Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Fee Waivers = Better Shot?
« on: October 17, 2007, 11:07:05 AM »
I've received several Fee Waivers to well-ranked schools including W&L and Northwestern. Does this imply that they think I have a good shot at admission? Or, is this an attempt to up their number of applications, so as to lower their precentage of admitted students and appear more elite (of the 10,000 applications, we only took 100 people, etc.)?

Studying for the LSAT / Need advice QUICK- Kaplan has ruined my score!
« on: September 22, 2007, 03:01:35 PM »
Help! I need advice quickly! I didn't know this board existed until a week ago. Meanwhile, my attorney/boss told me that Kaplan was the best way to raise my score. So, I enrolled... before the class, I was scoring 158-159 pretty consistently... every week I "learn" more, my score drops. Today's test resulted in a 150!!! Should I take the LSAT in a week (if for no other reason, than to get my money back through their guarantee- unless somebody here knows if that's a scam too) OR should I forget about the money and postpone until December... studying under my own methods until then?

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Texas rankings
« on: September 19, 2007, 08:23:22 AM »
I have a 3.88 from undergrad. I'm currently prepping for the Sept LSAT and am scoring 153-155 (although I'm working extremely hard to get that up a few more points before then). I'm leaning towards staying in-state (Texas). There are 9 law schools in Texas: UT, SMU, Baylor, Houston, TX Tech, St. Mary's, TX Weselyan, South TX, and TX Southern. I'm not going to apply to UT (unless my LSAT miraculously comes up 10 points), but I will apply to all the others. Here's my question: are there any schools in that list that are considered so bad that it wouldn't be worth going to (as far as job prospects goes-- keeping in mind that I plan to practice in Texas). Note: this question speaks to reputation... not to US News' "tier" rankings. Thank you~
