Law School Admissions / LSAC gpa/lsat likelihood
« on: November 07, 2006, 07:17:50 AM »
OK- how does the LSAC likelihood calculator work?  I mean, what is considered a target, safety, and reach by percentage?

Law School Admissions / Re: can schools see if I'm taking December LSAT?

Maybe you should call LSAC again, my understanding was that you actually get to see what they send to the schools (why shouldn't you?  Your the one paying for it) so I can't see why they would go through all the trouble to put the pdf online and then all the trouble to put on future test dates later before they sent it to schools.  I mean, its not secretive, you know if you registered, so why hide it? It just doesn't make sense.  You should call LSAC again because I bet someone else would give you a different answer.  I think Brian must have been confused...

Ooops just saw that your reptaking in Feb. or June you say?  I would say take Feb!  In June they start that new RC for the first time, not sure if it will be easier or harder, but anything new on a test like this would weird me out.  So just keep that in mind!  And then apply as close to Sept. as you can!  Good Luck!

I'm not sure of the rest, but I'd say detroit-mercy is almost a hole in one, Dayton a really good shot too.  Your score is respectable for a t3 t4 definitely.  I just talked to an admissions counselor a couple weeks ago for Cleveland Marshall (t3) and she said with my gpa (3.71- so nearly identical) that I would only need like a 151, 152 to get in.  So your chances are looking great.  Just apply as early as you can to give yourself that extra boost.

Hi, I'm wondering if you got results from using the Kaplan series.  If so, how big of an improvement did you notice in your LSAT scores.  I'm going to be looking for study materials on soon, so if you post yours, I might just buy them.  Thanks!

I improved 10 points with kaplan from my Sept. lsat score last year- and was practicing at 16 points higher.

case is free to apply to.  those fees add up quickly.

...just trying to help a fellow browns fan.

You from the area?  Where are you applying?  I am sort of rallying all the Cleveland law school applicants.  I want allies when I go in! lol.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: T4's Woith Attending???

Don't turn the statement into some sort of specific universal, Halfie.

The general point is that, as time proceeds, your degree matters less and less and your work ethic and abilities as lawyer practicing the law matters more and more.  Yes, starting off at a certain level is a definite boost, but it's almost a moot point, since anyone attending a T4 (or even a T3) should really just kiss BigLaw goodbye -- probably even MidLaw.

I also think the whole "prestige matters" thing is overplayed.  I think the truth is somewhere in the middle -- it doesn't matter as much as some people like to think, but it matters more than some people are willing to delude themselves about. 


Cleveland Marshall is a tier 3, all be it a tier3 thats in a large legal area with a great reputation, but many graduates work at Jones Day and Reminger and Reminger here.

Umm...the lsat is for law school admission, hence "Law school Admission test." You actually have to sign a statement before you take it that says you will not use it for any other purpose- translation- you are in violation!  Mensa is based off of IQ.  So why don't you take an IQ TEST!  And yes, most everyone on here wants to go to law school- so thank you for insulting us all!
