how do we delete our posts?  ...i didn't realize it was any different than discussing the "released" tests prior to their release.

Just go to modify and at the top right of your post and delete everything.  I didn't know it was taboo either.

JTG - we should erase our responses on this thread.  I didn't know you weren't supposed to talk about the test.

At midnight?? Thanks!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: December Scores Accidentally Released!

All potential LSAT takers registered for the December test have been accidentally given a random score for the test! Although this will be marked as an error on your applications, your score WILL be shown to prospective schools. You will be automatically reregistered for the december test, but this may move you to a different testing location.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for you.

Where were you for the "HYS with a 2.8/160" thread.  That thread should be pinned, I still show it to people.

Law School Admissions / Re: Any advice with a low LSAT (i.e.logic games)?

The games are the most coachable section of the test.  Almost all non-math majors struggle at first with the games.  Did you try Powerscore's Logic Games Bible?  It's the best for the games IMO, really clear and concise instruction.  Schools in the 10 to 30 range receive so many apps relative to slots that I'm not sure that a math-disability addendum will help your chances enough to overcome that LSAT score.  I'm definitely no insider though.  Good luck this cycle.

You have excellent soft factors (URM, WE, Credible GPA addendum).  I think you'll be strongly considered each school that you are considering.  Are you a lock for the T14? No.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Be Careful of Lower Tiered Law School

Well, it obviously seems like "NotReally" has it all figured out. Go to a lower-tier school, post-graduation have a crappy job, and god forbide you fail the bar! Your life as a lawyer is just a dream, right? Think again.

My sister graduated from a non-accredited law school in  California ten years ago. Yes, that's right, a non-accredited school. She took the bar, passed it on the first time, got an okay job right out of school, but soon enough ventured off into private practice. She is now living in Hollywood Hills, California, with an office off of Rodeo Drive.

A family friend of mine went to CUNY-Law School (Queens) six years ago; it took four year for him to graduate. He failed the bar twice. Yes, did you hear that "NotReally"? He failed the bar exam TWICE. But he passed on his third try. He is now, as a practing attorney with a private general practice, running for State Senate for a particular district in Queens, New York. He is doing very, very well for himself.

"NotReally" and the rest of you would be very suprised about how many successful, powerful attorneys out there made it to where they're at. Of course, going to a upper/top tier law school will not only prepare you better for the bar exam and help you get a better paying job right out of school. That's common sense.

But if you don't go to the "better" schools, you can still do fine--you have to just be smart. Rather than get paid 80-100 thousand a year working for a firm fresh out of law school, giving blood for the next 6-7 years of your life, accept your 40-60 thousand dollar job out of that "lower" school, learn the ropes, and when that day comes, go into private practice. Because that's what my sister and family friend did...both in less than two years working for someone else.


Anecdotal, the original poster used stats.

I only studied for about a month and a half, but that's because I only decided to go to law school about two months ago. We'll see how well that worked in about a week.

How do feel about your score?  What were your averages on practices?

it's never too early to start studying for the LSATs.  sh*t, i wish i would've started freshman year of college.  i think it takes a while to get this stuff so well that you can score in the 170s. 

on that note, i think i'll start studying for the bar.

I forecast a -18 on RC for you!

He had me pretty confused, I was thinking-whoa! Not quite ready for this board.

Thanks, also, I noticed that the games in the Logic GB are from the 90's, but have heard several people state that they are now different, generally, for this decade (whatever we call it).  Are they more or less difficult?  I kinda like the LGB games.
