MSME - gotta believe it helped score high on the LSAT, hope it helps offset lower UGPA.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Simulating LSAT Environment
« on: August 13, 2004, 07:31:55 PM »
I practiced in the den, with the kids in the other room knocking on the door about every 20 minutes wanting to know if they could play on the computer yet.  Dogs barking everytime the doorbell rang, Sponge Bob playing too loud in the background, the phone ringing from my sister-in-law wanting to know where my wife was, etc.  Made the actual LSAT seem way too quiet - concentrating was a piece of cake though.

Try accounting.

Natural ability.  It's highly unlikely for a 155 tester to study their butt off and score a 170+.  You can either handle the logic or you can't.  Boosting a mid/high 160 score to a low/mid 170 score is a timing issue and not a problem understanding the questions.

BTW, them high SAT scores get you squat once you're working.  Salary and intelligence have little to no correlation.  It's who you know not what you do.

You would think with a half hour per question you would have scored better than a 172...

I remember this one.  I think you need the questions to figure it out because I believe they supply additional information.

This is a fairly straight forward linear type problem - the June test had this type, but typically you'll get a parallel problem - something like 10 reptiles in two rows of 5 cages etc.. which are a little harder to figure out.

Post the questions please and I'll offer what help I can.

Not to ruin your day, but I think you'll see harder than this in October.

Most schools use a rolling admission, meaning they admit people as they get the apps.  The longer you wait, the fewer seats available and the adcom will likely want to wait to admit the best applicants possible.  Thus, more competition for the end slots.  Since a lot of schools begin taking apps around 9/1 and end around April, (with a Dec LSAT) you'll hit the middle of the cycle when half the seats may already be filled. 

I'm banking on my age and WE to help add to the diversity of the class.  After 15 years as an engineer I can certainly add more than some fresh out of school nubie.  Leverage that self-employemnt bit - shows you're a leader and a self-starter that didn't want to spend the rest of your life in a cubical farm.  Age and experience will beat youth and enthusiasm. 

One last comment, a high LSAT will whitewash a low GPA.  If you can post a 165+ I would think this coupled with your experience would make you a valuable candidate.
