Law School Applications / Re: Transfering Down to a Lower Tier
« on: March 23, 2005, 10:30:27 PM »
The purpose in life is to go to the best school you can-  why sacrifice the very meaning of human existence for money?

I totally disagree with this, even if I could get into a top 3 school, I never would. I think what is important is to find a school you really want to be at.

As your chances, I have no idea, sorry, but I think your logic sounds reasonable me. However, I think if you stayed at tier 2, you would still have a good chance of getting a job in Florida. For example, our state university is a tier 3 and many law firms higher from neighboring states that are tier 2 and my friend who graduated from Notre Dame was iven a really good package deal to relocate hear to practice law.

Law School Applications / Re: Phi Beta Kappa

I have to kind of agree with GLOBAL on that, but those things really do add up, course so does applying to law school.

I am not familiar with this honor society, is it just for liberal arts and science majors?

If you recieve accomodated testing on the LSAT, should you write an addendum or address it in you PS. Do adcomms really look down on it?

I actually know A LOT about eating disorders, probably more than most of the people here, but since this is a law school board and not an ED board, that is to be expected. I have been a "purging anorexic" althroughtout college, and for those of you who don't know what that means, it because I barely tip the scales above 85 lbs and god chunk of it below 70. However being the people pleaser that I alng with 90% of the other eating disorder victims are, pulled A's all throughout college and I am no unusual circumstance. I just think it is a poor excuse

(hmmm maybe I should use this excuse to explain my insanely bad LSAT score)


Different disorders affect people in different ways. Your comment was still uncalled for. Not everyone can be as strong and self sufficient as you say you are. And what does being a people pleaser have to do with getting A's? Nobody gives a darn what grades you got, so you were only pleasing yourself. Something anorexic people DO NOT do, please themselves that is.

You make no sense, how could I have gotten A's only to please myself if anorexics do not please themselves. Getting A's has everything to do with peoplepleasing. Nobody worries abotu the straight A student because they seem self-sufficient and strong, it is the D and F student they woryy about. I am anything but strong and self-sufficient being as I still live at home because I can't deal with the stress of having to take care of myself and that I am the furthest thing from recovered, obviously.
As for my comment, it may have been harsh but seems like everyone here is out to make excuses for everything. She got bad grades because she got bad grades and that's that. I missed class to b/p or quizzes/assignments because I was in the ER which my professors refused to let me make-up.

LSAT horror stories / Re: what if i can't do well
« on: March 22, 2005, 02:11:21 AM »
LSAT...predictor? Well, I know a guy who graduated in the top of his class in law school.
He only scored a 141 on the lSAT.
...........of course he went to Cooley~~ :-\

Sorry, I don't knw much about Cooley, but how could he get in with a 145, is he an URM? When I looked at that number thing, sorry mind blanking, like the only school you could get into with that score was something along the lines of Law School of Peurto Rico.

Why would an eating disorder cause you to do bad in school?

LSAT horror stories / what if i can't do well

What if no matter what, you couldn't get a decent score on the LSATs?

This is my big fear. Despite hours of studying, several prep courses, and tons of practice, I have this sinking feeling that I am doomed not to do well. My first test proved this point. I know in general that the LSAT is suppose to be a good indicator of how well you succeed in law school, but I truly believe I am an exception to the rule. My SAT score was laughable as well, though I almost finished with my undergrad, finishing in the top 3% of my class, been selected as student of the month, and mangaged to get almost all As while be plagued with several severe mental illnesses (which I think are best not best mentioned to schools). I just wish there was someway to bypass the LSATs or be let in on some type of special consideration to prove that I can do well.

Personal Statement / Re: How to write an addendum for low lsat score?
« on: October 24, 2004, 03:22:36 PM »
The only way you can do this is to take the test over. Law schools won't try to guess what your score would have been if... Plus, sorry to say this but, nerves are a poor excuse. If you got nervous on this test, what is to prevent you from getting nervous on the bar or exams in school.
