Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Biglaw in San Diego
« on: March 20, 2007, 08:57:08 PM »
One of the places im interested in goin to school is USD.  And I realize that if i go here, most likely i will end up workin in SD.  However, my question is, why isn't there that many Big Law firms in SD? It is one of the 10 largest cities in the country population wise, yet cities like SF and Miami have way more Big Law firms than SD does.  With that said, the second part of my question is, how hard is it to get into Biglaw in SD? I've heard it is a very tight legal market, so what would it take to get into a good sized firm (assuming I went to USD)

yo JB, how u end up losin on White Rapper Show man? Shamrock sucks.

im takin one of these things this Sat. and theres a couple more comin up as well.  How should i look at my score for it, in terms of what percentage i got on each section? Can these things actually be used to judge what i need to practice and how much i need to practice or is it simply just a thing to get familiar wit the questions?

Studying for the LSAT / Help W/ LR Questions
« on: February 15, 2007, 02:09:34 PM »
Do any of u guys know of any good websites that have good advice about solving these types of questions? I know about the LRB, but can't really afford it since I already spent a ridiculous amount on books this semester.  thanks

The LSAT is a standardized test, so any test is as good as any other to evaluate your base score.

Check the fine print and see if the test that Kaplan is offering is a real LSAT or not (should be 4 sections and a total of 100 / 101 questions).

Don't bother taking the test online - it's a totally different experience, and you will likely score much differently than you would with a regular paper test. I don't know if you've ever done logic games, but I can't imagine doing them for an online test (diagramming on a separate piece of paper?)
makes sense. thanks

I just registered at kaplan's site and they offer a free LSAT test online.  Is this a good test to base my studying off of, in terms of what sections are my weakest and strongest? Or should I just take a previous test to see evaluate my self?

I've been studying for the LSAT w/a friend & we've been giving each other advice on our weaknesses/strengths & things of that nature.

I can make this a really long & detailed thread here but I'll try not to.  My question basically boils down to this:  I've noticed more than anything that she struggles w/comprehension & understanding what it's saying (having to read the LR stimulus 2-3x, re-reading the RC passages, etc.)  Logic Games is her best section.  She's been studying for the LSAT for almost 2 years now. It's just that past couple months where the negative attitude she's ALWAYS had has changed to positive & that obviously makes a BIG difference.  February will mark her 3rd time taking this exam. She's pretty comfortable w/the concepts (necessary vs. sufficient, logical flaws, etc.,) but we were both trying to diagnose her problem (the problem being no improvement in her score & so forth) & I think it's comprehension.

I told her the only 2 remedies for this are: Get on prescription drugs such as adderall, ritalin, etc., to help you focus better OR just keep practicing. She is most definitely against getting on those drugs & frankly I don't blame her.  She has taken testmasters twice already.

So I guess my question to you guys is what's her problem? Is it comprehension? I know she's not stupid.  In fact she's one of the brightest people I know. She's just not improving on this damn test. I told her to keep at it & never give up if this is what she really wants.  I've never met anyone so persistent & strong-willed.

I recommend that she start reading Scientific American & The Economist everyday to improve her reading comprehenshion.  And she has.  She's taking the exam in Feb & again in June if she has to.

damn, u need to make that avi bigger.....
