Studying for the LSAT / Re: CHOKED?!?
« on: July 02, 2004, 04:02:36 PM »

Do well in October and no worries.  A few stories to supplement Ruskiegirl.

(1)  I have a friend who had good grades, but bombed the first LSAT she took.  Then she took it a second time and got 99%.  She is going to Northwestern.  I think she might have taken testmasters before the second time.  Did you ever take TM or PS?   

(2)  I have another friend who went to Syracuse (T3), kicked ass L1 and then moved on to Early admission at Georgetown.  It helped that he got in with his profs too.

Think positively and I wish you the best.  Ruskiegirl, hope to join you there 2005... need to ace my LSAT though.

Congrats all.  Scores a looking pretty good for most.  Now go out and have a few beers to celebrate  ;D(or drown your sorrows :-[).  I hope I can break 170 for my Oct. LSAT like some of you.

THX for all the advice!  I will write one PS and worry about any supplemental ones when the time comes.

Jacy85 is deadon.  Write about it in an addendum.  That is the appropriate place for that type of information.

I just found a new website (thanks to this board) that has some good info on personal statements.  Check it out.

Law School Admissions / Re: Degree Granting GPA vs. LSDAS GPA

I am not sure why they list the Degree granting GPA.

Here is what LSAC says about calculating their grading policy:

Hopefully that answers your question.

Okay, one quick questions related to the personal statement.  Sorry if this is a repost of any kind.  I searched it and could not find anything on these.

Do some LS require several personal statements?  I noticed had a personal statement, a diversity statement and a suplimental statement.  Is this typical or only at Boalt or what?


Some good personal statement samples are available online here:

Law school confidential is a good book to read to stir up the mind and get you thinking about everything related to Law School.

CourtJester, thanks for the info.  I appreciate it.  I have taken a look at some profs at various schools and it looks like most of them either have JDs or JDs and some kind of masters or PhD. 

I will focus on my JD for now and think about an LL.M in the future.

The testmasters everyone talks about on this board is  I don't know anything about the other testmasters (

I am following a similar path as Jacy85.  LG bible and then the PS full length course.  I also purchased all of the available practice tests from amazon and  I have been a little hesitant in taking the practice tests because TM and PS give you real LSATs to work with and I don't want to screw up the diagnostic or anything like that. 

Jacy85 did you take a bunch of practice tests too or just LG bible and PS weekend?
