Law School Applications / I'm screwed!
« on: January 11, 2007, 07:54:58 PM »
I've recently been advised to write an addendum explaining why I didn't show up for the Feb. '05 LSAT (nevermind that I don't have much of an excuse). This got me to thinking about all of my other little flaws....Do I even have a shot at Cooley at this point???

Law School Applications / Registered for LSAT but didn't show up
« on: January 11, 2007, 12:34:11 PM »
in Feb of '05. It shows up on my LSDAS report at "absent." Do you think law schools will look down on that?

Law School Applications / Date you took the SAT???
« on: January 10, 2007, 07:12:11 PM »
The U of H app asks not only for your SAT score but also the month and year in which you took it. I think I took it in the spring of '98 but really, I have no idea. It's been WAY too long. I talked to Collegeboard or whoever regulates the SAT and they said it would be $17.50 and there is no guarantee of even finding that information let alone getting it in time to submit this application before the deadline.

My question is, can I just leave that part blank?

Law School Applications / Send resume to Tulane?
« on: January 10, 2007, 01:48:54 PM »
Throughout Tulane's app it reads "do not submit a resume or other enclosure in lieu of answering this question in the space provided. Use an electronically attached statement only for information that will not fit below."

Of course, I answered the questions in the space provided, but I also want to attach my resume since it elaborates on my experiences. Bad idea?

Studying for the LSAT / Should I cancel??
« on: December 05, 2006, 09:57:58 AM »
Let me start by saying that my expectations aren't very high. I'm hoping for 155-160.

That said, I only finished 3 of 4 of the RC passages, and I'm only really confident on one of them. I only finished 3 of 4 of the LG section. And finally, I had to guess on about 7-9 of the Args. I guessed "D" for all of those I didn't get to.

Given that my accuracy isn't perfect and time got the best of me on this test, should I cancel and apply next cycle or wait it out? (FYI: I have a 3.6 GPA and want to go to Houston)

I really wanted to go to law school next year.  :-\

Personal Statement / to justify or not to justify

Sorry if this has already been posted somewhere, but are you all using "justify" or "align left" for your essays?

Studying for the LSAT / I should be studying
« on: November 27, 2006, 08:53:55 PM »
but I am compelled to just sit here and read posts on this board.

Am I alone here???

Studying for the LSAT / Ativan
« on: November 17, 2006, 10:19:16 AM »
So, I've pretty much been freaking out about the upcoming Dec. 2 since I can't seem to improve my score by even a point, leaving me in the mid150s, and blowing my dreams of top 20 or even top tier law school. So, on the verge of a nervous breakdown, I went to my doctor in the hopes of getting addreall or some other tweak-inducing drug to help me maximize my time. Instead, she told me to "chill the hell out" and prescribed me Ativan. Go figure.

Where should I go next fall? / Am I being unrealistic?
« on: October 17, 2006, 06:53:40 PM »
I'd love to make it to a top tier school, but I just can't seem to break a 160 on any of my practice tests. I've got a UG GPA of 3.6 from a small unknown private college. Worked 1 year in the state legislature and 2 as a legal assistant. Great LORs and PS but no ECs.

So far applying to:

UT-Austin (my dream....)
Washington-Seattle
American
UC-Hastings
USD
Houston
Miami
Denver
Colorado-Boulder

Do you think I have a decent chance at any of these schools or do I need more safety schools?

Studying for the LSAT / Must. Keep. Practicing. Help!
« on: October 05, 2006, 06:19:32 PM »
So, I postponed the 9/30 test to Dec. b/c I didn't feel that PR and 2 months studying was enough prep. So, here I am, nearly a week out from the Sept test date, and I haven't so much as worked one LG. I was SO diligent before and now I just can't seem to regain my focus. WTF?! I'm probabaly just burnt-out, and now that the pressure is off I'm having trouble getting my groove back.

Anyone else experiencing this sort of thing? How do I get over this?  ???
