This question doesn't even need to be asked.  2pac.

Zioni is dope too, but that is some underground *&^%.

Personal Statement / Re: Cartoon PS.
« on: July 19, 2004, 01:37:09 PM »
I agree with everyone here.  PS cartoon is a bad idea.  LS is about writing, not drawing.  Have a blue and start working on your statement.  You will want to do it sometime soon so you can have family/friends take a look at it and provide you feedback.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: start registering for the LSAT test?

Yes, sooner the better.  I don't know about Austin/Houston per se, but the sooner the better to insure you get a close testing center.

I am not planning to apply there, but I thought some of you might be interested.

Screen shot of LSAC application and letter of acceptance would work as proof.  Just black out your info.

Good luck if this is not BS.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: For those of you who took Powerscore
« on: July 14, 2004, 03:16:08 PM »
My suggestion is to call powerscore and see what tests will be administered and provided to you as full tests.  In my opinion, it does not matter as much whether you have seen a PS homework problem before on a practice test.  After all, you are doing the homework to understand how to approach a problem, not as a diagnostic.  It just matters on the diagnostics so you can see where you are excelling or need some help.

But, this is all just a personal opinion.

Best of luck to you too.  May we all walk away with 170+.

I was worried that I was not giving myself enough time to study.  I spoke with a UC Hastings prof who said I was fine on study time.

It is hard to find time to study with work and weddings and all that jazz this summer.  I have started a calendar to map out my schedule for the next 2+ months.

I started reading the LG bible.  Taking PS class starting Aug. 7th.  I have taken 2 practice tests scoring Ok on them.

I asked PS for which tests they will test and provide us with.  I plan to take 2 tests a week from now until the test date, possibly increasing that to more as the test date approaches.  I will be doing all of the PS homework.  

What is everyone shooting for?  I want a high 160 or a low 170, but I will have to work hard for that.

Additionally, I have drafted my Personal statement and updated my resume.  I plan to order my transcripts ASAP and then start working on getting reco's from my profs.

I would suggest taking it at college of Alameda.  I am taking it there in October.  I have not been there, but I suspect that it is better then a "ballroom" and may be less hectic then trying to take it in berkeley.  I plan to go take a look at the site and take a few tests there in the near future.  I will let you know how it is when I go.

Oakland is not as bad as everyone makes it out to be.  It just depends on the neighborhood.  I was born and raised in Oakland and I have never been mugged or shot at or anything like that (I am knocking on wood as I am writing this statement).  Every city has it's bad spots, Oakland just has some really large bad spots.

Pre-Law in high school / Re: Am I doing the Right Thing?
« on: July 08, 2004, 02:09:01 PM »
Why do you want to go to Law School?  Why does being a Lawyer interest you?  Law school is not something that should be taken lightly... just going to go or going because your father is a lawyer are not good reasons to attend law school.

I agree with most people who posted.  My suggestion is focus on your studies, get a good GPA in whatever field interests you, get to know your professors, but above all, enjoy yourself in school.  Make sure you accomplish what you need to, but be sure to do other things you aspire to do... go abroad for a semester, take some recreational courses, party, etc.  Don't visit this board and start stressing until the end of 2nd or beginning of 3rd year.
