Minority Topics / Re: LSAT Minority Statistics
« on: June 29, 2007, 01:31:25 AM »
Other than the information here:

Does anyone know of more information regarding minority performance on the LSAT?



The single worst thing I read today. Did you see the Hispanic, Mexican-American average? Jesus christ I felt bad for not putting Mexican-American just to help with the stats.

The most disturbing part to me:

Canadian and foreign test takers have had slightly higher mean LSAT scores than test takers from the United States.

My guess would be because only the cream of the crop, relatively speaking, of Canadians and foreign students either A. want to go to law school here or B. are in a position to do it (academically or financially).  You're not getting a representative sample.

And by a minority in Newark you mean what exactly?

Studying for the LSAT / Powerscore Weekend Course
« on: June 28, 2007, 11:06:15 AM »
What do you guys think of this?  I've already taken the LSAT twice and think to reach my goal I'll have to take it for a third time.  So I guess it's fair to say I'm not really an LSAT noob.  I just wanted to know if there would be any really big disadvantages in taking the weekend course for a person like me as opposed to the full length course. Thanks.

Law School Applications / Re: Should I disclose speeding tickets?
« on: June 27, 2007, 11:53:42 AM »
Don't most law school applications ask the question this way:  "Have you ever been convicted of a crime not including speeding/parking tickets".  On a related note, tickets aren't crimes or offenses, I think they're what's called statutory infractions or something to that effect.

Law School Rankings / Re: U. of North Carolina- Chapel Hill
« on: June 25, 2007, 12:15:07 PM »
For the most part I think a lot of the USNEWS rankings are copouts.  I mean...7 or 8 law schools tied with UNC?  It seems like they just said to themselves "ok..we need some place to put all these big state institutions" let's just lump them together here. They did the same thing last year.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / LSN
« on: June 20, 2007, 12:16:22 AM »
I know that the averages and what not there are a bit off because it is a self-selecting sample, but in some cases it's absolutely ridiculous.  For example, the average numbers for the students accepted by UCLA are 3.73/170....that seems way overblown to me.  That doesn't jive with what their website says at all.  Ultimately I supposed I'm asking how seriously I should take the numbers I'm seeing on LSN.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Scale ?

february tests are undisclosed.

I was hoping somebody here would have taken and would be willing to share ;)  Surely sharing the just the scale is no big deal.

On a related note, does anybody have the scale for the February test from this year?

I'm thinking -11 for 170.

Hell, if the scale wound up being the same was the one from Dec' 06 (for whatever reason...namely difficulty) I'd be pretty happy, because I think that was a pretty forgiving scale, relatively speaking.
