Studying for the LSAT / what do you think
« on: March 04, 2008, 11:38:15 PM »
would it be a bad idea if i took the june lsat, prepping by myself? i am taking a prep course over summer with blueprint (i am ignoring all this litigation nonsense, my friend got a 174 and took blueprint) and am also planning on taking it in october. but i feel like i'll be really freaked out just having that one shot with the test. most of the schools i'm planning on applying to take the highest score, but a few do average. what do you think?

im probably going to end up with a 3.55 as well. how difficult would it be to get into Hastings?

Law School Applications / Re: The Law School Laptop

i havent looked at the past messages, so this might be redundant...

but i happen to work for the Information Technology department at UCLA Law right now, and MACs aren't really compatible with their exam software (ExamSoft), and if you have a MAC you should download BootCamp so you have dual OS's.  The IT dept. here also really are unable to assist students with MACs because we are on a Microsoft server and trained accordingly.  I agree, MACs are amazing - great battery life, faster, more safe from viruses, etc (btw i really want the MacBook Air!) but I would contact the IT department of the prospective law school you will be attending and ask them about what they suggest. The IT department at your law school can help you a lot with computer problems and it's helpful to know what they think you should get. :)

It is never a good sign when a tech worker begins calling Apple computers MACs. Jesus. Maybe if your department realized they weren't dealing with a Media Access Control (MAC) address then they might be able to help the students.


yeah that's exactly why we can't help students, because i capitalized a few extra letters. good one.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How much did/have you improved your LSAT score?

i took a practice test before any studying and got a 154...
i'm hoping that after a lot of studying and my prep course this summer it will go up by at least 10. is that impossible?

Studying for the LSAT / what books to buy
« on: February 14, 2008, 02:31:48 PM »
hey, i'm going to be taking the blueprint course over the summer for the october test, but i wanted to buy some books so i can kinda get started on my own earlier and just get acquainted with the test. my mom bought me a cliffnotes book and somehow i feel like that it's not gonna cut it. are the LSAC issued books any good? and does it matter what version i buy (i.e. the latest edition or from a year ago...it's quite a cost difference)? i was thinking of not bothering with the powerscore bibles b/c it's probably way different strategies than blueprint would teach me...right? any input would be most appreciated, thank you!

Law School Applications / Question...
« on: November 28, 2007, 03:36:18 PM »
I'm a junior at UCLA. I did a very stupid thing the beginning of my sophomore year and was put on disciplinary probation for a year. I know most law school applications ask about this and I'm wondering if this would really hurt my chances of getting into law school. The probation was resolved and it's supposedly "confidential." I asked our dean of students and he said that I have to say "yes" to the question because then it would "not be telling the truth." Any wisdom on this subject? By the way, I have a decent GPA that went up after the incident (I definitely got my act together) and I'm hoping to get a decent LSAT score when I take it in October. Any ideas or comments are appreciated!
