Studying for the LSAT / LSAT prep courses....
« on: October 24, 2007, 09:29:12 AM »
Should you take the course the corresponds to the books you already used to prepare? I read the Powerscore books and I was wondering if it would make sense for me to take the Powerscore class. I think Powerscore's methods are good and I don't want to learn a whole new set of methods to answering questions, however, that could be a good thing I guess. For those who read the powerscore books and took a class, which one did you take? I've heard TestMasters is similar to Powerscore, but I am just looking for the best class that will build upon what I've already learned from the PowerScore books.

To answer question two, on a lot of applications I've seen, they ask if you if you want them to wait for another LSAT score to come in before reviewing your application, so yes, if you want, you can choose to have them wait until your second score comes in.

Law School Admissions / Addendum for low score?
« on: October 20, 2007, 01:48:39 PM »
I did pretty bad on the Sept. LSAT, I am going to take it again, but I am still going to send in some apps to some schools before that, using my September score. So should I write an addendum explaining my reasons for getting such a score and suggesting they weigh other factors more heavily? Or is that a bad idea that sounds like I am making excuses?

Me. Dismal score, similar to yours actually. I feel like December doesn't give me enough time to prepare enough to improve significantly. Taking it Feb, and I will apply for Fall 08 anyway even though I will be at a disadvantage because I will barely be meeting the deadlines.

Testmasters180 and Powerscore (which are almost identical classes) are the best.  The benefit of Powerscore is that they use the Powerscore books, which are really good.  No matter what class you take you should get the Powerscore books.

Yeah, I had the powerscore books, which is why I am so devastated...I thought they would have really helped me. But, like I said, I didn't prepare enough. I only went hard for about a month and half and only took 7 practice test...yeah, pretty stupid huh? In the next 3 and half months before the Feb test, I am going to take about 40 practice tests, re-read the powerscore books, and take a class, and hopefully I can improve significantly..

Yeah, there are schools I can get into with my score..not great ones, but schools nonetheless...I will probably use this score to apply to these lower ranked scores, then I will study for the next 3 and half months and take a class and if my score goes up significantly, I will either try to get in for Fall 08, but if it is too late, then I will have to wait til 09. But if there is no real improvement after that, I will just go to one of the schools I can get into and just work my ass off and hopefully transfer to the school I really want to go to.

First of, congrats to all those who got good scores. Can't say the same for me. I am devastated, as I'm sure are many others, with my score. I'm too ashamed to even say it but it isn't good enough to get into the schools I want. I was overconfident and thought I had prepared adequately. I was wrong. I am definitely going to retake, but I feel like from now til December is not enough time for me to improve enough where I can get a significantly higher score, which leads me to two questions:

1. Are classroom courses helpful? They are pretty damn expensive  I just want to know which ones are the best and if they are even worth the $1,000 plus you pay for them

2. I would obviously retake in February, I know trying to get in Fall 08 with February puts me at a disadvantage, so do any decent schools accept Feb LSAT scores?

3. Do any good schools have the option of beginning in the Spring term?

Thanks to all.

2LMichLaw, lets see your GF's screenshot of the score and scale. If you can't produce it, shut your mouth


This thread has got to be BS. If it wasn't, it wouldn't be taking these clowns over an hour to post a screen shot of their score and a the scale.
