I'm in Nevada and we got a form, but it was a just a form for their name with a blank space after for their recommendation.

Does the LSAT exam give you a score as well?

General Board / LOR for Bar
« on: March 15, 2011, 02:47:53 AM »
Does anyone have a sample they can give me of a LOR for the Bar Application? My LOR people don't know what to write and I can't seem to find any on the internet. Google just turns up fake results. Any help, sample, or guidelines would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Re-taking the LSAT is definitely an option. Also, taking a year off won't be a negative thing. I did it and got into a T1 just fine. Bit of advice if you do decide on attending a school offering scholarships (full ride or otherwise), be careful of the conditions. For example, a lot of them state you have to be in the top X percent or maintain a certain GPA. For GPA, you'll want to figure out what kind of curve your scholarship school grades under. If say, a 3.00 is required, but the school grades on a C curve, you would have to be way above average to get a 3.00. So be wary and do your homework. Good luck!

You might want to just consider ordering the LSAT tests from the source. Also, if you're having trouble with logic games, I highly recommend the Powerscore LG bible.

If you need additional info, a lot of law professors post their research on

General Board / Re: MPRE Questions?
« on: March 03, 2011, 04:06:47 PM »
Depending on the state you are taking the bar for, the MPRE requirements differ. But CA, one of the highest numbers only require that you get a little less than half of the questions right. Keeping that in mind, I only studied for about five hours for my test and got something like 120. Not super high, but still way above what you need to pass. (I was pretty sure I was gonna fail but I'd stacked too many deadlines on to allot enough time to study)

Bike Pilot is spot on. Just pick up a Kaplan or BarBri book and do the practice questions/read the explanations. Having taken a PR class, passing this shouldn't be too hard.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Buying books from Amazon/
« on: February 24, 2011, 08:11:18 PM »
I've always bought my books off of Amazon and and have never had a problem. There was one time I sold a contracts book on Amazon and the seller tried to return it a month after class started. I, as the seller, didn't want to return their money because there was no way I could sell it a month after classes started but Amazon let them anyways. So, in conclusion, Amazon is awesome for the buyer and not so awesome if you're the seller. Ironically, I've been a more loyal person of amazon since because I know that they will protect me even to the detriment to their sellers.

Personal Statement / Re: first draft, any feedback appreciated!

You might want to tweak your opening paragraph. I mean, I got the context of it later, but "the protagonist" at the beginning was a bit disorienting. Let us know you're talking about a movie. Give us a setting in which the "protagonist" comes from.
