Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: ITT we replace "T14" with "T10"
« on: February 07, 2008, 09:12:57 AM »
T 14 come from the fact that only 14 schools have ever ranked T10 in US News rankings, and never ranked below T14.

Even the idea of T10 is arbitrary.I think we as human beings like to have our numbers organized in certain number that appear more rational than others,and it just seems to odd to have 14 rather than a number that ends in 0 for the ranking. But, as I said before, the T10 isn't any more rational than T14 or T20 or T5.

AS long as Cooley continues to publish their "ranking" the jokes will continue.

I couldn't make it to reception. How did it go for those who attended? Should I try to make it to another reception coming up in March?

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know how many Korean Americans attend law school?

I think we are in same boat. My numbers for Freshman year were 1.5 and 1.7. After that it showed upward trend to have cum GPA of 3.3 and 170 LSAT. I applied to 9 of T 14 schools. Got Accepted at GULC and waitlisted at Duke and UCLA so far... others are pending... I think you will get into at least one.

This post makes me depressed... I hope the rain of rejection letters will soon end.

I'm in a similar situation. My fiance and I are planning to get married after my first year of law school.
Since you will be experiencing it first let me know how it went. From the responses I see, I think it isn't a bad idea to get married during 1L.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: some help please

For the questions you have about LR section, I had similar problems initially.
My solution was to beef up on formal logic by buying a text book on logic by Copi & Cohen, and stuying the first half of the book thoroughly. Second part is mostly about symbolic logic, which will probably confuse you more than help you out. You would be surprised to see how similar logic text boks are to questions in LR sections. I would say this is best way to go if you have a month or two left before you take the LSAT, if you have more time then that, I would recommend taking class in logic.

I honestly think that this was best way for me to study LR. After doing this for a month, my average test score jumped from 160 to 170. I hope it was helpful.

Your GPA is really competetive, but your lSAT score is not... hmmm...
Where did you go for undergrad? The reputation of undergrad, I hear, is important as well as the GPA itself.

By the way, I'm South Korean myself who applied for Fall '08.
w/ 170/3.3GPA... bombed first year as undergrad (1.8) and transfered to UC Berkeley (3.73)

I think your situation is similar to mine. We both belong to "maybe" category...

Here is my score card so far, it may give you a sense what you will be experiencing:
GULC: Accepted
Duke: Waitlisted
Columbia: Rejected
