Studying for the LSAT / Re: When is the ideal time to start studying?
« on: December 27, 2007, 02:48:49 AM »
two months of relaxed preparation, and two weeks of more intense prep...i did fairly well considering, and certainly very well for my purposes (as in, i could not care less about going t14, but am more interested in a few t30 schools and several lower/unranked schools in the area which will undoubtedly give me money based on my numbers). if you're looking to go to harvard, i would not recommend my study method, but hey, like i said, it worked for me.

how is cardozo for people who want to work out of state? i'm interested in criminal law, specifically prosecution, and i can see myself settling in nyc, but i'm from the boston area, and i love it here too, so i'm wondering...

Studying for the LSAT / Re: *** Dec 07 Scores Here ***

why is everyone so bummed about these decent scores? i guess maybe i never thought i was ivy-bound, but i got a 164, and i'm thrilled, because that makes me competitive at just about every school i'm applying to, especially with my gpa and other factors. i think everyone should be congratulating themselves, it seems like all the posters here did fairly well...

my so and i are going through the same thing. we've been together for about a year, and i'm applying to law school and he's applying to grad school. problem is, he loves uc berkeley, but i'm pretty set on staying on the east coast. the only west coast school i'm even considering is university of washington. he's also applying to harvard, columbia, penn and princeton, so it's not totally a loss, and he thinks he could be happy at harvard, etc (and i'm applying to several boston and new york schools), but when it comes down to it i wonder what will happen if he gets into berkeley and really has his heart set on it. i hate to say it, but if he's going across the country for school, this just isn't going to happen. i would never begrudge him  that opportunity, but there's no way i'm doing cross country long distance while i'm in law school.

so i feel your pain friend. sigh.

Thank Jebus for this thread.  My boyfriend of two years and I are both applying to school right now: I to law school, and he to design school (for his master's in landscape architecture).  We live in Philly now, and we're both dead-set on staying in or close to the Northeast, which is good.  However, he's only applying to three schools - UVA, Penn, and Harvard, which are not exactly easy to get into, for either of us.  I may have the numbers for the first two, but I seriously doubt Harvard will be within my reach.  To try to at least minimize the potential distance, I'm applying to a range of schools from Boston to Charlottesville (BC, BU, Fordham, NYU maybe, Penn, Temple, GULC, GW, and UVA are on the list right now).

But it's tough.  The application process for design schools is as qualitative as the law school app process is quantitative, so it's extremely difficult to say what will happen for him.  On the other hand, things will become pretty clear for me once the December LSAT scores are released.  Is anyone else in this boat (or a similar vessel)?

you know, cardozo, brooklyn law, st john's...i really can't decide. i would like to pick a ny "safety." i'm interested in criminal law, specifically in crimes against women and children. i'm torn! help!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: in trouble, etc

Are you asking if there's a magic way to guarantee a high score without preparing thoroughly?

not quite...i'm looking for advice from anyone who might have had a similar experience, or any productive or helpful tips for preparation work i could do in the next week. i'm fully aware of the fact that i won't wake up a week from tomorrow and nail a 180 just because i feel like it. i don't mean to sound sassy, but i'm fully aware of the amount of work that most people put into doing well on the lsats, and also painfully aware of where i currently stand.

Studying for the LSAT / in trouble, etc

well i just joined here because i'm very excited about heading (hopefully) to law school next year...

sadly, i'm taking the lsats in a week, and i feel drastically under-prepared. i've spent a couple months casually (and i mean casually...once a week, if that) through my lsat prep book. i had a good score on a practice test about a week ago, which was great, but did terribly on the one i took tonight. i realize that all signs point to screwed, and i should have probably prepared a lot better, but...coulda, woulda, shoulda. any way i can salvage this experience and still pull a decent score?
