Studying for the LSAT / Re: Help! Should I Cancel!? Any Input would Help
« on: October 06, 2005, 03:58:17 PM »
I'm in the same boat.
I was scoring high 160s - low 170s in practice, guessing on about 5-8 questions per exam. Thenm on Saturday, I pooped the bed and pushed the wrong button on my timer for the two LR sections and I ended up blind guessing on like 9 questions. I know I did ok on RC and LG, but I am really worried about the 9 blind D's on the answer sheet.

I know I will be stressing about this until the deadline to cancel passes, no matter what I decide in the end.

I wish you the best and I hope you are happy with your decision.

Thanks for the advice, SCK...sounds like you have thought through some of these issues as well. Good luck with the apps.

Alix - where can I send the PS? I'm new to this board, so I'm not sure if there is a way to send a file through these pages...I'm still working on a final draft but you'll see it soon.

Law School Applications / Re: Dean's Certification

Sugersh,

Thanks for the reply. I guess its not so bad after all. I know a couple people at my old dean's office, so it should all work out.

Good luck on your 6 choices...sounds like they would all be lucky to have you.

Personal Statement / Career Changer PS

I like my PS so far, but I am struggling with the appropriate language in one specific section, I'm hoping someone can help.

The statement is about the reasons I went into teaching high school after undergrad... basically about wanting to save the world one new york city kid at a time.

Now I see that the scope of teaching is somewhat limited, and I want to make policy changes at more of a community level. That is where law comes in.

Basically, I know that this is why I want to go to law school, but I am having trouble articulating precisely how a legal education can help someone change public policy through government, foundations, etc. Can anyone spell out for me exactly how lawyers build the skills that help them institute public policy (health initiatives, community developmnet, affirmative action, charter school programs, etc.)?

I feel like my PS jumps from point A to C, from me teaching directly to policy ideas I have and I am not as clear on the middle B point, where one actually goes to school gets their skills together.

How would you articulate this?

Thanks -

Law School Applications / Dean's Certification

Is there a way to send this bad boy to different schools through LSAC or do I have to send each school's individual forms to my old undergrad dean? I live across the country now so I am hoping there is some simple way to do this all in one shot, like the LSAC letter of rec service!

Thanks. Not where I want to be, but I guess I could deal with that.

Studying for the LSAT / What will an 80 Raw Score get me?
« on: October 02, 2005, 01:54:28 AM »
Anybody have an idea of recent trends in scoring scales? I know it's a logical mistake but still...

I have been scoring high 160s - low 170s, and I figure I missed no more than twenty, worst case scenario. Anyone want to speculate on what the range for a raw 80 would be on this bad boy?

PS - This is my first post on this thing and I just want to wish everyone on here the best of luck bc this forum has been so rich - nerve-wracking, addictive, entertaining, insightful, and above all, interesting. I hope that we all exceeded our expectations and that all of the other test takers out there pooped the bed today.  ;)
