Studying for the LSAT / Frustrated
« on: March 08, 2008, 05:41:05 PM »
I took a practice test today after not even looking at a study book since I took the test in December. I scored a 170, what I was averaging before I took the December LSAT. ARG!!! I take this as strong evidence that this is the range I should have scored at in December. Instead I became very anxious and ended up with a 160. And yes I have always used realistic timed conditions.

So I don't think I can be happy without giving it another whirl in June. If I bomb again I can go to Iowa this fall anyway.

What do I need to do to avoid another melt down come June? Should I not study so hard this time? I know it is realistic to expect a small drop on test day, but if I could even pull a 165-7 I would completely change my prospects.

I have six more apps out and I would like to hear some comments on my chances. The schools are: William & Mary, Boston College, North Carolina, Georgia, Ohio State, and Wisconsin.

I applied mid-January with a 4.0 and 160

Thanks.

Did you miss this?

P.S. I have already seen the JDUnderground link about how Iowa Law is so terrible. But I would like to hear some substantiative advice about the school good or bad

Thank you.

Denials / Re: Rejected at UC Berkley
« on: March 01, 2008, 11:06:45 PM »
Also it came to my permanent address rather than my mailing address. I thought that was weird and kind of irritating now I have to call my parents everyday and ask what kind of mail I have received.

Denials / Rejected at UC Berkley
« on: March 01, 2008, 11:02:29 PM »
I received my first rejection today and it was Berkley. It was expected but the optimist in me held out hope. I have shot 3 for 4 so far with 6 more to go. If I can get 2 or 3 of those I will be happy. If it helps anyone I have a 160 and a 4.0.

I am a nonresident. The june retake was my original plan but having a wife makes that option very difficult. She would have to have a job here and seek a job in Iowa City in case I do go there. I hate to wait a year but maybe I should reconsider retaking.

So what kind of job does a median student at Iowa land?

I know I should retake but I really don't want to spend more time than necessary working in food service and barely making ends meet. Also, I feel that Iowa is a good enough school for me to not need to wait another year. Especially if what the 1L said about employment is correct.
