For those of you who never had to look that far down the U.S. News list (bastards!), Chapman University is a tier 4 school in Orange County, California.
I've been hearing rumors that Chapman has been desperately trying to raise their place in the rankings and have subsequently been rejecting/waitlisting people with some great stats (especially for an 11 year old tier 4 law school). Anyone else have any news/info/thoughts on this?? Do those people who are waitlisted have a pretty good shot of getting in considering the fact that many people admitted to Chapman will never go there?

I know school rep matter and URM status matters to a degree....but how would this translate into GPA points ...or even lsat points for that matter?? I am asking so I have a better idea of what schools to apply too.

I was thinking about applying to some history grad programs due to the fact that my numbers are not too great, and I think I may want to apply next cycle, but would like to do more than work some crummy job. I can't get any more recs from professors (it was hard enough to get that done for law school...I go to a huge pub university, so it's quite difficult). Is there any way LSDAS would send my letters of rec to other grad programs??

What do you guys think my chances are?? I am retaking the lsat in Feb, and there deadline is June 1, 2006....i am thinking about applying with what i have now because it is pretty late in the cycle...at the same time...maybe i should wait until i get my new lsat score. What do you guys think my chances are with my GPA: 3.05, LSAT: 151, URM status?

I go to a well known top 25 school...have a 3.05 lsdas gpa...I bombed the lsat and got a 151 (i was getting mid 160's in practice...im retaking in february), and I am a URM. I am basically looking for schools that are near major cities, have fairly decent job placement and salray ranges for recent grads.
So far im thinking:
Univ of San Francisco
New England School of Law
New York Law
any other suggestions?

I'm going to retake the LSAT on Feb 4 due to my horrible performance on Dec.3. Nonethless, I'm sending out applications for schools that have deadlines in Feb, though I have no idea if schools that have March deadlines accept the Feb lsat. Schools are closed until after the new year, but I would really like to know if any of you were able to attain this info at some point in the past....thanks!

I don't know about you guys...but by the 5th section, my brain was pretty fried and I ended up spending a bit too much time on the first 3 passages to make sure I was getting the right answers (and it appears so judging by the consensus in the other thread). However, I was left with only about 4 min for the last passage and I made the mistake of trying to skim it then answer the questions...nothing made sense (embryos...p-sperm...wtf). I made educated guesses/choices on the first two....then filled in "D" for the last 5 as the proctor was saying "put your pencils down"...I didnt fill in #27 because I was afraid of being reported or something for working past time. Anyway....I was just wondering...do you guys remember if there were many "D" answers on the last passage?

With a gpa around 3.18-3.2 (top 25 school), and an LSAT score of 169, including the fact that I am an URM (hispanic), do you guys think I would have a shot at the top 14??

I just took the Feb 99 practice test (TM)....and jumped from a (145, 147, 149, 150) 152 on my last test to a 161. I think everything is finally starting to really gel. I know it is very frustrating not to see improvements, but just keep plugging away and doing your homework and taking those prac tests....it will pay off. I plan to bump the pressure up myself and hit the books even harder now that I know reaching my goal of 165 is possible if I keep at it....good luck guys.

Ok....I am taking the TM prep course...and so far on my diags I have gone from: Diag 1: 149, Diag 2: 147, Diag 3: 150, Practice test 1: 152.
I am taking another practice test tomorrow...and one on Friday....I'll see how I do....but I really dont know if it's possible to get into the 160's by Oct 1. My goal is 165+, but if I am not in the 160's thus far, what are the chances I will be consistent enough to get into the 160's on test day??
I am doing relatively well on the LR (usually 7-10 wrong...feel I can improve)...for some reason I just can't stay consistent on the RC (avg about 8 wrong, normally due to time), and the games I can usually get any game right, but it takes me way too long....sometimes I can nail them in 5min..usually it takes me about 13-16min.
Right now...I am studying for about 6-8 hours a day...before I was only getting in about 3-4 hours a day...so hopefully this will help. Anyone else in a similar situation?? What do you guys think is the best plan of action?
