Woooohoooo!!!  A 153.  Actually an improvement over Sept's test.  Games saved my butt this time:  - 3.  RC was a little worse than I expected, as was the last LR section.

No worries though, I'm happy with my 153!!

I got mine.  I did worse than any practice test I ever took. :(

Keep your chin up.  The same thing happened to me in September and I retook.  Don't let it get ya down...see where you can improve upon and go from there.

I took the test in September at a community college.  After getting through about three or so sections, I found out there was some class being taught in the class next door to us.  To make it worse, the professor teaching the class loved talking loud and practically yelling to make his point...or whatever he was doing.  During break, one of the proctors went over and asked him to quiet down.  He did for a while, but started back up again pretty quickly.  When we started on the writing section, he played the Jeopardy theme song for a couple minutes.  Probably his attempt at humor...I'm just glad it wasn't during a "normal" section.

The one I took in December wasn't too bad.  Thankfully there were no classes being taught around us.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: BOX FILLED

My box is filled as well...I just checked a few moments ago.  This morning it wasn' it's just a matter of waiting...

So let me ask this:  Where would Pepperdine rank among the three already listed?  Putting aside whether or not I want to attend a school with a good entertaiment law would the four schools rank??

Why isn't Pepperdine an option?

Good point.  I had looked at Pepperdine before, but two things have kept me from considering them further at this point.  A)  Last I checked, the cost of tuition (somewhere around $38,000) was a little steep for me.  Granted, I might be able to get some scholarships, but I'm not sure if I could get any academic ones as my grades aren't extraordinary.  B)  From people who are familiar with the LA market that I've heard from, the job prospects out of Pepperdine don't seem to warrant paying the cost of tuition there.

Granted, the campus and area are absolutely incredible.  I don't think I have seen a better location for a law school than Pepperdine...

Edited:  I stand corrected, tuition is listed at around $33,000/yr.  Well, maybe Pepperdine is back in the running.

Law School Admissions / New Transcript This Semester??
« on: December 15, 2007, 05:13:55 PM »
So I already submitted my applications to several law schools during November, but now that this semester is overwith, my GPA has gone up significantly.  (Well, maybe not a lot...but still enough to possibly make a difference:  From a 3.26 to a 3.31)  What I'm trying to figure out is how to get this updated transcript not only to the schools I've already applied to, but also how to handle it with the ones I'll apply to in the coming days.

Should I send a new one into LSDAS and hope they can process it quickly, or should I just individually mail out transcripts to all the schools??  Thanks for the help ya'll.
