Incoming 1Ls / Re: Lawyer Making Products
« on: September 13, 2012, 02:19:23 PM »
When you purchase the LSAT and apply to law school are you buying extraneous "lawyer making products" too?  Because I did that in 2007 and now, 5 years later, it feels like I downloaded lawyer making software in my body.
???
You mean you changed your outlook since then?

Well, Cooley3L, I didn't sense or feel autocorrect when I was in law school the first time.  That's a recent development.  Now I do, and I think it's great.  I went to the University of Southern California Law School.  Back then, although USC was ranked 17th in the nation, I didn't really want to go law school.  Now I appreciate the achievement more than I did before; and between you and me, Cooley3L,  I more or less "used" USC Law to get to California, and in particular Hollywood, so I could pursue my music career.  I like "'80s Metal", and many of those bands got their start on the Sunset Strip.  And that's what I wanted to do.  Besides, when I was in law school, I was playing guitar a lot; not really focusing on school work.  And I was depressed.  In fact, I went to a shrink in Los Angeles and she diagnosed me with depression.  So, that factored into it as well.

Now, I am no longer depressed and I want to go back to law school and focus on school work.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: In the race for LSAT success...again

Cooley3L, thanks.  I bet I could get a higher score on the LSAT than a 166.  For example, a 170.  If that's even possible to do without cheating.  But I am satisfied with my 166.  In fact, I have been thinking about giving myself the nickname "166." Today I'm going to contact some law schools to get back in.

Yeah, kinda.  It's like that now I have auto-correct: I sense or feel when I am wrong and I automatically correct myself.  It's great!

When I was in college, I smoked pot.  The first time was in Hawai'i--atUH-Manoa--in a dormitory.  The second was at a house in Maine.  I don't know if I was written up or not.  But I did that and then got into The University of Southern Californa Law.

Studying for the LSAT / I cancelled my first LSAT
« on: September 11, 2012, 02:51:38 PM »
I took the LSAT twice in 2005.  The first time around I cancelled it.  I took it at Boston University.  The reason I cancelled it was, if I remember correctly, I heard a noise in the rafters and it distracted me.  I cancelled it afterwards, just in case.  Then I retook the LSAT in October 2005 in Stony Brook, Mass, and I scored a 166.  That's 93-94 percentile which means I did better than 93-94% of LSAT test takers.  That's like if everybody who uses LawSchoolDiscussion.org took the LSAT, then I scored better than 93-94% of people on LawSchoolDiscussion.org.

But what I want to know is what score I did get, or would have gotten, on my first LSAT.

I'm am thinking about trying to get back into 'SC Law.  It hasn't even been 5 years and a big reason I dropped out is because I was depressed.  Before I dropped out, I went to a shrink in Los Angeles and she diagnosed me with depression.  Fortunately, I survived it and I am no longer depressed.  Actaully, I feel quite good now and better as the days go by.

Without thinking about it much, if I were in your shoes then I'd apply to Washington University in St. Louis.

Is The Red Cross directed by a bunch of blood sucking vampires or by mosquitos?  LOL!
