Law School Applications / Re: Question/advice

Thanks for the well wishes.  I thought about writing an addendum RE: my situation, but thought that the schools would most likely want me to take the tests proving that it was caused by the sitution and was not a representative score.

Law School Applications / Question/advice
« on: October 23, 2004, 05:59:33 PM »
Just got my score back from LSAC and not exactly ecstatic, a 160 when I was mid-160s through all my practice.  The main issue for me was the week before the LSAT, in which I was sick, it was a tough week at work and my grandfather (who I am close to) passed away the day before the LSAT.  Thus, my concentration was snapped for the test (I am actually suprised that I scored a 160 considering the circumstances).  I still thought I did well when I left the test and thus, did not cancel.

My goal school is UC Hastings (dream school Boalt), I have a 3.55 GPA.  Okay for hastings, not great for Boalt.

Here is my question.  Should I:
(a) Apply with my current stats and cross my fingers and hope for the best.
(b)  Re-take the LSAT in December and attempt to score the mid-160s I thought I would get and if I do, write an addendum into my record regarding why my score was lower the first time.

Any advice would be great.  Thanks!

I probably won't get on the board tomorrow.  Just wanted to wish everyone the best of luck on Saturday.  Just don't do better then me. ;D

Make sure you go have a drink to wind down after the test!

Countdown... less then 48 hours.  Bring it on.

General Off-Topic Board / Re: I got dumped last night

Sorry to hear... sucks to get dumped.   >:(

My suggestion... Make friends with one of the three wisemen (i.e. Jim Beam), then hit up the town, paint it red and wake up the next morning with a hangover and the Coors twins asleep next to you.

My guess is groundskeeper willie.

Lenny might be homosexual, but I don't think carl carlson feels the same way.

Ahh... Simpsons, the most intelligent and funniest show on TV.

When does the new season start up?  Anyone know?

Law School Applications / Re: Question for Economics Majors?

I was econ.  Tax law/estate/trust/real estate... something along those lines.

Corporate is where the bucks are... but it does not interest me that much.

You make a good point.  You could also spend less time on this board and more time studying... but then what fun would life be... ;D

I figure I spend 1-2 hours on this board daily... that could be 1-2 more hours studying...

Depends on whether you are applying in early nov. or not.  If so, you will be studying hardcore for the LSAT until October, then you would only have a month or so to write it and get feedback.

I figure by starting mine now and getting feedback, I will be ahead of the game.

In undergrad I procrastinated until the night before for most of my papers... LS is different.
