Studying for the LSAT / Re: Retaking the LSAT and what schools think

Yes I realize some of these may not be where you want, but I actually don't know where they all are  ;)


Law School Admissions / Re: Retake Criteria
« on: October 22, 2004, 08:36:46 PM »
If you scored 5 or more points lower than you normally do, retaking is a good idea. If you scored within 4 points of your usual score, you shouldn't bother UNLESS you plan to prepare more thoroughly. Your score normally drops a few points on test day because of nerves. Unless you prepare better, you're likely to get the same score again

Law School Admissions / Under represented states

I can't remember where I heard this but is it true that law schools try to take students from every state. And if so, does that mean that people from little states like Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Dakotas, etc have an advantage, almost like an URM?

Law School Admissions / Re: School's Mean GPA/LSAT score

So if my LSAT mean was 150, does anyone know what law schools will think of that? and what my score would have to be to be impressive?

Law School Admissions / Academic Summary Report

How long after your transcipt has been processed does it take for Academic Summary Report to show up?

I doubt anyone reading these essays would assume YOU'RE mentally ill just because someone in your family was.  That would be like assuming the guy who wrote about raising his brother's kids was a drug addict because his brother was.

What do you think they would do if you were mentally ill, but could still do well in law school? Do you think there is a stigma still attached to diseases such as severe depression/anxiety or the like. I think I could write a great personal statement on what it is like to grow up "sick" but the last thing I need are anymore red flags, especially since the ps is suppose to be positves. But what if mental illness caused you to be a better person?

What was the ps on the dead grandma about?

I thought about doing a hard luck, but it was more personally directed. I too am nervous that adcomms would view me as a risk, despite the fact that I was sick throughout all of undergrad and still managed to pull off a 4.0

Has anyone used any of the "starting from scratch" or questionnaires services for developing a personal statement? I am kind of stuck on what to write or moreso for to structure it. If so was it a good or bad experience? I don't want something that sounds like it comes out of an essay bank.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Chicago Kent?

I know a girl who went there. She said it was a good school and she has a good job now that pays imo really well. I think it is more of a local school, so if you want to stay in Chicago it is a good bet.

If he spelled your name correctly in the very beginning, then obviously the misspelling is a typo.  You aren't going to be rejected for a professor's typo.  Stop obsessing and go work on a PS or something.

this is the point that I was trying to make ... I don't think an addendum is all that hot of an idea though  ;) since it is suppose to be disclosed.

I was joking, but I got the problem fixed. Luckily he sent it to me before sending it out. Apparantly he wanted me to read through it to make sure there weren't any mistakes.
