Law School Admissions / Multiple LSAT Scores
« on: July 04, 2008, 09:22:33 AM »
I was just wondering if there was a listing anywhere that displays which schools average the multiple LSAT scores/which ones take the higher score?

The biggest reason people score lower on the real thing is nerves. This is especially true if you got most of your wrong answers at the end of the sections, meaning you panicked over time and weren't concentrating on the questions. The best thing you can do (other than practice practice practice) is taking as many practice tests in timed, test-like conditions. Look up and take as many practice tests offered in your area by companies like Kaplan and Princeton Review as you possibly can. Usually they're free because they're trying to get you to take their courses. By practicing in these conditions, you can get confidence in a actual-test situations and won't get the drop from whatever you're scoring on practice tests at the time.

On test day, do everything you can to keep your confidence up the entire time - but I'll save detailed advice on that for closer to the day.

GOOD LUCK! You can definitely do it - if you can get those scores on practice tests, you can certainly get them on the real thing.

This is actually what I was doing before the June exam. I took a Kaplan course at school and had been going to my Kaplan center 2 or 3 times a week to do 'proctored' tests. (They give me the test and a timer and put me into a room and let me take it under 'real conditions'.)

I think that I am going to take the week or two off before the exam to just relax and let everything sink in, I think that may help. Anyone else have any advice?

Studying for the LSAT / Fall Plan of Action...

So probably like a few of you on this board, I was not happy with my June LSAT score. I was getting my practice tests between 163-169 without fail, and on the actual test I scored a 159. I really know that I can do better then this and plan on preparing myself accordingly for the October 4th test...

I had been studying for 3/4 months before the June test, devoting a good amount of time to the test each week. I plan on ordering the Logical Reasoning Bible for help in that area, but otherwise does anyone have any reco's for a study plan. I dont know if I have it in me to devote the amount of time I was doing before hand, but I realize that I need to do a good amount of studying to keep myself fresh for the October test.

With all that said, any help that can be offered from you guys would be great.

Thanks, and I hope the rest of you who took the June administration faired as well as you hoped!

For those that were in Manhattan and looking for a good test center, I thought Fordham Law School was great. Good temp for AC, the proctors were great and got us underway quickly and efficiently, and the desks were big long tables so we had plenty of space. Definately reccomend it.

Studying for the LSAT / Monday and your Cell Phone
« on: June 15, 2008, 07:14:06 AM »
I know that your not supposed to bring your Cell Phone to the test site techincally, but I was wondering what would happen if I did? I am taking a train into NYC (I live 25-30 min outside NYC) to take the test at Fordham Law, and it would really be beneficially for me to have my phone with me? Do they just take the phone away and give it back to you afterwards? Can I just leave it with the proctor at the front of the room? Thanks...

*Good luck to anyone else taking it on Monday*

Im in for Monday...Aiming for the mid 160's, seem to be around there +/- a few with my practice scores. Getting a bit anxious for the test now, hopefully that goes away as the test comes! Cant wait for Monday night to be finished.

Good luck for everyone else!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Kaplan Course vs Princeton Review Course

After all the September scores have been released, does anyone have anymore comments on either course? Im just looking for some advice so I dont waste my money on one of these courses.

Studying for the LSAT / Kaplan Course vs Princeton Review Course
« on: October 15, 2007, 06:37:51 AM »

So im a junior in college right now and i have started preparing myself to take the LSATs in the spring, I believe the June test. Currently I am studying abroad so my preparation for the LSATs have slowed just a bit. When I return home however, I was interested in one of these two courses that are offered up by my school. I was just wondering if anyone has had any good/bad experiences with these two companies? If the courses help and if not, are they worth the money?

Thank you for all of your advice in advance.

Law School Admissions / School where you want to practice
« on: March 25, 2007, 09:43:39 AM »
Hey everyone,

Im very early on in my law school search and the whole process. Im currently a Sophomore and planning on attending law school in the fall of 2009. I was feeling ambitious this morning, however and I wanted to look around at law schools to get a jump on things. I was just wondering, ive heard that it is important to go to law school where you want to practice. Is this true? I am really interested in some of the Washington DC area schools but being from NY and wanting to live in NY later on in life, would this be a problem?

Thank you for the help!
