That was an incredibly helpful and informative post! I really appreciate you taking the time to write that out for me. I seem to be okay on the logic games, but for me, I think practicing is going to be huge so I can think quicker. I feel that with such a low UGPA, the only hope for me is to get an awesome LSAT. I think I have a plan in mind and have already set a meeting with a law professor to discuss my options and whether or not this is the right move for me. I want to go into this as prepared as I can be. I never applied myself during college, but I feel Law school would be such a different thing - I know I could be great if only I put the building blocks in place and give it my very best. I know I've got some LOOOOONG years ahead of me, starting with intensive studying for the LSAT, and I really appreciate your added scope.

He needs to have her "served" with papers, wink, and have the ring inside the folded papers.

There's another suggestion... no idea what kind of papers could she could be served with, but it's a start!

I am really not creative when it comes to romance, but I have some friends on another board who are. I hope you don't mind, but I posted your question there. Here are some of the responses:

I like his idea about the karaoke bar!! Or even the PA system! Law is not what I would call romantic, lol, so I am at a loss there. Maybe just respond with what you suggested and say you think his ideas are great too!
Or, I don't know how much work it would, I am sooo not into law. But, could he make up some sort of document and say he needs help with it? Or just give her some premade document thingy that is already made. And add a page, like on page 25 or something, where it is actually hidden in the text in the page? Kinda like your idea, but making it so that it is "in" the book or document, so that she actually has to be reading it seriously, and then kinda do a double take to fiigure out what she just read.... that's all I got.
That's great though!! Maybe he could ask one of her professors to bury the page in one of her assigned readings??

As more posts come through, I will copy them along! Hope you don't mind!!

Hello - I'm a 24 yr old New Yorker who, after about two years in the work force, is looking for a career change. I worked in financial services and truly loved it. I am considering a career as either an Intellectual property lawyer, a securities lawyer, or an Estate planning lawyer, with the latter being my first choice. Is it normal to have such a specific goal right off the bat? I plan to have an open mind as I'm sure I will learn about plenty of other career options and types of law during my studies.

With that question aside, I have another - my UGPA is U.G.L.Y. (2.83 EEEK!!!!!) and I have yet to prep for/take the LSAT. I was an English Rhetoric and Composition major with a Minor in philosophy who generally did pretty well in subjects I was interested, such as core classes and the occasional Yoga/Self Defense class (not lying).  Now that I'm older and (hopefully) more mature, do you think it's possible for a good school to overlook my sheisty UGPA if I can manage at least a 165 on my LSAT??

Also, do you think someone with my educational background will have difficulty absorbing study material and basic concepts for the LSAT?

Looking forward to any responses. Thanks in advance.
