Studying for the LSAT / Re: Some info on getting our scores...
« on: March 04, 2005, 10:15:39 AM »
As a first time tester, LSAC shows my LSDAS report status as "First Time Report"

All signs point to imminent score release. I am going to leave my phone in my car before I go to class, otherwise ill be burning up minutes checking my email every 5 minutes.

There was less anxiety in my life when I had a jumpmaster shove me out an air-plane at airborne school.

Then again I was pretty sure how gravity was supposed to work... while I am not so certain the gravity my LSAT score will have on my applications.

My experience is limited to an undergraduate course in procedural law where the instructor used the Socratic method. It was definitely an effective tool for teaching critical thinking skills.

If you are only comfortable in structured lectures where all you do is copy down notes from power-point presentations, not so good for you. However if you are a person who sits in class and always feels like you know the next thing your professor is going to blurt out, you might be at home. Instead of the professor giving you all the answers, you are expected to find them yourself.

You aren't expected to have all the right answers, what is important rather is that you can construct a coherent and logically valid argument from precedent and statutory law. In fact what is "legally" correct is open to a matter interpretation.

I am in complete agreement amarain. Checking your account every 9 minutes will NOT post your scores any faster.

You are not going to "out-think" the LSAC on this; just relax and you will eventually get your score whenever they damn well feel like emailing it to you.

Under the federal TA program as an "active" drilling member of the Guard/Reserve you can get up to $4500 a year for any school, by submitting a DA 2171 through your unit.

If paying for school is more important than entering AD, you may want to consider submitting a DA 4187 to cancel your ED delay and enter the National Guard. Most states offer pretty good post-grad education benefits; out of state fee waivers, reduced tuition and tuition assitance beyond the federal TA program.

Depending on state you could get most if not all your tuition paid for.

But then you open yourself up to having your OBC, drills and above all deployments interfering with your law school plans.
