Where should I go next fall? / Re: 2.55/157/URM chances??

By the way,

This was by no means a flame. I just wanted to tell you straight up how difficult it will be with your stats.
That's all
good luck again

I appreciate that, Id rather here the truth then have it sugar coated. I didnt even want to apply to some schools but my parents just said sent them becauase "you never no if dont try". I thought I was gonna do better to better on the LSAT but I totally screwed up one game and it killed my score but I guess every1 thinks they could have done better. I messed up in undergrad, had 3 deaths in my family, my brother got locked up for a  while and I took it pretty hard. For a while I was gonna go overseas and play ball but decided against it to kill myself with law school.

I have been doing some research and added some more school that I will apply to on monday. Im just gonna cast a wide net. Hopefully someone will take a chance and I'll get into a decent school(Rutgers-Camden would nice because I live very close)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Advice for Average Scorers??
« on: September 29, 2007, 11:29:55 PM »
It must be dispiriting to not be able to improve as much as you want, even after all that practice.  It seems you've done LOTS of work, and if it's all been done in the 2.5 month period, I say you might be just going into overkill.

Consider taking a month off or so, and attacking it again. Erase all the answers from your previous sections and try again - trust me, you won't remember everything, there are questions I've retried again with only a month or so in between and I can't seem to remember what I even picked in the first place.  Review the LGB and the LRB -- those are absolute gems.  Try to apply the principles they teach you to the tests again, making sure you do it untimed until you can average, say, in the 160-165 range (or whatever you are aiming for).  If you can score consistently untimed in the 160s and above, start timing yourself -- if you can get the logic down, timing is only a matter of practice.
Best of luck to you.

good advice

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How Are You Dealing With The Nerves/Stress?

Play Halo 3 for 25 straight hours before the test, Halo 3 is far more nerves-inducing than the LSAT ;D

I might buy it on the way back from the test..Something to numb my mind, because I'll prob be redoing the problems in my head for a while.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: "171" on December 2005 (PrepTest 48)
« on: September 28, 2007, 02:14:04 PM »
wow..harsh scale.I finally got 0 wrong on games...Thought they were the easiest so far.

I feel kind of the same way. I took prep test and Im scoring higher then my first score but I dont feel as crisp as I did before. Im just gonna take it and if I feel good keep it and if not cancel and rely on my first score..

I would advise taking it because studying is a whole lot of time and effort. I wouldnt reccomend putting that much on yourself if it isnt neccessary.

You know what? I got a 159, sure I am dissapointed but I also know that its not terrible. its below my average but its still going to get me into law school, and not a horrible one at the hopefully!

160ers be proud of yourselves!

I got a 160 and I was terribly disaapointed. I need at least a 165. But this board makes you feel like anything below 170 is bad. I have learned that 160 even combined with my horrible GPA will get me into school.. So, I'll retake and whatever happens, life goes on.
