NYLS has better job placement than CUNY Law

There are probably inundated with applications right now and it should be requested shortly

180 - Eh, that'll do

179 - Call it quits on going to Law School

178 - Threaten a class-action law suit against LSAC on behalf of all test takers who didnt get their desired score

177 - Life isn't worth living

Some of you people are obviously joking and some of your lives are jokes.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Difficulties Studying at Home

I agree that studying in busy areas is good practice for eliminating distractions; the actual lsat room might veyr well have real distractions. My first official test had plenty of them.

My problem is reading comprehension. I can steadfastly concentrate on logic games and logical reasoning question stems but my mind wanders when there are distractions and I am reading the passage. I'm gonna try to keep practice but it's not getting any easier.

I usually study in the library, subway, cafes, park, and home. Maybe I should find a monastery.

General Off-Topic Board / Part-time Entry Level legal position
« on: November 17, 2006, 04:52:04 PM »
Does anybody know how to acquire a part-time entry level position at a law firm?

I've been on interviews and they all want experience or fulltime. I passed my resume on to everyone and got the same response. Staffing agencies want full time and completed degrees. I get my degree in May.

Any suggestions?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Retake in Dec or June for next cycle?

I've decided to retake next June instead of Dec. All the good test centers are already taken and one of the reasons i didn't do as well on the Sept is because of the incompetently run test center. I figure I'll have more time to prepare. A new RC doesn't scare me that much, it's the same length but just two opposing views instead of one author's view. And they'll release samples of it.

I'm just hoping all that extra time will allow me some extra studying to get an even better score improvement and to get in early for the the Fall 08 Admission cycle. The schools I want to attend are all high 160's low 170s.

That fact that you obviously strove to improve your grades and the quality of school which you were attending should highlight a positive steadfastness in your academic career. I think it can only help that you showed such improvement in your success.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Uggh, reading comprehension is killing me

Do any of you make a chart with one topic sentence for each paragraph in the passage? That's what testmasters recommended and I'm not sure how well it works. Do any of you see this as a good strategy on RC passages?

You guys are sending out apps now and then sending in your Dec. score later?

I'm in the same boat and debating whether or not to apply at this cycle or wait till the next.
