Recommendations / how many do they read?
« on: October 04, 2004, 01:38:58 AM »
Does anyone know how many law schools actually read? The LSDA said you can get as many as 3, so I chose two professors I know very well and one I know a little less but did really well in his class (second highest grade), but if they only read 2 I would prefer them to read the ones who really know me.

Personal Statement / some ps ideas - need input
« on: October 03, 2004, 12:13:41 AM »
I am trying to get started on my ps and am struggling with ideas. I have come up with a couple and want some input:
~moved from a big city to basically farm country and most of whom never leave
~went to Japan with a friend and stayed with a host family for a summer when I was 10
~went to France twice (once in 8th grade and again in 10), stayed with host families, traveled around, and observed school

but i don't really know how to tie that in to law school.

Studying for the LSAT / increased score with more time?
« on: October 02, 2004, 11:43:59 PM »
Back to the accomodation, and people please don't be mean.

As an experiment, I am curious if any of you without any type of diability have ever taken a practice with more time and if so how much did you score improve?

The reason I am asking is, my dad said that for the average person their raw score would only increase slightly and I just want to know if this is true.

Sorry edited to clarify: I don't mean umlimited time, but maybe time and a halh (52.5 minutes per section) and not what you think, I want actual results.

LSAT horror stories / feel like giving up
« on: September 23, 2004, 12:12:05 AM »
I am seriously thinking of giving up. I have studied so hard and my scores still basically suck. I want this so bad, and honestly there is nothing else I want to do in life. Basically I am scoring in the lower 150s, but I at 3.97 from a state school in the middle of nowhere. I took hard classes though, and can get good recommendations. Is there any hope for me? I am sure like everyone else, I really want to get into a top school, mostly because I want the challenge. My school is a football school, so I surrounded by people just trying to pass. I want to move beyond that type of environment so much, but I fear my scores will hold me back.

Studying for the LSAT / exp. question.
« on: September 15, 2004, 06:22:14 PM »
I don't know if anyone can answer this, nut if the June LSAT had RC as its experimental section, does that mean the October one won't have 2 RC sections? Also will the June RC exp. show up on the October test or is there more of a time lapse?

Law School Applications / interviews
« on: September 11, 2004, 01:09:12 AM »
I am thinking about applying to Northwestern, which is one of the few schools that sill do interviews. Does anyone know what kind of questions they ask? Also do you request an interview before or after submitting your application?

Studying for the LSAT / diagnostic course hypothesis
« on: September 11, 2004, 12:27:12 AM »
Okay, maybe I just came uo with this to make myself feel better, but I was wondering if perhaps cousres like Kaplan, TestMasters, etc, pick out the hardest test for the daignostic. The reason being that since most promise a refund if your score doesn't improve, if you get a really low score on the diagnostic, you are not only guaranteed a higher score, plus you are more likely to take their class. I just completed mine for TestMasters and thought it was so much harder than any of the practice problems I had been doing, plus one of the logic problems was missing a key word in the clues. What do you all think, do you think maybe they pick the hardest test?

Studying for the LSAT / dyslexia
« on: September 10, 2004, 12:59:28 AM »
I have pretty bad dyslexia, but I didn't get my paperwork in on time to get any accomodations. I scored 155 on my diagnostics, which I thought was harder than any of the practice problems I did. That score was without anything special, ie more time. I want to get into a top 15 and I know 155 isn't good enough, but I a 4.0. I am afraid if I wait till December I won't get in. Should I just try best in Oct. or wait?
