Studying for the LSAT / Is this weird???
« on: September 09, 2006, 10:58:09 PM »
I took 3 weeks off from studying. I come back and take my first test and now im much faster finishing sections(LR and RC) with 5 minutes to spare where i used to have no time to spare.  I scored a 164 on Prep Test 40 and felt a little rusty on games. Not my highest but im still surprised.

Why would i get faster after taking time off??? prob a fluke???

Studying for the LSAT / Mental Fatigue during Preptest
« on: August 10, 2006, 12:47:29 PM »
in order to finish LR i have to focus and go so much faster than i normally would read that i feel mentally tired. Does this happen to a lot of people and how do you deal with it?? I think this is the reason my preptest scores might not reach 170.

Law School Applications / When to apply...
« on: August 03, 2006, 12:15:48 AM »
Im taking the Sept 30 LSAT. And probably wont get scores back until late October. I think if i do well i can bring my gpa back over three after a very sub-par marking period last year.  I was wondering when should I apply if I want to make sure they see my updated gpa????? How long does between the school recieving your app and them deeming it complete.

I was thinking about sending it right at or before Thanksgiving, or should i just wait untill mid December???Is December too late???

If you address diversity in your Personal Statement should you do it again in a Diversity Statement.

Law School Applications / LOR question...
« on: July 27, 2006, 06:04:18 PM »
One of my LOR is from a very influential economist that was a visiting lecturer at my school. But im concerned that adcomms might not know of his reputation  because they might not be familiar with econ.  Well i guess the question is do adcomms have any idea about your Reccommendor's qualifications and do they care.

I can see myself at school opening an acceptance and just breaking into dance, probably the thriller dance for a good five minutes. I know some people play it off like they expect to get in but i wouldn't be able to.

Law School Applications / When to send applications...
« on: July 15, 2006, 11:33:30 PM »
I was wondering when I should send my applications. I have a 2.8 now but I want to finish up another semester with a high gpa to show adcomms that im capable and back on track. Im an urm prepping in the 165 -168 range and was wondering if before Jan 1. was too late. Or maybe I should split them like 12 before November and the rest late December. Will applying late December after 1st semester grades really kill me. My last marking period sucked for so many reasons and I just wanna show that im back.
