get your applications, ready, study HARD, and of course focus on not getting so nervous (I know that screwed me up)

Law School Admissions / Non ABA Approved school
« on: June 14, 2009, 09:13:31 PM »
I'm thinking of applying to UC, Irvine. How long does it take for a school  to become aba-approved? Or how exactly does the process work.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: experimental
« on: June 08, 2009, 10:24:24 PM »
no way, the experimental WAS IN the first 3 sections and I know this because my experimental had a repeat problem from a previous test the one about some brain fracture in Mozart's brain and it had a double your pleasure. LSAT did not change nothing...still the same pain in the butt as before. I too found the novelist pretty difficult I think I missed at least two on just that one

Law School Admissions / Re: Should I drop econ?
« on: May 07, 2009, 01:51:06 PM »

Only marginally.

Drop the second major if you're sure you want to do law. GPA and LSAT are 90% of the process. Everything else is marginal at best (unless you're URM, in which case numbers don't really matter).

that is such bull...I don't know where you are getting this crap from, numbers do matter for everyone, thats what law schools' admission are all about. I don't think its fair that some with a 3.9 and a 150(something) should get rejected at a top school but another person with a 2.7(or something) with a 170 gets accepted. Look the whole acceptance process is flawed for everyone one, but its the best they can do. this is beyond the scope of the OP question but poo like this pisses me off...you need to understand before you make an opinion. Also maybe you should take a look at the statistical breakdown of LSAT score by race and gender, it might enlighten you.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: SEARCHING FOR LSAT STUDY PARTNER

i'm retaking the LSAT in June and live in Los Angeles, I'll be down to studying with you, actually my friend and I will be studying together. I took the TM course as well and have the powerscore book. PM me you are in the Los Angeles  area

The thing about this first diagnostic test is that I find it tricky, at least for me. The Diagnostic was at 6pm, when you are tired and just off from work, so of course I was going to score awful. I was hungry and not expecting to take a test the first day. So although it is helpful to some extent the environment and conditions are not really ideal for test taking--I found this a bit tricky on the part of testmasters.

But the course in general was great and other Diagnostics were in the mornings, I just don't get why the 1st one wasn't in the morning as well.

I'm sure this has been answered before, but I can not seem to find the link:

I would eventually like to go into teaching/be a law professor. I wanted to know what schools are best for this?

Also, with my LSAT and GPA handy, I've started to think about what schools I might want to attend. I don't have a dream school, I just want to go to a great school that is not pretentious. And since I am a city girl, I would rather stay in California, New York,Washington, maybe Virginia( I know its not a big city).

So my second question is this, how do I go about picking the best school for me, what qualities should I be looking for (except numbers, I have those)

Thanks
