Studying for the LSAT / Re: Improving LSAT VOCAB

Seek periodicals which have been considered to be reputable authorities. This is a stretch but try legal reviews. Start off on topics that interest you and then go deeper. I am sure this will test your attention span but will give you an edge on the comp. when discussing key legal topics.  ;)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: OVER KILL STUDYING
« on: September 22, 2006, 12:58:44 PM »
Be careful, I had been studying balls to the wall for the past 2 1/2 months then, like two weeks ago I found that my score was actually dropping because I was losing my focus and was getting sloppy. So I have decided to just do 1 full practice exam a couple days before (sept 30) and other then that I am just practicing LG and studying my LRB and LGB again.

JUST BE CAREFUL YOU DON'T BURN YOURSELF OUT.

J, what were you scoring prior to your slump?

Studying for the LSAT / For Those Who Have Withdrawn from Test Day (Re Deux)
« on: September 22, 2006, 12:45:20 PM »
Greetings!

I was scheduled to take the Sept. 30th LSAT, and due to a crazy summer of working double shifts (day and night), I felt it would not be in my interest to take this test at this time. I have taken simulated tests and a "course" on how to excel on the LSAT so I believe the resources to make a successful result are in my grasp, yet I will need to follow this up with practice, practice, practice.
My mock tests were producing 140's. Not good at all. I live in a competitive region, and so the incentive to get into a top tier school is priority number one. Your thoughts? I welcome them positive or negative.

I have another question to you all.
How much weight would one put into "member posts" websites such as lawschoolnumbers.com? Lawschoolnumbers.com appears to be accurate, however, I have seen a lot of "yeah right" accepted students who appear to have a low, low, GPA, and their LSAT score was say 165, and as a result, they had their choice of school. Thoughts?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How does the transfer process work???

So, what you are saying is that this is a way to get out of having a less-than average lsat score? I have heard of this process, but I have not research it to see if those who are "transfering" are really transfering and not just dropping out of school.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: ASU or Temple
« on: June 09, 2006, 02:03:42 PM »
USNWR ranks Temple at 58 whereas, ASU is listed at 53.

Do you want to work on the East coast or in AZ?
 
Also, the bar passage rate for ASU is 75%;
the bar passage rate for TU is 78%.

Hope this helps
