General Off-Topic Board / The Ultimate John Kerry AD

Since its apparent that everyone on this site is so gung-ho for Bush, I thought it would be nice to show some props for Kerry:

Law School Admissions / Is the new curve really THAT bad?
« on: October 25, 2004, 11:35:19 AM »
I am really curious about the curve for the Oct 2004 LSAT. It seems like everyone thinks that it's hurting them but by how much? How much higher would your score be if the curve was like previous years? Do you think law schools will consider this curve when reviewing our applications or will they ONLY look at the LSAT score by itself?

I was waitlisted at two schools last year and wasn't accepted in either one at the very end. I work in a top 100 law firm and doing an internship at the same time with an international lobbying group. Additionally, I have update LORs and a new one that is probably better than one of the others. My LSAT went up 8 points but it is still below the 25% of both schools (the average). I know that my chances of getting in may improve slightly, but I wanted to know if anyone has gotten into a school they were waitlisted at the previous year (even if its someone else you know).

Decided to set up an AA site for those of us who are addicted to LSD (Law School Discussion for you newbies). I have been off of LSD for a few days and have stopped twitching LOL. Just checking to see all the other law school losers out there!

Law School Admissions / Paralegal Jobs......Part II
« on: October 05, 2004, 09:56:19 AM »
I asked about this in early summer, but I was living in a small town in west Texas at the time. Now that I moved to DC and finished with the LSAT, I am going to start looking for a paralegal type job. I know that a job of this type will not set me apart from other law applicants, but I am really interested in the work and I actually just want a job that pays well until next year. Any suggestions? I realize that DC has a plethoria of law firms, but none are really hiring paralegals.....well not the kind that I qualify for. Each ad for a paralegal requires "2-3 years experience," "students from a top tier university," or "a minimum two year commitment." Where are all these temp positions everyone on these boards are getting. I have ZERO contacts in this area so all I have is a computer, a newspaper, and a prayer. Whatever y'all suggest will be much appreciated. I am at an internship currently, but I do not have fixed hours so I can work whenever. Oh and any suggestions on a cover letter? The worse part of this whole process is the freaking cover letter; I am drawing a blank on the approach.

Law School Admissions / LSACD.....WTF!?!?!
« on: October 04, 2004, 05:13:14 PM »
I ordered the stupid CD September 4th. I checked the status of it two weeks ago and it said backordered. Now I check it and it said the checkout was completed Sept 4th. Anyone else get the LSACD yet?

....and I walked past Georgetown Law School. Just when I was feeling pretty good about the LSAT tomorrow suddenly fate female dog slapped me across the face. Why is the world mocking me? I was simply seeing how far and where my testing center was via to the Metro, and there was the school.....a shining beacon of ridicule. Anyways, good luck to everyone else out there!

Law School Admissions / How should I interpret this score?
« on: September 25, 2004, 01:58:47 PM »
OK well I have been stressing out over the upcoming LSAT (if you couldn't tell from my previous posters) and took a diagnoistic test this morning. Well I scored a 157 up from a 150 but there were some "odd circumstances" surrounding this score, so I don't know how I should interpret this score:

A. I took the Oct 2003 LSAT last year and this diagnostic test was also the OCT 2003 LSAT.

B. When I came to the test, I was kinda stressed out because I forgot my Diagnostic Test book at home and was provided a new one by PR. Unfortunetly, I was not allowed to write in the book (and let me tell you, doing games on a seperate sheet and keeping track of the answers was a female dog).

C. The conditions of the test were bad as well. Cell phones going off and the guy next to me busted out with a Peanut Butter sandwhich in the middle of the first section.

Should I consider this score as legitimate? I did not remember any of the games or argument questions at all. I did recognize the topics on the RC section, but only the topics and not the questions. Could I have subliminally known all these questions and would therefore have a little "extra" advantage? It was a whole year since the previous LSAT and I can barely remember where I park my car let alone a 100 question test. Should I consider the crappy circumstances of the test to possibly discount this advantage? Sorry if it sounds like I am making something larger than it should be, but its crunch time and I need to decide if I should hold off until Dec or push for Oct. I know, I should just simply take another test that I have definetly not seen before, but I can't really do that until tomorrow or later. If this score is legit, then THANK YOU to everyone who has helped and to those that recommended the RC Bible!

Law School Admissions / October or December: can a score change by then?
« on: September 24, 2004, 07:44:33 PM »
I am sure most of y'all are sick of this topic of conversation (especially from me), but I would really like some advice given my circumstance. I am taking the Princeton Review 5 week course but my score is not moving up (actually down). Now I have been told by a lot of people (including the Dean of Admissions at one law school), that I should postpone the LSAT in October and take it in December if I don't think I will preform signifigantly better. Well I am not improving and the test is next week. If I can't improve by now, what else can I do that will help me in December? I mean, if I worked my ass off preparing for the LSAT for 5 straight weeks, what is 2 months going to do? I understand the test better and can conceive a strategy, but I cannot grasp that strategy while taking the LSAT. I realize that this is the whole purpose of what the LSAT is supposed to test and how it weeds out crappy students, but the whole standardized test deal just frustrates me. Anyone out there who held off on an LSAT and actually did better on the next one?
