Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Where are you waitlisted...

For those of us getting ready to apply for Fall 2005.  Could you tell us were you were waitlisted and what your stats are, so we might better determine where to apply?  Thanks!

I will find out on July 6th.  But I do feel like it helped me.  There were some tips and things that I just hadn't come up with on my own.  Example the first 11 question on the LR section are considered low to medium difficulty but one of those 11 will be a high difficulty question, in attempt to catch someone off guard and have them waste time.  Also question 12 - 24+ will be more difficult but 2 of the questions towards then end are usually low difficulty, so if you are running short on time you might want to skip say a parallel logic question and look for one of the easier ones. There are a lot of little rules and things to help you along the way.  As far as upgrading your course, I personally wouldn't, there seems to be very little difference.

The video lectures are just like live lectures the guy on them even says "if this were a live class you would all be shouting out the answer".  Its unstructured, if thatís what you want to call it, in that you can pretty much chose how you do the course.  I went along with the syllabus lesson by lesson, but if you wanted to you could skip around stuff and work on your problem areas more or first or last.  In a class room you are doing logic flaw on day X and matching games on day Y but with this course you could do it in your own order, though like I said I did it their way.  Since it is free you should take it and see how you feel and then maybe you will not have to spend the extra money on an additional course.

I took the $500 online course.  It is very structured.  You have video lectures for all lessons.  Access to all practice problems and full explanations of every released preptest.  Plus two books (that you get with the live class) a lesson book and a home study book, both full of real LSAT questions.  Not to mention workshops and quiz on every type of question that shows up on the LSAT, like parallel reasoning, logical flaw, difficult reading passages, grouping games, just to name a few. There is also an analysis after your diagnostic test that tells you what you need to work on.  I found it very helpful.  You have to be self motivated, though, because no one is going to make you do the work. A lot of the online stuff is stuff assigned to people in the live classroom.  I suggest taking it first, since itís free, and then decided if you need to take another class.

Law School Admissions / What Law Schools...?

I've read some threads on this site and others saying that there are some law schools possibly loosing their ABA accreditation and provisional members who are likely to be fully accredited with in the next few years.  Where do you get this information?  I would like read over some of this information.  Thanks for your help.

Law School Admissions / Now what?
« on: June 15, 2004, 10:17:31 PM »
Okay, so now many of us are finished with the LSAT and getting ready to start the application process.  Where is everyone at with this process?  Have you registered with LSAC, sent your transcripts, requested LOR, began PS?  Just curious to see where every body is in the process.

I have registered with LSAC.  They've processed all my transcripts.  I have to LOR on the way.  I still need to find a 3rd LOR and begin my PS. 

Any ideas about what to write on for the PS?

schools will know.  it gets reported the you took the test in june 2004 and cancelled the score.  they will not know what you got and neither will you but it will show up.  most schools will require a letter stating why you canceled so unless you have a reason better then "i didn't think i did well" its probably not a good idea.  taking the test a 2nd time and raising your score by 8 or more points would be better if you dont have a solid reason for canceling.
