I plan on doing all my apps online, but I'm not sure how to display the heading of my PS. My PS is literally 2-pages with no extra on the bottom of my word processor. I've heard that on every document that is a part of the app, one should put their name and LSAC number on the document. If I do that with my PS, my PS will overflow into a 3rd page, a violation of the 2-page rule. What should I do about it if I can't trim my PS down any? Thanks

Where should I go next fall? / Crappy Numbers, where could I go?
« on: December 29, 2008, 08:01:58 PM »
The situation is that I have a 2.83 Undergraduate GPA and I just scored a 153 on my LSAT due to nerves. Which schools in Washington DC, Virginia, and Maryland could I get into with those numbers? If it helps (which I doubt), I'm Puerto Rican. Thanks for any answers in this matter.

I've been having a skid in my RC performance lately (I went from -4 to -13  >:() and I needed help with this. I'm taking the test in December, but my RC skills must have atrophied a bit because I was so focused on LG due to that being my weak area and LR since that's half the test.

I find that reviewing RC doesn't seem to be worth the time because RC is ALL about timing, so of course if I had more time, I would know where the correct answers are located in the passages. Does anyone have any tips for reviewing incorrect RC answers or should I just continue doing at least 1 RC section daily so that I can re-establish my LSAT reading skills? Thank you in advance for any responses.

Where should I go next fall? / Where should I apply based on my info
« on: November 20, 2008, 06:44:20 PM »
Hi guys, I this forum seems a lot better than TLS, so I wanted to ask a question about my realistic admission chances.

My UGPA is a 2.83. I don't have any addendum worthy "excuses" for my GPA. I basically chose the wrong major and my first year grades pounded my GPA into the ground. If nothing else, I changed my major to Poli Sci and hit nothing but 3.8+ from then on, but I imagine that my upward trend is softer than even Charmin toilet paper.

I'm taking the LSAT in December, but I've been hitting the 155-159 range on average during my PTs, but I understand that I'd realistically hit 5 points lower due to test day nerves and stuff, so I'll assume a 150 worst case. I am Puerto Rican, which makes me a URM.


I have to stay in Washington DC because of personal obligations, so I can only really go to a school commutable by public transportation because I don't have a car. Thanks for any help in advance and please excuse my underwhelming numbers.

LSAT horror stories / I hate my life
« on: October 04, 2008, 04:57:28 PM »
I took the test today and got the crappiest possible test scenario

1) LG
2) LR
3) LR
4) LR
5) RC

I hated the game with the buses. I hope the curve is lenient for this test.

Studying for the LSAT / Which Preptests Should I Get?
« on: September 19, 2008, 02:53:38 PM »
I'm taking the test in December and want to start doing 2 or 3 PTs every week starting mid-October. Which preptests should I get my hands on? I've heard that the test changed drastically (easier LG, harder RC) within the past couple of years and I don't want to waste my time or money practicing on tests that should be in the Smithsonian. Around which test number should I start buying tests? Thanks for any responses.

Personal Statement / Is this a good topic to write about?
« on: September 06, 2008, 09:59:40 PM »
Hi guys, I'm new to this forum and have a question. I've been having trouble coming up with a good PS topic. I'm considering writing about my time as a Substitute Teacher. I would write about the fact that since I subbed at the same high school my whole time there, I spent a lot of my time advising students about the college application process and college life as a whole because I just graduated in 2007. Would that be a good topic to write about. Thanks
