Studying for the LSAT / Did Anyone Use A Private Tutor?
« on: January 04, 2009, 04:07:25 PM »
I'm retaking the LSAT in February and will be spending five intense weeks working with a private tutor. 

Has anyone else used a private tutor (and LSAT practice tests) to prep and, if so, how much improvement did you see?  I know that each case is different and a lot depends on who the private tutor is, but I just thought I'd see how much improvement people had?

I decided on a private tutor because neither the Princeton Review Online nor self-study helped me one bit.  Just thought I'd see if anyone had similar experiences and then went to straight tutoring.

I'll let you guys know how it goes, i.e., how big of a jump, if any, there is.

(I sure do wish I lived close enough to EarlCat to have him be my private tutor. . . . )

Law School Admissions / How Long Will Site Be Down - 10-12-08?
« on: October 12, 2008, 11:15:10 AM »
Hi Everyone,

Do any of you know how long the LSAC site will be offline and unavailable today?

I was bumped off it while doing things, and then I remembered that I saw something about the site being down today.  Unfortunately I did not read the fine print, so I'm not sure how long it'll be unavailable.


I'm an older student who's applying to law school this year.  I am currently preparing to slaughter the October LSAT and tackle a few applications this summer and now I'm wondering if I should hire a professional admissions consultant to advise me or not hire one at all?

I think I'll have a small number of applications -- between 3 and 5 -- but I really want to get in this year so I'm willing to hire help, if necessary.

Did or does anyone here use an admissions consultant and, if so, which one?  Did anyone notice a difference between a paid admissions consultant and the pre-law advisor in a typical undergraduate institution?  To hire or not to hire, that is the question.  Or is it a waste of money?

Thanks for your thoughts.
