Studying for the LSAT / Re: College Sophomore Studying for LSAT
« on: January 09, 2012, 01:17:55 AM »
I agree with Jeffort. The Princeton book definitely is not good. I studied independently and started about 2 months before the test. I used the Powerscore Bibles and LSAC's 10 Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests series (as well as The Next 10). As for how early to study, if you do a class, I would wait until closer to the test, but if you're independent, I can't say. Everyone studies differently independently. I would probably wait until closer to the test, but it's ultimately up to you.

Law School Applications / Complete Date Changed
« on: January 08, 2012, 04:17:03 AM »
Is it typical for the law school to change the complete date in the status checker? I went complete in late September. The date was changed to mid-December, and then changed again recently to Jan. 6. It's only happened with one school so I'm not really sure why or what it means. I haven't sent any further information since initially going complete.

Where should I go next fall? / Is There A Point?

Is there even a point in going to a T3 or T4 school? I see people and have friends that are applying to them but I also keep seeing many ex-law students saying the market sucks and that firms only really hire from T1 and sometimes T2 schools.

I understand that law isn't all exciting trials and what not, but I am interested in it. I also understand that it is a big monetary commitment and I know I will probably have to work in public interest for a while so I can get some help repaying loans (I live in a State that offers such programs). So, I will take your advice as closely as possible...thanks for the help! :)

Thank you very much for that! Are there resources for tips on writing a personal statement? Topics I should focus on? I go to a religious college and work in homecare, never really had to write one before, haha. I guess I will search around law firms in the area, but I doubt anyone is hiring for evening hours.

Hello all, so I am in kind of a complicated situation and I'm not sure what to do.

I am entering my Junior year in my undergraduate program, which is a B.A. in Pastoral Studies at a small private university in Minneapolis. I have prayed and decided to attend law school (I know not all here are Christian, so please don't criticize or ridicule how I came to the decision). Yes, I do wish to practice law, I am not going just to go. The problem is that since I'm at a small religious university there is no pre-law advisor. I'm not really sure what to do. Are there jobs I could look for to help me gain experience in the field and prepare me for law school? Is there a timeline I should follow? I'm just completely lost on the process but I REALLY want to go so any help would be great!
