Studying for the LSAT / Re: Dear Law School, Don't Tease Me!

Why would they release LSAT scores to schools before the students?...doesn't make sense at all. How would LSAC benefit from that?

Has anyones' mind been shifting back and forth from "Crap, I think I bombed the LSAT, I'm sure I screwed up so many questions" to "Yeah, I think I performed really well. I feel confident that I got a good score". This happens to me everyday, back and forth. It's driving me nuts.

Yeah, Harvard, Yale Stanford.

Yale is especially risky. As I understand it, they reject almost half of applicants with 4.0/180s.

Does that seem ridiculous to anyone else?

Law School Admissions / Re: LSAT Addendum or Not?

I really don't see why an increase in scores needs explaining at all. People have good days, and people have off days. To want someone to write an explaination as to why you scored better on one test over the other just seems ridiculous and unnecessary to me, almost like they don't really believe how you could have improved so much the second time.

Not long at all, mine took about a week.

Krystal, did you think you performed really well on the test or are you unsure? If you are unsure and think you may have done poorly, I wouldn't worry about it and just take it again, this time staying for the whole length of the test. If you think you aced it, then I am truly sorry this happened to you.

I wouldn't. That would sound whiny to me and make it seem like you are making excuses for why you got the GPA you got.

Isn't an addendum by its nature giving an excuse? I mean, some are better than others obviously, but if you weren't trying to justify something you wouldn't be writing one.

Well, I guess, but I just figured addendums were for things like past criminal charges and stuff like that, I didn't think an addendum should be written about the grades you got.

I think it depends. If your frat had parties every weekend then no, but say your parents died and you were left to care for a sibling and your grades tanked that semester. Idk how effective the "I wasn't mature at the beginning of college but now I am" will be.

That makes sense. When I thought about the idea of writing an addendum to explain grades I thought well what if this person partied all the time and didn't do their work, then there is no excuse for the grades that person got, but you are right, if something traumatic happened to someone and it caused their grades to slip then I think an addendum would be a good idea

:D Radiohead album!!  inrainbows.com Go download for whatever price you deem worthy(that's right, kiddies...you decide how much you want to pay!).  Your cochlea will rejoice as it is engulfed in auditory bliss, and your LSAT score anxiety will evaporate, if even for only about 40 minutes.  Support a forward thinking band and feel good doing it!  Those generous karma points will come in handy on score day! 

(this message has not been approved by radiohead, and is merely the result of the author's attention-distorting defense mechanisms provoked by LSAT score anxiety.)   

I got the album after reading your post...thanks for reminding me. How much did you end up paying for it? It's a really awesome album and it definitely makes me relax when I listen to it.
