Studying for the LSAT / Re: Between a rock and a hard place
« on: December 04, 2005, 01:37:00 PM »
I know how all of you guys feel. Although i wasn't testing very high (mid 150s) throughout, i feel i just had an unusually high number of guesses yesterday. my major is civil engineering, so i guess i could work fora yr as an engineer, but flip, i dont wanna do that. i wanna start this l-school right now. i dont wanna make this a 4yr + time studying/passing calif bar process. Yesterday, i could have scored anywhere from 146 to 154... but who knows. damn. don't know wat to do. don't even know if my score will improve much the next time i take it. this whole LSAT and admissions process is literally a disease. good luck to all you guys in the same boat.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: A question about LSAC - please ,please, help
« on: December 04, 2005, 05:08:29 AM »
I remember reading one reply by somebody regarding misbubbling. he skipped a question (around #19) and then from 20 thru 25 he obviously misbubbled. aka pulled a rowshift. anywhoz, he called LSAC... they did handscoring for him (for a small fee) and saw the problem and actually awarded him points for 20-25... for the ones that he got right. i was astonished to hear this, but thats wat he claims. i suggest u call lsac on monday and see wat up. also, i rememeber him saying that some reps will tell u to go to hell while others will be more generous and try to help you solve the situation. if you get an a-hole, hang up, and call back. hope this helps.

i had the same damn one. that's not really a typical writing sample topic is it? the way the instructions were phrased??

also, if it makes u feel any better... i gotta "warning" for working in the wrong section (oct 05). i dont know wat i was thinking... i ended the LR section with doing only like 16 of em and then i identified the experimental and during that time i was trying to make up my pts. anyways, i cancelled, and nothing happened. except a letter from lsac that said "u were issued a citation for bla bla bla... we hope you will conform to testing procedures next time and good luck with your applications". so in essence, if u cancel, its gone. (assuming its only a 1st warning. anything beyond that, i have no clue)

Your offense is quite minor. I seriously would not be worried about it. If anything, you should call LSAC on monday and be honest with them and tell them exactly what happened. It is really ridiculous for the proctor to issue you a warning for that. Probably a verbal warning should have sufficed. anywhoz, in regards to the comment made in a subsequent reply, IF you do cancel your score, it won't look "fishy" because the warning will also be erased. The only thing that will appear is a "Candidate cancel." Although, LSAC will keep this warning in their internal records. But like i said, this is too minor and u shouldnt worry. but call lsac nonetheless and see wat up.

Personal Statement / Re: GPA Addendum = any readers

PM me. i'll take a look. i'm workin on mine also.

Does anybody have any ideas/suggestions on what information to provide the professor who is writing the letter of rec? I've heard one should give their personal statement to them so they have an idea where the student is coming from and perhaps will try to corroborate the letter with the personal statement. anybody know anything else? thanks alot.

Studying for the LSAT / Fear of never passing The Bar
« on: October 15, 2005, 05:32:18 AM »
(assuming you plan to practice in California)

Does anybody fear never passing the difficult calif. bar? or fear it might take them years to do it? and if so, what is the point of law school?

anybody know what the average lsat score is of people who don't pass the bar? or the minimum lsat generally necessary to pass the bar?
