Studying for the LSAT / June 2007 LSAT Games - #17
« on: May 04, 2009, 04:53:22 PM »
I cannot for the life of me figure out why the answer to #17 on the June 2007 test is D instead of E.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Introductory logic book

I'm using the Powerscore Bibles now.  I believe even Powerscore recommends finding an intro to logic book.

Studying for the LSAT / Introductory logic book

I have heard that a great, effective way to prep for the LSAT was to pick up an introductory logic book.  Any reccomendations or personal experience?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Practice LSAT's
« on: February 28, 2009, 08:01:00 PM »
I want to see how my practice scores turn out after studying on my own.  If I can't get over the hump, I'll probably find a course.  I've heard many differing opinions about courses and I don't want to pay $1000+ to find out the instructor is great.  I do think it would be advantageous to at least talk about the LSAT with others in a class setting.  All the lawyers I know (four), including my pre-law advisor, studied for the LSAT on their own for whatever that's worth.

Studying for the LSAT / Practice LSAT's
« on: February 28, 2009, 06:19:47 PM »
I'm planning to take the LSAT either this October or next February.  I'm starting to prep now.  I'm taking a free practice LSAT administered by the Princeton Review at my school in a week.  I've been reading glowing reviews of the Powerscore bibles, so I think I'm going to buy the trilogy and the book of 10 actual LSAT's put out by the LSAC.  Should I be concerned that the LSAT's in the book are old, from the early 1990's in some cases?  Or has the test remained relatively the same throughout the years?  I decided against taking a prep course, partly because of the money, but mainly because I am a disciplined enough student to study on my own.  Any constructive criticism on my plan?

Studying for the LSAT / Taking the LSAT now, applying later
« on: February 24, 2009, 05:10:23 PM »
I'm currently a junior in college.  I am planning to take two years off after graduation (May 2010) to work, save some money, and then apply to law school or a JD/MBA program in the fall of 2012.  In a few weeks I'm taking a practice LSAT for the first time, with absolutely no preparation so I can gauge my glaring weaknesses.  I want to get an LSAT book to start prepping, take a course in the fall, and then take the test in February 2010 so I can bank my score (I believe they are good for 5 years?).  I figure it's better for me to do it while I am a student because I will be in "study mode" and I figure I will have less commitments while in college than while working full-time.  Any advice?  Is this a good plan?

Internal auditing, which works very close with the legal department from what I understand.

Law School Applications / Goldman Sachs
« on: February 16, 2009, 07:45:47 PM »
How much would an undergrad internship, and hopefully a few years of experience, at Goldman Sachs help my chances of getting into Harvard/Columbia/NYU Law?

Law School Applications / A year or two off vs Going straight from college
« on: December 29, 2008, 06:09:06 PM »
I am currently a junior in college and have been contemplating law school for the past few years.  I always thought I would go directly from college to law school, but recently I have been considering another plan.  I think I'd like to work for at least two years so I can save up some money, start paying down my undergrad loans, and develop a particular interest to focus on at school.  I am also considering business school or perhaps a JD/MBA program, though I know the consensus is that the dual degree is not a good idea.  How is the application process different if you don't go straight from college? When would you take the LSAT's? While in college and then hold onto the scores for a few years? Do you ask professors for recommendations while in school and hang on to them for a few years?  I'm aiming for a top school, so if I get rejected out of school, can a few years in the work place make the difference if I reapply?  Do employers ever help pay for law school? If so, what portion?

Law Firms / Moving from private sector to public
« on: September 29, 2007, 11:06:24 PM »
Is it possible to go from practicing at a private firm to to working for the government or teaching?  Do judges ever come out of private firms or are they always prosecutors?
