Unfortunately, I haven't been studying much for the LSAT. This summer was my last semester of undergrad work, so I'm just finishing up now. I took three of the official prep tests from LSAC and scored fairly well (162-166). I also bought both of the "10 actual prep tests" books. In total, I have 23 more prep tests that I want to take before the actual exam. That's going to work out to one every other day.  Well, I'll certainly be freshly familiar with the format!  ;)

As far as an apartment in Boston goes, you can always get something outside of Boston and take the train in and out. I went to school in Cambridge and I know that people found it less expensive to live in Summerville. I even know people who go to school in Boston and commute from North Andover... I can't imagine doing that, but to each his own.

Which schools are you sending apps to?  Also, are you signed up for the LSAT in October?


I'd really like to get in at Northeastern.  Obviously I'd be thrilled with BU or BC, but I haven't taken my LSATs yet, and I'm trying to be realistic. In fact, I'm not sure WHAT I'd do if I got in at both BU and Northeastern.  I like the program at Northeastern much more, but it's hard to argue with the prestige of BU.

I'm in for my LSAT on October 4th too... we'll have to keep in touch as it gets closer.  

I'll be done with my personal statement around the end of the month. Are you still interested in swapping statements?


I'm guessing you are from the north east too? Which school would you MOST like to get into? Also, what are your numbers?

Great!  I expect to have mine completed around he end of August. Does this time-frame work for you? If so, feel free to email me at and we can discuss the details of swapping statements.

For the record, where are you applying?  I'll be sending applications to BC, BU, New England, Western New England, Vermont, Franklin Pierce, Northeastern, Suffolk, Maine, Cornell, GW, and possibly one or two more.

You can probably tell from my list of schools that I'm from the north east. ;D


Is anyone interested in exchanging and editing personal statements with me?

Law School Admissions / I'm selling brand new LSAT/LSAC books
« on: August 09, 2003, 08:13:12 PM »
OK, here's the deal.  Up until this week, I was absolutely certain that I was going to law school.  I've decided to pursue my Ph.D. instead. The bad news is that I JUST ordered all of these LSAT prep materials, and now I have no use for them.  While I can't do anything about the money I paid to LSAC for registration and the LSACD on the Web service, I CAN at least sell the books I bought. If you are applying to law school or getting ready to take the LSATs, these books are a must have.  The following is a list of the books I have to sell:

10 Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests -- LSAC price = $30
10 More Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests -- LSAC price = $30
The Official LSAT PrepTest with Explanations -- LSAC price = $17
The Official TriplePrep Volume 1 -- LSAC price = $17
The ABA-LSAC Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools -- LSAC price = $24

LSAC Prices are listed here:

These are all BRAND NEW books that I JUST ordered. The only book I've even opened is the Guide to ABA-Approved Schools, and there are absolutely no marks or blemishes in that one. The total you'd pay through LSAC for these books would be $118.  I will see the whole lot of them for $75. If you're going to apply to law school, you need to buy this stuff anyway, so you might as well save some money on it. If no one is interested in buying the whole lot, I will entertain offers for individual books.  I have a pay pal account or I will take cash or a check in the mail... your call.

Email me at is you are interested.

OK, so now tell us which school it was. I'm dying to know...

Tell me, seriously, where do you get all this insider information? how do you know that this school has gone to the waitlist and how do you know how many slots/applicants they have? If you're that tight with the admissions office AND you know all these judges, why aren't you in already?

Good luck.
