Studying for the LSAT / Re: Just got my score.. Looking for advice

This is a very respectable increase. I'm curious though - did you prep the first time?

For the 145? Not seriously. I did a handful of practice tests but really had no I idea what I was getting myself into. It was straight out of "Legally Blonde": "Do you think one day she woke up one morning and said 'I think I'll go to law school?'" ... Then I got serious about it.

Is there a deviation from typical professional formats to use for law schools? Reverse chron order with academics first?

Also...should I include my LSAC number on it? Don't have a copy of Ivey's book anymore and can't remember her advice, or whether she's even legit/valid.

in for the future comments, because this is gonna be good.

by the way, OP, you are, oh, what we may call in law school, a "gunner". You're actually not that much smarter than everyone else, and you probably don't actually get it, but you think you do, and everyone is already laughing at your ego. If you did get it, you wouldn't think you're that smart. Oh, the IRONY!

First of all, if you want to be a lawyer, don't go to a law school in Puerto Rico.

Second, you can definitely hope for a significant increase. In June of 2005 I got a 145; In October, three months later, I got a 154. I just took the test again in September and got a 156.

I like using the logic bibles (there are several.) I focused on weak types of questions, and focused on each type of section at a time. Learn what you suck at. Then get good at it.

It's definitely possible.

So clearly this isn't done alphabetically at all. WTH, LSAC?

could be by email address. honestly, I think it's random though.

I'm guessing maybe its by your LSAC number?

this could be it...anyways, we'll all have our scores within the next 2 hours. LSAC apparently told powerscore (announced on twitter) that it should only take 4-5 hours to get em all out.

I'm in WA, no score, and LSAC has failed...actually, just the login seems to be failing, the whole site was down for awhile.

Losing. My. Mind.
