Where should I go next fall? / Third Tier or Rutgers Newark?
« on: May 09, 2007, 09:51:16 PM »
So, I've been accepted to University of Maine and (am from Houston) will probably live in Mass or Maine for the rest of my life, but I also may have the options of Rutgers Newark or the University of Houston.
I like the idea of U Maine; small school, laid back and good local/regional rep. But at the same time I want to go to best...school for my future.

Do Maine's strong state and New England reputations out weigh the 60th and 70th ranked schools, since I will live in NE? Or is going to one of these other schools and then moving back to NE the better option (considering having to uproot, loose connections, etc? Will I really get that much better of an education? Thanks.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Villanova Waitlist Thread
« on: May 09, 2007, 09:34:33 PM »
I am wait listed and managed to speak with Noe Bernal? Dean or assistant of admissions. He informed me that the wait list contained 200 names and in not ranked of course. He also said that they go 30, sometimes 60 deep and that the apps. are reviewed (I doubt this, but it did make me feel better) in full each time admissions needs to pull one.

Hey there, the best way to study no matter who's material is exposing yourself to the questions, to the test. I read and read and read, but it wasn't until I began taking test after test (and section after section) that I began to "understand" what the test wanted from me and my score really improved.

I found study books helpful. If I had one book to pick from it would be the Super test prep book by LSAC. The essential part is the full explanations for every question on three full tests. This helped me to understand what the test wanted from me.

They all have their strengths and weaknesses. I found the Logic games bible the most thorough in games, but then learned a few new techniques from the kaplan book that helped me understand the area better. Same for the other sections. Really, study and take at least one practice test every week.

LSAT horror stories / Stop reading and study more!
« on: May 09, 2007, 09:16:09 PM »
The LSAT IS a HARD test a very hard test, but don't waist valuable prep time reading someone else's bad news about the LSAT. Go study, study harder than you think you can, more than you think you need to. Take a class if you can. buy several or all study guides; pick and choose and develop your personal techniques for each section, each type of question. As you become more comfortable with the test, the less anything that may happen that day will matter. Good luck!
