Law School Admissions / UVA in-state admissions?
« on: July 02, 2007, 01:21:57 PM »
UVA typically reserves about 40% of its incoming class for Virginia residents, but how much of an admissions boost do in-state applicants typically get from this?  (There aren't many UVA applications listed on Law School Numbers from Virginia, so that's why I'm asking.)

Edited to correct the percentage.

Law School Admissions / Re: Summer before senior year--LSAT or ?

I'm sort of in the same situation but a little different.  I will be studying abroad this coming semester and returning in mid-May.  If I take some tests while abroad (for instance while I'm traveling by train and plane), is taking the June LSAT feasible?  I'm also a little disturbed by the reading comprehension content change on the June test; however, everyone will be in the same boat, so it shouldn't be too terrible, right?

Thanks for the commiseration.  Maybe this will turn out to be positive?  The next closest testing center is at smaller, local university, so maybe the testing conditions will be more laidback and less stressful than at my current school?

What do I do?  If I register for another test center, how will I find out if there are any openings in the one that I want so that I can switch?  Someone mentioned before something about getting an e-mail letting them know about an opening, but how do I set this up?

I was pretty sure that LSAT scores were considered valid for 5 years after you took the test.  As for the fee waivers, I have no idea.

William and Mary is public, but the lack of grade inflation is still a bit overstated.

(To go straight to the grading, it is: )

I think that's the one you're talking about.

Studying for the LSAT / Writing on Practice Tests?
« on: July 02, 2006, 02:57:14 PM »
I'm new, but I've been reading the forum for a while.  I just had a couple questions about preparation.

Should I be writing on the practice tests themselves?  I'm planning on doing between 30 and 40 by the September exam.  I'm hesitant to write on them though because I don't want to run out of practice material before the exam, and it would obviously be easier to retake a test (or just a section for that matter) without any markings on it.

As for my background, I had a diagnostic test with a 160 back at the beginning of June, finished the logic games bible, am almost done with the logical reasoning bible, and scored a 169 on my second practice test which I took on Monday.  If I buckle down and follow the really helpful advice on this board, I should be able to score in the 99th percentile in September, right?

Thanks for any help!
