Studying for the LSAT / Re: Should I take a speed reading course
« on: May 23, 2007, 10:28:27 PM »
are u an english as second language student?
If you are, you might try memorizing some "SAT vocabs." Some passages / LR section questions are very difficult to understand without knowing some crucial words.

It seems like their admission probability is much inflated than I expected..

I appreciate people's insight, and I do agree that liberal arts is AMAZING. my business program is a 2 year program, so I actually spent more time studying polisci, hardcore econ and humanities (for those who are wondering if business programs are easier, I got much more A+'s as a Polsci concentrator than at the busines school). Case studies + theory application integral to business education does a fine job in developing education that liberal arts is weak at teaching.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: The Test Day logistics

that was a lot of insight. Thank you bunch :)
I know this was mentioned in other posts, but do the proctors strictly enforce rules? I am so used to my timer, taking it without it would be a real disadvantage...

Studying for the LSAT / The Test Day logistics

Can anyone who has taken the exam give a sense of what to expect on the test day:
1. how close you sit next to other students,
2. What happens in between sections (I know there is a 10~15 minute break after section 3, but what happens between section 1 and 2, and 2 and 3? is there a couple second break?)
3. anything else that might be informative :)
thank you

I don't think my GPA gives you sufficient warrent to conclude that it is easy to get a good grade in my program. In fact, median is set at a B-, which is very harsh since only students who are top notch are admitted into the program. (literally, the freshmen admits had an average SAT score that will get them into HYPS).

Miss Celies Blues, do you think it is better for me to write an addelum, or try to suggest my recommenders to write it? Several admission officiers (Duke, for example), specifically knew and said they had a strong like for our graduates..

Law School Admissions / Undergrad Business Majors Disadvantaged?
« on: May 19, 2007, 02:21:44 PM »
A lot of publications out there seemed to lump business majors with "vocational" majors, who are looked down upon by admission officers. I have talked to dean of admissions from Harvard, Chicago, Michigan, and Virginia, who all expressed that that is not true. I do know that Michigan Law School likes to see Michigan undergrad business majors, but as for other top schools, how much truth is there to this generalization? Personally, I go to one of the most competitive business programs (or any program in general), and I think it's unfair that we are given disadvantage.
