Studying for the LSAT / Re: ? about cancelling LSAT score BEFORE the test
« on: October 09, 2007, 06:27:02 PM »
Just wondering if anyone could answer this for me...

I originally signed up to take the June 2006 LSAT without doing my homework and quickly realized that I would not be ready for the exam. I submitted my paperwork a week or two before the test (early enough for the partial refund) to tell LSAC I would not be taking it. Since I was studying abroad that fall, I wasn't able to prepare adequately until this year--just took the September 2007 LSAT. Anyway, my question is this: will my June '06 snafu appear as a cancellation on my LSAC report to law schools? It does show up as "No score available" or something like that in my account, but I was just wondering if it would appear any different than for someone who took the exam and decided to cancel afterward.
Hope that makes sense. Thanks for your help!

don't worry about it, nothing is going to show up as long as they received it that week.  you're fine!
oh good news! thanks.

Here's my idea: for right now, I'll just keep the list of people who are willing to trade PSes.  A lot of us are on earlier drafts right now, and want feedback to help send us in the right direction.  So in this thread we can find people with whom to exchange the things that we're still working on: resume, addenda, diversity statements, PSes.

In a couple of weeks I'll organize a "full package" group of 5-10 people.  My vision for how this would work is that everyone would compile their PS, resume, and any other written attachments into one .doc file.  Maybe even our UGPA and LSAT score, just for realism :).  Everyone can send those documents to me, and I'll distribute them to the entire group in one email with attachments (so we don't have 1,000 emails clogging up our inboxes).  Each participant will read and consider everyone else's package and email their comments (would this be better to email each person individually with comments, or for each person to compile their comments about all of the packages and send it to the entire group?  The latter way, it will be a little more like an adcom, and that would open up doors for discussing what worked and what didn't in everyone's packages..)

Anyway, the whole-package thing will be a bit of a commitment, but I think it could be really valuable and useful too.  What say you?

Hi. I'm new to the board, but am interested in joining this group if that would be alright...I would definitely appreciate any reviews of my PS...that is when I finish, hopefully soon. How do I partake in this?
