« on: January 26, 2009, 03:49:59 PM »
First I'd like to say congratulations to all the recently accepted students! Getting into BC Law becomes harder every year.

Second, I would highly encourage you all to consider attending the Accepted Students Day which is preliminarily scheduled for Friday, March 27, 2009.

Third, if you identify yourself as a minority student, please send me a message on here if you would like some very helpful information about events and resources geared toward you.

Also, if anyone has questions feel free to post or message me.

Studying for the LSAT / THE LSAT NEEDS TO BE MODERNIZED.
« on: April 25, 2008, 01:39:27 PM »
Can someone please explain why the LSAT is still paper-based and not computerized like the GRE?

It's ridiculous.

Mistakes
#1
I sent out the wrong e-mail address to UCLA, thus bouncing every single e-mail they sent me for an entire half year and missing a bunch of important information. I realized this mistake at the point when they waitlisted me. 

#2
Not taking an LSAT prep course.

#3
Asking for recommendations only a couple months before I needed them, instead of earlier.

Minority Topics / Latino/as interested in top law schools
« on: April 23, 2008, 03:03:41 PM »
If you identify yourself as a Latino/a, feel free to message me to ask questions or just to hear about tips for getting into a prestigious law school without having "perfect" credentials.

(I prefer for you to message me rather than post a question on here because I get e-mail notifications when I receive personal messages.)

Anyone surprised by the fact that UHouston and Villanova were tied last year, and are 13 rankings apart this year?

Any other big tie breaker?
