Im 24 yrs old traditional student graduated UG with 2.3GPA
Currently enrolled in grad school just finished first semester with 3.5GPA
From Louisiana planning on applying to
U of Houston
Applying for Fall 2012
Taking LSAT in Oct, what do you think I need to make on it and do you think the admissions will take into consideration grad school GPA.
Okay and one more question what is an addedem(maybe spelled it worng) ..... and when should one of these should be written, and can personal statement include reasons why UGPA is low ... no illness or tragedies .... just young dumb and didnt care about school until junior year. honest truth And if I get a 165 on the LSAT what top 50 school would be splitter friendly
get the LSAC superprep book it is really good.... and you can order some real practice test that was released by LSAC themselves and they are only about 8 dollars a piece I bought 3 of them the December October and June test from 2010.
Remember the LSAT is 75% logical reasoning and analytical reasoning and the rest is reading comprehension. Do really well on the logic.
Im currently in preparation for the October LSAT. I have been doing the logic reasoning with no time. and then I review to see what I got wrong and why. you have to review what you got wrong and why so you dont fall into the same pitfall on future questions. Then after doing that a bunch load of times. Try timing yourself at 31 minutes. I do this bcuz on test day I heard it really faster than practicing. you get 35 mins. on the real test.
thats all i can share as of now i havent taken real one yet
And to add to my previous post .... I have been working with personal instructor to assist me in doing well on the LSAT. The guy who is helping has been doing this since before I was even born. But he is really intense during our sessions. He pushes me to do well on the logic reasoning bcuz that is 75% of the LSAT. So far I have been scoring in the 150's on my practice so in October we'll see how that transitions over to the real game time.......
hey aspiringblacklawyer I have been reading your replies on other people's post and you seem knowledgeable. I had a 2.39 UGPA and now I currently have a 3.5 in grad school. I am in Louisiana, and Im studying now until the October LSAT comes. I have 6 schools that Im applying to.
University of Houston
Loyola University(New Orleans)
and my reach school is Tulane(New Orleans)
I am aiming to get a 157-162 on the LSAT, my question is do the law schools look at grad gpa's or do I have to put this in my personal statement explaining that I didnt take school seriously at the beginning part of my undergrad years and also explain the upward trend in grades towards the end of my UG years. and now i have a determination that burns in me to do well in school now.
thanks in a ahead for advice
