Studying for the LSAT / Re: Hardest LSAT month?
« on: August 03, 2007, 10:47:10 PM »
Really? I always assumed June testers were gunners-in-training, overachiever types (pool of more qualified testers=tougher curve). 

Unlike September/December/February testers, who (if anything like me) are procrastinators.

ahh, but if that were true, a real gunner would know it and intentionally take a non-June test, no?

good point ;)

...but wouldn't that make it more difficult for them to know which t14 to apply EA and ED in october?  because future gunners always get their apps in before the september score release date :P

Studying for the LSAT / Re: What is generally considered a good score?

I would say high 150s.  You can easily get into a decent T2 (or T3/4 with significant $$$) with that.  Look at my lsn link.

T1 I assume you would need 160+.

Law School Applications / Reapplying and LORs
« on: June 15, 2007, 09:15:51 PM »
I'm considering reapplying for fall 2008--does anyone know if I have to send in new LORs to LSAC or if letters from the previous cycle can be used again the next year?

Thanks!

Acceptances / Re: Housing in Orlando
« on: June 13, 2007, 11:03:25 PM »
FAMU is right off I4, the main freeway in the city.  During off-peak times can get you pretty far in about 20 minutes.  Traffic in Orlando isn't horrendous if you know what streets to take, so take some time to look around the different parts of town.

I think your best bet is the Altamonte area to the north.  It's affordable and a nice/relatively safe suburban area,

The Metrowest/Millenia Mall region (southwest on I-4 from the school) is affordable as well, but there has been a spike in crime around that area lately. 

The East Orlando/Waterford Lakes/UCF area is about 25-30 minutes away from downtown, but offers affordable housing close to a lot of amenities.  It's pretty safe too.  You might have to take toll roads to get downtown though.

The school itself is in a real real shady part of town(Parramore, I believe, which is probably one of the worst parts of Orlando).  I would avoid finding a place too close if you have kids.

Hope that helps!  Good luck.
