Law School Applications / Re: Proofreader for a Why X Essay
« on: January 12, 2008, 11:02:13 PM »
i'll proofread it, but rest assured i will make it much better than it currently is and people sometime mistake that for harshness. i've been told by family members, friends, and even professors that i'm an excellent writer and i can make you statement as good as your limitations allow me to make it.

haha...wow...how humble of you! Well i'm not "an excellent writer" like this person, but I would be willing to read your essay.

Thruth, I was just looking at your LSN...what exactly are your amazing soft factors, if you don't mind my asking. I have good soft factors but I don't know if they are amazing like you.

Thanks

Law School Applications / Re: Should I go to law school?

i half agree with the banana..there's a myth that says if you go to law school you must become a lawyer..not so. Law school is much more than actually practicing...I say do an extensive research o what a JD dg offers, beside lawyering, like teaching, or public interest or politics...etc...look it up

my vote goes to UCI

Studying for the LSAT / How to get 170+ on LSAT
« on: January 04, 2008, 10:25:05 PM »
I'm a senior with a medium GPA:3.6 (hopefully improve with 2more quarters). I know if I can get a 170+ on the LSAT, I might actually have a pretty good shot at some top schools.

So what I really want to know is: what does it take to get a 170+ on the LSAT.

I'm planning for 3 1/2-4 months of intensive studying, but are there any specific or recommended tricks. Please let me know. Thanks peeps

what would the purpose of this be?

LSAC and LSDAS / Re: Boosting UGPA for LSAC...possible???
« on: December 29, 2007, 10:46:28 PM »
what do you mean by "I would have had a 3.13"...I too would have had a 3.9 if i studied harder for that final!!!

I say finish out undergrad as best as you can, and aim for a 170+ on the LSAT by studying your bum off!!

ok so currently i have a 2.88 ugpa calculated through this:

http://www.lawpad.com/gpa_calculator/

i would have a 3.13 but i had some personal issues this quarter and got a D and an F in two of my classes...really ruined my GPA... on that note i was going to go talk to my professors and ask if it was possible to get an Incomplete for now and then retake the course to get credit, since LSAC does count D/Fs into ugpa, while my school (UCLA) replaces the grades in calculating the GPA... hoping that this would boost my ugpa a bit...anyone ever able to convince a teacher to change a grade to incomplete??

BOOST #2!!!

Since the lsac counts all grades taken at every college into your ugpa, do you think it would be smart to go to my local jc, enroll in random courses that I am sure I would receive an A in (pre-calc etc), not report these grades to UCLA (no need) but merely report them when applying to law school to lsac, so it is counted into my ugpa and help me boost my gpa? smart? possible? opinions... (im sure some of you will condemn me for "cheating" or something, just want to know if its do-able) THANKS!

but is it really all about the money or doing what you like...I could careless about thousand dollars in loans...I;m not going to die from it... I'm sure I'm just a romantic, but I'd rather get a job that I love that pays *&^% than a job that I make 160k and all I do is boring paper work behind an overpriced desk...I'd rather be making a difference which I know already means I won't be making anything!!! That's why I'm going to marry a rich L.A. sugar daddy!!

i can't help but think that all this talk about jobless lawyers is simply fluff/ a scare tactic...I mean there isn't one field of law out there...and not all people who go to law school want to practice forever.

On the opposing view...I  know of people who have found jobs right out of law school (not top 5 or 1 or 15), pays well...not a 100K or anything, but well. Only greed Americans/people expect a 100k right out of law school..you might need to work at it.
