Choosing the Right Law School / Re: convince me

It really depends what you want to do.

If you want the big firm job- IMO the answer is Harvard. Yeah, Yale and Stanford are ranked higher but nothing beats Harvard name wise.

If you want to go into legal academia- then Yale is the obvious choice. They turn out more law professors than anyone else.

If you want something other than those two options, then it gets more difficult.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: should I write an addendum?

just to clarify... Im not whining that I "only" got a 165 and I deserve better.

I'm extremely happy with my LSAT outcome (I mean, the LSAC didnt have to correct my misbubble at all)

Studying for the LSAT / should I write an addendum?
« on: January 09, 2007, 02:32:42 PM »
On my first real lsat I freaked out and got a 161

On the second I just now finnished a long saga with a misbubbling error. Long story shory, they corrected my misbubble and I got a 165. However, I did miss one question due the the misbubbling handscore and should have gotten a 166. Is that worth an addendum or would that just come off as whiny?

Also, on the retake, I completely tanked on the LG section immediatly after I disovered the misbubble (-8). My LR sections were -2 & -1 for perspective. On my previous LSAT, I scored -4 on LG. Would it be worth adding that to the addendum as well?

I really feel like I should have been in the 168-170 range (which is where I was practicing)

Studying for the LSAT / to those who have had scores held before...

Due to a misbubbling and subsiquent handscore request, I didnt get my score today but a warm fuzzy email telling me my score was being held. No ETA.

Anybody know how long it takes for that type of thing to get sorted out?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Help- I misbubbled. What do I do now?

Seems like I am going to miss out on Q 18 no matter what though. I had no way of indicating the answer I wanted for that one.

I suppose missing one is a lot better than 7.

Studying for the LSAT / Help- I misbubbled. What do I do now?

The worst part is I know I was absolutely rocking the thing before it happened.

Basically, I skipped a question in the 3rd section (LR with the sliding doors and such) ,question 18. I noticed what had happened with 30 seconds left to go. At the time I wasnt sure which question had been skipped so there was no time to erase and rebubble. My fervent prayer was that it was the experiemental but the postmortem is indicating otherwise. The proctors wouldnt let me rebubble but did say that they could send in a note with my exam discussing what had happened and indicating that question 18 was the skipped question.

What do I do now?

Just cancel? I already have a mediocre score from september that should at least get me into my backup.

Is it possible they might actually take the addendum into account and score accordingly?
Can it be hand scored? If so, do I have to wait untill the scores are released before I can request a hand score?

The problem is that LSN puts me at about 50/50 for my 2nd choice school and I have already applied with the first score. The school averages- so I am a bit paranoid that the rejection letter could come before anything is sorted out.

Choosing the Right Law School / reapplying same year?

reapplying same year?

Well, I went from averaging 167 on the practice LSAT with a 174 high and 164 low to a 161 on the real deal.  :-\

GPA is a 3.67.

My schools were cornell and georgetown. Now, my former safety is now no certainty: CU boulder. According to the LSAC calc, I have a 50% chance there with my stats. If I apply now and am rejected come december, can I apply again in january with the higher score? Is there a general policy with that. Should I apply now with notice that I will retaking in december. I KNOW I can get at least a 170 if things go my way. I just dont want to shut myself out by applying later.

BTW if you are serious about skiing. The website above is worthless. will tell you all you need to know.
