My question for the OP is have you taken a sample test yet and when are you taking the actual LSAT?  (if you're already at a 160 or above and shooting for above 170, the following probably doesn't apply)

I'm currently enrolled in a class with a #of ESL students and they are having success with the methods we have been given. ie.. identifying the key words and paying more attention to purpose and structure as opposed to specific passage details. (for most of the science passages, I may as well be an ESL myself!)

If you are not taking the upcoming December LSAT, perhaps a class would be helpful for you as well.  It's helped me!!

Well here it goes....

I'm 40 and taking the LSAT in December.  I am currently a pharma rep but looking to do what I should have done 18 yrs ago, LAW SCHOOL. I live in CA and am looking at attending a CBE approved school as opposed to ABA, part time, evenings.  In CA, these CBE schools are a step above the online degree but don't require "the baby bar" after year one. I will be able to sit for the CA Bar upon completion and once that's passed, I'm on my own.

I too have a family, but no debt. Well, law school debt soon enough, but at a MUCH LOWERE COST!  Anyway, I have NO ambitions of practicing in a big firm.  I just want my own small practice, maybe even bite the bullet and look into working for the D.A. after school.  Money just hasn't bought me happiness. 

My question is, why all the hype on school tiers?  The 2 schools I'm looking at in Los Angeles actually have some prestigous, working alumni as well.  Large firms, sitting judges.. etc. Is it REALLY the be all end all?  I just want to practice law on my own terms. Any horror stories out there on this approach?

Am I nuts or what????
