Studying for the LSAT / Re: June LSAT
« on: June 16, 2008, 09:23:00 PM »
Dilettante, my fears are the same as yours.  I walked out feeling like a million bucks about how I had done- however, I am noticing that many other posters are feeling the same way.  Should be an interesting time till we get scores back...

Speaking of which- anybody have any idea how long it takes to get scores back?

Games was probably tied for my best with the first Reasoning section (which is odd because Games are my worst usually)... Reading I thought was really tough this time.

Speaking of reading, I had two RCs which means one was experimental- the first RC was section 1 and the second was section 3- can anyone help me figure out which one was experimental?

What does everyone think? What was your best and worst?  Discuss.

One L by Scott Turow is pretty great if you can take it with a grain of salt.

Law School Applications / Re: pre-law... but not *Pre-Law*
« on: June 13, 2008, 03:18:49 PM »
Well, I am graduating in December and have only known since about last November that I wanted to be an attorney.  However, I have had tons of higher level business classes, includning Estate Planning, Essentials of Finance, and gobs of Accounting and Econ classes.  Also, I feel that, should I choose to operate my own firm some day, the management skills I have picked up will give me an advantage, seeing that even a law firm is still a business.

I'm not a pre-law focus, so I don't know what exactly it consists of.  I think that they gravitate towards classes that are more logic-intensive, however, the primary tendency is that most (all?) of them are poli-sci majors.

Anyway, since I am hoping to go into corporate law, I think a BS in Business Management and a JD would go well together; moreso than a degree in PoliSci.

Law School Applications / pre-law... but not *Pre-Law*
« on: June 13, 2008, 02:21:32 PM »
I was curious as to whether most of the posters are/ were considered pre-law in UG.  My university doesn't have a law school, and, while they do have a pre-law program, I feel that it is not really worth my time to declare pre-law.  I have been studying for the LSAT on my own since December, and the only advantage of our pre-law program is... well, to be honest, I don't see any advantage of the program.

Anyway, I was wondering what your thoughts were- is pre-law a worthwhile program or no?

Law School Applications / Question about how/ when to apply
« on: June 13, 2008, 09:52:23 AM »
I am taking the June LSAT, so I figure I should have my score at the latest by sometime in mid-July.  I want to apply as early as possible to about 8 different schools, and I already have in mind two or three teachers who would right me very good LoRs.  However, I don't graduate until December, so my full transcript won't be complete until then.  If I apply, will college just take into my account my GPA so far (it is quite good, and there isn't any reason to think it would lower substantially)?  I just don't really understand how the whole application through LSAC process works.

Also, another question- my LSAT ticket says not to arrive any later than 12:30.  Am I to assume that this is central time (it doesn't say, but the center is in central time)?  Also, what time would really be best to arrive- 12:00, 12:15?  Any advice would be very helpful.

Studying for the LSAT / Maybe dumb question (re:IDs)
« on: June 11, 2008, 01:13:43 PM »
This may be a dumb question, but you guys might know.  The LSAC makes it clear what kind of IDs are acceptable, and they emphasize that your ID has to have a recent picture.  I am planning on using my driver's license for my ID- however the license has a picture from when I was 16 (I just turned 21).  My license hasn't expired yet, and I haven't had any drastic physical changes.. would this be okay?
