Studying for the LSAT / Re: Dec.LSAT scores
« on: November 06, 2008, 08:43:44 AM »
Ok, just came back to this thread. I looked at my Dec. test from last year and LSAC told us they were going to release the score on Jan. 2nd, but actually released it the Thursday before Christmas (which if I remember correctly was around the 22nd), this was typical from previous years from what I heard. I really think you'll get your score around the 22nd or 23rd. They gave us ours last year a day before their office closed for Christmas from what I remember.

Yes, actually they usually release them a couple days before Christmas.

I think you have too many reaches and not enough targets. I don't really think you have a chance at the t14, although maybe Cornell or GULC part time? You should be applying to schools ranked between 15-30 (or 40 if you're looking for a full ride). I also think you should add Emory to your list, get a 96k scholarship and enjoy (check out LSN...they gave tons of money to 165s and 166s). :) p.s. I maybe wrong since you're first in your family to go to college...that may help more than I think it does. Good luck!

So now we've got like half of our Civ Pro class in the same thread.  Classy, Emory.

I thought this was our contracts class... :)

Uh huh, I figured some of you were here with an Emory questions thread.  ;D I am wondering who Number81 is though...I'm betting I know but had no idea you were on LSD.

I have nothing useful to add for the 0L's, sorry. heh.

Oh, wait, I can add something. I love my professors, seriously. I have a few complaints (most of them voiced already) but definitely not with the professors or the courses. Overall, I'm loving Emory.

Also, a rather high percentage of our class were non-trads, most having worked 1-2 years for congressmen or as paralegals, that sort of thing.

And Emory is not a southern school, not at all.

Gowi, you know who Number81 is...he just changed his name on here...look at his LSN.

And for the 0Ls, Emory is great so far. I love my classmates, and there have been so many networking opportunities. The professors are great (especially the civ pro professors) and Atlanta is a really fun city with fantastic weather. :) Can't complain.

165's and 166's got a lot of love this year with scholarships. Emory gave me $32,000 a year, and I had a 165/3.74 (tuition is $39,300 i think), so with your numbers I would guess that you would get a significant scholarship based on what they gave out this year.

So I got a 157 with close to no prep (ahhh) in October. I've put a deposit down at a school I could do to, and I'm waitlisted where I want to go (this year). But I'm thinking about retaking the LSAT to get into the wait-listed school, and maybe even improve on that.

So since some schools average the scores and everything
, what type of score is 'worth' taking another year off? If I get a 160, only 3 points doesn't seem like enough to get me off of a waitlisting or into a new tier of schools, especially when it's going to be averaged. So at what point... 162....165, etc would it, in your opinion, become worth it?

Thanks. If this is vague I can add any information you want/need.

Most schools don't average scores anymore, they take your highest. Even many of the schools that say they do still average will typically take your highest if it is significantly higher. Start prepping seriously and after you've taken a bunch of practice tests, see what you're scoring. If it's a lot higher, taking the lsat again is definitely worth it. I took mine twice and scored 10 pts higher, I don't think a single school took the average of my scores.

FWIW, my score jumped 10 pts, I didn't include an addendum, and it didn't seem to affect my acceptances at all. My friend jumped from a 163 to a 171 and got into Georgetown and UVA, and got waitlisted at Chicago, no addendum. I really think if you get a 170, you'll be fine, even without an addendum (except at Michigan who requires them for certain score increases).

Who's voting for Joey? >:(

I voted for Joey...come on, he is definitely the least intelligent, and he seriously has got to have an STD by now.

Law School Admissions / Re: Withdrew TODAY !!

What do you say to withdraw from a school that you've been accepted to? It doesn't make sense to say that you're withdrawing your application, because you've already been accepted.

I'd like to withdraw from Cornell and USC today if I could figure out how to word the e-mails.

Just say you're "declining their offer of admission".

And I withdrew from W&M and IU-B today!
