Studying for the LSAT / So LSAC has just placed a hold on my LSAT
« on: December 19, 2006, 11:34:11 AM »
I got a letter and email from them saying I forgot to sign my answer booklet or something, and now i have to send something back to them signed. Will this affect getting my score on time, or anything else? Im still no sure how i forgot to sign something, i did everything the proctor told us to, at the moment she told us to.

I scrapped a ton of it and went with a different theme that I felt was more genuine and less bs sounding.  If anyone wants to read it and instead of checking for grammar, just tell me as a whole what you thought, that would be amazing.

General Off-Topic Board / Do lawyers tend to smoke the green?

Just curious how much of the attorney force in the country smokes the wacky tabbacky?  Is it generally an accepted practice as a lawyer?

One of my friend's told me his aunt is the director of law admissions at a top 25 school, and he is gonna ask her to help me out. Would anything like that actually help me?

General Off-Topic Board / Is it wierd to be an adult and listen to rap?
« on: December 14, 2006, 04:59:29 PM »
Right now I am 21 and even though I love all kinds of music, I am particularly enjoying of rap.  I will probably listen to it clear through adult hood. Is that wierd? I can't really imagine my dad or mom listening to rap.

In most of my classes, there is no grade inflation or curves, what you get on your tests is what your grade is. However, in this class i took this semester, i ended with an 83 average, yet the professor told me I will be receiving an A- if I choose not to take the optional final tommorow. If i take his final and get at least a 95, i will get an A. Pretty funny really, although I hope the law schools who read my transcripts don't know my school inflates.

General Off-Topic Board / How come adderoll makes me feel all spaced out?
« on: December 14, 2006, 03:32:41 PM »
First of all I have ADHD and I get these through a prescription.  Ok, i took one XR pill to help me write this long essay, but i don't really feel any more focused now, just kind of cracked out feeling. I have been sitting here for like 30 minutes not working.  Any ideas?

General Off-Topic Board / My friend was just raped
« on: December 14, 2006, 01:52:04 AM »
My friend was at a girl's house we both know, and apparantly another girl that we know ran in crying why he was there, saying that 2 guys from our school's sport team tied her to a table and raped her. He doesn't know if she will go to the cops. 

Is this a good idea at all? Basically in no part of it mention why you want to be a lawyer or go to law school, just go off on a completely different tangent. Like in my personal statement, I was talking about how I was mugged my 2 weeks of college and how it changed me. What i really want to do is go into great details about the whole event and talk about how it hardned my personality among other things.  Also, i was out of school for about a week, and rushing to get all my work caught up forever impacted my work ethic and taught me an entirely new way to study and work. If i soley talk about this instead of talking about how that event inspired me to become a prosecutor or something, would that be a good idea? Im just a little worried about sending an essay to law schools and not even mentioning anything pertaining to attending law school or being a lawyer.
