Studying for the LSAT / Cause and Effect
« on: October 22, 2007, 09:17:42 PM »
Can someone provide an example of mistaking a cause for the effect as a flaw in reasoning. I know what the two terms mean and how they are applied, I just want a good example I can reference when I am presented with this answer choice.

Where should I go next fall? / Sit in on a Class??
« on: October 22, 2007, 01:02:02 PM »
I am not sure if this is the appropriate board for this discussion but I will give it a shot. Has anyone ever sat in on a class? How did it go? I am setting a sit-in up soon. The admissions coordinator said that he will notify me if I will need to prepare in case I get called on!!!! That would be my worst nightmare...getting called on and babbling...has that ever happened to anyone before? What was your sit-in like?

Studying for the LSAT / Prep Test 10 Feb 1994 Game 2

I cannot figure out what to use for my base for this problem! Do I use the reviewers or the movies? Am I going about it all wrong?

Studying for the LSAT / How do you take prep tests?
« on: October 17, 2007, 07:56:13 PM »
Have you ever photocopied a test and used it like the test booklet? I was just curious how different people take tests. Do you go to the same spot in the library that you got that good score? Do you get up early before the kids are awake and sneak a test? Do you take them at home? Starbucks? Is there a method to your madness??

Law School Applications / Score reporting on application
« on: October 17, 2007, 01:50:05 PM »
So I took the LSAT twice in 2003 and 2004. I did not do well and I mainly took it because I was graduating college and was freaking out. I did not study much and I paid the price. Well, I am going to take the test again in June 2008. This will be 4 years after the last time I took the test. I know the scores stay on your LSAC file for 5 years, but most schools only look at scores that are 3 years old. Should I report the 2003 and 2004 scores on the applications? I mean they are going to see them when they look at the LSAC files. What do you think?

Recommendations / Recommendation from Professor in 2004???
« on: October 15, 2007, 01:24:08 PM »
I graduated school in 2004. I am now applying to law school and I have located a professor that I had in 2004 that will write me a rec. Is this worth pursuing? I am able to get recs from employers I have had since graduating. How important is it to get a rec from a past professor? Should I have 3 recs from employers only?

Thanks.

Which would you suggest? I will be taking the test in London and I have located a tutor that will only charge 25GBP an hour and will refund half the amount if I do not score at least 50% of the remaining total points from my diagnostic to the real thing.

The other option woul dbe to take a full-length Kaplan course and take my chances.

What do you think?

Law School Applications / Applicant with special interest..
« on: October 11, 2007, 04:51:54 PM »
Do you think it matters one way or the other if an applicant is intersted in going to law school for partucular reasons? For example, I have a Social Work background and am interested in law because I see the need for certain policies to be changed and legislation that needs revising. I also am interested in Big Law and litigation. These are not my only reasons, but I wanted to know if having an application with a certain backgroud and interest hurts or helps you, or does it make a difference.

Thanks.

Law School Applications / How old can Letters of Reccomendations be?
« on: October 11, 2007, 11:43:27 AM »
I have asked this question to several law school admission staff and they all say that the LOR's need to be no more than 3 years old. The reason why I am asking this is because I am taking the test in June 08 and applying fall 09. I am about to leave my current job and my current boss has agreed to write a letter for me. Should I go ahead and get the letter ready and send it to LSAC? Or should I contact her a year or so from now and ask her then. The former option is appealing because what she will write about me will be fresh in her mind but the LOR will be 2 years old. The latter option makes the LOR more recent but runs the risk of not being as up to date and personal. Also, I do have the option of having her write the letter now and saving it until I advise her to send it to LSAC a year from now. What do you think?

Thanks.
