Where can I buy some transparent or skin-colored earplugs? Not what they call "clear" white silicone.

Studying for the LSAT / taking test with you

On the real thing do they let you keep the test, like in TM, after you're done with it?

Probably not, but it sure would be nice to take it home and figure out what you got and cancel if low.

Studying for the LSAT / extra time on the test?

Someone told me you get extra time on the test if you have ADD or other medical conditions. Is that true?

Law School Admissions / Quickest way to get Bachelor's degree
« on: August 16, 2006, 03:47:01 PM »
I have four years of undergraduate coursework in Jurisprudence, but no degree from a University outside of the US. I have my academic transcripts evaluated by to be equivalent to the US Bachelor's. I don't think any more reputable foreign credential evaluators or LSDAS would give me equivalency without a diploma. WES refused, are there others, more flexible?

Law school I'm trying to go to told me to get Bachelor's degree from an accredited US school. What is the quickest way to get a degree in my situation?

Thank you.

Studying for the LSAT / How much is diversity worth to schools?
« on: July 22, 2006, 04:23:14 PM »
US schools talk about valuing diversity of the student body. Is it mostly for PR or will it really add some points to a good story-teller?

What I have to sell is a history of fighting poverty while growing up in a closed city of a totalitarian country, suffering a severe personal injury caused by a hate crime against me. Large portions of the epic will be supported by great references from professors.

My undergraduate degree is in law (possible in my country) with a GPA of 4.0. English is not my 1st or 2nd language that's why I don't hope to score as high on LSAT as some of you guys.

If my LSAT score is slightly lower (let's say 160) than median at the school to which I'll apply (163), will being a minority make up for some of it? How much are personal statements and references worth against LSAT scores?

Thank you very much!

Studying for the LSAT / No scratch paper on the test

Scratch paper is not allowed on Logic Games section either? How do you manage to solve these games w/o diagraming?

Studying for the LSAT / How long did you study for LSAT?
« on: July 19, 2006, 02:54:24 PM »
After receiving a horryfying 147 on my practice test I signed up for Testmasters and decided to invest another 100-150 hours in addition to the class time.  Do you think it should be enough to bump my score up to 165+? English is my 3rd language, so it takes me a bit longer than a native speaker.

How many hours did you put into preparation and how did it change your score?
