Studying for the LSAT / Re: Be Constructive and Help the Retakers!
« on: October 25, 2008, 07:26:11 PM »
So I'm willing to help future retakers!

I took the test in June and got a 170.  I retook in October and got a 174.  Here's what I recommend:

1) Do your schoolwork.  I read my assignments (philosophy) and read political news every morning.  My reading went from -5 in June to -2 in October.

2) Cut down your time-limit for each section.  On the few preptests I did do, I gave myself 30 minutes instead.  I think this paid off for LR in particular.

3) Don't stress.  If you've taken the test once, you have a score (hopefully not too far from what you originally aimed for).  For me at least, the difference in stress between October and June was huge.  I think that really paid off as well.

Finally, on the day of the test I walked out feeling no better than I had in June and figured my score would range from 168-172.  In other words, think hard before cancelling!

Yes, 4.03.  With 4.03/172, you should apply anywhere and expect to get in at all schools with the possible exceptions of Yale and Stanford.

For Cornell though, we do have to print out the Dean's Rec and have it sent, correct?  But we can just do LORs online through LSAC?

Law School Admissions / Chances (with Oct retake)
« on: October 25, 2008, 09:18:58 AM »
2 yrs at CC, 2 yrs at top LAC
downward GPA trend  :(

CC GPA: 3.88
College GPA: 3.2

June LSAT: 170
Oct LSAT: 174

Worked throughout college, first gen student, volunteer tutor throughout, pres. student govt. at CC

Top choice is NYU, but worried still about the potential that they will average my LSATs in combination with my GPA trend.  Will be including addendum basically saying that college GPA would be closer to 3.45-3.5 had I not taken and received the average grades for upper level math courses.

I'd say the RC was comparable to June, but slightly easier.  LG was without a doubt harder.  LR about the same.

June curve was -10.  I'm betting -10/-11 for this one as well, and leaning towards 11.
