Law School Admissions / Splitter Stories from the 06-07 cycle
« on: June 17, 2007, 10:18:13 PM »
As someone who would be honored to hold the title of a true splitter in the 07-08 cycle i am curious to know the stories of you guys and why you had such a crap gpa

me, well i was a party animal and spent a great deal of time running behind skirts and having skirts run behind me. i worked a lil, but academics were last on the priority list.

Are splitters totally unheard of at Cal Berkley
which is oddly enough lower ranked then UPenn

goddamnit, i should have sat for this test.
grouping games are the only games i don't have down to a science.
murphy's law would dictate that when i take the test in september 3 out of the 4 games will be F'ing grouping

Studying for the LSAT / what kinds of logic games were on the test

I always hear the probability of certain games goes down with each year and i am curious as to which games were on the last test

i am assuming there were at least 2 grouping games and 1 sequencing

Just something for you all to opine on

Giving the cost of tuition and job possibilities at Howard (discounting the mediocre bar passage rate or you wanting to work in Seattle), how much sense does it really make to go any where else if you cannot get admitted to a top 25 school. Regardless of your race.
It has long been known that Howard is one of the hidden jewels for an education in law and subsequent career placement, but I was just looking for thoughts particularly in opposition on why one wouldn't attend howard given the pros and cons.

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Blacks and LSAT scores
« on: April 13, 2007, 01:45:50 PM »
Very few people have a nack for the lsat inherently and I am of the majority that don't. What I would like to convey in this post is simple...Black folks need to start investing in good lsat prep classes (i.e. powerscore and testmasters) like White folks. It shouldn't be a suprise at the margin of difference between our avg lsat and white folks based on our representation in these classes. I have been to both a testmaster and powerscore class (in washington d.c. mind you) and the lack of black representation was startling. This can probably be attributed to the $1200 price tag that goes along with this course, but whatever the case, it is money well spent. I consider myself a smart brother, but to say I was shocked when I took my first diagnostic test scoring a 142 would be an understatement. My most recent diagnostic was 166. That was no accident. The privied info and techniques you receive in these classes are mind boggling. By all means avoid Kaplan classes like the plague.
It should strike you as no suprise that those priviledged enough to have a parent pay for these classes do well on this exam, while those on the other end of the socioeconomic ladder have a less impressive performance. The haves will continue to have and the have nots will continue to struggle.

Studying for the LSAT / Studying when you aren't studying

Am I the only one that feels as though I am studying for the lsat even when I am not. It seems even though i don't have the materials in front of me 24/7 often times I find myself going through problems in my head. Is that normal, weird or does that just make me special

barring the excellent reputation of the school, does the incessant bombardment of ugly women have a psychological affect on you?

not to imply that this problem is unique to UC, but sometimes it has to really suck attending an institution so professionally/academically favorabvle  and experiencing a total void of beauty in the ivory towers day in and day out

Hello Mr Mindthegap76

if the consistency of your replies on this board is any indication of your spare time in law school at UC where do i sign up?
i kid
have you encountered any  splitters at UC. Specifically sub 3.0?
If so was there anything in particular that distinguished them?
