How could anyone not put RAing as job, unless it's drastically different (volunteer?) elsewhere? We're all employees of the state, since we're a state school, and we get renumeration and a stipend. That's definitely a job, and the weekly hours were conservatively estimated at 20.

God, I hope your 'reaches' and 'targets' are a bit better than that. With your nearly perfect stats, everywhere but Yale is almost assured, aside from yield protection from Duke and their ilk.

That sounds dangerous!
Oops, wrong poster...
Anyway, when in the application cycle do you feel it's helpful to attend a forum? At the beginning or when you've finished your applications? Or just whenever they have them in your area?

Any ideas for studying besides courses for someone who's started around 170? I'm planning on self-study, as well as doing all available LSAT problems-any particular books for someone who needs help on high-end logic games and speed and just needs perfection, not general tips?

Damn them. I'd pick them over anywhere except maybe Yale, too, but whyyy.

Groundhog - If your diagnostic was a 170, I think you have nothing to worry about.
I would think so as well.
Thanks, but Boalt's GPA emphasis scares me, as does LSN's graph.

I'm applying to UCLA and USC with no intention to go there. I'm from a block away from USC, and I have a grudge against UCLA and LA. But I know I might go there if I really don't get in anywhere better-someone please tell me if I do a bit better on the LSAT, I'll get in somewhere better?

I'm afraid I'm more in Category 2, despite desperately wanting to attend Boalt. Unless you really wanted to stay only in Texas, I think you'd be happer going to Boalt.

Not quite T14, but I've heard lovely things about the lovely ladies and guys at UCLA.

It's pretty much over for me, Phi Beta Kappa wise, unless they have will allow exceptions-I took Latin so long ago, and I'm missing one course to be eligible here. I'd have to somehow re-learn all of it without taking the classes and then take that class...
