Studying for the LSAT / Re: Newest of the n00bs

Honestly, if you enjoy studying for the LSAT then you will probably enjoy law school if you hate studying for the LSAT you will probably not enjoy law school. With that I would recommend setting a goal to take the December LSAT that will give you months to prepare and study and will cost you about $100.00 and a Saturday afternoon.

Good luck.
Thanks so much CL and NM, I appreciate it.

That's another reason I came to this forum, as I am planning to give a shot to LSAT first and then see what would be my options and all---Definitely not trying to put my carriage in front of the horse.

Any suggestions where to start for LSAT, there's a lot of material online and can be overwhelming. I mean, any specific website or an online forum to start studying?

I have given GRE in the past for my Masters, never took GMAT though.

BTW, is LSAT an only factor in determining admission or schools look at few other things too?

P.S: What you meant by $100, is that test fee? Thought it's ~$160-$170.

Thanks for your help and response.

I am pretty happy in my career and making decent money(relative term).

Thinking about law school to have a secure career and at the end, more money. That's why asking you guys, before I make such a big financial and personal commitment.

Is LSAT an only factor in determining about a good school or no?Law schools only consider undergrad GPA or will take into account my Masters GPA too? How can I find out what it's really like to be a lawyer (very different from TV and movies) ?

Thanks again for helping out and sorry for too many questions.

Afternoon Folks-

Found the forum very helpful and full of knowledgeable people.

As the title states, I am considering to give LSAT in the coming months or even next year.

Question is, should I go to law school or no? If so, how should I prepare and what should be my school options for it?

Just to give you a background about myself, have a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering(68%), did my Masters in Telecoms(3.45 GPA, one C). Have good speaking, presentation and analytical skills. Being English as the second language, writing skills are just fine, not the best( I guess?).

Just testing the waters at the moment and dipping my toes for LSAT.

Based on my background/profile, would it be a good idea to go to law school? If it matters at all, I am in Washington DC area.

Would appreciate any advice, guidance and input. I have pretty thick skin, so any honest comment/opinion and critique won't upset me.

Thanks for helping out guys.
