Studying for the LSAT / Re: Please tell me i'm not the only one getting
« on: October 17, 2007, 12:37:50 PM »
emails from 4th tier schools  :-\

You're not. A lot of people are getting them. I think they are just spamming. Some people on here with really high GPAs and LSATs are getting them.

go to the Account Status tab...then go down to LSAT on the pulldown menu.

you may or may not have dashes...only those who get above a 166 (the 95th percentile) get them.

No dashed lines...should I killself now?

No, the dashes don't mean anything.

Law School Applications / Re: transcript processing, how long?

Check your academic summary report. The same day I got the email saying my transcript was received, my academic summary report was already up. Click on academic summary report, your LSAC GPA is the Cumulative GPA.

Are you talking about the big fed ex cardboard envelopes where you tear off a strip of the cardboard to open it?

Recommendations / Re: LOR question

Also, should I provide my recommender with a self-addressed stamped envolope addressed to LSAC? Or should I provide a self-addressed stamped envelope addressed to me? It would seem that the first option would be much quicker, if he just sent it right off to LSAC. What has everyone else done?

Recommendations / LOR question
« on: October 16, 2007, 10:12:15 AM »
Does it matter if we enter a recommender's info into the LSAC website? What I mean is, I printed out an LOR form and down at the bottom it has those blocks side by side where the recommender can write in his information. But if you go to LOR on LSAC.org and you click 'Add recommender' you can type his info in, and then the LOR form will have all the recommender's info and no blocks. I guess this is just easier for the recommender, but is it necessary?

Has anyone actually had a panic attack, like a real panic attack worrying about the LSAT? I had gone my entire life without getting one until recently. So much anxiety has built up in me since taking the LSAT and anticipating my score. I was sitting in a movie the other night and I was still thinking about my LSAT score and my heart started to beat super fast and then I couldn't breathe and I felt like I was going to have a heart attack. Then on another night I was working out (something that is supposed to combat anxiety) and I felt like I was getting a panic attack because I was thinking about my score. The LSAC really likes to mentally torture us.

The last sentence doesn't follow from the premises.  It could be the test-writers (usually professors that work as free-agents for LSAC) that like to torture us.

At my alma mater, a philosophy professor worked part-time on LSAT questions.  His philosophical interests?  Frege and Number Theory.

Well, the last sentence could follow from the premises, when I said they like to torture us, I meant by not releasing our score sooner than later. The premises stated I have this constant worry about my score. If I had it sooner, I wouldn't have as much anxiety. It is the LSAC that has the power over releasing the scores. Because of that, I have anxiety, which leads to panic attacks. But nice try picking apart the argument LSAT style.
