Studying for the LSAT / Re: Teaching LSAT prep.
« on: December 04, 2007, 12:05:49 PM »
I can only speak to my experience teaching the LSAT for one particular test prep company, but you'll need to qualify with a certain range of scores (for the elite LSAT-only prep companies, that's usually between a 170 and 180, whereas for others it's the top 5 or 10 percent.)  After that, you need to prove you can teach something, go through a normal interview, and train rather extensively.

Then, the hours and pay are both great - you choose when and where you teach, and you can teach as little or as much as you want, depending on the availability of classes and/or tutoring students!

Feel free to PM me for more info.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Why does the February test have such a bad rep?
« on: December 04, 2007, 12:03:23 PM »
From what I've heard, I know that the February scores are traditionally the lowest of any administration throughout the year.  That being said, I've heard two explanations for that - either the typical test-taker in February is less inclined to get a good score, or the test itself is somehow different than other administrations.

I have heard from several people I trust that the LSAC tends to use the February test to try out new things - perhaps new phrasings of old question types, etc.

Law School Applications / Re: Fordham Status Check Website Update
« on: December 04, 2007, 12:00:04 PM »
When did you all put in Fordham applications?  It's been a good 2-3 weeks for me, and I haven't received any correspondence from the school acknowledging that they've received my application, or anything like that.  Should I be concerned, or is this turnaround time normal?

LSAC and LSDAS / GPA Within Major
« on: December 04, 2007, 11:56:12 AM »
When the LSAC summarized my GPA on its official transcript, it didn't report my GPA within my major (i.e. only political science courses, as I am a poli sci major.)  Within my major, I have a MUCH better GPA than my overall.  I'm considering simply calculating it myself, and including it in my resume as a detail in the education section, where I list the universities I attended.

Does anyone know of a reason why this would be a bad idea?

Personal Statement / Re: format! please
« on: December 04, 2007, 11:53:01 AM »
I asked a few people about this, and the only thing I heard is that it should be double-spaced.  I created a header with my name, LSAC Account Number, and social.  As far as margins, I've never heard of any conventions - I just used 1 inch all around with no gutter.  I think the most important thing is name/LSAC account number, because it will certainly help whoever reviews your application keep track of who you are.

Recommendations / Re: Reading your letters of recommendation?
« on: December 04, 2007, 11:47:41 AM »
I got to read two of mine because the recommenders simply offered me copies - the other two I'm still in the dark on.  I believe that legally, everyone is entitled to read their letters, but you're expected to waive that right.  I think a lot of recommenders might think less highly of someone who insists on reading their recommendation.
