Studying for the LSAT / Studying before a prep class
« on: August 01, 2007, 02:41:22 PM »
Hey All,

I will soon be taking a prep class. I am nervous about studying and taking practice tests because I don't want to overtest and maybe learn things "the wrong way". Is my concern valid?

thanks

Personal Statement / too depressing?
« on: May 23, 2007, 10:01:13 AM »
So I am thinking about my PS and I really want to talk about overcoming adversity. I have had an "active" life and I am afraid of my PS being depression as subjects show up like

-gang affiliation
-drug addiction and usage in home
-domestic violence in home
-traumatic childhood
-severe neurological illness

anyone have any advice on how not to sound like the misery dude, or is it more about how the subjects are approached?

any feedback would be greatly appreciated

Does anyone have opinions about self studying and familiarizing yourself more with the material then taking a prep class?

Site Suggestions and Announcements / Lingo and abbrv. board
« on: December 06, 2006, 02:50:08 PM »
I just wanted to suggest a board or a permanent post on different abbreviations and lingo that is common on these boards (maybe something like "Getting Started". I found it difficult getting into the swing of things on here not understanding some of the common sayings, phrases that are used by experienced users.

Thanks :)

Black Law Student Discussion Board / Re: Transition from UG to HBCU's

I chose my fraternity, because it was the best choice for me. There are a lot of things like hazing that go on in some of black fraternities on my campus(different sources have told me). It just didnt seem right for me.

Maybe nervous was the wrong word...im basically just looking for how the environments may be different (socially, academically, etc). I didn't want to start an uproar, just looking for some kind of prospective.

Black Law Student Discussion Board / Transition from UG to HBCU's
« on: December 05, 2006, 01:03:40 PM »
I was just wondering if anyone had an opinion on the transition from a predominately white state school to a HBCU. I'm African-American and I attended a white majority state school, was in a predominately white fraternity (as recruitment chairman, I changed that!) and I was nervous about potentially moving to a HBCU. I'm more nervous about the different environment and how it would affect me, nothing wrong with it...just curious

anyone have the same experiences?

Studying for the LSAT / When should I start studying?
« on: December 04, 2006, 08:48:37 AM »
Hey Guys,

As my undergrad starts to wind down I have been thinking about LSAT prep and law school a lot (in the middle of my jr. year) and I plan on entering law school straight after undergrad. The question is, when should i start studying? I have heard "the earlier the better" and "don't start too early"

So if I start studying now and feel prepared should I take it earlier than I planned (fall of senior year?) Thanks for the advice! :) GO BUCKS!
