Studying for the LSAT / PowerScore: Phone Tutoring v. Weekend Class

I'm trying to decide between Powerscore's weekend class or the 5-hour phone tutoring package.  Has anyone had experience with either?

I'd suggest you speak with the Dean of Academic Affairs at your law school. Given the time that has elapsed, there could be issues, and the dean would be able to identify, explain and interpret the relevant ABA standard.

Recommendations / Re: When to ask for a LOR?

If you haven't already asked for that letter, may I make a suggestion?  Go ahead and register with LSAC and purchase your LSDAS subscription now.  It's not too early.  I registered this year, and my account expires in 2015.

When using the LSDAS LOR service, you'll have a paper form each recommendation writer will need to attach to his/her letter when he/she sends it to LSAC.  If your boss sends the letter and the form to LSAC, it will be in your LSDAS file when it's time for you to apply.  That will be one less document about which to worry when you're getting together your documents.

I have a couple websites that may be of interest to you.

First, there's a site called "Law School Numbers" that gives self-reported admissions statistics of people applying for law school.  What's particularly interesting is if you go to the "Schools" menu, select a school, and go to the "graphs" tab.  You'll see that while one's GPA and LSAT score tend to correlate with one's admission chances, but high grades and LSATs don't guarantee one will be admitted.

Second, there's the ABA's Official Guide to Law Schools (  If you select the UGPA/LSAT Search option, you can see what your chances are of getting admitted to various law schools.

LSAC has a neat tool for estimating one's chances of getting admitted to a particular school.  It's at

Regarding your age:  If 30 is "old," then I'm ancient.  ;)
