admissions / Study Abroad/Internships
« on: September 06, 2009, 07:35:28 PM »

I just got back from a semester in Rome and am considering going to the east coast or possibly abroad again next summer for an internship. Im thinking of something in DC related to politics or law. How important is something like this for law school applications. Personal Statement? Resume? How important are these things. The reason that I ask is that it would be a financial burden to go abroad or even across the country for an internship.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.....I simply missed the "good" distinction mentioned in the stimulus. They weren't kidding about not overlooking details mentioned in the arguments. THANKS AGAIN....THIS HELPED A LOT.

I know that the right answer is D, but I do not know why? I put C.....I think that the reason that D is correct has something to do with Sufficient and Necessary Conditions. HELP!

Studying for the LSAT / Where to take the LSAT in LA
« on: May 18, 2009, 02:36:23 PM »

I am taking the Sept 26 LSAT this year. I need to know where the best place in Los Angeles to take the LSAT. I have heard that UCLA is bad because of small desks and that Southwestern is good because of large tables and more room. Are these things true? Where is LA should I take it?!!?

Hello....I have a dilemma...I am a Chemical Engineering major at UCLA with a 3.0 GPA...I am a 2nd year. I want to apply to law school, but I am concerned about my chances to certain schools with my major/numbers. I know that my GPA will be indexed according to other people applying to law school with my major/university and using my GPA and comparing it to the average GPA of chemical engineering majors at UCLA. I also know that I will need to do REALLY well on my LSAT in order to illustrate my eligibility for law school and to counterbalance my low GPA. I am too far into my major to change it, and I want to do patent law related to chemical engineering, so for me my major makes sense.

Other than what I have described, what else can I do in order to increase my chances of getting into a top 25-50 school. Thanks for your help. Is having this major detrimental?

I am a 3rd year and am planning to take a year off. This means that I will not be applying to law school until fall 2010. I have a professor that said she would write me a LOR. I want her to write the letter now because I am just finishing her class. How long do LOR stay active on LSAC? Or is there some other solution to my problem?
