To update this post. I actually visited Suffolk this past fourth of july and I was very impressed. They had a really nice facility and their library was huge with tons of books and space to study. I talked to a relative of mine who's a lawyer in Massachusetts, (not boston) who works with several Suffolk graduates who all liked the school very much.
I also happened to visit Brooklyn law today. I didn't sense much of a difference between the two schools other than the obvious difference in selectivity between the two schools. I have to say that I will end up going to what ever school gives me the most money because it doesn't seem like jobs are to plentiful out of any school unless its a top 10.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Help with studying

I would suggest starting in early August taking as many practice tests before the exam as possible. The most important thing is to also review what you got wrong. I even use to clip out the questions I got wrong from the test because its usually the same type of questions you get wrong. Mastering your weaknesses is the key to this test.
Good luck in October.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: testmasters vs powerscore HELP!!

I took testmasters course and as I agree with the instructor bit, it is also a big factor on how hard you will be able to work. I took the june lsat so the tail end of the testmasters course was during my finals week in college. That impinged on my study habits for sure. Having said that, I do believe the course was worth every dollar, especially if any scholarship money can be squeezed out.
Hope that helps.

I had about a 140 1st time and with a lot of hard work I pulled off a 157 on my real LSAT.

Denials / Re: Letters in Response to Rejection Letters

How about trying something like this..

Dear Admission Committee,

Unfortunately at the this time I am unable to accept your rejection to [insert school here]. Despite my so-called apparent under qualified LSAT score and GPA, I will be attending [insert school] in the fall. Along with this letter you will find my first year deposit. I look forward to being a [insert school mascot] next fall.

The one that almost got away.

I just got my LSAT back with a 157 and I have a 3.2 GPA. Some of my top choices include Suffolk Law and New York Law School. I've heard a lot about NYLS but not much about Suffolk other than that its in Boston. Anybody have any insight on the school?

Suffolk / Personal Statement

Suffolk Law is one my top choices for law school so I would like to write a very well thought out personal statement. I would appreciate any advice from current or past students with some insight on what the school looks for in personal statements. Thanks..

Studying for the LSAT / Awaiting LSAT Scores

I personally am getting so anxious about getting the results of the LSAT. I think I did well on it but the suspense is killing me. Does anyone have any predictions of when the scores will be sent. I think the LSAC website said they are supposed to come in on the 29th.. but apparently they always come in earlier?

What I did my summer going into the junior year was buy LSAT Logic Games for dummies( its like 25 bucks well worth it) And I gradually got through the book through out the summer. It helped me get a lead on the very difficult logic games.
Good luck. And remember DO NOT start getting stressed out about the LSAT yet. Enjoy the summer!
