Studying for the LSAT / not really working with the English language
« on: February 17, 2006, 09:23:24 PM »
I had a guy in my LSAT prep class and when called on to read passages you couldn’t even understand him. He fumbled words, made up words and even screwed around with entire sentences.
Oddly, once he was done reading he had it all figured out. Smart guy but terrified of the test and school in general.

My question (finally) is, does anyone know how these people ultimately do on the LSATS? He had a grasp but it was like only touch a true grasp.

Poor kid. Curious, does LSAT offer tests in other languages? As PC as the test are, I would imagine?? Then again .. there arent courts in different language. I like that.

 I am convinced that schools look at your work/life experience too. I read on a book written by an Ivy League admissions counselor that they want to make sure their professors are happy and not teaching a bunch of boring students. All that you have accomplished in life you need to make shine. Write addendums and forward them to the law school if you don’t think you made a good enough impression. Persistence is KEY -- but not too pushy of course! A written addendum FedEX'd/UPS or DHL would do nice and on good paper.

Also, a lot of school want people with roots. They are looking for close alums and people that are going to give $$ and attend alum functions … that’s huge.

LSAT horror stories / The in seat pee'r
« on: February 17, 2006, 09:09:55 PM »

I don’t know why … but maybe bc I am a child “in class pee’r bc my neurotic 3rd grade teacher had this insane shake of the head thing – almost Parkinson like – and no one knew when you had permission to go pee EVER so we all sat in class with our legs crossed” ….

Anyone ever heard any stories about someone not being able to hold it while taking the LSAT? I might have even had a nightmare about this.

From what I have been hearing from attorneys in the NE, if you want to practice anywhere other than Florida go to a school anywhere other than Florida. In other words, if your plan is to practice in Fl then Miami all the way! 

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Where do you find the time to study?

I would definitely offer the advice not to study when you are tired or just wake up. You need to give yourself some time to adjust. A great idea is to read a journal like The Wall Street Journal… read a few articles and your brain will be motivated.

Law School Applications / Work/Life v LSAT/GPA

Hi – anyone know any decent/good schools in PA/NY that look at work/life experience and trumps it to LSAT/GPA?  I’m a nontraditional …. !

Thanks Steve. I was hopin a little more ... East. I'm hitting all the PA/NY schools.

Good luck everyone!

 Have you guys heard of any schools where work experience trumps it all? Let me rephrase .. any decent/good school. For non-traditionals, if you will.
