Should I talk about the suspension in an adendum or on my personal statement?

And I thought I should mention that is my lsdas gpa because ive retaken the classes I did poorly in and recieved A's in all but one of them. And my school averages the two scores so my ugpa and lsdas gpa should be almost the exact same.

Law School Applications / Undergrad suspension
« on: August 18, 2011, 09:04:28 AM »
So does being suspended from an undergrad school for a semester affect your chances at getting into a law school. I did terrible my freshman year as a bio major. I enrolled and took three classes in another college and got a 4.0 then transferred bacl to the school I was suspended from. as of right now I have a 3.01 gpa and project it it to around 3.3 when I graduate. My lsat should be around 155-157 as that is about what all my preptests have been lately. Does the suspension hinder my acceptance?

Studying for the LSAT / Timed/untimed tests

Does anyone else do better on the lsat preptests when you are timed rather than untimed. Cause I do for some reason. I think it may be because when im timed I dont waste time lingering about a question too deeply and just go with my gut decision. Seems to make me score 5 points better when im taking a timed preptest. Weird but that just goes to show that you shouldnt always second guess yourself, but to be confident in your answer choices.

Law School Applications / scholarships
« on: August 14, 2011, 05:40:44 PM »
I am trying to figure out the basis on which scholarships are given out at law schools. Is it higher than average lsat and gpa, or just random, or what. It could definately influence my choice of colleges that I apply to by knowing how the scholarships are delegated. Anyone have a clue?

I def. do not want to be a cop of any kind. I chose CJ because its interesting, and not a difficult major whatsoever. In fact its rather laughable how easy it is. I started out as a bio major so it was a big change. Before going to the "arts" area of the campus, I had never even heard of the word "extra credit" before. Now its like, you got a hundred on your exam, here are 20 bonus points for doing so well... lol.

No that is not my major. Just the username I chose. My major is criminal justice.

Wow. I just took my second timed preptest. I scored a 157. I was not expecting that at all. I have only been studying for about an hour a day due to my extremely busy schedule. I was expecting about a 150 to 152 at the best. What's really crazy is that I lost total concentration because we had storms and lost power in my house, so I had no light to diagram the last game. So on the last 6 to 7 questions on the last section (which was logic games), I just guessed "D" on all the way down. Only got one of them right. I probably would have done two or three points better if I was able to work through the last game.

LSAT horror stories / lsat study tips
« on: August 05, 2011, 10:23:23 PM »
So I am beginning my journey of studying for the lsat. I took a "Diagnostic" test so I would know where I stood and ended up scoring a 149. Since then I have not taken any full tests, but rather have been focusing on the individual sections of the lsat. I would like to get my lsat score to a 160. No need for me to shoot higher because the average lsat score at the school I wish to attend (University of Oklahoma) is a 158. My ugpa will be right at the average as well. I guess what im asking for is practical tips and approaches that I can utilize in order to impove my score. For the couple of weeks after my diagnostic, I have focused mainly on the LR section of the lsat simply because that section makes up 50% of the test. I have been using a blueprint book that has 10 preptests in it, some of which are completely ancient (late 90's), and some of which are pretty recent (06-07) anyways,  It seems like I always end up missing right at ten questions on every LR section I do, and unfortunately there is no real evident trend in the types of questions that I answer incorrectly. :( If I had to guess, I would say the "must be true" questions are the toughest question types for me. Also many of the strengthen/weaken questions are difficult and time consuming. I have about 10 months before I have to take the lsat so time is not an issue. Any Ideas? Help Please!!!
