Studying for the LSAT / Re: June LSAT
« on: June 16, 2008, 07:31:40 PM »

Speaking of which- anybody have any idea how long it takes to get scores back?

I thought I saw July 7th somewhere, no?

That is the 'official' date.  But they always manage to get it out prior to that date, and July 4th is a Friday, so 99.9% sure we will get it July 3rd, Thursday.

Why would they be more likely to put them out on Thursday the 3rd than Friday the 4th? Probably a dumb question, but just wondering.

Also, will they e-mail them to us directly, or do you check on, or what?

It would be hard to get into a top-10 school with a mid-160s score anyways, and most people score a few points lower than their practice tests .  If you think you scored in the low 160's, then you shouldn't cancel.

We'd all love to randomly score higher than our highest practice score on the real thing, but your score seems like it will probably be right around where you should expect.  Keep the score.  Then, if you decide to take again once you see it, then do it.

Good luck.

and had the dancing passage as well

I concur. The real reading section had a passage on social psychology and groupthink, and a passage on oil drilling. My test only had one reading section, so it must have been real. I had an experimental games section; I screwed up on one of them, and I really hope it was on the "right" one.

The real games section (I only had one) had one about CD's, one about layers of cake, one about dancers, and...I can't really remember the other.

Dilettante, my fears are the same as yours.  I walked out feeling like a million bucks about how I had done- however, I am noticing that many other posters are feeling the same way.  Should be an interesting time till we get scores back...

Supposedly it takes about 3 weeks before you'll be able to access your score online.

Gonna be a LONG wait!

General Off-Topic Board / Re: WII

The results of this thread are going to be skewed in favor of Wii's because they are mentioned in the thread title, while the PS3 is not.  Therefore, those who are interested in Wii's are going to be more likely to click on the thread, while those who like PS3's are going to be no more likely than anyone else to do so.

Having said all of that, I've never played either.  However, my fiancee wants a Wii because her best friend told her about that fitness game.


Law School Admissions / Re: Will the LSAC actually raise my GPA?

A- = 3.66

Also, A+ = 4.33. My school counted A+ as 4.0, so when LSAC redid my GPA it boosted it by .06.

My school doesn't have A+'s...A is the highest grade.  This doesn't seem fair, considering the fact that I have often scored 98+% in classes, and they've only counted as A's.  How will this affect me?

Law School Admissions / Will the LSAC actually raise my GPA?
« on: May 28, 2008, 08:13:48 AM »
As of now, I have a 3.76 (I'm finishing my junior year).  At my school, an A- is a 3.6.

I've heard that the LSAC counts an A- as 3.65.  Is this true?

I only skimmed through this topic, but in regards to the original post, I know twin sisters who graduated from different law schools about a couple of years ago; one went to Cornell and the other to St. John's.  While they are both making very good money, the one who went to St. John's started and continue's to make the higher paying salary. 

Someone sounds bitter about being waitlisted at Cornell! j/k
