Oh Canada! / Toronto - LSAT study groups
« on: August 15, 2005, 12:41:46 PM »
Well.. I have been preparing for LSAT for little over a month now, however, being the lazy bum that I am, I often feel it hard to convince myself to sit and practice LSAT questions for an extended period of time. So I was wondering if there are others who find themselves in similar situation? We can meet up once a week, and write atleast one full length practice test. So who's in?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: suggestions -- HELP!

Thank you all.

to add little bit more, I had an entrance scholarship to an Ivy league school, graduated with a degree in math, and received faculty honors (top 5% - 4.0) in the first year of university. After the first year things went pretty bad. Most of my friends & the batch-mates nes who were academically at the same level as I was, are graduate students at MIT, Caltech, Stanford & Columbia. Of Course, I can not bring back what I've lost, but I will not let it perpetuate. Oh well it's life.. as someone said, "as the river comes to your house, it's the world that we live in". living for the hope beyond sight and continuing struggle is what makes a man, human. I will not give up..

yep, I graduated with a math degree and that's the reason I am hoping to do better on the LSATs. Good luck for the admission.

Law School Applications / suggestions -- HELP!

hi all,

well, I recently graduated from university with a low GPA (2-2.5 range). However there were many contributing factors to that which I have documented proof for. First of all my Dad's business plunged when I was in 1st year of university and almost instantaneously we went from living in a mansion to apartment. then my mother got diagnosed with cancer which added to the familial problems. i had to work almost fulltime all along my undergrad years, and couldn't perform well in school at all. Recently, I started seeing a psychiatrist as I was becoming increasingly worried for my performance in school, work and other areas of life. I was told that I was suffering from major depressive disorder, and that too for the last 4 years (almost all along my undergrad). Now I am on anti-depressants, doing better lately and thinking of putting the shattered pieces of my life back together. i went to one of the top 10 undergrad schools in North America, and was awarded entrance scholarship for excellent high school grades.

I am planning on writing LSATs soon, and am hoping to perform well. I do want to get into a law school, but I think I lack the experience (no internships, voluntary experience) and the academic credentials to get into a law school. IS there still any hope for me? how should I tackle this situation? any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

many thanks
