Law School Admissions / Re: Is LSAC online application service on?
« on: August 28, 2005, 05:17:55 AM »
Thanks, I hope this works, but I haven't been able to try it yet due to LSAC downtime. I usually use a mac for everything but apps(until the new app system comes out!), so the finer points of fooling around with XP are lost on me.

It's never too early to start studying for the LSAT. I'm assuming you're on semesters, because if you're on quarters, the June LSAT is a bad time to take the LSAT. That being said, you might want to start taking a course a few months beforehand and maybe get your brain going right now by doing a few problems a week, just to get a general idea what it's like.

I actually went down a point from 170 to 169. But that's because, like you, I didn't finish the second logic games section. Part that annoys me is that on the "experimental" (which was a real one from 2001) I did perfectly and finished with plenty of time, which would've given me like a 175. Ah well..luck of the draw?

I'm hoping my actual score will be somewhere in between.

Thank you. Would you be interested in reading it? Should I post a new thread in the PS forum asking for volunteers?

Anyone else want to read?

I have been having the same problem under XP/IE duo of power. I have the settings accept all cookies and block no pop-ups, but it keeps prompting me to install ActiveX...

Hey there. I'm from South Central, and I'd love to see what kind of personal statement you wrote about that. I was going to be working that into my personal statement as well. What school do you teach at? My local HS just lost its accreditation, actually.

I think a general guide is that unless you had a horrible at-fault accident or were convicted of a misdemeanor, you can safely count it as a "minor traffic violation" akin to speeding. Defective equipment sounds even more like a fix-it than a speeding ticket...

Thanks for the frank advice. I was planning on using it as my main personal statement, though, figuring maybe it'll help me stand out compared to other non-URMs. I figured it might make for a different perspective, if nothing else, which I hoped law schools might value.

What kind of addendum would I write, and is it worth drawing attention to the two NCs for a .05 boost in GPA?

The LSAC will count both the F and the A, even if your undergrad institution doesn't, so that will not be a significant boost to your GPA. Unless your GPA is going to be raised(and you're certain of your performance come Fall) significantly just by adding a few As, which seems unlikely, you should apply as early as possible.

Law School Admissions / Re: How do Minors look?

While far from being an expert on the issue, I believe that a minor that is not related to your major could show breadth, especially if your major isn't exactly what law schools normally look for. So if you're an accounting major and minored in English, that would probably look good. But if you majored in English, and minored in History, it probably wouldn't be as helpful. I see it more as a crutch, but that could just be me spouting nonsense.
