Where should I go next fall? / 3.51/148 Should I even apply?

Target Schools: Howard, UDC, University of Baltimore, Catholic, George Mason, George Washington

Tentative Plan: Apply early to the first three above and retake the LSAT in December in hopes of improving my score to have a chance at the last three above.

Also, I had a 3.75 GPA but LSAC recalcuated my GPA to 3.51 based on some courses I took like 10 years ago. So I guess the 3.51 is what counts but do law schools see both GPAS?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Absent vs. Cancel Score
« on: September 23, 2009, 11:39:53 PM »
Absent = I scheduled something and didn't show up and didn't give notice. Not good. Relatively uncommon.

Cancel = I choked/was sick/something unusual happened and I exercised good judgment. Reasonably common.

But couldn't you be exercising good judgment by being absent? For instance, suppose you have a death in the family, swine flu, etc. Obviously, that's not the case for us but how do they distinguish who exercised good judgment and who didn't among the people that were absent?

From what I've heard it's better to be absent because you are never exposed to the test. I was planning on being absent but now I'm having second thoughts. ???

Damn I wish I listened to you people. Is it best to just be absent at this point?

Also, for those of you that took a course and still weren't ready how did you go about preparing for the next test?

I'm not quite sure what to do. I can retake the course for $475 or just study on my own between now and December. But a few people have suggested I look into private tutoring with Griffon Prep. Anybody familiar with them?

1. A December 155 looks better than a September 145 followed by a December 155.




So would it be best to just cancel my score if I feel I'm not in the 150-155 range? Also, I read somewhere that if your going to cancel it's best to just not show up. But I would prefer to show up on test day and make a judgment about my performance afterwards. Is there anything wrong with that or does it look worst when you cancel after being exposed to the test?

This is how I have it diagrammed:

                                                   >   O   
N/S   >   K   >   IL   >   G
                                                   >   P   H   S/N

Why is (A) the correct answer choice - "the fourth, the fifth."

I get why Gimena could be in the fourth class. But the fifth? I'm stumped.

Thanks in advance.

I'd wait until some more experienced folks chime in but here's my guess:

Couldn't you have the following two scenarios?

N/S > K > IL > G > S/N > PHO

N/S > K > IL > S/N > G > PHO
