They're in.  And no, I'm not posting my score.  >:(

aww, sorry :(

Thanks.  Que sera, sera.  Hope you and everyone else gets the score y'all want.  As for me, I'll think about taking it one more time (I really don't want to) or putting my energy towards something else. :)

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Re: Low ugpa

I'm replying because curiosity is getting the best of me.  Since this post is from October, have you come to a decision?  How do you think you did on the LSAT?  Reply here or PM me.

P.S. The Non-Trad board needs to wake up more often.  Haha!

I was under the impression that UT Austin only had a full-time program. 

But to answer your question, I'm not aware of any other law programs in Austin.  If you're willing to relocate, St. Mary's in San Antonio recently started a part-time program.  Then there's SMU, Texas Weslayan, U. of Houston and South Texas.

I was sort of hoping we'd get them yesterday.  I wanted to send my apps.  Oh well.

Let's just get it over with.

Damn. At least you drive a Jeep.

YUP, that's a lot of the reason behind why I bought such a fun vehicle!  That's mine in the avatar and, believe me, I've had a blast with it in all seasons.  It's usually full of dogs, too.  Four of them.  They crack me up.

I don't mean to trivialize the importance of this score, either.  But I'm in my forties, and over the years I've seen and been through a lot more stuff than I'd been through when I first graduated from college, so that's helped me put things in perspective.

The way I get over everything -- even a not-so-good-LSAT-score (if that is what I get) is to just HAVE AS MUCH FUN AS POSSIBLE EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.  Jeeps help, for sure.


I like your attitude.  I wish I could find more posts similar to yours on LSD.  The sniping about schools, LSAT scores and applications can be overly dramatic at times.

Here's to hoping for a decent score!

I don't know if its just me, but I am SO SICK OF WRITING ABOUT MYSELF!!

I loved my personal statement when I wrote it in August, but now I am so sick of tailoring it to specific schools and making different versions of it that I want to print out a copy just so I can have the joy of burning it!!!

Hahaha!  I have to agree.  I'm tired of adding this and editing that.  This PS stuff is for the birds!  But yeah, I'll keep proofreading until I'm satisfied.  Good luck to ya!


Studying for the LSAT / Re: Day before the LSAT...
« on: December 04, 2008, 10:13:36 PM »
Well, I took the day off from work because I had some PTO I needed to use or lose.  I'll be taking the family cat to the vet in the morning, try and get my car inspected since the sticker expired last month and find a new battery for my watch (lol).  I might do some PrepTest drills, but I'm not sure.

This is my second (and probably last) time taking the LSAT.  Whatever I score, I'm working with it.  Good luck December takers!

Law School Admissions / Re: Post-Bac Undergrad Courses
« on: November 14, 2008, 09:31:08 PM »
From my understanding they do not. I called LSAC about this, since I wasn't sure if my post-bac institution (I only took undergraduate level courses) were considered undergrad or graduate. They said that any courses that you take after graduation are considered graduate classes, and therefore have no impact on your undergraduate GPA. When LSAC processes your transcript, this GPA is calculated and considered separately.

Looks like I've found the answer to my question, but I just wanted to be sure of one thing: so when we request transcripts, we also have to request from any institution that we've taken classes post-bac?  even if they were undergrad level classes?
