Studying for the LSAT / Re: When will we recieve our scores???????
« on: October 24, 2008, 08:57:45 AM »
Does anyone know if LSAC sends scores out on Saturday or will we have to wait until the next business day? I'm beginning to think that we won't receive them today b/c of the update boxes still being blank. Any thoughts?

32
Can you read mine? If so, can you give me your email address? I just finihsed first draft

33
want to exchange? My first draft is ready. Ninja1, will you read it too? I need all the help I can get. I feel like is doesn't finish strong and want to make sure it's interesting.

34
My first prep was a 153 and then I got a 151. I studied the LR Bible and looked over NOVA's book for games and now I'm up to upper 150's and lower 160s consistently. However, I'm not sure how to improve past this..kind of hit a wall.

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?

I'm with Mori, please elaborate! That's great you were able to raise it that high, especially on your own. Its great to hear how other people improved b/c it gives you new ideas or reminds you of something your not currently doing. If reached a point where I've went from 152's to consistently scoring 158-160, but I can't get higher than that. I guess I've hit a wall where I have used all my study materials and now I'm just going to have to start taking test after test.

I'm going through the Nova book now and it's okay. I like it for RC, but find that Powerscore bibles are extremely better in regards to the other two sections. RC is just a pain in my neck and the one i have focused on the least. I'm hoping that if I put as much time in on this section like I have the other two then I'll be okay....but i find this section exhausting!!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: One Year of Prep/Where should I start?
« on: July 21, 2008, 01:01:25 PM »
I just got started and found the SuperPrep to be very helpful. It has 3 practice tests and gives detailed explanations regarding your results. The Powerscore Bibles are awesome as well. I started cold with the Superprep and quickly realized that LR was my worst and games my best. I then got the PR Bible and my scores improved dramatically...6-10 points just by improving LR. I am now on another book for RC.

Also, you may want to consider a prep course. Since you have a lot of time on your hands you may not need it, but if you have the extra $1200 it would probably be worth it.

That site asks that you put in the test #. How do you know the test # for the test you took? The practice tests I have just give me the date.
