Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Anyone hear from PEPPERDINE?
« on: April 27, 2005, 02:36:45 PM »
Has anyone heard from Pepperdine?

I applied there just prior to the deadline on March 1st, having taken my LSAT in FEB. I am curious to know whether or not they send out their accepted/rejected letters all at the same time.


Thank you.

163...its been a pleasure talking to all of you...wanted to get in the 170s but its not worth advice to everyone...just take the damn test, dont take it too seriously..dont get nervous...just be cool and get on with your life...its just the first step in your career...even if you got in the low 150s take your score and move on.

Bye everyone...already applied to U.Miami, Forham, Loyola, Pepperdine see you at one of those schools in the fall.

March 7th.

Everyone relax, theres nothing you can do about your score now...its already determined.  Just fill out your apps. March 1st is Tuesday.

I took the June test but cancelled the score.  In October, I scored 2 points below my target.  I don't think I did much better last Saturday.  I have some worries that I may score lower in December because of the curve, but I'd have to do substantially worse to lower the point average.  Because of that, I'm contemplating cancelling again, but that would probably be frowned upon.  If all the cards fall right though, I could score up to 4 points higher, and I'd write an addendum hoping that they'll take the higher score. 

What should I do?

Just out of my business experience I would say that a second cancellation would be worse.

One cancellation is most likely ignored by the admissions administrators but when you get to two they may say whats wrong with this guy/girl.  If you scored 2 points below your target I would have just kept that score.

I believe I scored probably 10 points below my target on the Dec test just because I had to get up so early to get to the test center and did not really focus like I would have liked until the 3rd - 5th sections which I breezed through and did very well on.

I'm taking it again in Feb.  The law schools I want to go to shouldnt mind.

The only thing about a canceled score is that it counts as one of your 3 tests that you are able to take over a 3-year period. Since you've only taken one, and you're pretty confident about your LSAT abilities, I wouldn't worry about it. Adcoms won't count a cancel against you, espcially one from fall of your junior year.

Do a little practice every week to keep your skills up between now and June, then give yourself 2-3 weeks of turbo-studying before the test. (FF just took the test in October, so one week was enough for him - you'll have several months between tests.)

Good luck!

I wouldnt recommend the turbo studying.  I did that and maybe burnt myself out a bit.  This is not a memorization type test like the MCAT its more techniques.  I would recommend just doing a bit of studying the final week before the test.

You have plenty of time maybe a practice test every two weeks and you're good to go.

This test in the final analysis really boiled down to this

1 difficult LR

a somewhat difficult RC

easy games

and one normal to easy LR section.

I think you can get away with devoting a bit more time to one game or one RC i.e., going over the avg 8.45 minutes per game or RC passage.

This works well if you think by just spending a bit more time on the RC passage or game that you a can get one more right which you may likely get wrong due to being slightly rushed. 

When I take it in feb I will employ this stradegy.

Or for example people recieving accomodation that also write on Monday?

I'd convert to judhism and observe the sabbath if they take the same test as us.

It would be such an advantage to know that the LR (1) was somewhat different and a bit difficult and the games were easy.

bhvexille and F650GS:

Nothing like bullet w/no increment to get the heart racing...and people think that logic games are exciting! :D

God, I would start probably chucking rooks at the moderator's head...

Chess rules

offer to pay for a retake which there is no way in hell im doing.

Casa, how many times have you taken it.

I'm almost considering keeping my grade which is probably going to turn out to be 10 less then what I was getting on preps so about a 155 which sucks for me..then go through this again...

i just can't leave it though when I know i could have done better with a bit more prep.
