LSAT horror stories / Re: I cancelled my first LSAT

What noise did you hear? It seems odd that you cancelled your LSAT only for that. Anyway, why not let bygones be bygones, you got a high score the second time.

Have you managed to revise it to a final state? I think your letter is quite good, you managed to explain how a law career will suit you well.

A high UGPA generally indicates hard work and intelligence, while a high LSAT and low UGPA might indicate intelligence and laziness or poor planning, lack of commitment, maturity issues, etc.
Yeah, that's how I see it. You can be extra smart but very lazy or you can work very very hard and still not be able to score high on tests. 

Law School Applications / Re: Study Abroad factored in LSAC GPA?

The grading system is different in all countries. Some use letters, some use numbers. Some use numbers from 1 to 10, others use numbers from 1 to 30. It may get pretty difficult to transfer grades from any country.

I don't know what to say, you certainly have a colorful past. From what I've heard, if you can demonstrate the state that you have really changed you might have a chance so don't give up just yet.

I know law school is tough and it may suck out the life out of you but it doesn't mean I could never become a successful lawyer.

Why don't you study for the LSAT anyway? You might learn a thing or two and, if for some reason, you'll be required to take it you'll be prepared.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: talk to me...

EarlCat got directly to the point: a weekend course is nothing, you should study harder and take up a "real" prep course. Why didn't you transfer the grades? Wouldn't that help you a lot ?

I have always been a "study by myself" person. Some joke around and tell I'm slow but it's not because of that, it's because I concentrate better when I'm not distracted by others.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Formal Logic Question
« on: September 16, 2012, 04:11:40 AM »
This is telling me that 'all A are B' and 'all C are B' but I see no logical conclusions that can be made. Is there a final answer ?
