I just completed my PS today. Would anyone be able to help me review it? If you have completed yours and need a reviewer, we can exchange PS's. Please PM me with your email and I will attach my PS to you. If you reply my email with your PS attached, and I will review it too.
If I want the opportunity to do big law with a US firm overseas (particularly Hong Kong, because it's my hometown), what schools would be best for such employment prospects? I believe a few years of local experience is usually needed, but working in HK for a US firm is one of my goals.
Would a t30 school do it? Does it have to be a "national" reputation school, instead of regional schools? What schools would have this reputation? T30? Tier 1? T14?
Did anyone else feel like they did, in general, better on the Sep2009 LSAT than on the other recent PTs (I did most PTs from PT47 onwards)? I keep thinking I did well. Usually there are some tricky LRs and RCs that make me guess between two answer choices, but I didn't really come across this on test day. Which makes me feel like I did better on the actual test than PTs. But quite a few people are feeling the other way around, and this is making me feel very uneasy. Anyone else felt the same as I?
I think you are overshooting. You can try www.lawschoolnumbers.com to see the stats of admitted/waitlisted/rejected applicants.
Also a good tool: www.lawschoolpredictor.com. It calculates your "index" (basically a score computed from the LSAT and GPA), compares it with the indices of the 25th and 75th percentile applicant, and predicts your chances.
Based on your numbers, loyola is a "weak consider", while cardozo is a "deny".
