*&^%!!! A was the one I picked for parts I didn't finish!! I hate this test!! Why can't I get a break once!!

I have a question!!?? This is my second cycle of applications, When I resend the application is it really important that I say I already applied there last year?? Couldn't that give them a bias toward me?? Thanks

I'm taking it at Temple, last time I took it at Villanova Law, it wasn't a good place at all, the desks were wood and had carvings all in it making it hard to work w/o tearing the page. I hope temple is better, A change of venue, for a change in score. (hopefully)

What are the best schools for Latinos to get into?? I have heard some crazy rummors that say if you are latino, then add 5points onto your LSAT. What do you think?? I'm latino, who has a decent GPA 3.6, but terrible first LSAT, i'm testing now in the low 150's. Hopefully I can pull around 155 or higher, but we will see, realistically i'm in the high 140's low 150's. What schools have you heard about?? I though Florida schools would be tough, b/c there are already such a latino majority, maybe I could use that as a pro, since there are so many latinos in Florida, the need for latino lawyers and law students grows. What do you all think?? gracias por alguna respuesta hecha.

I did for them all. WHo cares, they read what they want to anyway.

I filled it out using the LSAC service, but after that printed them all out and mailed them myself. I think it gets to the schools quicker. Any thoughts about mailing them yourself versus electronic ommittance. ?

I'm looking at this schools website, Why aren't they ranked if they are an ABA school?

 Yea sadly I got denied by Widener DE campus also. I'll probibly try Harrisburg this time too. Bottom line i'm still working on the LSAT, I don't know how I did so bad, the LSAT has control of my freaking soul!Sad thing is that my GPA is higher than most schools average. It is a shame that 4 long years of doing well in a higher instituion means nothing compared to a 1 4hr exam. :(

Some people also put deposits down at numerous schools, and hold out until the last minute. Some guy just posted about having deposits down at 3 schools, and then having to tell 2 of them he is not going days prior to orientation. There is a lot of gamesmanship at this stage, and holding out to try and negotiate more money seems pretty commonplace.

Wow that just annoys me how some people are waiting to get more money from schools. I don't want any schools money, i just want them to let me in DAMIT!!.
