I am planning to go to law school. Knowing my skills in test-taking I decided to go ahead and take the LSAT. I just recieved my scores and it is a 140. This is without much studying and preparing. I am sure I'll have to go again. I am planning, if possible, to go to law school where I am currently working on my undergrad. The average score for law students there is 154. I guess I am asking your opinion before I visit my pre-law advisor, just so I go in with a little educated knowledge.
140 jesus. you're smarter than that. spend about 6 months studying and retake.

now you ready tackle how wipe your heinie?
First step is, to take a nice dump. For the best results, don't make it runy, because that will effect how efficient you will be able to wipe your behind.
Now you are ready to wipe! Depending on how thick or thin your toilet paper is plays an important role in sheet selection. If it is very thin, you may want to take a sheet or two more, but if it is thick, well yeah you get the picture. But anyway, let's assume it's normal thickness. A good amount to pull out for the first wipe is about 4 sheets. (sometimes more if your ass is real nasty from a wet turd)
After pulling out the required amount, you fold it in half longways, twice. This gives you much more strengthening for the first messy wipe. Usually, on the very first wipe, I just do one sweep, and then toss it in. But if you aren't too messy, you could get away with a wipe, folding it in half, and then wiping a 2nd time.
After starting off the first few wipes with 4 sheets, you will be able to go down to just 3 sheets. This will be the normal process. Wipe, fold, wipe, toss. Now if you're lucky, you can get away with 3 wipes in one trip. Wipe, fold, wipe, fold, wipe, BAM 2 points! This requires much care not to get poo on your digits. Only seasoned pros can pull this one off.
PART 2 - Technique
I don't know what other people do, but when I wipe, I rub it in there a few times nice and hard to get as much as I can in one swipe. Just gotta be careful not to rub too long, or the a-hole fairies will nibble on your pinky.

first 3, before the break. if you get 3 LR, 2 RC or 2 LG in those 3, one of those is for sure the experimental.

Title says it all. No softs, except I worked through my college career. URM = black, male. 1st gen college student.
Would like BU or BC. Retake or apply?

What's the one piece of law school (and/or law career) advice you wish you had been given (or, that you got and wish you had taken)?"how are you coping with the loans now? Did you pay most of them off?
Knowing what you know now, would you still have chosen Chicago? I assume you got, or could've gotten, significant money at more regional schools; did you make the right call to go with the name?
The LLM route sounds very scary. I guess I'll just try to get a NYC job if my grades aren't hot."
I was fortunate insofar as I was unfortunate enough to be in major financial need. Chicago came through for me with a large scholarship that matched what was offered me from most other schools. The first thing I thought when I got my LSAT was, "I can get full tuition to Thiomas Jefferson!" No kidding. On the other hand, I had to take out more loans for the LLM. Totalling about 145k, I pay about 1/3 my salary in loans. It hurts.
I am glad I chose Chicago. While in the LL.M. program I got more interviews than anyone else thanks to that name. Essentially, once I stopped competing with other UofC grads it made a huge difference. While at UofC, doing OCI, it made no difference because I was only being compared to other UofC students. Out in the real world, my UofC degree gets my foot in a lot of doors. Now that I've had my first job and have learned to interview very well, I know that the sky is the limit. I still get calls from headhunters thanks to this degree, no one I work with does. I also get this presumption of intelligence from my coworkers. I sometimes wonder whether I should have gone to UCLA, who knows how that would have turned out. All is well that ends well, so I wouldn't change a thing. I can say that I owe a lot to the UChicago education, my current job, my wife, my kid, friends, maturity, meeting great professors (including Barack), and so on. I am beyond regret.
I do wish I had more money or no loans, but if I really wanted to I could start responding to the head hunters. I take that back, my wife won't let me. She wants me at home.
I would dump the kids and the wife and dedicate myself to the dollar. As the visionary Lil Wayne once wrote, "I got a lot of loot and I ain't lookin' for a lady."

Before I took the June LSAT, I'd been averaging around 170 on my practice tests. On the real deal, I ended up flubbing on the reading comprehension (which was very unlike me), so I've canceled my score. I'm really aiming for a 170+ in October to get into a T14 school. I took a 5 week virtual Powerscore class in the month preceding the June test. I've taken pretty much every modern LSAT (all the post 2000 ones).
With that said, what do I do between now and October to stay sharp and, hopefully, to even improve a little bit? Also, since I'll be going back to school in September, what should I plan on doing during that month of classes when I won't be able to fully devote myself to LSAT studying?
are you saying it was no "cakewalk?"

Is the new 400-page logic games bible worth the upgrade over the "old" version? Thoughts?

My problem with AA is that it totally ignores white people who live in the same circumstances as the URM's and relegates them into not attending college.
These poor schools are not all black, nor all hispanic, there are white people there too living in the same conditions / same background whom for all intents and purposes get left behind.
I went to one of these schools. I am white, I went to a school that was 88% black, 8% hispanic, 3% white, 1% other. The school was ranked second to last in the north texas area in 2003, the school ranked last was closed down by the state.
I was fortunate and had grandparents with money who paid for my undergrad. My non URM friends were not so lucky, most of them (while intelligent) if they did anything at all, never progressed farther than trade school.
Nobody gives a load of *&^%. It's all about providing a tangible incentive to garner students from races that have TRADITIONALLY BEEN DENIED EDUCATION. I.e, Native Americans (the white man taking their land and slaughtering them), blacks ("hey, it's some white folks in a big ship! let's see what they want!") and, to a lesser extent, Hispanics.
