Law School Admissions / "Splitter" questions
« on: October 06, 2005, 08:44:04 AM »
Hi. I'm what you call a "splitter" I guess. I anticipate a score in the high 160's on my lsat, but I've got a LSDAS GPA of 3.04. I know I don't have a good chance at any of the GPA-intensive schools, but for others, how does this affect admissions?

I've been using chiashu and the lsac admissions calculator to guage my chances at schools, but for almost all of the schools, I am above or towards the end of their LSAT range and way behind their GPA range. Will this just increase the uncertainty of where I will get in? What schools would you guys add/subtract from my list? Thanks for the help. I'm fairly new here and this board has been fun.

my list:

Far reach- UMich, Northwestern
Reach- UNC
Target- Wisconsin, Georgia, Emory
Safety- Lewis & Clark
ExtraSafe Safety- NCCU

I'm an NC resident with 1 yr WE and great LOR's, white male.

Studying for the LSAT / Post-LSAT Depression
« on: October 06, 2005, 08:02:53 AM »
I know this might sound, I don't know, crazy as @#!*, but I've been suffering some major post-LSAT anxiety and depression.

Every night since the test I have had nightmares, ranging from my girlfriend giving some other guy a blowjob to being charged with manslaughter after a prank gone awry to my entire family dying.

I'm overwhelmed with feelings of doom and impending failure and to say that I am feeling a lot of trepidation about my score is a major understatement.

I've been quiet and subdued at work, and after work I am getting frustrated and enraged by the littlest things, like not being able to find a copy of the Family Guy Movie DVD or waiting at a red light for too long.

I'm taking these petty frustrations out on my girlfriend, who I love very much, but unfortunately she has become the target of my insecurity and fear.

Anyone else experiencing this? I know it's nuts. I've been trying to get my mind off the test but I am just so anxious to find out what I got in order to start my apps, I am going stir crazy. I made a microsoft excel tool to calculate which schools are the best fit for me based on things like ranking, avg salary, weather, culture, people, facilities, faculties, all weighted differently based on my priorities. I know its dorky but it's been fun. This sucks.

Choosing the Right Law School / my friend's numbers
« on: October 03, 2005, 11:34:03 AM »
my friend has a 2.8 and a 133 on his first diagnositc, I'm guessing he can get that up at least 10 points, so lets assume a 143. Is there anywhere he can get in? I don't know much about tier 4's and stuff.

Studying for the LSAT / anyone else's scores all over the map?
« on: September 27, 2005, 06:42:50 PM »
My last few practice tests: 164, 166, 166, 171, 180, 165

I dont really know what to make of these. are the 171 and 180 total flukes? Or was I just fatigued when I took the others? Was I more relaxed/alert?

anyway just trying to see if anyone else has got a similar scattershot thing happening.
