LSAT horror stories / Re: LSAT TAKERS! DO NOT USE KAPLAN
« on: June 14, 2004, 05:16:44 PM »
I took the Kaplan prep course and all of the tests were real LSATs. However, I didn't find the online workshops that useful. I had to repeat the couse because I wasn't happy with my progress. Kaplan let me repeat the course for free. They will only refund you the money if you show them a real LSAT report showing score that is lower than your diagnostic score at Kaplan. I think that the best way to improve your score is to work through the preptests from LSAC. No course can replace this.

I will be there at 10:30 - 11:00. This is one date I shouldn't be late for.

Thank you guys for giving me your feedback. Good luck on the LSAT!

Took the Kaplan course twice - wasn't happy with my score after the first time. Repeated the couse for free.
6 months total - 10 hours/week average
8 hours/day average for the past two weeks.

I think you can use the time between now and October more wisely if you focus on strengthening (o my - can't you tell I am studying for the LSAT) the rest of your application. Go volunteer somewhere, write a great statement, think of a way to show your PhD experience in a positive way, etc. The difference in score will not matter as much if you get over 170.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Game over for me!!! AHH!

I think you should wait until October. I was initially going to take the December 2003 test, but decided to wait. I think I have a much better shot at the test now than I had in December.

Mine says 12:30 PM too. I checked with LSAC and they said that this is the time for the June test.

Non-Traditional Students / Re: Please Help . . . Do I have a chance?
« on: June 09, 2004, 09:30:08 PM »
Hello,
YES - you have a chance! All of us do! You should explain the circumstances that prevented you from getting a high GPA on a separate note to the law school you are applying to. Almost every law school gives you the opportunity to explain a certain aspect of your law school application (in your case GPA) that seems unfavorable. Take this as an opportunity to expain your difficulties in undergrad and desire to attend law school.

TimZ - don't worry - they will evaluate your transcripts regardless of whether you attended a US school. Just keep on working with the sections. Games is also the most difficult for me, but so is for most other test takers. LR was my best section. At one point I was averaging 1-2 wrong choices. Right now it is 8-10. I dont' know what is going on. It seems like the latest exams are the most difficult.
