Studying for the LSAT / Re: happiest day of my life!
« on: March 28, 2007, 06:40:47 PM »

This response goes out to both you and the person who posted the 149 thing.  As you may or may not know...and I'm guessing you don't, I didn't study for the LSAT.  That is why I got a 149.  I'm taking it again in June, and after only about 2..maybe 2 and a half weeks of prep, I'm already scoring from 160-164 on practice tests.  I didn't take the LSAT 5 times like some people who I guess were using the "blind squirrel finds the acorn" approach.

lol


If I don't get into any of the schools I applied to, then yeah, I'll go ahead and retake the LSAT.  I just think it's a shame, because I don't really believe the LSAT tests anything at all.


You're silly.

I don't believe it tests anything at all.  Nothing of value, anyway, only the ability to take that test.  I never denied that and I'm not doing it now.  But if you take it 5 times....and presumably you study for it every time, it says a hell of a lot if you can only go up 4 points from your first time to your fourth or fifth time.  At some point, it becomes a matter of learning from your mistakes, and that's not a really convincing case of somebody doing it.  That does speak to somebody's intelligence.

My states are as follows: LSAT = 149, GPA = 3.43  I've taken a few undergrad classes in law and aced them, and have solid LOR's.
The schools I've applied to thus far are:

Cleveland State University
Richmond
Campbell University
Dayton
University of Tennessee Knoxville
University of Kentucky
University of Louisville
Duquesne
Mercer
Case Western

What are my prospects? I was looking at the lsac calculator but don't really believe it, because in inflated my stats a bit and even then it said I couldn't get into some universities that I'm sure I can get into with my actual stats.
Thanks





FATALITY

This response goes out to both you and the person who quoted my post from 3 weeks ago.  As you may or may not know...and I'm guessing you don't, I didn't study for the LSAT.  That is why I got a 149.  I'm taking it again in June, and after only about 2..maybe 2 and a half weeks of prep, I'm already scoring from 160-164 on practice tests.  I didn't take the LSAT 5 times like some people who I guess were using the "blind squirrel finds the acorn" approach.

you guys are the best!  i'm so overwhelmed with all the positive reponses!  thanks again so much!  we'll see what happens...i'm still waiting to hear from more schools.


you know, Rocky Balboa gave a really meaningful speech in Rocky 6. he said....

"What is it you said to the kid? The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very rough, mean place... and no matter how tough you think you are, it'll always bring you to your knees and keep you there, permanently... if you let it. You or nobody ain't never gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit... it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward... how much you can take, and keep moving forward. If you know what you're worth, go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit."


.........that's how winning is done.......

What the hell would you know about winning? Your best LSAT was a f-in' 154.

you lose at analogies. Teh 154 was "how hard you  can get hit." Wisconsin is the winning.

You mean Wisconsin is the really generous judge who wasn't watching the fight and the fighter in question getting his/her ass kicked?

hey kids....

i know this is the wrong board to be posting this. but i mostly post on this board anyways, so whatever....

i got my first letter of law school acceptance today!!!  i took the LSAT 5 times.  my scores were 150, 151, 152, 154, and one cancellation.  i have a 3.23 gpa from Penn State University.  my numbers are low, but i wrote a killer personal statement.  i got into University of Wisconsin - Madison.  I think it's a Top 30 law school.

just wanted to tell all you LSAT kids, that there is more than one way out of the jungle!  so if you're LSAT score sucks, find another way to get to where you want!

love,
lather

Not to be mean, but some people just seriously aren't cut out for law school.  You took the LSAT 5 times...I would have killed myself after that 152...possibly even after the 151.  How the hell you even got into UW-Madison is beyond me.  Pity perhaps? 

@#!* off.

The cold, hard truth sucks, doesn't it?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: UConn Law
« on: March 27, 2007, 06:52:28 PM »
I've gone to college in Hartford for the past 4 yrs and I can say that, yes, Hartford is not the safest city, but it depends where you are.    Certain parts are very crime ridden but some are not bad.  However, Uconn is located in a nice, SAFE, area on the Hartford/West Hartford border.  Most of the law students live in apts/houses right near the law school.  But if you do decide to live in Hartford, make sure you ask about how much your car insurance will be b/c its much higher in HArtford than West Hartford.

As far as Hartford itself, the parts where you would probably go downtown are pretty safe and well-lit --by the bars. Other than that you probably wouldnt go into Hartford too much to be honest.  There is virtually no shopping, and the better restaurants are within walking distance of the bars for the most part. 

.  A lot of Uconn law students also go to a bar/lounge called Tisanes which is right near the law school.  West Hartford center, about 5-10 minutes from the law school is also very nice with little shops and a lot of upscale restaurants.  It's very quaint with brick sidewalks, ect...
Thanks! I presume the car insurance is higher because there is a greater risk of it being stolen!?  ;D

Where should I go next fall? / UConn Law
« on: March 27, 2007, 04:31:28 PM »
I've heard things about living in Hartford and how it wasn't really all that great and that the city had some image/crime problems.  What have you guys heard of this? Any input from UConn students would be appreciated.

Studying for the LSAT / LG Answers Dec 2006

I'm not looking for explanations, I just was wondering if anybody had the ansers to the LG section from the Dec 2006 test.  I can't access it myself because the LSAC site is having issues, I suppose.
