Law School Applications / General Application Questions
« on: August 26, 2008, 11:46:49 AM »
A few questions:

I am taking my first LSAT this October, and plan to enter law school in September 09. When should I register for LSDAS and fill out applications and the like?

Also, how many personal statements do I need? Should I just write one general statement or write a new one for each school.

What is considered a good recommendation letter? I have a few attorney friends who will write them for me, as well as a few professors? should I camp outside the local congressman's office for his recommendation as well? =)

Thanks for your help guys!

Oh no I haven't taken the LSAT at all yet. I am still prepping. I registered for October but am debating whether I will be ready or not. I have all the 10 More LSAT books, as well as superprep, both bibles, and more (Kaplan and Princeton stuff as well)

I am just thinking for the future in case I don't like my scores =). But hopefully I will happy with them.

Thanks for the reply though. I didn't know I was only allowed to take it twice a year.

I know most people take the LSAT once or twice but is it ok to take it more than that? What if I don't like my scores on the first and second try?

I have noticed that as I go through PT's, a problem I am having is not understand some of the answer choices in the flaw questions.

What does it mean when the answer choice says "Presupposes what it sets out to prove" or "presupposes what it sets out to establish"

Also, I have learned to identify some key flaws based on the language used in the passage. I.e, if they say "john can only have 3 apples" I should look for something with an alternate possibility in the answer choice.

What type of signs should I be looking for  when these "presupposes what it sets out to establish" answers are the correct answers?

Thanks everyone,
Rita

Wow you guys are harsh..

All I wanted to know was whether there were any KEY things I should look for. I've read almost half of it today.
If you have nothing nice to say, don't say it at all.

And you guys are going to make some wonderful lawyers one day. Assuming s**t before you know the facts. My TUTOR is the one that recommended I buy the book and I should first read it and then we will go over what I don't understand. This is on top of everything else we are doing. And my TUTOR is hired only to help me with LR because i am getting a perfect score on the LG and almost perfect on RC.

you people are pathetic. Get a life. This is a forum, sarcasm should be left at the door.
UR motivation sure to take you far. UR sensitivity maybe good on sundays in church groups when people want to cry, sing songs and hug.  For sugarcoated things try a caramel apple, U not gonna find that in law process sweetie. Wild guess, maybe toughen up, do work, and cry alone in bathroom when nobody around.

Who are you to question my motivation? or my sensitivity for that matter?

And what I am not going to find in the law process is YOU. Why? Because you will still be here, on this forum...wasting your stupid worthless life away

Yeah I know you're right. I always look for the easy way out, not with this though.

Just figured I would give it a try.

I'll read the ENTIRE thing.  :)

Studying for the LSAT / Logical Reasoning Bible

I just bought the Logical Reasoning Bible and find it to me very helpful even though I am only on Chapter 3 Must Be True Questions.

Can anyone tell me where the "important stuff" is?

At this point, I would be wasting precious time if I just sat down and read the entire thing, although, if this is the only way then it is what I will do. BUT, if there are specific pages I should look at versus reading it from front to black, please let me know.

Thanks for your help everyone,

Rita
