Recommendations / Re: How do I reconnect with former professors for LORs?
« on: November 21, 2006, 02:25:18 PM »
I had a similar situation with a professor I did research with. I emailed him letting him know what I had been doing since college and that I wanted to go to law school and why. I asked if he would still be willing to write a LOR, and asked if I could come in to give him the form and my resume. Then when I went in, I refreshed his memory on what research projects I worked on and what I specifically contributed (the more specific, the better the letter will be).

I think face time is important, as many people are visual & need to see a person in order to remember who they are. Is scheduling a meeting or lunch with each of them too much?

Recommendations / How do I reconnect with former professors for LORs?
« on: November 21, 2006, 02:18:08 PM »
I graduated in June 2003 and have moved out of state & lost touch with my former professors. I did some volunteer T.A. work for the Philosphy Director who agreed to write a LOR as compensation/thanks. I am also confident that I could ask my Pre-Law & mock trial advisor for one.

How do I go about requesting letters from instructors I haven't seen or spoken to in 3.5 years?

(I plan to sit for my LSAT in June 2007 & then apply for the Fall 2008 term)

(Thanks in advance to everyone's assisatance)

If I could afford to not work for a year, I would join the Peace Corps. Maybe that's an option for you?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Test booklet appearance on actual test day

formatting and layout is the same, but the text is less distinct(maybe on a toner budeget?) and the paper is a different shade of color and is thinner (it's that recycled newsprint stuff)


That sounds like a panic attack waiting to happen.
do they provide scratch paper? I tend to use a lot of it...

i.e. if you're used to erasing a lot of stuff on LG sections, get over it.

It's fun when you erase a hole in the page and wipe out a few answer choices on the other side for the next game, or obliterate a question stem, that is even better.

Someone called Ann Coulter that a long time ago. I thought it fit. :)
Looks 8
Smarts 4

Who cares if she's smart if she's a thunder-female private part?

Thunder-female private part?!?!?

That was my reaction.  What does that mean, anyway?  :D

 ;D ;D ;D
LMAO!!!

That is the nicest way of calling someone a c**t that I have ever heard!

He's the absolute sweetest most patient person in the world, and i'm the opposite of patient, so it works for us. And do any of the other ladies on here have a man who is happily willing to contribute equally around the house?
I couldn't see myself with anyone else.

I'd do it for free.  I would think that all the nerdy wiener-type people would be self-conscious and come out of it with an inferiority complex, damaging their score.  In addition, I would try to draw attention to myself, distracting others.  Maybe start with some toe-touches and jumping jacks outside the test room while waiting for admittance.



This would be my strategy as well. But if you wanted to give me some extra points, I wouldn't turn them down.
