Where should I go next fall? / Question about fee waivers
« on: October 25, 2008, 02:50:25 PM »
I just got my LSAT score back and i'm applying to 10 public schools. ppl on here talk about how they are getting fee waivers in the mail, do these come to just people who have excellent scores? I got a 160 on my LSAT and GPA is 3.9. Is it likely that I will get some fee waivers if I hold off a few weeks? My cycle is going to cost $500+, but i've narrowed it down as much as possible

Personal Statement / PS- Beginning to draft...have basic questions!
« on: July 23, 2008, 10:57:11 AM »
I am taking a vacation week next week to study for LSAT and draft my personal statement and send out requests for LORs. I am wondering how tailored your PS should be regarding the school you are applying. Do you do a lot of research per school or do people generally send the same one to all the schools?

2. Do you have to submit your personal statement through the LSAC site or do you mail it in with your paper application?

3. Should you attach a picture with your personal statement even if they don't ask for one?

4. I am a 21 year old traditional student with no "traumatic" events to focus on. Pretty much your average person and I'm having a problem coming up with a topic. I've interned at several law firms, but nothing that led to a drastic realization of me wanting to become a lawyer. I also don't know what kind of law I want to practice, but I am interested in several avenues. Not really sure a topic!! Everyone seems to of written about living abroad, overcoming diversity, etc.

5. Is it okay to try and be humorous? There was an earthquake on the day i was visiting a potential school and I thought I could say something funny about it...

6. You're supposed to send in your resume with your app too, right? So there isn't a need to mention all the things you did because they'll see it anyway?

POWERSCORE VS. TESTMASTERS VS. KAPLAN VS. PRINCETON REVIEW

Any thoughts on which one is the best? I've decided to go ahead an take one to keep me studying and focused. However, I'm not sure which one is regarded as "the best". Reviews online don't provide much insight so I decided to ask the experts--you all!! ;)

Studying for the LSAT / Beginning Prep for October LSAT
« on: July 18, 2008, 10:29:14 AM »
I am planning on taking the LSAT in October and my goal is 165-170. I have taken only a few practice tests ranging from 152-160. I have bought the LR Bible and just recently signed up for Kaplan Advanced Course. Has anyone taken the Kaplan Advanced course and thought it helped? I've heard bad things about Kaplan on this site and was wondering if there was any positive feedback out there??? My weakness used to be LR, but now it's reading comprehension. The LR Bible really helped me, but they don't make one for reading comprehension. Does anyone have any advice for RC?

Do any of you have advice of how I should go about studying with this much time left? Also, is my target unreasonable considering I got a 152 on a practice test? I seem to be leveling off around 160 with RC dragging me down. Also, any comments about Kaplan sure would help!!
