Personal Statement / Re: A request for Personal Statement critiquers

Sure. Thanks for the offer.

I'm still working on it.

IMO, this is possibly the worst part of the whole application process. But it's finally coming together.

I'm great at writing things like this, for OTHER people... not so great at doing it, for myself. But I think mine is coming together.  Finally got a copy of my college transcript this week (I graduated 20 years ago) and was more than a little surprised... in a Not Good Way. Clarified a lot of where I've been, where I'm going, WHY I'm going... like that.   Looking at that piece of paper, it was like looking at the record of a completely different person.  Crazy.

My buddy and I talked about this at the bar exam. There was only 1 restaurant with in like 2 miles, so people stood inline forever, We are thinking of going in feb set up a taco cart, sell beer after the end of second day, have pencils, asprin, sodas, wahetever. Pay off our student loans since you know us T2 grads donít ever get jobs as lawyers

That's hysterical. You should totally do that.

I think it took me about 3 weeks... but I was working with the LGB at the same time.  I loved those books.

LOL - I seriously feel for them. I have 2 friends who are freaking out about coming into the test after fasting.

I don't know if I can be of as much help as these other guys, but I'm in. Mind you, I just barely started working on my PS
(with job & kids, I had to focus on the LSAT first, the PS second, etc)...

ROCK IT, you guys!!!!!  :)

Recommendations / "Older" student LOR Question
« on: September 28, 2009, 02:12:27 PM »
So, I've been out of school for 23 years and am trying to figure out the LOR question.

Of all the professors I had in school (I majored in Gov, minored in theatre), the only one
with whom I'm still in contact is the head of our theatre department. I think he'd give me a great
recommendation (I was a terrific student and have had a very successful acting/producing career),
but I'm not sure whether an LOR from a theatre prof. would matter, to a law school admissions person!

As an actress, I don't really have one particular 'boss' so that's out... however, I have worked as an elected
official of my union for the past 10 years and the President of the union will write one of my LORs (I've served
on numerous contract negotiating committees, etc so this LOR will be pertinent.)

Question is... where else do I turn?

I agree with Compaq on this one:  thought the games were pretty straightforward (especially the first two) and was feeling fine... but 3 took a full 8 minutes and 4 was just a time suck, because of the questions. Wound up guess-bubbling the last 2 Q's.... grrrrr.

Well, mine was RC/LR/LR/LR/LG

LG was super easy for me.

My second LR (section 3) was what really got me. I wasn't sure if it was super hard or if I was just out of it by Section 3 already and needed my break.

Section 2 (the first LR) was hard but not that bad, I felt a little off but finished it. Section 4 (third LR) was super easy. I only hope that wasn't the experimental section.

I really have no clue how well I did. RC was so-so. Not as good as I wanted but I finished pretty much every question.

Boy was I out of it when it came to the writing section. I kind of completed it well but not as good as I hoped to. Just hope it doesn't come down to that for deciding what schools I get into.

I had almost exactly the same experience. Ran out of time on the last LG and guess-bubbled the last two, but otherwise felt strong. The writing section, however... I had a blast. Decided to call the Association "BAAA" and kept hearing the sound of sheep, braying in my head the whole time. Crazy.
