Law School Applications / Re: Boalt In-State
« on: November 14, 2005, 06:48:58 PM »
Ouch! That's what I was afraid of. With my GPA likely being worse than my LSAT, I was hoping for a boost. Not worried too much about UCLA, though I'd hate to move back home...

Law School Applications / Boalt In-State
« on: November 14, 2005, 06:26:56 PM »
What's the general consensus about how being a California resident affects admission to Boalt? What about coming from another UC campus? I understand usually it's easier to be accepted in-state, but Boalt phrases their website oddly.

Fantastic news! And I'm not even applying there until next year, but I feel like my LSAT > my GPA...

Edited for "until"

Law School Applications / Re: Fall 2007 Roll Call!

I'm applying for 2007 as well, but I want to be done and have my applications in in September so I can slack off and enjoy my last year here on the beach.

Law School Applications / Re: Rate Your Soft Factors
« on: October 26, 2005, 12:48:57 PM »
I chose above average. I'm hoping my soft factors will make me more attractive than similarly ranked applicants, since I don't have godly stats, though I think they're pretty good. Inner city kid, lots of diversity experience, some minor leadership stuff on campus and jobs, as well as starting college full-time before finishing a year in high school.

LSAC and LSDAS / Re: GPA Differences

Actually, LSAC uses A- = 3.67, so if your GPA is different, there's another reason.

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

LSAC and LSDAS / Re: Is LSAC online application service on?
« on: August 28, 2005, 08:17:55 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.

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.
