LSAC and LSDAS / Re: GPA Differences
« on: October 26, 2005, 10:05:46 AM »
Actually, LSAC uses A- = 3.67, so if your GPA is different, there's another reason.

LSAC and LSDAS / Re: How long to calculate LSAC GPA?

Ws shouldn't hurt you, but NCs often will. The LSAC is notorious for being harsh about it.

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.

Personal Statement / Re: when to study for LSAT
« on: August 28, 2005, 05:28:27 AM »
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.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Testmasters Diagnostic 2 - Thoughts? Scores?
« on: August 28, 2005, 04:59:35 AM »
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.

Law School Applications / Re: Minor Traffic Violation
« on: August 26, 2005, 08:43:26 AM »
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?
