Law School Admissions / Early Decision

besides UT, are there any other schools that offer non-binding early decision? also does UT's early decision program allow you to apply early decision to other schools


Studying for the LSAT / Testing Site
« on: June 08, 2007, 06:27:38 PM »
So I drove to my testing site today to make sure I knew how to get there, and to be aware of any construction I might encounter on my way there.

I was pleased to say I got there, relatively easy (no construction), but much to my amazement they are constructing a new building right next to where I will be taking the exam!

So in addition to the ambient noise that will be comprised of loud breathing, sniffling, pencils scratching across the surface of paper, I have to deal with loud construction.

I am hoping the testing site has a panic room or bunker underground, otherwise, I expect to lose concentration at some point because of the construction noise.

Studying for the LSAT / PowerScore Weekend Course
« on: April 14, 2007, 07:54:38 PM »
Is the PowerScore weekend course worth the $350 to take it? I plan to take the LSAT in June, and was wondering should I spend my money on the course? If you have taken the course, I would like to know what your average score prior to the course, after the course, and what you scored on an actual LSAT?


Personal Statements, Resumes, and Letters of Recommendation / PS Help

Are there any resources (i.e. books, websites, courses) that anyone would recommend to get started on writing and editing a personal statement? What's a great way to brainstorm a topic?

Studying for the LSAT / June 2007 Format
« on: February 09, 2007, 11:59:40 PM »
Have any old exams with the new format for the RC section been released? I understand that instead of a long passage, it will now be two shorter passages that will be compared and contrasted. Any help on what type of questions will be asked will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Law School Admissions / Volunteering
« on: February 09, 2007, 11:53:42 PM »
How important is volunteering? I know your GPA and LSAT are the key components in determining admission, followed by your personal statement, but what about extracurricular activities? The last time I volunteered was in high school, and I am not involved in anything.


Law School Admissions / Law School Essays
« on: September 08, 2006, 05:20:52 PM »
Do the essay or personal statement prompts, from Tier 1 schools, change significantly over the years? I want to start writing my statement as early as possible, but don't want to commit to anything if its not a prompt that will be used. I am considering applying to the Ivies, and several top state schools (UM, UT-Austin, and UC-Berkeley, amongst others).

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Possibilities for Fall 2008
« on: September 07, 2006, 08:09:37 PM »
I plan to apply to law school for admission in Fall 2008. When I apply, assuming I am still getting all A's, my LSAC GPA will be about a 3.10, and my undegrad GPA at the University of Houston - Downtown, will be about a 3.67. I originally went to UH-Main Campus, but struggled and was put on academic supension with a GPA of 1.76. What are my chances based on a LSAC GPA of 3.10 and LSAT score of 160 to enroll at a T1 school? In light of my past(bad grades), my school(UHD), and my ethnicity(Male Hispancic-from El Salvador), am I being realistic? I would appreciate any comments, advice, and suggestions of schools that will give me an opportunity.

Thank You

Law School Admissions / Fall 2008
« on: September 07, 2006, 06:33:07 PM »
I plan to apply to law school in Fall 2008. Between then and now, what should I be doing? Besides concentrating on finishing my undergrad degree, should I start studying for the LSAT, writing personal statements, or anything else related to applying? Is there such as thing, as being to early? Any advice from current applicants, to those accepted and rejected, would be appreciated.
