Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Best schools for OKC?

OU - no question. My motto is "keep your options open", and you won't have near as many options coming out of Tulsa or OCU. I'm from South Texas and there are quite a few OU alumni with great jobs. If you are at the very top of your class you will also have a shot at some good Dallas firms.

I know you want to stay in OKC, but I wouldn't recommend making that decision 3 years before you have to.

I got an email from WUSTL about a month ago basically telling me my app is complete. I would give my left pinkey for an acceptance; WUSTL is an incredible school.

Law School Admissions / Senioritis?

Does our last semester of undergraduate even matter if we are already accepted? All we have to do is pass right>?

I am completely unmotivated to do any schoolwork lately

Take it.

I took twice: the first time I studied tons the week. The second time I did nothing the week up except for a couple of games the night before. My score was 9 points higher the second time and I believe it's partly because I rested the week of the test.

Do you warm up before each test? If not, work through a game, a passage, and a couple of LR questions before you start. It will get your mind going so you don't lag during the first section.

Law School Admissions / UT In-State

I realize that since UT has to have 65% in-state students, and it is easier for TX residents to get in. Does anyone know how much easier? Are there any stats out there? I'm in-state with 3.2, 164, and really hoping for an acceptance.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: What should I do? kaplan (((

Think what you will about Kaplan but...

The reason your score went down may be because you are haven't quite gotten used to answering questions using the new methods you are learning. You won't get the benefit of the methods until you master them and they become second nature. I took Kaplan (raised my score 11 points) and know two of their teachers. For Kaplan to work you have to, first of all, get lucky and get a good teacher. Secondly, you need to put work into it and get down the methods. You already paid for the course, you might as well reap the benefits.....that is assuming you didn't get a horrible teacher; in that case just use their materials and don't go to class.
