Non-Traditional Students / Re: Non-trad ASL PASO?
« on: April 09, 2007, 09:10:17 PM »
It is a conditional admit.  Depending on how well you do in the class.  That's what so hard about these "provisional acceptances", no clue.  At least 3-weeks of this one is online and I have access to the law book now.  But what is expected during the 1-week on campus portion?

Shoot...I had written off the entire 2007 cycle.  But this is a school I wanted to attend.

Thanks,

Non-Traditional Students / Non-trad ASL PASO?
« on: April 09, 2007, 08:47:37 PM »
I intentionally placed this on 2 threads for more exposure.  I wanted to gather some non-trad feedback as well.

With an awful GPA & LSAT, I decided to withdraw almost all of my 2007 applications.  Then, I get a provisional acceptance to Appalachian School of Law.  I am a non-traditional, married with kids, decent job, mortgage, etc. etc.  So this is a very serious decision.

Does anyone know anything about ASL’s PASO program or ASL?  Number invited vs. number accepted?  Is it a game or is it the real deal?  It is 3-weeks online and 1-week in house.  All of the research I did placed ASL near the top of my list of regional schools that I would attend or could attend.  Their ADR is very respectable.  Etc.

Here is the link that explains it in more detail:

Thanks in advance,

Studying for the LSAT / Who didn’t study the week of the LSAT?
« on: February 07, 2007, 07:54:49 PM »
How many people have NOT studied the week prior to taking the/a LSAT?  Past or Present?  How did you perform?  Regrets?  No difference?

Maybe I am feeling guilty, but I haven’t studied a lick this week.  I have logged countless hours since Oct / Nov 2006 and I am flat burned-out.  I took a PS weekend cram course two weeks ago.  But two weeks isn’t enough time to cram in the homework.  I am a first time taker as well.  Maybe I’ll learn a lesson and retake in Sep 07?

Am I the only to ever do this? 

EDIT>>>

I just read the other post on the same topic...sorry!

I tried deleting it, but oh well.

RobinSinghsDaddy is very wise.  Everyone should reread his post.

Yes he is...

Reread his post folks...

Life is all about perspective.  Don't believe me?

If it is not there, then Google "Team Hoyt"

What a story!

I hope this helps someone keep the LSAT in the right perspective.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Weekend PowerScore Class
« on: December 21, 2006, 01:55:49 PM »
Thanks SharkBait...

SweetPri,

Sounds like we're getting closer to pulling out the Visa card. 

I am trying to get to the LSAT Median (155 - 160) for most of my schools and hopefully my soft factors will make up for my "not so stellar UGPA".  If $400 - $500 (tuition, room, food) will help me score 4 points higher, then it is worth it.  Why throw a $1,000 (app fees, prep books, LSAC, etc.) down the drain, when just a little more might have made the difference?  Make sense?

I think you'll do fine.  You're heart (effort) is in the right place and that is what 90% of life is made of anyway.

SharkBait (all),

What if you studied the PS Bibles 2 months prior to taking the weekend course?  I am in the same boat as SweetPri and I am looking at a PS weekend course in Jan (two weeks prior to Feb LSAT).

I just started taking a PT every other day and reviewing Kaplan explanations in between. I do wish PS provided explanations to PTs. But the Kaplan answers are close enough to show the reasoning and logic.

The hard part about any course is deciding about the teacher.  I have called PS several times about the teacher in my area and all I get is the 99th percentile answer.  How can you pre-determine if the teacher is any good?

Oh well!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Why hasnt the LR bible helped me?
« on: December 13, 2006, 07:35:35 AM »
I have a pre-emptive question, per se.

I just finished reading the LGB and I will finish the LRB this weekend.  I kind of feel the same way about the LRB.  But…

I haven’t started doing practices sections since studying the bibles. 

(SweetPri) I read a very good post by “ProfessorPlum” that suggested we do manageable sections everyday.  1 section each day and review.  2 sections a day and review.  Take a PT and review. At a pace you can live with of course.  I think YYYY and BOSS hit the nail on the head.  FOCUS and REVIEW.

I am going to try that until the end of Dec and see where I stand.

(Everyone) Here is my question.  If at that point I still feel weak, do I look at a weekend PowerScore course?

Will a 16-hour cram course help with just 2-weeks before the Feb07 test?  I wish they offered it 3-4 weeks prior to the exam.  Do they offer more problems and EXPLANATIONS in their course books?  6 problems at the end of each chapter is NOT enough.

I am willing to spend $500 (tuition, room, food) to earn an additional 5 points.  My goal is a 160.  I have not taken a PT since 10/28 (144) when I started studying the bibles.

Or do I hunker down on PTs and reviewing the bibles.

Thanks in advance,

Studying for the LSAT / Re: What to Expect Different on the Feb LSAT?
« on: December 07, 2006, 11:31:32 AM »
I am taking the LSAT in Feb07 as well.  First timer…

Here is something to think about while it is still fresh in Dec06 test takers minds.

What were the game types for 12/06? 

I just finished the LG Bible and the last couple chapters focused on rare game types.  Some of which have not been used in years.

Is there a “reasonable” chance we’ll see anything different than Linear, Grouping and/or Combos? 

The Mapping, Pattern, and Circular Linearity games seem to give me the most trouble, but so does everything on the LSAT.

Do they use any special “experimental” games or sections?  The Feb test seems like a good opportunity to pull some tricks since there no disclosure.

As you can tell my mind is playing tricks on me…
