Okay, so my issue is that my LSAC Cum GPA is a 3.49, and I know that after this semester, if I send my revised transcripts it can be a 3.5+. I plan to send my applications in November, but is it possible for me to send a revised report from LSAC to the schools I applied to, with an updated GPA in January (or earlier if I get my transcripts earlier)? Also will I be charged for this? Do schools look negatively at this?

I don't mind. Pm it over, and I'll check it out, I'll send you mine as well.

I'm looking for someone to trade and critique my Ps with. Anyone interested? It's my First Draft, so I still think it needs some work.

Law School Admissions / Re: Resume, Addendum, or both?
« on: October 07, 2008, 04:20:53 PM »
Yeah I figured I should write an addendum, but should I also note in on my resume under Experience? My concern is that Law Schools will look at my resume, see that it is lacking and not really focus on the addendum. Also, if I talk about this in my personal statement should I still include an addendum?

Law School Admissions / Resume, Addendum, or both?
« on: October 06, 2008, 07:53:24 PM »
One issue which I would like to address in my applications is that up until recently I was responsible for taking care of my grandmother. It was a very time consuming period and not only did my grades in College suffer a bit (nothing major but I went from having A's Bs, and 2 Cs, to straight As), but I was unable to work. I feel this is important to address since job experience is a qualification most schools look for. My question is should I address this within the resume and place this as an experience? Should I write an addendum explaining what happened, what I did, and why I couldn't work? Or should I do both, chalk it up to experience in my resume and also write an addendum detailing my experience? I'm leaning more to just writing it in the addendum and talk about it further in my personal statement, but I would really like to hear other's thoughts on the matter.

All this though was irrelevant as a result of our awesome proctor. She was apparently new at how LSAT procedure worked so she would have us, at the start of each section, turn the page and we would have 1 minute to "read the directions". Since everyone knew the directions we basically got an extra minute in each section.

Wtf kind of BS is this?

I swear to god, our proctor undercounted our minutes. I believe we had an average of 33 per section...

I feel like this too.  I think we got shorted.  Everytime I read that someone got more time, it pisses me off  >:(

I'm sorry :(. I didn't say it to piss anyone off. The first time I took it I felt short changed as well. I guess I lucked out and I got an incompetent instructor...

Couple of interesting stuff happened in my center. First I almost wasn't allowed to take it because my LSAC form's stub didn't have anything written on it (it's supposed to have your number, and name so you can know it.). Even though it's simply for your own reference the lady kept on making a big deal about it till the main proctor told her it was ok. Then when I got seated I realized the seat wasn't for left handed so I had to ask for one, which took 15 minutes to get. The classroom was fine with the exception that it was in the nursing center so all across the wall were posters of wombs and surgeries regarding infants. Normally this would be fine except every time I looked up I saw a lovely picture of an abortion procedure. This didn't bother me at all though and a plowed through the test but apparently the same could not be said for the girl who sat in front of me. 15 minutes into the first section she just starts bawling, and saying she's not ready, and runs out crying. Again I ignored and persevered.

Another issue was we had a diabetic girl in our class who they made a big deal about her having a candy bar on hand in case her sugar went down.

All this though was irrelevant as a result of our awesome proctor. She was apparently new at how LSAT procedure worked so she would have us, at the start of each section, turn the page and we would have 1 minute to "read the directions".

I felt much better this time around. When I took it in June I felt uncertain and few days after had appendicitis so I was in terrible shape. This test I was much calmer since surprisingly I did well in June, so I came into this test with the mentality that I was already fine and this was just nitpicking.
Overall I don't think the test was hard. It had its parts but the sections themselves weren't overly difficult. I only had a problem with one part of the LR but I plowed through it. The RC was fine up until the damn China Talk story. I spent an hour reading one of the question and finally just gave up and up some Native American answer choice down. But overall the other stories weren't bad.  The games were fine up until the last one were I just froze and couldn't find a way to attack it. I answered the first two questions since they were easy enough, but just steamrolled down the D's for the last three. Damn Buses...

I think the curve will be hard, the questions seemed straight forward (not for me but in general) and the kind that if you know how to do them your set. In a lot of parts I was doubting myself just because I couldn't believe it could be such a simple question, and other times I was gouging my eyes because I couldn't narrow it down between two. I hoping for an easy curve but, I don't think it will be one.

RC was problematic for me too, but it was my own fault. I was on number 9 when I noticed my bubbling and questions weren't right. So I had to erase and go through it again to bubble right. I finished but I normally have time to go through it again and make sure my answers are right, and I couldn't this time.
