Law School Applications / Better to apply now before retaking LSAT?
« on: September 02, 2009, 11:56:47 PM »
I'm just wondering if it may be better to apply now to a school that is accepting applications Sep.1.  I'm retaking the LSAT Sep. 26.  If my previous LSAT score is not that great, would I be better to just wait and apply in mid October with my new score (assuming it will be a little better) or apply now and notify the school that I will be retaking the LSAT.  Sorry, a little confused about this whole process!  Thanks for any help.

Ok.  Thank you.  That's what I was thinking.

Law School Applications / Include every school attended in resume?

Should I include every college attended in my resume or just the degree granting college?  One reason that I ask is that I have been to two other colleges (several years ago) and did very poorly, but have done great at the one I will be graduating from in May.  I know the schools will be listed on my LSDAS report, but I'm wondering if I should just try to draw as little attention to them as I can by leaving them off of my resume.  I would appreciate any of your thoughts.  Thank you.

Recommendations / What does letter of recommendation form look like?
« on: August 16, 2009, 05:22:47 PM »
I haven't printed these off yet, but before I ask a professor to write a letter for me, what type of information (if any) are they required to fill out on LSAC's letter of recommendation form?  I've heard that there is some type of questionaire they are supposed to fill out that gives law school's a better idea of how they know me.  Is this true?  Anyway, just curious what the form looks like that I am supposed to take to them.  Thank you for any help.


Studying for the LSAT / Re: Has the LSAT gotten easier?

I hope that's true.  I've been practicing for the June LSAT and just took a practice test from 1995 yesterday and scored a few points lower on it than I usually do.  To me, I thought the games sections was a little harder.

I'm glad you pointed that out.  I was looking at  They even sent me a very nice looking packet of information that told all about their courses.  However, when I called them, they told me they only offer the internet courses.

Anyway, I just got off the phone with the people at and you are right!  Thanks.  I almost signed up with the Princeton LSAT course instead.

I requested an information packet from Testmasters and received it a couple of weeks ago.  When I called them to register for an in-classroom class, they told me that they no longer do that.  They told me that all they do is the online class now.  Does anyone have any experience with the online class?

Law School Applications / Re: What makes an application complete?

Thank you for that information.  That's very good to know.  I started off college with a low GPA but have been drastically pulling it up over the last two-three years.  My GPA should be a little higher by the time I graduate and I wish they had my final GPA number to go by, but maybe the school(s) will see a trend in my grades and take that into consideration.  Anyway, thank you.


Law School Applications / What makes an application complete?
« on: February 24, 2009, 02:43:41 PM »
I am planning on applying for law school this coming fall, for Fall 2010.  However, I will not graduate from college until May 2010.  I know that several law schools I have read about state that my application should be complete by such and such a date, in order to receive the best chance of getting in.  My question is, will my application not be considered complete if I have not taken 100% of all college classes by the law school's priority deadline?  Are my chances of acceptance not as good as someone that graduated the year before?  I'm not very clear on how this works, but I do want to make sure I have all my ducks in a row.  I really would appreciate any help.  Thank you.


Nevermind, I misread your post.  Planning on taking the LSAT in June anyway.  That should work out ok.  Thanks again.
