Recommendations / Out of school for 4-1/2 years... where to get LOR?
« on: April 11, 2013, 11:06:12 AM »
My question is fairly straightforward. In terms of my letters of recommendation having maximum impact, should I include one from my professional history and one from academic? I am confident I can meet with a past professor or two and get one to write a good letter (I think I was a memorable student in these classes... but it WAS 4 or more years ago).

I also know I can get one or more excellent LOR from professional sources.

What are your experiences with a significant time (4-5 yrs) post-grad on academic LOR?

Thanks in advance!

Studying for the LSAT / Diving-in, head first!
« on: April 11, 2013, 10:33:21 AM »
Good morning -- I have registered for the June LSAT and I'm ready to DO THIS. I've got 20 preptests from LSAC and the Princeton Review book for a start. I've taken my first practice test and will be analyzing my weaknesses tonight (have not scored it yet as I was still taking the test at around 11pm and hadn't eaten ... haha).

I'll be self-studying, so unfortunately I have to rule out the more intense / beneficial Princeton Review courses... but does anyone have experience with the Self-Study PR course? It's like $500, and that seems reasonable if it's truly worth it. Thoughts? Or any other advice you'd like to offer?

My GPA from undergrad isn't stellar [2.8] so I really need to bank on an excellent LSAT to get into a good school. I've been in the professional world for about 5 years now, so perhaps that will help me out. No idea what that counts for tbh, but hopefully it's a positive and not a negative.

Just wanted to introduce myself. So HEY! And ... LET'S DO THIS!

Thanks in advance!
