I plan on starting in January. I am applying to STCL. Ok it's a 4th tier, but I don't plan on being unemployed either. I plan on being self-employed. That is the whole reason I am going to law school. All I need to do is pass the bar. So mesirow your contention that All or Most schools that start in January are "Bad" is wrong. Bad for whom? Not bad for me. Since I don't want to work in a firm anyway I really don't care what the employment rate is for my school of choice. What diff. does it make if my JD has Harvard or STCL on it? Either way it will be hanging in a small office somewhere and the clients I can attract probably won't care one way or the other as long as I do a good job with their case. Just wanted to throw in that everything is a matter of prospective. Even if I got into Harvard (highly unlikely) I would go to STCL because I want to start sooner, it's cheaper, and I probably could not convince my wife to move up north.

Ditto on the South Texas College of Law. I could go to Houston this weekend if I knew what room the test was in. Is the campus open on weekends? Is there anyway to find out what room it will be in? If mindgap or tuaustin find out PLEASE let me know!

I too have kept a spreadsheet since Feb. I keep track of every section I study broken down by time and # of sections. Also have all of my practice score's. I definately has helped my focus on what I need to work on. Although it really just comes down to the games. Damn them.

I WENT FROM A 155 ON MY FIRST PRACTICE (3 MOS. AGO) TO A 168 (HIGHEST PRACICE YET) You need a strategy. I never had any problems with the RC either so I pretty much just do the same on that. I used the Bible for games and have increased from being lucky to get 1 game done to getting 3 done and not missing too many. On the LR I used the strategies from the Kaplan book it seems to work well. Sit down with some books and get a strategy first BEFORE you just keep taking tests. If you keep doing what you are doing you will keep getting what you get. The LSAT is definately a test you can learn to a certain point ( I don't think I will ever get a 180 b/c I cannot finish the games in enough time and 2or 3 LR and 2or 3 RC will throw me off every time.You definately can improve from the 150's though with a strategy. By the way I AM not very smart 2.01 GPA in Agriculture. But man I had a great time in college!
