Thanks for the response. Makes me a little ashamed at having gone through all the test prep but oh well. By the way, you can spare me the pseudo philosophy next time.

Choosing the Right Law School / What is a T2 school?
« on: March 30, 2009, 02:08:22 PM »
I'm just curious. World News lists three tiers: one, three and four. When people talk about T2s, what do they mean? The lower half of World News' T1? Thanks

My friend recently told me she got a 163 on a free Kaplan-administered practice LSAT. She told me she only did "substandard" on the logic games part and that she "took too long." Now, this girl is smart, and I think with practice a 163 would have been very doable for her. But she is also quite vain. She volunteered her supposed LSAT score without my asking for it, while also casually telling me that law wasn't for her. To me this suggested that she was lying about her score, and simply using it as an way to advertise her intelligence, which she likes to do. I was just wondering if getting a 163 is possible without any practise whatsoever, and without any real acquaintance with the structure of the test or the typology of its questions? I mean, how can you get this score and yet "take too long," or do "substandard" on any part. I'd like to hear if other people agree with suspicions.

I was going to but, seeing as I have already decided to attend in the Fall, I figured I'd spare myself the hassle.

I live in Boston and am a 08 BU grad. Albany wasn't my first choice, mostly because I wasn't familiar with the area and wanted to stay in Boston. But they've offered me a scholarship and so I've accepted. Do you have any pointers or advice, having been there two years? I'd be grateful to you for sharing them.

I am on the waitlist at a few schools and am wondering how much time they give you to decide to attend after being offered a place. Specifically, do they require an on-the-spot decision? Or are you allowed to get back to them? Thanks
