I never looked at LGB, but thought 180 was worth it. They create questions that are supposedly harder than the real thing. The real benefit was that they include good explanations on why answers were wrong or right. I wouldn't recommed it if you are scoring below ~165 in practice tests.
Personal Statements, Resumes, and Letters of Recommendation / Re: Is there any detriment to having only 2 LORs?« on: July 28, 2005, 10:32:47 AM »
I only had 2 even though 3 was recommended. LSAC has a list under 'LOR Overview' on the LSDAS/LOR tab. They list all the law schools, how many LORs they recommend or require and how many they will accept. It looks like most either require 2 or recommend 3.

I figure after a year in the real job I will definetly be insane enough for LS
For me it averages about 2.5 years before I go crazy and start looking. This last time instead of changing companies, I decided to go back to school - looks like the insanity is getting worse.
I noticed the retake on your LSAT - nice job!

having been out for 15 years or so I agree with burgh. you can stay an engineer, work your 40 hours and make $70K - for the rest of your life in some places. as a former manager, 50-60 was the norm and 'leaving early' was after 8-9 hours. the higher you go, the more money, but the more you are on call, sometimes around the clock. the guy next door to me makes a good buck as a computer geek, but he was paged at 9:30pm on Sunday July 3rd while we were blowing off fireworks in the street. he had to go into work right then - it's all a trade-off and somewhere along the line you won't be willing to trade.
