Choosing the Right Law School / Re: masters before law?
« on: January 11, 2010, 02:30:56 PM »
I treated mine like just another soft. I know it didn't make a bit of difference in acceptances, and I have no idea if it even made a difference when it came to scholarship offers from places that accepted me (I'm betting it didn't even register). But for me, it was a great experience, helped me decide what I want to do with my law degree, and gave me reinforced passion about the law profession--all of which I talked about in my PS. If you're on the fence about whether you want to go to law school at all, a Masters in a related field may be a good option (depends entirely on your situation), giving you the option of getting a good non-law job at the end, if you decide not to pursue law after all. But if the goal is just to get into a good law school, don't do it.

Law School Admissions / Re: LSAC Admission Index Information Sheet

It's also fun to use the 25/median/75 numbers for a school and calculate the index number, and then use your numbers, and see where you fall for that school, in a more numerically-comprehensive way than just using one number or the other. Well, sometimes it's fun. Depends on how the comparison goes.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Were you one of these LSAT test takers?

I was "if I look like I'm overprepared, maybe that will up my score" girl. I had two bottles of apple juice and two granola bars (I ended up sharing at break with someone who'd forgotten to bring anything), and eight pencils, two pencil sharpeners, two erasers, and a new watch (analog). Everything but the food was pink. Half of it was just wanting to see what the nervous wrecks would do when I set out my office-store-supply of pink in an orderly array on my desk, and half of me was reassured by the OCD nature of having matching supplies. I talked to "what test is this again?" guy beforehand (I got into town 4 hours early, ate at an adorable hole-in-the-wall diner, and still sat outside the room for two hours before any proctors showed up) and he had no idea what was even tested on the LSAT. It made me feel better about myself.
