Incoming 1Ls / Transferring To T1 After First Year From....
« on: May 23, 2007, 06:26:05 AM »
Aside from a student's 1st year GPA, how much weight does a law school place on a transfer applicant's previous school's tier/rank?  For example how likely is it for a T30 to admit a transfer applicant from a T4 with outstanding 1st year grades?   

General Off-Topic Board / Why vote?
« on: March 14, 2007, 08:17:24 PM »

Why do people vote if their vote is statistically insignificant among the thousands or even millions of votes that will ultimately decide an election? 

My 2 cents:  Even though one individual's vote is insignificant, I believe that one vote has much personal meaning.  It stems from our desire to have our voice heard regardless of how futile our actions are going to be.  This is demonstrated by voters of 3rd party candidates during presidential elections.  Another reason why an individual's vote is significant which seems popular among voting advocates is that if one person on every block in America thinks that their one vote is not going to make a difference, then that total number of votes would make a difference.  Therefore, each individual should play his or her part.       

Any thoughts? 

Studying for the LSAT / Horrible Test Taking Conditions???
« on: February 10, 2007, 03:04:32 PM »
Anybody else experienced this today? 

My complaint: 

The tables were very small.  I couldn't have my answer sheet and the test booklet laid out at the same time so I had to shuffle em back and forth as I was answering questions.  Tables' height were low while the chairs height were high so I had to lean over real low to take my test.  This cramped up my neck and upper back. 

Proctor allowed a couple of people to have better tables & seats.  I thought this was unfair. 

Sorry, I'm just venting... >:(

Studying for the LSAT / A Little Late.....
« on: February 07, 2007, 08:04:50 PM »
I know this is a little bit late, but does anybody know where I can purchase a timer that I can bring into the LSAT testing site?  Obviously ordering it online would be too late at this point.  A franchise store maybe?  Help!!!

Studying for the LSAT / PT 29-38 Compared to the current LSATs
« on: January 27, 2007, 03:06:26 PM »
I have a question guys.  I purchased PT 29-38 from LSAC, but I heard from a friend that those tests which dates all the way back to 99-01 are somewhat different than the ones that are currently administered.  After searching the threads here, I got that the Logical Games have gotten a tad easier while Reading Comprehension had gotten a tad harder.  Other than that, are there any other notable differences? 

I recently got my BA, and I'm thinking about going back to school to take a few miscellaneous classes just for self-knowledge purposes.  With that said, I'm also trying to hit two birds with one stone by getting LORs from my future professors/instructors as well because I did not have a good relationship with my professors during my undergraduate career.  I'm planning to take these classes at a community college due to its financial advantages.  My question is do law schools take LORs from community college instructors seriously? Do they have any weight?     

Studying for the LSAT / Neck Cramps & Fatigue
« on: January 19, 2007, 10:00:26 PM »
Hello everybody, I have a question for all my fellow LSATers out there.  When I'm taking the LSAT, by the time I get to the 3rd or 4th section I start to get neck cramps and back aches.  This probably stems from the fact that I have a very bad lower back, but I'm sure everybody experiences some sort of physical fatigue at some level.  This physical discomfort distracts me from the big task at hand (the LSAT).  Has anybody ever experienced this and overcame it?  If so, what did you do?  Any help is appreciated!   :) 

Studying for the LSAT / Reading Material Prep for RC
« on: October 09, 2006, 09:34:55 AM »
I heard people read dense reading materials like editorials in the Wall Street Journal to prep for the RC portion of the LSAT.  Does anybody know any other materials I should read?
