Personal Statement / religion
« on: December 19, 2005, 11:54:37 AM »
What do people think about talking about religion in your ps? I converted to Judaism; this has been extremely significant in my life and I think I could write a very strong PS it. Part of me wonders whether or not it's an appropriate topic, though. Thoughts?

Studying for the LSAT / sabbath test, scales, and worries
« on: December 12, 2005, 06:36:59 PM »
I was looking at the powerscore scale chart (http://www.powerscore.com/lsat/help/correct_targeted.htm) and the scales have clearly gotten tougher over time (although i realize they take difficulty into account). I heard that the sabbath tests were just old february tests. I guess I am hoping that this test might be from a time when the scale was "easier"...or would they rescale it? Is it just a myth that they reuse feb tests for the sabbath tests? Anyway, I know none of this really matters I am just  up in the air about cancelling. I hadn't thought about it for days, thinking I would just get this score, apply where I can and retake in Feb because a few schools I am looking at take your higher school - I think these are schools for which applying late wouldn't rule me out completely. But now I am afraid I got a 150 or below! This would be 13-17 points below my practice results - does it seem crazy to go down that much? any advice? anyway thanks for reading this.

Studying for the LSAT / advice welcome!!! please!

Just got home from taking the Monday LSAT and I am *so* discouraged. I had been getting 163-167 on my practice tests, and I put so much effort into geting my logic games score into the respectable range. I can easily imagine having gotten into the low 150s today. The first section, LR, really threw me for a loop and shook my confidence for the rest of the test (I usually have minimal difficulty in LR).  I'm thinking about cancelling my score, but I feel as though I did about everything I could (during my practice tests I was only missing 2 - 4 in LR and less than that in RC, logic games killed me at first but my score improved over time) and so I am not sure what would be different in Feb., except being less (or maybe more?) nervous. And it seems like Feb would be too late to make it in anywhere this year. I'll be graduating in May with a masters in social work and I guess I could work in the field (although this does not appeal to me) and apply/reapply with a hopefully better score, but I was hoping to avoid that, and I'm not sure what difference it would make. I thought NYLS was going to be a safety, now I am hoping against hope that I have a shot there (any ideas? 3.4, great recs, good ECs (but will they care?). Anyway, advice would surely be appreciated!! I hope everyone else's test went exactly as they had hoped. -t
