I'm no expert at this but I'd def. throw Northwestern on that list due to the WE

I agree with MCB. As a black male, I still treat my grades and will treat my LSAT score as if I'm an average applicant. Regardless what boost URM's get, I'm still gunnin for 4.0/180. That's just my perspective on the whole thing
Congrats on the job Sands and thanks for the updates on your progress. I log on here every couple of hours each day to see if you posted something new It's nice to hear the daily routine from the perspective of someone I can relate to..keep it goin man

Thanks alot everyone for the advice. So I take it alot of you guys studied on your own as opposed to taking classes? Also, when do you guys think is a good time to take the LSAT raw, just as an indicator?

Wow Rockstar that LSAT is pretty impressive. Leads me to a question I've been meaning to ask...what's you guys opinion on the best way to prep for the LSAT? I'll be graduating in 09 with a Poli Sci major and Economics minor. I plan on working for a year or two while also taking a prep course for the LSAT. Good plan? Bad plan? Any suggestions would help.

Don't mean to be controversial but this goes against every piece of advice I've seen on LSAT prep on all the LSAT boards.
I think you kinda over-analyzed his post just a lil. Seemed like pretty sound advice to me.
I'm a junior in UG right now and I'm trying to figure out whether I want to work for a year after graduation or apply directly to law school out of UG. If I do take the year off, I'll likely work full time and take a prep course for the LSAT, or if not I'll probably start studying for the LSAT Spring of my junior year and apply after graduation. My main question is, will the WE for a year make a big difference for my app? I know GPA and LSAT are basically the main components of the app but how much will WE help?

Well here goes. I'm a black male (just figured I'd get that out the way) I'll be a junior in the fall at SUNY Binghamton. Very much interested in a career in law so I'm pretty much watching you guys and getting a feel for what life will be like when I start the LS admissions process. I've learned more and my interest has grown more from being on the BLSD forum than from any of the numerous lawyers I've talked to, so thanks for that people. I'll try to get a little more integrated into the forum soon, just need to get my intellectual chops up a little before I start jumping into any of the numerous heated discussions you guys get into
And hello to everyone!
