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.

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.

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?

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?

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.

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.
