General Board / Re: Low LSAT score
« on: June 25, 2005, 11:41:00 PM »
Both of those schools will ding you.  Take the LSAT over again and beg in an addendum that they disregard your initial score.  Honestly, how could you do that badly?  Most schools will average the scores, but if there is a significant difference (typically 10 or more points), then some will take the higher score.  Northwestern, I'm pretty sure, will always take the higer score.  In any event, you absolutely need to take the October LSAT and you should probably try studying or something this time.

Yeah, clearly the solution to our racial problems is to let rich people keep more of their money.  Eliminate welfare and racism will disappear.

Was this really something you needed them to clarify?

Law School Applications / Re: columbia LORs

Don't worry about it.  LORs matter very, very little.  If you don't want to ask your supervisor for one, don't.

Don't worry; I have a strong feeling that biglaw won't be an option for you.

Law School Applications / Re: national merit scholarship?

Again, it's not going to make a difference.  It's not going to put you over the top or help at all.  They will spend maybe ten seconds even looking at your resume.

Law School Applications / Re: Early Decision or No?
« on: September 03, 2006, 02:00:32 PM »
Apply early, but not ED.  Just get your app in early in the cycle.  Your odds aren't great, but they're not horrible.  You'll definitely get into at least a couple of the T14.

Unless your father is going to give you a job, don't bother.  Touro is a truly horrible school and would be a tremendous waste of money.

Certainly at least a 170.  But really, what difference does it make?  If you haven't taken the LSAT yet, there's no reason to ask.  You should obviously try to do as well as possible on the LSAT.  I've never understoody why people bother with questions like this.  I mean, if somebody tells you that you only need a 175, are you going to deliberately get five questions wrong?

First of all, no, of course they can't.  That would be ridiculous, especially as every school would get a different number.

Second of all, there's no reason to bother sending a whole list to Fordham.  It's not like they really care and there's no way for them to know which schools you applied to, anyway.
